PORTSMOUTH, NH--(Marketwired - Mar 4, 2014) - Continuing to re-define the future of construction operation software, industry leader B2W Software today announced an agreement with Earthwave Technologies -- further powering accurate, efficient delivery of construction equipment telematics data. The agreement enables day-to-day construction tasks to be automated and tracked via mobile tablets -- dramatically reducing paperwork and manual reporting -- all while offering real-time data flow to and from the field.
B2W's ONE (Operational Networked Elements) Platform is the first suite of construction management software that provides everyone from office managers to foremen in the field with direct insight into the construction process. Four separate modules create one unified suite -- including B2W Estimate, B2W Track, B2W Dispatch, and B2W Maintain. The end result is a single point of data entry, enabling instant cross-module resource visibility and collaboration -- as well as significantly improved operational efficiency and accuracy.
Enhancing the power of ONE, Earthwave's Fleetwatcher was built specifically for the heavy equipment contractor. The wireless fleet management system permits users to make better decisions regarding fleet utilization and productivity. Providing real-time access to core information from any location, the offering streamlines the entire construction management telematics process.
"B2W Software has always been committed to helping customers maximize the construction lifecycle in the most efficient and cost-effective means possible," said Paul McKeon, CEO of B2W Software. "Earthwave's telematics solution will significantly complement our strategic focus to facilitate construction operations -- further enhancing our position in both field tracking and fleet maintenance. Our joint efforts will significantly push forward the future of machine-to-machine advancements for both hardware and software."
"This multi-faceted partnership enables us to significantly expand our addressable market by bringing customers integrated solutions that increase efficiencies of their IT infrastructures. We are working very closely with B2W to bring new solutions to market that improve our customers' overall efficiencies -- thus eliminating the manual process of gathering data from each piece of equipment," said Larry Baker, CEO of Earthwave.
Specifically, the combined solution now provides such core benefits as:
- Online and offline modes for spotty Internet or limited cellular coverage
- Instant analysis of daily production reports and dashboards
- Full capture of meter readings and equipment hours
- Instantaneous approval submission
- Real-time dashboards for production reports
- Full tablet functionality, such as voice-to-speech for field note entry
- Customizable user interface by business unit
- Full AEMP Compliance for multi-vendor equipment support
A Full demonstration of the combined solution will be presented at CONEXPO-CON/AGG in Las Vegas from March 4 - 8.
