Command Alkon Features the Real Next Generation of Ready Mix Dispatch at World of Concrete Event Show

Command Alkon, the leading Supplier Collaboration Platform for Construction’s Heavy Work, is pleased to feature their dispatch and logistics optimization engine at World of Concrete, COMMANDoptimize. COMMANDoptimize is a powerful algorithmic engine that augments human decision making by considering millions of data elements in real-time and suggesting the most efficient plan for using the resources.

“True innovation for our industry is not about constructing new technologies which deliver the same results,” said Dave Donaldson, Optimization Business Unit Manager at Command Alkon. “Innovation comes by taking a disruptive force and harnessing it to benefit your goals. It should not be about overwhelming the dispatcher with more and more information; it should be just the opposite.  Let the engine digest all of that information, analyze it and then make suggestions on how to best use the resources available.”

The challenge presented to producers when discussing Optimization is, “How else are you going to achieve breakthrough results?”  Throwing more information at the dispatcher or adding more people and trucks does not solve the problem.  Better decisions must be made, and history has proven that in a highly dynamic dispatch and logistics environment this can be achieved with an integrated optimization engine.

“Our best people, absolute best people, could not and cannot do what COMMANDoptimize can,” said Ryan Bartholomew, CEO at Lauren Concrete. “There’s too many things going on and humans just can’t compete with the power of Optimization.”
