Spectrum® Equipment Field Management bridges the gaps between the office, the equipment yard, and all of a company’s job sites with an array of tools that deliver the right information to the right people wherever they are working.

“In the office, where fleet investment and management decisions need to be made, access to comprehensive data is critical. Spectrum provides this through tools that allow timely and accurate data to be gathered in the field and synced with Spectrum to produce immediate results and analysis,’ said John Chaney, Dexter + Chaney’s CEO and co-founder. “Having this data and optimizing the use and care of your equipment fleet can be the difference between jobs that make money and jobs that lose money.”

Dexter + Chaney is also pleased to be able to showcase a number of mobile apps it has designed for the construction industry. Among them:

  • Project Plan Room, created to collaboratively share project documents in the field
  • Equipment Field Entry, an app designed to track and collect data on equipment such as fuel consumption and meter readings
  • Payroll Time Entry, an app to collect and update payroll information for staff working remotely in the field
  • Field Tech, an app created to allow work orders to be generated in the field, manage billing and inventory and streamlining payment processes.

“Our mobile solutions have been at the forefront of our latest technology advancements with Spectrum,” Chaney said. “These tools expand access to data, streamline operations and create more collaborative working environments, and we’re excited to be able to present them to World of Concrete attendees.”
