Earthwave Technologies would like to recognize and thank our new customer, Manatts, for selecting Fleetwatcher as their construction telematics solution in conjunction with the Iowa DOT for the Highway 69 paving project just south of Ames, IA.
With Manatts' use of Earthwave’s wireless technology on a combination of both company-owned and third-party trucks and load cycle analysis software specifically developed for paving contractors, both Manatts and the Iowa DOT are excited about the potential of significant gains in their respective operations.
State Construction and Materials Engineer, Greg Mulder of the Iowa DOT believes this will positively impact and improve upon an E-Construction initiative of moving towards a paperless ticketing system with electronic verification of materials being delivered to the job. “This has the potential of saving a significant amount of time and money for the DOT by eliminating the inefficiencies and safety risk factors associated with inspectors manually checking truck tickets to verifying weight and material being delivered to the jobsite. Inspectors’ time could be freed up to do more quality inspections rather than being a ticket-taker and pushing paper,” states Greg.
