Mago Embraces E-Ticketing with FleetWatcher in Kentucky

Family- owned since 1951, Mago Construction Company, LLC., headquartered in Bardstown, Kentucky, has asphalt plant and rock quarry locations throughout the state. They specialize in hot mix asphalt and cold mix asphalt; aggregates; road construction and asphalt paving services. 

Greg Reinert has been a part of the Mago team since 1981 working as an IT Consultant where he assists with initial implementation of new technology. Greg was a part of FleetWatcher’s integration when they onboarded it in July 2019 due to a contract request for a KYTC (Kentucky Transportation Cabinet) job. After the pilot was finished they became a customer and primarily use it for e-ticketing, having done a few DOT jobs since. 

What was the initial implementation and training like? “As with all new systems we ran into a few glitches, but had great support from Earthwave. I think everyone found it easy to use. Service and support is unsurpassed. The other day (early morning 7 a.m.), I emailed Sonia to see if she would call me later for a couple questions, within minutes she had responded to my email and we were on the phone. Everyone at Earthwave has been easy to work with and are always willing to provide a level of support that is hard to find.”

Where are they at with integration currently?  “We have all 9 asphalt plants integrated and the DOT will use FleetWatcher as the primary tool to get ticket information. Due to the Covid-19 virus outbreak we have been unable to fully implement FleetWatcher in our hauling fleet but even with partial implementation we believe it will help us get more efficient use of our resources.”

Learn how The Shelly Company Reduced Their CPT by 18%

  As FleetWatcher enters it's 20th Anniversary in 2020, we want to take a moment and highlight one of our loyal customers and share how their operations have improved since implementing our software.
 

The Shelly Company is Ohio’s leading limestone, concrete and asphalt paving company with more than 90 locations, servicing 81 of 88 counties in the state. The Twinsburg location has been using FleetWatcher just under 8 years and Chris Tomasch has been a part of the implementation since the very beginning. Chris is a Logistics Manager, overseeing the delivery of one million tons of asphalt and three million tons of aggregate every year.

Chris notes the changes he has seen: "We have excellent visibility of our fleet. We are able to identify any trucking issues in real-time allowing us to respond accordingly. FleetWatcher gives us accurate performance data which we can use for determining truck demand, reducing wait times and managing brokers. With the implementation and improvements in visibility of FleetWatcher we have reduced our cost per ton 18% over the past 4 years."

What is his favorite feature? "The best feature is the new “Quick Edit” feature of the shift tickets.  We are able to make fast, accurate adjustments with minimal effort. With the mobile app we have been able to better control last load outs, reducing the need to send trucks back to the plant to hold. Being able to track a job from a phone or I-Pad significantly reduces the time spent calling to find a truck."

What has their customer service experience been like? "Every time I reach out with a question or concern I get a response quickly, usually same day. Just this week I had 5 new trucks set up and none of them were tracking. I contacted Nik to see if he could determine the issue. I had a response in 10 minutes and was able to get them tracking. It’s also very helpful when their team makes a site visit, it gives our team a better understanding of the function and tools we need to be successful.

"There are many choices of GPS tracking programs available. FleetWatcher is very user-friendly and allows us to do more than just see where our trucks travel. We are able to set the parameters we want, to gather the data we need in a format we can use."

Customer Wolf Paving Featured in ForConstruction Pros

Great article in ForConstructionPros.com featuring our customer Wolf Paving Company. 

Ask many asphalt paving companies what they struggle with and we bet more than a few will say consistent product quality. The potential for this is low, but a risk that contractors take when they rely on other companies to produce mix for their paving operations. This is why Wolf Paving chose to invest in not one, but two asphalt plants for their business. Read the entire article here: https://bit.ly/2PDPe3r
