HaulHub Technologies Launches the First DOT App Designed by Paving Contractors to Meet New Job Letting Requirements
HaulHub Technologies, the Boston technology firm powering the heavy construction industry with state-of-the-art, mobile- and web-based solutions, announced today that the latest addition to its platform: DOTslip.
The DOTslip app extends HaulHub Technologies’ digital ticketing solutions to a standalone app built specifically by the paving contractor and material producer for the benefit of Departments of Transportation across the country.
With HaulHub Technologies, contractors and producers can digitally share tickets with their customers, crews, carriers, and project owner representatives. They maintain control of their operational data they share, without the need of intrusive, bulky, hard-to-maintain hardware devices.
The DOTslip app creates a digital replica of the paper slip and allows a contractor to invite a project engineer to receive a live feed of materials being ticketed at the plant.
“More and more state DOTs are moving to paperless tickets,” says HaulHub Technologies Founder and CEO Joe Spinelli. “Contractors support the concept of electronic tickets. Eliminating paper-based workflows is a common goal shared by contractors, producers and state agencies. The number one concern contractors have with the current solutions on the market is the privacy of their data. Contractors, producers, and state agency representatives need to be at the table at the asphalt pavement association level before the lettings go out for advertisement, to design a solution that works for all stakeholders. This is not simply a technical spec, i.e. a change to a mix design, which contractors might not be as sensitive to. We are talking about broadcasting personal and company data which has tremendous negative consequences if it is not handled in the right way.”
“Contractors and producers maintain complete control of their data and choose how the ticket information flows,” says HaulHub Technologies VP of Product Alisa Deychman. “A contractor can invite a project engineer from a state DOT to one or multiple projects and DOT personnel can review live feeds, daily project updates, and PDF copies of plant tickets in their inbox or cataloged on the web inside their account.”
DOTslip launched in December and is available in the Apple App Store, and via the web. A new pilot can be launched within days for full digital ticket integration.
