Better Sequencing Results in Substantial Savings
Without intelligence software, contractors rely on intuition and experience to plan their jobs. Even for the most experienced contractors, mistakes happen, which can lead to dirt double handling or (expensive) long hauls. These human errors lead to increased trucking costs and lower margins. Even a small deviation from the optimal path of haul roads can cost contractors a fortune in lost margins. For example, moving just 10% of 1 million cubic yards suboptimally can lead to losses of $250,000 or more.
TraceAir has accurate cut/fill measurement and haul road tools that maximize efficiency and help teams plan jobs in the most efficient way possible. For example, a grading foreman could take hours to perform a visual inspection of the job, review drawings, and consult an engineer for calculations in CAD before starting operations. Using site intelligence software allows the foreman to compare current site conditions to design grade and plan the optimal haul road in about 10 minutes, being right on site and without needing to contact his engineer.
