Web and mobile technology for better management of work site equipment

Dispatcher offers construction and public works companies a cloud management solution that enables them to optimise the use of their site equipment. In addition to managing their clients’ internal fleet, Dispatcher provides a link with construction equipment rental companies and allows them to accurately monitor leased equipment. The company will be present at the Intermat Paris trade show from 20 to 25 April 2015 in order to present its innovative solution offering construction and public works companies improved performance and efficiency.

Optimize equipment management in its entirety

Equipment represents the third most costly item on any construction site, thereby making it essential for it to be monitored in order to optimise its use and reduce management costs. Using leased equipment also represents 40% to 60% of equipment costs. It is therefore crucial for construction and public works companies to manage the use of equipment in its entirety, including internal fleet and leased equipment.

In this context, having the right equipment in the right place is strategic and the use of modern tools has become essential. That’s why Dispatcher has chosen to use the latest web and mobile technologies to boost communications and optimise operations in real time.

An innovative solution on the market

Thanks to the Dispatcher platform, instantaneous communication between the different stakeholders is now possible. Construction-site equipment needs are sent to the equipment manager/dispatcher who now simply has to allocate them internally or send quotation or booking requests to the equipment-rental company.

Dispatcher combines the temporal and geographical dimensions of the equipment thanks to a schedule-overview of the facility in addition to a map of the construction sites. On the site, Dispatcher provides incredible flexibility because employees can communicate their needs and report breakdowns or disruptions. The agency or dispatcher themselves enjoy greater visibility over equipment allocations and an operational history also makes reporting easier. As for the equipment-rental companies, they receive real-time quotation requests and can respond to them via their dedicate web platform, or via SMS.

Dispatcher’s mobile app is incredibly easy to use on site and the system is highly responsive, using SMS and notifications to facilitate use of the solution on the ground.
Being a cloud solution, deployment is fast and data exchanges are secure. Furthermore, thanks to the use of new technologies, the solution’s interface, with business-specific applications already in place with the client, is quick to implement.

Dispatcher relies on the simplicity of its mobile application for construction sites, as well as on the reactivation of its system, via text messages and notifications to facilitate the handling of the solution in the field.

Cloud solution, deployment is very fast and data exchanges are secure. In addition, thanks to the use of new technologies, the solution’s interfacing with business applications already in place with customers is quick to implement.

About Dispatcher

Dispatcher, a growing young business in the digital sector and construction and public works, was created at the start of 2013 by two SUPELEC engineers and former consultants of six years, both with an in-depth knowledge of construction and industry. The business is convinced that the new technologies will be deployed on construction sites over the next few years and that, subsequently, significant operational gains can be made.

Dispatcher’s ambition is to encourage and support digital technology on constructions sites. The year 2014 was dedicated to testing the product and concept in collaboration with the first clients who supported innovation within their company. Following this, 2015 was the year of expansion and commercial development.
