Command Alkon has revealed its next-generation platform, Command Cloud and Material Supply. Command Cloud serves as the latest evolution of the company’s CONNEX platform, featuring consumer-grade technological capabilities with reliability, scalability and NIST certified security.
Engineered as a technology ecosystem to supercharge heavy building materials operations, Command Cloud delivers the value of cloud systems, including integrations through an API-first approach, and modern user interface design. The platform will harness machine learning, generative AI, predictive analytics and IoT-enabled technologies.
The introduction of cloud native Dispatch – with over 60 customers live since its inception just a year ago – has enabled producers to plan, place and track orders, automate driver scheduling and daily planning, understand supply chain needs, predict schedule changes and order cancellations with AI and reduce back-office complexities.
Customer Portal, another member of the company’s cloud native portfolio that was launched in 2023, enables material buyers to self-serve and create, manage and track orders.
Command Alkon's latest solution, designed to automate the movement of raw materials to plants and construction sites, enables material producers to meet production demands while removing the complexities of managing inventory, ordering, billing and hauler management.
“It’s about so much more than just software,” said Ranjeev Teelock, chief product officer at Command Alkon. “We are innovators at our core; constantly learning, calibrating, and developing solutions that empower customers to tackle anything that gets thrown their way. That’s exactly what we’ve done with this evolution of Command Cloud, and we remain committed to replicating the value and benefits that ready mix customers have experienced with Command Cloud to suppliers and producers in the aggregate and asphalt markets. Our cloud transformation roadmap for these markets is currently being finalized.”
