ForneyVault®, an integrated construction materials testing platform, recently added Command Alkon to its expanding list of software integration partners. The interface allows their mutual customer, Titan Virginia Ready-Mix, LLC, to integrate its testing machine directly to the quality control process.
Titan Virginia uses the Command Alkon COMMANDqc software to validate the quality for its own internal ready-mix concrete products, which are shipped to its customers. COMMANDqc’s tools manage materials, mixes, tolerances, documentation and testing and analysis in one location.
ForneyVault links third-party software, testing machines, LIMS packages and ancillary equipment via a private cloud database. With ForneyVault, data flows seamlessly throughout the testing process, reducing the risk of errors, increasing compliance and driving more positive outcomes for labs of all types. To date, laboratories in more than 109 locations in five countries have logged over 1,000,000 tests with ForneyVault.
“As any ready-mix producer would agree, the industry is behind in technological implementation – for many reasons,” says Brandon Horton, Quality Manager, Titan America. “The benefits of technology to improve efficiency and accuracy are critical now more than ever. ForneyVault is a great tool to accelerate these improvements – reducing admin work when capturing data and allowing personnel to focus on real-time issues. Importantly, the system also safeguards against reporting errors when entering information, which, if not corrected, can lead to more wasted time behind a computer.”
“Forney’s decision to place their data in the cloud makes it easy to interface with COMMANDqc,” says James M. Shilstone, Jr., Product Owner, COMMANDqc. “Sharing data between the two programs eliminates the need for double entry and makes the test results available to the QC manager more quickly.”
“ForneyVault’s integration with Command Alkon’s software allows Titan’s quality control technician to lose the clipboard and pencil,” says Scott Grumski, Vice President, Platform Development, Forney LP. “The integration partnership reduces risk and advances compliance for Titan’s quality assurance program.”
