Interface Logic Systems is partnering with several of our clients in the aggregates industry to participate in an electronic ticketing pilot program sponsored by The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. E-ticketing reduces the reliance on paper scale tickets and enhances data collection, project management, and material tracking.
Allowing jobsite foremen and inspectors to access information on incoming material by browsing data on handheld devices will not only improve productivity, but will improve jobsite safety by keeping them out of lanes of incoming and departing traffic.
Electronic tickets improve productivity for material suppliers, contractors and state officials through more efficient data processing and analysis as well as quicker and more accurate billing and payment. ILS’ e-ticketing program will initially focus on the aggregates industry, but asphalt and concrete projects are planned for the future.
For PennDOT projects, even existing ILS ScaleQ applications can be modified for database compatibility, and a new service developed by ILS will run on scale computers and will, on schedule or in near real-time, send data to the PennDOT e-ticketing server. State inspectors and contractors will be able to review material and enter inspection results via a browser or portable device app.
PennDOT’s goal for full implementation is 2024, but will be dependent on review of the current pilot projects. ILS is pleased to be participating in these pilot projects and is eager to work with producers and contractors throughout the state in the coming months and years.
