Real-time Information System - Critical Information on the Status of your Paving Operations

eRoutes is real-time information and traceability system intended for road construction.

eRoutes provides the following services:

  • AcquiEx: Coordination of operations between plants and jobs
  • AcquiLab: Capturing and measuring production-related data
  • eWatch: Energy efficiency assessment for hot mix plant
  • Tick2DB: Automatic capture, data extraction and transfer into database of loadout tickets
  • Inventory Management: A web based portal for viewing Materials Used, Total Mix Produced and Total Sales on a per plant level.

  Coordination between plants and jobs is now a more exact science.

Information access on a paving projects status is made a lot more efficient with AcquiEx. Everyone involved in paving projects gets the information they need automatically and directly to their desktop computer or Internet enabled mobile phone. Data are captured from load-out sites and sent to eRoutes web servers where data can then be retrieved by authorized users. Any brand and type of control system and load-out software can be connected.

Truck Fleet Optimization Tools help decide the number of trucks needed based on paver flow rate and round trip duration.

Multiple types of exportable reports available:

  • Deliveries per Customer
  • Deliveries per Customer per Plant
  • Deliveries per Job
  • Deliveries per Job per Product
  • Deliveries per Product
  • Deliveries per Truck
  • All tickets
  • Customizable reports upon request included

Multiple types of alerts (SMS/Email):

  • Every Ticket Printed
  • Running Totals
  • Every Ticket Printed
  • First ticket of the day
  • First ticket of a job
  • Ticket Field Match
  • User configurable filters and alerting intervals

On-demand wireless reports for your smartphone:

  • Tickets by Job
  • Tickets by Plant
  • Tickets by Customer
  • Tickets by Customer by Plant
  • Tons per hour


Remote telemetry for asphalt and concrete plants

eRoutes AcquiLab™ application captures production-related data from hot mix plants and stores it on eRoutes™ cloud servers.

Real-time alerts and reports are available by email and on smartphones while long term archiving and data mining helps the diagnosis of production related problems.

The solution is compatible with most control systems. In the worst compatibility case, data are automatically extracted from the production log when printed. The number and type of data differ per system and range from data of the production log to basically all the data handled by the control system.

Key features are:

  • Detect drift between inventory and production and sales
  • Provides real-time alerts on cell phones on out of tolerances data
  • Rates your plant on key indicators
  • Extract professional reports quickly when questions arise.
  • Reduces the time spent by QC/QA technicians on the road
  • Provides clues to equipment managers regarding improvement
  • Compares plants on key indicators
  • Measures efficiency of corrective measures

Example of data monitored:

  • Mix temperature
  • A/C percentage
  • Aggregate temperature
  • Feeders flow and percentages
  • No flow indicators
  • First production today
  • First production of a mix
  • Silo levels

^Top   Where environment meets money

Energy loss factors in hot mix heating and drying processes is defined by the ratio of actual energy used on theoretical amount of energy needed to accomplish the task. The task here consists of taking a given amount of raw material (say daily tonnage of aggregates) containing a percentage of water, from an ambient temperature to about 300° Fahrenheit, evaporating the water in the process. The amount of energy needed to accomplish such a task is easily found once one has the underlying data: ambient and output temperatures, percentage of water, and total tons produced. The amount of energy needed can be compared to the actual amount of energy provided by the quantity of fuel used multiplied by the energy available in each unit (gallons, cubic feet, etc.) of that specific fuel. A "good" loss factor is 1.15. This means that the heating process actually took 15% more energy than it should have. A typical loss factor ranges from 1.13 to 1.50. It is very hard to go lower than 1.13, but bringing a loss factor from 1.3 to 1.2 is not a difficult task to do and saves more than $35,000 per year on a 100,000 T/year plant. Calculating and watching that loss factor is the purpose of the eWatch application of eRoutes.

Reducing energy loss factor in hot mix heating & drying process saves big dollars and preserves the environment.

^Top   Universal Ticket Capture And Import Into Accounting.

The eRoutes Tick2DB application intercepts and extracts information from truck tickets and sends it to a database where it can be exported to invoicing and accounting software.

The system uses the Internet or the Enterprise Intranet to send the tickets to eRoutes server in real-time.

Export formats can be built in the application. The resulting file is saved on the user PC, ready to be imported in any ERP or invoicing software.

Inventory Management

Our eRoutes™ Inventory Management is a web based portal for viewing Materials Used, Total Mix Produced and Total Sales on a per Plant level.

Data is automatically captured from both the production and scale computer systems and transmitted to eRoutes. Collected data is than put into comprehensive reports for quick and easy viewing.

Material Usage Dashboard

  • A summarized cumulative material usage on a per plant per mix basis broken down by material type in that mix.

Material Usage Report

  • Detailed material usage report giving cumulative totals broken down by period and mix selected.

Overview Report

  • Gives a breakdown and comparisons of total material used, total mix produced, total sales and scrap.

Material Usage Calendar

  • Displays a quick view of the total material used per day in a calendar format.
