After four years of prototype development with alpha users, Ironworks is now ready for full-scale development and is seeking to enlist seven additional large-scale contractors from around the globe to participate in the beta program to provide additional advice on Ironworks’ features and functionality.
“Ironworks changes the game of bidding and building work in the fiercely competitive infrastructure construction industry,” said Grant Lungren, president of Ironworks and Grantlun, creator of the Hard Dollar EOS/PXS. “Ironworks does this by managing a fleet like a job, with the performance of every machine planned, scheduled, budgeted and assessed, so machine-specific costs can be managed in detail.”
Lungren explained that Ironworks’ key functions related to equipment cost management include fleet information administration, renting and leasing, charge-rate management, client billing rate administration, dispatching, machine performance history and fleet analysis and optimization.
“Ironworks employs today’s data visualization and analytics technology to make expert equipment cost management easy,” he said. “Not every contractor has to use Ironworks, but they will have to compete against those who do.”
