Spectrum® Materials Management Construction Software

Solutions that fine-tune your aggregate operations for better efficiency.

If your contractor or construction company has a materials plant, aggregate pit or quarry, you understand the importance of tight material controls. Spectrum’s Materials Management solution, including integration with scale applications, gives you the data and the reporting tools you need to ensure accuracy and efficiency in your operations.

 

ONE SYSTEM FITS ALL

Fully integrated with Spectrum’s Inventory Control and Job Cost functionalities, Spectrum Materials Management ensures you have up-to-date inventory records and timely billing for materials.

Spectrum Materials Management Construction Software allows you to:

  • Interface with a variety of scale software packages
  • Accommodate standard and special rates
  • Automatically generate invoices

adaptable and scalable

Adaptable and scalable to all of your material needs. If you rely on a third-party to haul materials, Spectrum Materials Management helps you verify their time and mileage with freight cost reconciliation. You can compare the invoice from your vendor to tickets from your scales application, ensuring you are never overcharged.

Running an aggregate pit, materials plant or quarry, you know that sometimes scales can break or hauling must be put on hold. As a complete construction management software solution, Spectrum was designed to handle wait time in addition to hauling management.
