"The Dufferin U-Track app works in a simple and effective manner
allowing registered customers to review and track their concrete
deliveries using the mobile application on their smartphone or tablet."
said Peter Moylan, General Manager, Dufferin Concrete. "The app uses
GPS technology to tell customers exactly where their delivery is - a
critical piece of information when dealing with a perishable material
like concrete. Customers can track their delivery from order to pour
and see up to seven days of future orders, allowing them to review the
order for accuracy, effectively manage their resources and plan their
job sites accordingly," he added.

excellence. Providing this type of application is not only an example
