Booking Diary

Improve site safety for gate staff, drivers and site teams with a booking diary that can be configured to suit individual site rules and constraints, with automated reports on planned vs. actual activity and real-time infringement alerts to safety standards or non-scheduled deliveries.

Vehicle checks

Our system will capture FORS & CLOCS based vehicle check forms. We offer a mobile solution for gate staff linked with the Booking Diary. Ensure sites are safe and secure by automating the vehicle check process and logging information on a smartphone using our app.

Waste eTicketing

Monitor duty of care compliance by monitoring real life activity vs the plan. Our eTicketing system for waste movements captures transfer details at both collection and tipping points, and ensures accurate data is captured for duty of care compliance.

What PODFather’s construction customers have to say:

ANDREWS EXCAVATIONS

Andrews Excavations, the family run business running aggregate deliveries, waste recycling and tipper operations out of its East London headquarters, is rolling PODFather’s electronic waste ticketing solution out across its operation.  With a fleet of over 100 vehicles operating on construction sites across the South East of England, Andrews Excavations needed an advanced, yet easy to use, solution to replace its historically paper-based processes.  PODFather is now relied upon across the fleet to track vehicle movements and collect electronic proof of delivery notifications.

“PODFather is enabling us to eradicate paper tickets from our operation for good.  With the system in place we can manage our loads more efficiency and get real time visibility of what is going on where throughout the operation.  This has been a game changer for the whole team here at Andrews Excavations.”  Patrick McGinley, Project Lead at Andrews Excavations

ASHVALE HAULAGE

Ashvale Haulage, part of the M O’Brien plant hire group, is using PODFather to plan and manage the movement of its 70 tipper trucks carrying out a range of haulage, transport and earthworks services across its portfolio of construction customer projects.  Working with the UK’s biggest infrastructure solution companies it was imperative that Ashvale Haulage had the right technology in place to meet stringent guidelines for electronic waste and material tracking.   PODFather’s experience of doing just that, for some of the UK’s biggest operators, made it the obvious choice for the Ashvale Haulage team.

“Once our tippers are out on the road, we can use PODFather to keep track of who and what is moving where.  This real time visibility makes it so much easier when we need to move loads between vehicles or make sudden alterations to our schedules.  We can make changes without having to spend hours on the phone or churning through piles of paper tickets.  It will speed up invoicing too as jobs are completed, and proof of delivery recorded instantly.”  Jack Dowd, Transport Manager, Ashvale Haulage

LEEDALE

Leedale, the waste management, transport and environmental solutions provider, has eradicated paper tickets from its tipper operation, and slashed admin time in half having introduced PODFather’s earthworks and ePOD construction fleet management software to its growing operation.  With a fleet of 16 tippers and six grab trucks, and ambitious plans to expand the business, the Leedale team knew that paper processes of the past needed to be updated.  PODFather’s proven reputation within the construction sector, professional approach to sales negotiations and easy to use software solution made it the obvious choice for this forward-thinking business.  The Leedale team now uses PODFather’s load allocation, delivery tracking and electronic proof of delivery solution to manage the movement of aggregate and muck travelling from its Derbyshire HQ to its network of contractor, consultancy, property developer, public sector and private home owner customers.

“The PODFather solution is incredibly intuitive which has meant we’ve been able to roll it out quickly across our tipper and grab service divisions.  With PODFather in place we have real time visibility of what’s going on and can deal with any issues, delays or last-minute orders in a quick and efficient manner.  With no paper tickets we’ve been able to halve the amount of admin time we spend processing job information and we can invoice faster than before which is a big benefit to the business.”  Olive Walkup, Managing Director, Leedale
