NEBCO was recently awarded the Business Continuity Award in the Trendsetter category at the Fourth Annual Command Alkon ELEVATE Award Ceremony. The accolade recognizes unique and innovative approaches to keeping operations moving in the midst of an unplanned disruption; such as a pandemic, economic crises, or natural disaster. The award criteria included eTicketing, Plant Automation, Logistics, Fleet Management, and Supply Chain Management.

The Excellence and Trendsetter Awards celebrate companies that drive success in their organization through the use of technology. Finalists were among organizations that have shown an effective and innovative approach to digitization.

NEBCO continues to use technology as an enabler for our operations. When COVID hit, using Command Alkon’s tech solutions, NEBCO was able to implement electronic ticketing within a matter of days, allowing contractors to approve deliveries on their mobile device and receive their tickets electronically.

Whether it is our Command Series system that dispatch needs to schedule and provide on-time delivery to our Ready Mixed Concrete customers, or the Lawson system that is used for key functions like payroll, HR and accounting, NEBCO continues to modernize our infrastructure to ensure critical systems are available to employees who rely on them to do their jobs.

This focus on technology being an enabler and our commitment to minimizing interruption to the business caused by natural disaster or other unplanned event, contributed to NEBCO receiving a formal acknowledgement of being a technology trendsetter in our industry.
