Bergkamp InPave® Technology Named To Asphalt Contractor Top 30 Editor's Choice Awards for 2015
Bergkamp Inc. was recently selected by Asphalt Contractor magazine as a 2015 Top 30 Editor's Choice Award recipient for its intelligent InPave® Technology. In making their selection for award recipients, the Asphalt Contractor editorial staff looked at a set of criteria that included longevity and consistency in the market, dependability, productivity and innovation. The InPave Technology Pothole Patching Management System, which is standard on Bergkamp's FP5 Flameless Pothole Patchers and SP Series Spray Injection Pothole Patchers, monitors and manages pothole patching performance for government agencies and contractors. It was chosen as one of the industry's preferred products based on feedback from asphalt construction equipment owners and end users, as well.
As potholes are repaired, InPave Technology automatically gathers performance information and transmits the data back to a cloud-based server. The process' web-based technology can be retrieved from any computer with Internet access, via secure login. Data from the field can then be used to create customizable reports that assist managers and owners in evaluating current and historic production data. The information can be used to verify patching performance and material usage, troubleshoot pothole problems and help increase efficiencies. Data gathered includes location and quantity of potholes repaired, time and material used for each repair, material levels and temperatures. In addition, the data can be matched with specific crew information and multiple sources of the material. By analyzing this data, agencies and contractors can modify their pavement management plans to maximize road quality and use of allocated budget. Data can be exported to an Excel document or a shape file for agencies that use GIS, flowing seamlessly into current pavement maintenance systems.
"Equipment is the lifeblood of our readers' businesses – the right equipment choices can mean the difference between a profit or a loss on a project," says Lisa Cleaver, Asphalt Contractor editor. "Every asphalt contractor has his or her favorite piece of equipment. Some pieces of equipment have proven their prowess for adding profits. Others are popular for their ease of use and high productivity. And then there are those exciting new introductions which offer the latest innovations. To honor those products which achieve these ideals, we offer this year's Top 30 Editor's Choice Awards." Additional information on 2015 award recipients can be found in the May 2015 issue of Asphalt Contractor and online at ForConstructionPros.com.
Bergkamp is proud to have won this award.
