Fights over the amount of material bought, sold, produced, or delivered have been a long standing battle in the construction industry. Resolving those disputes requires bringing in measurement crews, taking days, and often costing several thousand Rand. With the Stockpile Reports iPhone app, construction professionals can measure the material themselves, right away, for free, getting measurement results before the time it would take a measurement crew to even show up.

Stockpile Reports releases new iPhone appConstruction professionals now can get measurements whenever they want, ending the age-old battle over material volumes, creating smooth, accurate transactions for everyone.

A current customer says, “Instead of having to send expensive trained specialists to remote sites, any worker on site can take a measurement with their phone. Now, we just walk around the pile and the app gives us our volumes quickly. It’s a game changer.”

“We’ve been serving the large enterprise construction materials industry around the world since 2012, with our inventory management platform. Now we’re making our patented measurement technology available to everyone,” says David Boardman, CEO of Stockpile Reports. “With the drastic improvements in mobile phone camera technology, combined with computer vision and machine learning, and with the exponential growth in processing power, we are able to make a simple, easy to use solution available to the entire market. We’re on a mission to make expensive and time consuming disputes a thing of the past.”

After downloading the app, users can start measuring right away. Pointing the iPhone camera at the surface of the pile as a user walks its perimeter, the app captures high resolution imagery. The imagery is uploaded to the cloud where it gets processed quickly, automatically generating a detailed report. In multiple independent tests the measurements were found to be within 1% to 2% of LiDAR.

“We’ve already rolled out the app out in the UK, and are now making it available in the South African and New Zealand markets,” said Tony Jacobson, VP of Product at Stockpile Reports. “The app was designed to work with free-standing stockpiles up to 3 000 cubic metres.” Companies needing to measure larger piles, or piles in bins and bunkers, can contact Stockpile Reports about their enterprise solution.

Stockpile Reports is based in Redmond, WA, United States, and runs an enterprise inventory management system, enabling companies to scale their inventory monitoring across their entire operation. Their service is used by hundreds of companies at nearly 3 000 locations in 25 countries around the world.

On 9 May 2017, Stockpile Reports received a major industry award from Asphalt Contractor Magazine. “This year’s Top 30 Editor’s Choice Awards reflect those products that have the ability to add profits and increase productivity. The list includes several exciting new introductions that offer the latest innovations,” says the editor of Asphalt Contractor Magazine.
