CEMEX Go uses the latest digital-industrial technology available through desktops and mobile devices to allow customers to place orders, track shipments, manage invoices and make payments for CEMEX’s building products including bagged and bulk cement, ready-mixed concrete and aggregates. Customers can access their account at any time and the information is delivered in real-time - just as we can all order shopping, bank online or book holidays directly from our smartphones.
In 2017, CEMEX Go was introduced onto the markets in Mexico and US. Today, 50 customers in the UK have registered to do business via CEMEX Go. Michel Andre, country president CEMEX UK, said: “CEMEX Go is the first platform of its kind offered in our industry and creates an experience for our customers that is superior to anything that has been provided in the past. For our customers, doing business with CEMEX UK will be revolutionised and will give real benefits in terms of time and efficiency.”
One of the customers who will be using the new platform is Technic Concrete Floors. The company constructs concrete floors using traditional mesh reinforcement, steel and polyfibres and has worked extremely closely with CEMEX UK, using their ready-mixed concrete. The floors are constructed in industrial settings throughout the UK.
Darren Murgatroyd, Technic Concrete Floors director, said: “The introduction of CEMEX Go will undoubtedly bring massive benefits to our business. We will be able to track the deliveries and look at efficiency levels/wastage, which in turn will support our environmental strategies and improved invoicing process. We are looking forward to working with CEMEX on this new digital platform.”
CEMEX Go is just one of several major initiatives aimed at embracing the digital age and offering everyone in the industry the opportunity to become smarter and more efficient. Earlier this year, the first CEMEX Hackathon was held in Cambridge, UK, an event which brought together self-starters and inspired thinkers. The aim was to create a model to help the company mobilise its employees so that innovation becomes part of every employees’ DNA.
