New Clients and How We Help Them

StockpileReports.com reached a new milestone recently: We have over 100 international clients, measuring over 200,000,000 tons of material with our patent-pending platform!

We are extremely proud to assist clients with the challenge of gathering, measuring, and maintaining accurate inventory of stockpiled materials. We’ve helped our customers measure stockpiles at over 1200 locations. Although stockpiles come in a vast variety of shapes, sizes, materials, locations and challenges, we’ve found that companies all over the world aren’t hiring us to just solve measurements.

To be frank, clients are hiring us because they don’t want write-offs. They want the quarterly inventory arguments to end.

Businesses want to measure smarter, and manage their inventory confidently.

Stockpile Reports is the only company providing accurate inventory results and performance insights for materials management companies that is scaleable and push-button simple. We enable our clients to end the uncertainly and large write-offs. 

As 2015 draws to a close, clients all over the world are measuring thousands of stockpiles and preparing for year-end inventory.  Our clients are getting consistent results using an iPhone, plane, or drone— with a minimum use of their resources. They’re making rock instead of counting it, and feeling confident in their report results.

We greatly enjoy meeting and training clients in person, and helping them solve their stockpile challenges at each site. After we leave, we’re confident that we’ve also assisted them in solving the challenge of inventory management.

Contact us, and find out how we can assist you. We’ll also be exhibiting at the World of Concrete Show in February in Booth N3247, and at AGG1/World of Asphalt in March, Booth 2851. We look forward to meeting you, and demonstrating how our solution provides consistent, bankable results.

A Successful AGG1 Exhibit

The team at Stockpile Reports had a great time ‘working the booth’ during last week’s Aggregates Academy & Expo and World of Asphalt Shows in Baltimore, Maryland. AGG1 Academy & Expo is owned by the National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association (NSSGA).

This year’s event featured industry-focused educational programming and exhibits showcasing new technologies and innovations in equipment, products and services. So, of course we were there!

This year’s convention was the most successful to date with more than 7,500 attendees from 50 countries, 10,000 educational session tickets purchased, and 135,000 square feet of space taken by 450 exhibitors.

In addition to making new contacts, the team in Stockpile Reports’ booth used this opportunity to strengthen existing relationships with customers and announce our new monthly aerial subscription offering. Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth! We’ve already signed up for the 2016 show in Nashville.
