ControlBoard® is a real-time dispatch and scheduling fleet management system for the Commercial Construction industry. Offered by Congistics Corporation, it takes the idea of planning using a white board and allows it to be done electronically via a set of networked PC’s, smartphone, tablets, and the cloud, across an organization. Business rules, work flow and intra/inter-department collaboration can now be accomplished as part of managing the project.
ControlBoard combines the process of planning, scheduling, dispatching and managing resources assigned to jobs. Users can create weekly or monthly look-ahead schedules without the need to use a whiteboard to plan projects. Since it is a multi-user system, schedules can be created and shared across the entire enterprise. Resources can be allocated to jobs, equipment moves can be scheduled, and tasks can be dispatched to the proper people in one integrated system.
ControlBoard was created after carefully studying the business processes of fast paced construction companies moving million dollar assets in real time.

Specialty: Construction/heavy equipment
The vendor is extremely responsive and flexible. The product is also flexible, easy to use and easy to customize to your own circumstances.
I have very little bad to say about this product. For the money you spend you are getting a good value. The GUI is not as impressive as some if its more expensive competitors though.
Map out your business process first before you launch Control Board. If you are in the construction industry this product will very likely be a good fit for you but it is only as good as your planning before implementation.

A great software. The support is always a call away and responds fast with any issues or questions we have. A auto update would be a great addition. I would like to see a more complete report with minor change requirements in Excel. We come across glitches on occasion.
David from Safety Marking Inc
Control board has helped us grow and expand beyond anything would could have imagined. The filters are awesome for really breaking down what you need to get done. One place everyone can go to see what we have going on and where.
Nick from Compliance EnviroSystems
My experience with congistics' Control Board has been overwhelmingly positive. The software is incredibly functional and meets all of our needs. The only problem with congistics is that it takes some time to figure out which features benefit you and which do not. In the beginning, I attempted to use as many features as possible. I soon realized that i was spending too much time on scheduling (which is not my only task at work). Once I simplified my method of scheduling, I was able to make changes and updates much more quickly.
Formerly, we scheduled our jobs & equipment w/ excel spreadsheets. Congistics' Control Board was the only product I found that met my needs for a reasonable price.
We are a Sanitary & Storm water Pipeline evaluation firm with 115 employees and about 60 pieces of equipment moving around the Southeastern US.

We are a heavy civil construction company that uses Control Board on a daily basis. it is a vital tool for our business processes.
Todd from Tri Valley Water Trucks Inc.
After reviewing software for a dispatching solution for almost a year, 20 or 30 of them . This is by far the BEST. I've done the 'I'll hire a programmer to do custom software' and none of them stack-up to ControlBoard. I can't complain about one thing. If you need anything changed in the software pickup the phone and in less then 3 days I have an update and problem solved. Very reasonably priced, compared to the competition .
Keith from Guerrera Construction Company
Easier than a white board and it keeps history of what happened. Allows you to see what resources are available in the future and where all resources are at any time. You can do better planning which makes better use of resources and saves you money. Keeps track of rental equipment so you know when rental period is coming due.
Olaf from Air Solutions & Balancing, LLC
Mark with control board is fantastic for customer service and he is technically outstanding. He really knows his stuff. This has made implementation so much easier.
Cons: very very few, a couple minor technical items that we wish the software could do.
Again, overall, we are extremely pleased with the product.
Laura from PTG Event Services
Customer Service is always there for you and gets back to you by the end of the day if not sooner.
They have adapoted the program to work best for our company.
They are willing to show me different things available on their program that they feel will help our company.
The app is very easy to use and I love how it updates in conjunction to what I update in the program.
They check in every few months to see how it is going and to see if there are any updates that they can make it make it easier for us.
I really can not think of any
Richard from Axcess Industries
WE have saved so much time by allowing the manpower to review there own schedule. With the fast pace today schedules are changing all the way to the end of the day. This makes the communication so easy.
Joe from O'Connell Electric Company
Control Board is in a league of its own, after several years of research we finally found a product to meet our resource scheduling needs. Fast set up, easy to implement and crews can remotely view information without fear of accidentally changing or deleting something. Multi user access with real time changes while viewing is ideal for multi office/location use.
Mike from R W Collins
We researched several different platforms before choosing congistics. No one else we could find addresses the needs of heavy equipment and job scheduling as well as they do. The software is simple, adaptable and the support is great.
