In April 2008, Grace Construction Products and RS Solutions entered into an agreement, where Grace became the exclusive sales and marketing agent for the Ready Slump system to ready-mix concrete producers worldwide.
As of March 1, 2009, the Ready Slump System is being sold under the brand name Verifi, which covers the current system and all future innovation products added to the portfolio.
Verifi is a patented process control system for ready mixed concrete that enables the production of concrete with reduced variability, while enhancing operational productivity. It measures and controls slump of the concrete from the time a truck is loaded until the concrete is discharged. It also records drum revolutions and all water additions and changes in slump over the complete mix, delivery and discharge cycle. Verifi has data transmission capability that allows the concrete producer to utilize the recorded data for better batching, effective management of drivers and trucks, and more consistent product truck to truck.
One of the newest enhancements already available to customers is the system integration with batch systems. Data can now be combined with batch records and in-transit data provided conveys feedback on concrete loads throughout the delivery cycle, allowing for an improved batching accuracy, higher product quality and reduced operating costs.
