WeighStation

The WeighStation application is designed with two main things in mind. Ease of use and robust data entry capabilities. The single screen design allows for the user to process transactions from one screen. All of the information needed is at the touch of their fingers through hot keys and other keyboard driven menus. WeighStation allows for quick processing of scale transactions in order to keep the traffic flow at your facility moving both in and out of the facility.

From this single screen you can process any transaction coming into or going out of your facility. The system can handle numerous units of measure (tons, tonnes, pounds, kilograms, gallon, each, bag, drum, volume, cubic yard, etc.).

Special Fees

In addition to capturing the weight of the vehicle and charging a fee, the WeighStation application has the ability to add additional fees to the transaction by applying Special Fees. These Special Fees may be for additional steps for handling materials that an organization would charge an additional fee.

The Special Fee list is customized and populated by you along with the associated fee to charge for handling the material. Such materials may include tires, refrigerators, paint, etc.

Shift Totals

The Shift Totals window can be viewed by pressing the "F5" key on the keyboard. This is up to the minute information regarding the transactions that have occurred during the shift.

The available totals are Transactions, Payment, Vehicle, Origin, Material, Destination, three additional tables, Special Fees, Freight, Hour of Day, Totals by Bill Account and Destination by Truck.

Reporting

At the end of the business day, you have the ability to print standard reports to show specific information on what has transpired at the facility. These reports are provided as part of the application. These reports can be printed or saved as a PDF file (with appropriate third party software).

Some of these reports include, check register, transaction detail, material totals, manual mode transactions, reprinted tickets, transaction totals, payment totals, origin totals, material totals, destination totals and more.

Closeout

If you accept cash at your facility, we have included a Closeout feature that will assist your scale operators to reconcile their cash drawer. This Z-Out will allow the user to enter in the value of each monetary denomination and checks accepted on their shift.

The system will compare their entries to the computer totals and provide the user with a summary of their activity and cash drawer. This Z-Out can be printed and used as a deposit slip for the users end of day totals.

Hardware Integration

Paradigm Software has integrated numerous peripherals into our system. From cash drawers to RF Readers, if our system doesn't integrate with it we are eager to add it to the ever growing list of devices.

Some of these devices include, signature capture pads, credit card swipe readers, proximity card readers, video capture, and our unattended processing solution.

Our unattended processing solution is custom built for every customer. You let us know what you want to accomplish and we will help you build the solution that best suits your needs. These solutions can include touch screen computers and even accept credit cards for payments, right at the unattended station.

Optional Modules

The WeighStation application has additional modules available to assist in the expansion of your facility. These modules include but are not limited to MSMQ (near real time data transfer), Lights, Gates, Video, Credit Card, Signature Capture, Alerts, Rules and many more.

Depending on your business requirements we probably have the module necessary to assist you in operating your facility. If by chance we do not, we are open to adding that feature into our application.
