Today, as we honor the victims and heroes of 9/11, we reflect on our own small contribution to recovery efforts and the beginnings of our company’s story. Following the tragedy on September 11, 2001, the founding members of the TAC Insight team worked on the Forensic Recovery Mission at the Staten Island Landfill, processing massive volumes of debris in an effort to recover items of forensic significance.
The aggregate, mining, and construction industries have often lagged behind when it comes to adopting modern business technologies. Far too many scale houses still employ archaic IT systems that are slowing down production and costing them money. Here are 7 simple solutions to the most common mistakes being made by today's bulk material producers.
Windows 10 has been available since 2015, yet your scale houses are still running some antique ticketing software on Windows 7 machines (or worse, Windows Vista). Why?
We are excited to announce the release of our Fast-Weigh 10 Dispatching platform. The dispatching suite integrates fully with your ticketing and hauling data so you can ticket, dispatch, and track trucks, all on a single platform. Keep truckers accountable with live GPS mapping, alert drivers with SMS text notifications, and manage your hauling operations with a modern web interface you can access from anywhere.
1. Quarries and scale houses are, well, ...filthy.
Excavating and transporting raw materials is a dirty, dirty job. With the grimy conditions, remote locations, and spotty internet, we all know that pits and quarries are not the best places to keep your company's critical data. Despite the fact that power outages, PC crashes, and other catastrophic data failures are common in the industry, a shocking number of businesses still rely on archaic local databases to store their financial transactions.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve asked a new prospect to estimate their annual or daily material ticket volume and they can’t readily provide this information. These questions should be easy for companies to answer, whether you're at the office, at home, or even traveling with a mobile device.
