July 2019 Web Portal Update

This evening, we'll release our July software update for the Fast-Weigh 10 web portal. You don't have to do anything to trigger the update - your portal will update itself automatically. Keep scrolling for details.

Coming Soon - Update for the Fast-Weigh 10 Desktop Ticketing App
In our upcoming scale app update, we'll be adding a number of new features including new functionality to accommodate truck and hauler insurance expiration, aesthetic changes to the user interface, and more!  Stay tuned.

Here's what's new:

Fast-Weigh Web Portal

  • NEW - Proposed Pricing
    • With our new Proposed Pricing feature, you can easily prepare an updated price list for one or more Products without applying the changes to your current pricing. Then, once proposed pricing has been approved by your organization, you may apply the changes to just one product, or to all products at once.

      Here's a step by step guide to using the Proposed Pricing feature:

 

  • ORDERS
    • NEW - 'Review Required' Checkbox
      We've added a Review Required parameter to the order setup screen. If this checkbox is checked, any tickets made for that order cannot be billed or added to a hauler pay statement until the order is reviewed and the Review Required box is unchecked.
      order setup

      NOTE: We have also added a new Order Review Required report under Reports >> Orders >> Order Review Required.


      report


    • NEW - Order Notes & Documents
      Clicking the new Notes & Documents tab will allow you to add any internal notes or upload files to use for reference. Attached files are viewable from the Order Setup screen only, but your Notes field can be mapped to a custom report if required.

      notes and docs

  • QUOTES
    • NEW - Quote Notes & Documents
      Clicking the Note & Documents tab will allow you to add any internal notes or upload files to use for reference. Attached files are viewable from the Quote Setup screen only, but your Notes field can be mapped to a custom report if required.
      Note: Documents cannot be attached to a Quote once it has been Awarded.

  • TRUCKS & HAULERS
    • NEW - Hauler Insurance Expiration
      Filling in the Insurance Expiration field at the Hauler level will extend down to any trucks under that hauler. If insurance has expired for a truck OR the hauler associated with that truck, the desktop ticketing application will notify the operator during ticketing.

      insurance

    • NEW - Default Capacities for Truck Types
      Truck Types are useful categories you can assign individual trucks to. Create truck types by going to Resources >> Truck Types. Now, you can establish a Default Weight Capacity and/or Default Volume Capacity for a particular truck type, and these fields will automatically apply to any trucks associated with the given type. (Note: defaults currently only apply when a truck is created from the web portal. Desktop scale ticketing app support will be added soon.)
