Included in Standard License

Pit Monitor

Transmit load information from scale house to receiving pit, eliminating 2-way radio communication.

Customize load information that is valuable to your team. In addition, display only what they need to see. Such as vehicle ID, commodity description, pit number, grade information, comments and operational information.

Load information conveys a clear and concise message in digital grid format. Therefore, for your team can easily view it anywhere within the facility, not just at the receiving pit.

Data Replication Service

Automate the sync of your data from AGRIS to remote oneWeigh workstations, without interrupting your user. As a result, the constant flow of updates ensures reliable data flowing between AGRIS and oneWeigh. The updates include name, address, contract balances, Farm & Fields, prices, discount tables, and more.

Signature Pad

Enhance your customer experience when capturing a digital signature is mandatory.

The placement of signature pads can be inside you scale house at the counter and/or at the kiosk adjacent to the scale. Thus, allowing the driver to sign from the comfort of their cab. Then your team applies the driver’s electronic signature to the scale ticket or document.

Certified weighmasters and inspectors use the signature pad inside the scale house to sign off on load transactions.

Inventory Interface

Electronically create delivery tickets and process sales orders for bulk product, to expedite invoicing, improve inventory management and increase billing integrity.

Eliminate manual inventory processes such as stamping, hand filing and recording paper tickets. Furthermore, this will reduce the chance of costly lost loads and exposure to shrinkage from lost paper scale tickets.

This interface also provides a weigh program for anhydrous tanks. Your team can weigh tanks out and back in, knowing precisely what quantity to bill or credit to give to the customer. In addition to this, it keeps record of each anhydrous tank, so you know where each tank is at all times. For example, if a specific customer picks up a tank from one location and returns it to another location – your records will capture and track it.

Extended Options

Grading Interface

Automatically applies analytical grading equipment results to the scale ticket and load documentation. In addition, there’s an ability to disable manual changes after data is received from the meter without manager authorization. Because of this, it ensures all testing requirements are met.

This interface also allows manual overrides. And the audit log captures and tracks the overrides.

Reduce manual entry mistakes and errors from operators keying in the incorrect values. As a result, if your facility eliminates these manual processes, it will help prevent shrink, discount penalties, and added costs for incorrect bin assignments.

Driver’s License Scanner

Quickly and easily capture a valid driver name and record directly to the scale ticket. Clearly, this eliminates hard-to-read handwritten documentation.

Above all, this enables your facility to enforce business and safety rules with correct identification, spelling and clear identification of the driver.

PLC Interface

Provides the ability to share data – including commodity, weight, and grades from a ticket in process with other plant systems, such as a PLC or scale indicator.

Parameters can be set up to determine what information to send and at what time. In addition, the oneWeigh system can also be set to receive data from a PLC (e.g., “ok to weigh” or “ok to print”).

Biometric Security

Biometric Security Scanner interface expedites sign-on processes for authorized personnel with finger-print verification.

With the touch of a finger, secure access grants permission to a person within your system. Therefore, this reduces the risk of forgetting or sharing passwords. Assign specific users certain permissions to perform critical functions, overrides, and voids, reducing the need to review daily audits.

The audit log records all actions that your facility requires a finger-print verification. In addition, a summary report establishes clear accountability on who gave authorization to what actions.

Pit Commander

Extend Pit Monitor by incorporating Pit Commander.

Pit Commander transmits load information to any monitor or tablet from the scale house to receiving pit or where the load information should transmit to.

Managers and operators can make real-time modifications to the previously assigned pit, bin destination, remarks, and include any updates to an existing ticket within Pit Monitor.

Pit Commander improves insights for Operational and Merchandising Managers by providing a dashboard of daily traffic, grain quality, and summary of daily receipts.

Message Board Interface & App

Visually provide clear communication to the driver/customer while at your location, keeping scale traffic moving.

A message board conveys a driver’s next move and unloading instructions, eliminating miscommunication from intercoms and two-way radios.

Display customer info, grade, weight and other pertinent ticket information while the ticket is being processed. In this case, it reduces error by allowing in-the-moment corrections prior to the truck leaving the facility.

Message Board Interface displays information on outdoor message boards that are certified to work with oneWeigh.

Message Board App displays up to 6 lines of information (that is customized info of your choosing) onto a kiosk or monitor screen.

Driver Self Check-In

Program that captures information from the driver to the scale house. This process expedites check-in on the scale or prior to the truck arriving to the scale, starting a ticket in oneWeigh.

Customize which data points you want to gather from the driver for their direct input. For instance, you can capture the last product hauled, customer or account information, commodity, truck id, etc.

This application is available with or without full oneWeigh automation.

AttachOne

Digital document storage solution that attaches third-party documentation to a scale ticket. AttachOne aids in simplifying processes of finding and retaining internal or external documents to a ticket.

Attach a .pdf, .txt, .png, .jpg, .gif, or .bmp to any ticket and identify if all or any should print when the ticket prints. Examples of attachments include bill of lading, wash ticket, weight certificate, or any other pertinent documentation specific to your location.

When AttachOne integrates with AGRIS, the documents from the scale house transmit back to the main office and stay with the ticket.

Flow Meter

Flow Meter is a business management system for ethanol facilities. And are for unattended or attended loadout operations.

When a driver/loader arrives to location, the Flow Meter controller prompts the driver for information. Such as ID, load number or destination. Upon verification, the driver loads and receives a ticket when the transaction is complete.

The flow controller interface captures movement of temperature-adjusted gallons of biofuels or other liquids. Supporting single-arm or dual-arm controllers.

RFID Tag Reader

An RFID tag electronically scans, triggering multiple automation actions. As a result, it frees up resources and time from these automation processes. After an RFID scans, it automatically pulls up customer information in the system, records ID and applies weight information to the correct ticket.

Card readers throughout the facility help quickly identify loads. In addition, they ensure your team is working with the correct ticket at a certain time, verifying and initiating the next step. For this reason, card readers improve accuracy and help prevent mishaps such as selecting the wrong ticket for the outbound weigh.

RFID readers can be either short-range (credit card-style) or long-range with fixed tags in the truck or on the trailer.

Other ways to capture info is by using barcode readers and key pads, which are both options with this platform.
