Avery Weigh-Tronix is launching a new software package for waste management that it claims is the simplest to install, use, maintain and upgrade for the management of weight derived data.
Called MI PAYLOAD, it is a comprehensive set of software applications for distribution, transportation and supply chain management processes.
Able to link to both new and existing weighbridge installations, it enables customers to identify and weigh vehicles and trailers, manage customer and supplier contracts, and invoice and receive payments.
The software is easily configured to simplify user input for each stage of the process; yet it also supports extensive preference options so that businesses can set precise parameters for more complex operations. It caters for gatehouse in/out, waste and recycling sites and sales.
Says Simon Hallam, global software solutions director at Avery-Weigh-Tronix: “Our Measurement Intelligence software focuses on ease of use. It has a friendly and attractive interface; familiar and logical screen layouts; and predictable function keys that are easy to use for both basic and advanced use. New modules will be released on an ongoing basis that will further increase its application and depth of function.”
MI PAYLOAD uses Microsoft's SQL 2005 database, networking and programming tools and is compatible with both Microsoft Windows XP and Vista operating systems. It is also scalable so that it can be installed on a single PC linked to one weighbridge or interfaced with multiple scales and integrated within complex IT network systems.
Says Hallam: “MI PAYLOAD has been designed to help our customers reduce their costs, improve their processes and increase their profits. It uses today's leading technology as part of an ISO-certified development environment to provide solutions that are simple to install and use. Couple this with the strongest maintenance and service support in the industry and it will maximise your return on investment.”
