Enhancements

  • Report Generation – Optimized the time it takes for the report to open using the Fixed reports under the Report Section. We have also sped up many of the existing reports.
  • Service Screen – Redesigned the service to give better awareness at a glance. We’ve color-coded the status, Green is good, Red is bad. We’ve also added the ability to know which load each mixer is currently mixing.
  • Library Reports – We have expanded the number of available reports. You’ll find the new reports under the Reports>Library Reports.
  • Improved Communication – Optimized the method of communication between the Desktop and Mixer. We’ve also added the ability to speed up the communication speed if mixing equipment has a Mobile Demand or Touch2 tablet.
  • Improved Automated Task Handling - We’ve improved the functionality of the task handler to retry failed tasks at the start of each day. If it fails for consecutive days, then it will auto-disable it.
  • Reconciliation of On-Hand Quantity – We’ve improved the ability for a user to physically calculate the on-hand inventory level of feed. This will update the current on-hand inventory level.
  • Improved Inventory Management – We made several performance and functionality improvements. We've also simplified workflow that will help speed up data entry which will increase accuracy.
  • Layout Lock – Now layouts are locked. Now simply click the “Customize Layouts” to adjust.
  • Updated Logo and Graphics – We have updated the logos to reflect our new Brand.
