Scalehouse Integration Program (SHIP)

Compass SHIP logo.

Our SHIP program has been in use for 30 years, but this newest incarnation was rewritten to take full advantage of the .NET interface, while retaining legacy features such as function keys for instant function access.

SHIP is a full service ticketing program built to simplify & streamline scale-house procedures. Integration to the main business office means important updates are immediately reflected, reports are instantly available, and the scale-house operator has detailed truck assignment & management capabilities.

All-in-one Integration.

As a module in the Compass software suite, the Scale-House Integration Program (SHIP) empowers the operator, providing a window into cash sale pricing, delivery job sites and addresses, customer account data, purchase orders and other important information maintained in Compass Invoicing.  Compass Invoicing will ensure that all scalehouses in your operation work with consistent account, product, and ‘cash sale’ material and delivery pricing information. SHIP is a comprehensive solution.

Delivery assignment.

Be proactive in managing your deliveries with the ‘delivery assignment’ function. Toggle instantly between this screen and ticket entry.  With an assignment set up ahead of time, you can generate a delivery ticket with only a truck number *, and a scale readout. Done.

( * And in keeping with how we do things, you can access the truck by truck number, driver name, trucking firm or plate number.  Supply any part of the identification and a list of matches will pop up, keylessly, for you to select.  Each key stroke we can eliminate saves time and helps to speed trucks through.)

The ‘delivery assignment’ function provides an overview of all trucks available in your fleet or made available by brokers.  You may enter multiple assignments, and then choose the appropriate one when truck is on the scale.  If the product number is not known, leave it out, and complete at weigh out time. 

The program also handles inbound check in, for dumping and landfill applications. 

Finally, the dispatcher assignment function is fully integrated to the Order Management and scheduling function, where used.
