Mettler Toledo has expanded its DataBridge line of software for vehicle scales with the new DataBridge MS. DataBridge MS is highly configurable, with optional modules designed to provide maximum flexibility in a ready-to-deploy system, the company explained.
DataBridge MS controls multiple vehicle scales, with support for multi-directional weighing, traffic controls, status alerts and unattended scales. Definable user roles, custom transaction criteria, and add-on modules allow the program to grow and adapt as organizational needs expand and change.
Regular updates and training resources are included.
“One of the main benefits of DataBridge software is that it is extremely easy to use,” said Santosh Nachu, DataBridge product manager. “We created a clean, highly graphical interface that is designed to be intuitive—from the scale operator accessing customer records, to the operations manager who needs to analyze quarterly business performance. We realize that powerful features only add value if the customer can easily use them.”
In developing the product, the company explored how weight transaction data is used throughout an entire organization. Scale operators, operations managers, finance controllers, IT departments and company executives can all benefit, Mettler Toledo said.
“These systems aren't isolated within an organization,” said Nachu. “We approached the product from the viewpoints of users throughout an organization. Sharing real-time data within a business is critical to boosting productivity and maximizing profitability.”
