Product Categories

Product categories are useful if your company has a large number of products that need to be organized by type. Categories can be used to separate reports to show broader sales comparisons.

Note: Product categories are not required to set up products.

Setting up New Product Categories

  • Navigate to Resources > Product Categories.
  • Click the [+New Product Category] button.
  • Create a short Code and Description to define the Category
  • Add a GL Sales Account, if your accounting system supports GL.

Adding and Managing Products

Adding New Products

Your Products will be what you are actually ticketing for. You can create an unlimited number of Products and assign them to your Locations, as needed.
NOTE: Products will not be available for ticketing until the product is set for each of your locations and the product has been added to a template.

  • Navigate to Resources > Products > Products & Pricing
  • Go to the Product Setup tab of the Product page.
  • Click the  [+New Product] button on the Product Listing table on the left.
    • Product ID: This should be a short-hand code no more than 15 characters in length
    • Product Description: The full product name
    • Unit: How your product is measured.
      • Aggregate materials measured in pounds at the scale will automatically be converted to tons on the Web Portal. Please choose tons for these.
    • Choose a Category, if you have Product Categories set up.
    • Assign a  DOT (Department of Transportation) name, if this applies.
    • Click Update when finished.

Assigning Products to Locations

Next, you will need to assign your Products to the Locations where you will be ticketing the Products under the  Product Locations table in the center.

  • Click the  [+Add Location] button.
  • Enter the Region, Location, and Yard you will be ticketing the product out of.
  • If you are using the Inventory Module, you can fill out these optional fields:
    • Check Track Inventory if you want to track this product
    • Add in the Cost Per Unit rate.
    • Add in the Royalty rate.
  • If the Unit of Measure for your product is set to anything other than "Tons," you can set a Tonnage Conversion Factor for the product.
    • Example: If you sell water by the gallon, 1 ton of water is 239.65 gallons. You would fill in 239.65 for tonnage conversion for the water product and it will convert the scale weight into the proper gallon amount for you.
  • Set a Default Tax Code for the product or set this to None for no default.
    • You can control the order in which Tax Codes default under the Portal Settings.
  • Click "Update" to save the Product Location.
  • Once the Product Location is set up, make sure to navigate to the Product Pricing tab to set up Default Pricing for the Product.

Creating Pricing Templates

Pricing Templates are what drive your default pricing when adding products to an Order. You can create as many of these as needed, and you can set a default template that will be the default used when setting up a Customer.
Note: If you had pricing set up prior to the Pricing Templates update, your Price Levels will automatically be transferred over to Templates.

  • To add in a new Template, click on the [+ Add Template] button.
    • This will add a new line to the Pricing Template table where you can enter in the Template Name.
    • Make sure to click the Check button to save the new Template.
  • To set your default Template, select the Template Name from the table (it will be highlighted in teal with white text) and click [✓ Set Default]
    • The Default Template will be highlighted in green.
