Adding & Managing Locations

Fast-Weigh Web Portal


Fast-Weigh has a 3-tier operating location structure:  Regions, Locations, and Yards. This allows flexibility for companies of all sizes to manage their production. You may have as many or as few of each structure as you need to properly reflect your company‚Äôs needs.





Adding and Managing Locations

  • Navigate to Resources > Locations.
  • Regions: This is the highest level of organization.
    • Generally, these are related to a primary or branch office.
    • Highlighting a Region will show any active Locations in this table.
  • Locations: These are your quarry or pit locations operating within a given region.
    • Locations are tied to ticketing devices, so you will need to set up one for each device. Please email us at support@tacinsight.com or call 865-219-2980 during business hours to purchase any additional licenses. 
    • Highlighting a Location will show any active Yards in this table.
  • Yards: These could be your various quarries or pits within a Location.
    • You can create one or many Yards to organize your materials, but keep in mind each Yard will require product pricing to be setup.
