Know Tech Tally Ho! Weighmeister

What is it?

A software based method of efficiently recording the weighing of boxes making up an order of lobsters and producing a printed shipping manifest for the order.

Why use it?

When packing 30 lb boxes of lobsters for air shipment, it is almost impossible to pack the exact amount. Packers try to balance the amounts over and under so that on average the 30 lb target is met.

Unless the actual average is calculated it is impossible to avoid the losses caused by this estimation process. With lobsters selling for $5 - $10 per lb, the potential loss exceeds the cost of losses from any other sources.

What else?

Providing a printed shipping manifest appears much more professional than just an invoice.
