Introducing the levridge scale for ag retailers

Levridge Scale

Our team continues the exciting mission of building software for agricultural businesses. Throughout the year our ISV company, Levridge, will be rolling out several modules containing functionality built on top of Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations. We’re giving you a preview of what you can expect to see in these ag-related modules. In this post, I highlight some of the functionality contained in Levridge Scale.

What does Levridge Scale do?

When a grower hauls a load to the elevator the scale system measures a variety of data such as:

  • Type of commodity
  • Gross weight of the product
  • Tare weight
  • Unit weight per bushel
  • Discounts
  • Test weight
  • Moisture
  • Foreign material
  • Shrink calculation
  • Etc.

The purpose of Levridge Scale is to receive all the data measured at the scales at ag retailer locations and incorporate it into a scale ticket which can be printed out and given to the grower, while also bringing the scale ticket into the Dynamics 365 ERP system. Within the accounting technology solution, the contents of the scale ticket can be accounted for and posted against contracts the grower has with the ag retailer. Levridge Scale supports inbound and outbound, transfer and agronomy tickets.

Where is the scale system located?

Probe shacks are often in remote locations so the application reading the data from the scale and putting it into a scale ticket is built to run with or without an internet connection. Once an internet connection is available the data is synchronized with Dynamics 365 solutions. The setup data used by the probe shack is maintained within Dynamics 365. Commodities, sites, contracts, delivery sheets, commodity grade and quality factors, dispositions, discount schedules, and pits are created and maintained within Dynamics 365 and pushed down to the probe shacks so they can be consumed quickly and easily in the scale ticketing process.
