“Payload Scanner Speaks Volumes” by Industrial Weigh & Measure

“Payload Scanner Speaks Volumes” is a story from Industrial Weigh & Measure and was written by Dave M Mathieu. To see the original story, see page 8 at the May/June 2015 issue of the publication.

If you had a construction company that needed millions of yards of material for a project, what would be your biggest concern, besides a dependable source? If it’s to make sure you get what you paid for, then you would have the same concern as this Louisiana construction company.Walz Scale

So it wasn’t surprising that they invited Walz Scale of Peoria, Illinois to demonstrate its new load scanner to verify if indeed every loaded truck entering their site delivered the right volume of material. But what was surprising is what they uncovered within minutes of using the scanner.

A Revealing Demonstration

This large construction project required, over the course of the job, 8-million cubic yards of lime stabilized soil. Like many civil construction jobs, the material quantity is based on truck capacity. Since they know the capacity of each truck, they simply count a load as it enters the work site. But how accurate can that be?

Load Scan DemoAt $25 per cubic yard, management was looking for a way to track and manage the material coming on site. Since they needed a number of monitoring stations, truck scales were out of the question due to their initial costs, space requirements, variations in weight due to changing material density and traffic slow downs at the weighing sites. When they heard that Walz Scale was working on new technology that could verify actual material loads, reduce existing labor through unmanned stations, and optimize vehicle throughput, needless to say they were very interested.

“When we demonstrated this technology to them we found almost immediately that they were overpaying on average two cubic yards per vehicle,” said Matt Walz, vice president of Walz Scale. “We also discovered that the vehicles had carry-back issues, so they were actually paying for the same material multiple times.”

As a result of this demonstration, the company ordered six Walz Load Scanners on mobile trailers. Three of the scanners are located at the entrances of the construction site, and are used to verify incoming material deliveries. The other three scanners are used to monitor and automatically adjust for carry-back in the empty trucks leaving the site.All six scanners inter-communicate via the Payload Pro web-based cloud site.

“The empty scan is important because it allows them to generate a volume tare,” said Matt. “With this information, they tare out the carry-back, so they aren’t counting it anymore.”

Unmanned System

All of the trucks hauling material for this project are equipped with active RFID tags. As the truck enters the entrance lane the RFID automatically initiates the scanner, and a traffic light communicates with the driver as he enters. The scanner head is mounted on a tall pole above the vehicle, and as the truck moves below the scan head at speeds under 5-mph the laser scanner measures the load’s 3D profile. With this advanced technology, the company is able to have an unmanned scanning system.

Unmanned Load Scanner System

The system is capable of measuring to an accuracy of plus or minus one tenth of a cubic yard in perfect conditions. However, in more extreme environments such as at this construction site, it averages plus or minus three-tenths of a cubic yard.

Cloud-Based Data Management

Load Scanner OperationThe scanner system uses the Walz Payload Pro operating software, which incorporates patent-pending algorithms to interpret the data returned from the scanner to determine the actual amount of material within the truck bed. Then system is tied into the web-based cloud site for real-time data synchronization of load volume and graphical imagery. The job site’s management personnel monitor the scanners’ data at the central office, and if required, they can print, text or e-mail load tickets to each driver and/or supervisor. When needed, they can also monitor what is going on in real time from remote locations using the Internet connection from virtually any device.

There are a variety of reports available to this construction company through Payload Pro Cloud. The reports available include truck production, truck cycle times, stockpile and inventory, production and material, plus other report options as needed.

By taking advantage of this new technology from Walz Scale, this construction company is poised to save over $10,000,000 over the course of the project. Needless to say, this speaks volumes for this new volumetric load scanner technology.

How It All Started

Walz Scale had a coalmining customer that was using their scales but also wanted to know the volume of the load to determine real time material densities. Being a company that was known for helping its customers with measurement problems, Matt debated whether or not this was an area Walz Scale should enter. After considerable research, he found that there were a lot of industries that deal primarily in volume.

“You’d be surprised how many industries are concerned with volume and not weight,” said Matt. “When you look at such industries as mining, aggregate/rock, mulch, bio-mass, bio-fuel, agriculture, and construction, they’re in that world of volume.

Load Scanner Complete Unit

 

“Because the material in these industries fluctuate so much with moisture content, a fair way to do business is by volume,” Matt continues. “When you purchase aggregate after it rains, you’re paying for a lot of water. So this technology has potential to change how the aggregate industry operates. Also it is beneficial to the construction industry in determining how much material is moved from point A to point B. It’s not how many tons did I move, but how many cubic yards I moved.”

Those operating in this world of volume realize it is very unregulated. Matt believes this technology can actually help regulate it more. Since most producers don’t want to take advantage of the customer, they are embracing this technology because it helps them not to give product away while being fair to their customers. It’s a trustworthy tool for them since it makes doing business more transparent.

Developing New Technology

While everyone likes to read and hear about new and emerging technologies, most companies in today’s resource-strapped economy don’t have time and/or money required to really pursue innovative technologies for themselves. But Matt, his engineers and his father, Tom Walz, president of the company, did an up-front analysis and the decision was to make a commitment of time and money to create this new technology for measuring volume. But it was not an easy decision for them to step into another world of measurement. After all, the weighing business is the taproot of this third-generation family business.

Once the decision was made to pursue the creation of this new product, Matt and his team spent the next three years in intensive design and testing of a new payload scanner that would change the way in measuring volume of mass material loads.

Enter Walz Load Scanner

The scanner is available in both stationary and mobile models. The stationary unit is easy to install in minimal time. The mobile unit is a simple, compact unit mounted on a trailer that can be moved from site to site by a small vehicle. Both units are weather resistant and include internal heaters for operation in cold temperatures.

The laser scan head is able to scan loads with vehicles in motion to provide fast throughput without sacrificing accuracy. This allows the scanner to be unmanned as well as monitored from remote locations, which is easily done with its cloud based operating system. The Official Load Scanner System

The Payload Pro software provides provisions for interpreting data from the scanner and is easily expandable as future needs arise. The operating platform is able to provide many different types of reports including truck production, truck cycle times, stockpile and inventory, and individual material. It also provides hourly, shift, daily, monthly, quarterly and yearly production reports. The software is Cloud-based so users don’t have to purchase sophisticated computers to operate the system.

It’s a plug-and-play design that works on any type of computer, tablet or cell phone with Internet connection capability.

The opinion has often been expressed that no product has ever been introduced that was ahead of its time-advances are made upon demand. Today, you’ll get no argument from Matt on this point. It’s because Walz Scale works to create solutions to the unique challenges and opportunities faced by each of its customers that the Walz Load Scanner is a reality.

Matt made the point that their load scanner won’t replace scales by any means, but for specific industry applications it is a perfect solution, or another tool to add to existing truck and axle scales to capture material densities and load position analysis.

5 Plastic Surgeon SEO Tips for Local Practices

For plastic surgeons with local websites, gaining and maintaining a prominent online presence is one of the keys to ensuring a steady flow of clients. However, as some of you may have already known, getting relevant traffic and increasing sales via online websites is, to say the least, a daunting task. Many surgeons embarking on SEO are left with the feeling that they are missing out on a very important principle for gaining traffic.

plastic surgeon seo tips

Here’s the deal: there’s no one-size-fits-all solution to boost your business using online resources. There are, however, some practical surgeon SEO techniques you can use to improve your search engine rankings and increase your conversion rates:

1. Conduct a Citation Audit (Name, Address, Phone Number)

First and foremost, you need to conduct a citation audit. A citation is a reference or mention of your business’ name, address, and phone (NAP) anywhere on the web. Citation consistency is seen as the third most important ranking factor in the 2014 Local Search Ranking Factors outlined by Moz.com. You need to make sure that your company details published on various websites are accurate as wrong phone number, address, or name may lose you traffic and customers.

2. Get Listed on Local Directories

Online directories are the equivalent of Yellow Pages of the years gone by. In this age, potential patients most of the time turn to online directories to search for the nearest or most reliable surgeon in town. Don’t miss this chance. Search for the most relevant local directories and get yourself cited there.

When people see your name in respected online directories, they get the impression that you’re respectable and trustworthy as well. Good resources for getting listed on local directories (particularly those that can empower your surgeon SEO strategy) include Yext and Whitespark, to name just a couple.

3. Get Listed on Medical-Specific Directories

Let’s not forget about medical-specific directories. These can be a powerful tool if you use it right. Search for directories that list medical practitioners whether by field, area, or membership to associations or organizations. There are also field-specific directories such as Lasik Surgeon Directory which lists eye surgeons, Spine-Health Directory, Orthopaedic Surgeon Directory, among others. Getting listed in such sites will increase your exposure and enhance your credibility.

4. Ensure Your Surgeon Website is SEO-friendly

This is perhaps one of the best things you can do to improve your surgeon SEO strategy. Website’s SEO-friendliness does not just rely on stuffing pages with keywords (as this can just get you penalized), but rather sound SEO for surgeons encompasses many elements, such as link structure, content, URLs, filenames, and images. In other words, everything in your website should be purposively tailored to increase SEO performance, all while crafting your local brand as surgeon. One great resource is the services and solutions for SEO at Optimized Surgeons.

5. Regularly Publish Industry-Relevant, Evergreen Content (On-site & Off-site)

We mentioned a while ago that SEO for surgeons involves content creation. In fact, producing relevant content that will add value to your readers is indispensable if you want to hit it off with Google. First, keep your content relevant to your readers. You’ll also find it valuable to your plastic surgeon SEO program to ensure all content is media rich and long-form.

Write what they want or need to know, not simply what you want to let them know. Think how they think; what are their questions, assumptions, information needs? Second, keep it evergreen – meaning write contents that will stay relevant even years from now. For example, if you’re an eye surgeon, you may write about Factors to Consider Before Undergoing an Eye Surgery. It’s both relevant and evergreen. One last note: it’s important to regularly publish such contents, either on your website or not, as it shows that you’re actively engaged with your audience and that you’re an expert in your field.

5 Tips to Improve Health Center Billing Practices

Keeping on top of your health center’s medical billing procedures is essential for maintaining and growing its revenue stream. Today, integrating technology is key to revamping the medical billing of any health care practice, along with making patient communication as clear and concise as possible.health center

In addition to improving efficiency and the work environment in general, employing techniques to improve your health center billing processes can equal a significant increase in revenue. Here are five ways to improve your health center billing practices.

1. Electronically organize patient health records

It’s true that keeping hard copies of medical records is a good practice, and even a legal requirement in many cases, but this method of organization should primarily be used for storage. For the day-to-day use of patient records, electronic organization is not only more efficient, it is the best way to keep patient health records secure.

Rather than sending files from practitioner to practitioner, or moving this information around internally for review when processing claims, having patient information available at the click of a button will lighten your health center billing work load. Electronic organization also allows for patient records to be updated almost instantly, which helps make billing and patient care more efficient. When investing in health center billing services, these solutions are typically a part of the program.

2. Use high quality medical billing software17 OTIxMDYxMzM3OC5qcGc=

Note that the suggestion isn’t to simply use medical billing software, but to make sure that it is of high quality. With all of the ever-changing billing codes for various insurance plans, Medicaid, and Medicare, choosing billing software that includes frequent automatic updates can be a great convenience. The more up to date your software is with the latest medical billing rules, the less likely it is that your health center’s claims will be denied.

3. Clearly communicate with patients

When patients know what is expected of them in terms of payment, as well as what billing options your health center offers, they will be more apt to not only take care of their medical bills, but to do so promptly. It’s best to not only provide billing and payment information in patient contracts and paper handouts, but to also post it in patient waiting and check-in areas, your reception desk, and you can even post this information inside exam rooms. Use layman’s terms, avoid technical jargon, and aim to make your health center’s billing and payment terms as visible and understandable as possible.

4. Make use of data mining

Pulling accurate reports improves the level of service that your health center provides, and it can also be invaluable when it comes to decision making. If you choose good medical billing software program, it will likely come with the ability to create custom reports manually or automatically. These reports can then be analyzed to check for payment and billing errors — reducing billing errors is an important part of increasing your health center’s revenue and percentage of approved claims.

5. Aim to get billing right the first time

Each error or piece of missed information makes it more likely that claims will be denied, which is a sure way to see your health center’s profits and efficacy tumble. Careful attention to detail on the part of staff is one part of the equation, but an efficient electronic patient records system and high quality billing software can help ensure that manual and technical errors don’t go unnoticed before a claim is initially submitted.
