Add/Edit Load Tickets

 

The Add/Edit Load Tickets Screen is the heart of LoadCalc Professional! and most of a user's work will be done here. This is where the action is as they say, since the whole point of LoadCalc Professional! is the automatic summation of the load tickets entered into the system. With just eight fields of data entered for each ticket, you can keep track of all products delivered by which haulers to which mills by which loggers cutting from which tracts.

 

And as you work, you can see sub-totals updated constantly right on the screen. Even better, you can select exactly how you want the sub-totals displayed and then change the method of calculation any time you want. Pop-up lists make it even easier to work, reducing your keystrokes to a minimum. Load Tickets are entered by date, and a pop-up calendar assists you in selecting exactly which date you want to enter. Load Tickets can be edited at any time and all totals will be updated to reflect the changes you make. Best of all, everything is real-time. Enter a ticket on this screen and you can immediately print a report that includes the new data.

Tract List

 

The Tract List screen gives the user access to all of the information related to the individual tracts that will be logged. As you can see below, there is a wealth of details right at your fingertips including contact name, multiple telephone numbers, contact email address, location information, critical contract dates, comments and more. At any time, you can print a list of tracts, view all load tickets entered for a specific tract. And, if you have CruiseCalc IV for Windows installed on your computer, you can import any tally sheet you've created in CruiseCalc into LoadCalc Professional! as a new tract.

Tract Production Results

 

The Tract Production Results screen gives you up to the minute results of the logging operation on any specific tract. You can estimate the tonnage that will be logged for each species of timber found on the property and check the tract-to-date deliveries of species as load tickets are entered into the system.

Tract Production Settlement Rates

 

The Tract Production Settlement Rates screen allows you to determine exactly how much you will pay each individual logger, hauler and land owner for each species delivered to different mills. The system will automatically create the records in this screen as you enter load tickets, and will prompt you to enter the rates anytime a new Settlement Rate record is created. Anytime you run a Settlement Worksheet, the first thing the program will do is verify that a valid rate has been entered for each of the combinations that will appear on the report and give you a chance to update the rates for any errors it finds before the worksheet is printed. Because the number of combinations can be large, handy filtering tools are provide so you can zero in on just the rates you are looking for.

Edit Tract Settlement Rates

 

Whenever you enter a load ticket that has a unique combination of Logger Id, Hauler Id, Mill Id, and Product Id, LoadCalc Professional! automatically creates a Settlement Rate record where you can store the both the rates you will receive for each load as well as the rates you will pay for each load delivered. As you can see from the screenshot below, this screen is color coded according to income (green) and expenses (red). At the bottom, the calculated Ticket Profit is shown as green if each load will be profitable and red if the load will be a loss. Making sure that the Ticket Profit is always colored green will help minimize negative cash flows.

Query Load Tickets

 

The Query Load Tickets screen allows you to access Load Tickets you have entered into the system in a way never before available within LoadCalc. You set the filters, click 'Run Query' and the results are displayed in a grid for you to view, sort and print any way you want. You can even edit Load Tickets directly from the Query Load Tickets screen and when you save your work all changes will be reflected throughout LoadCalc Professional! While LoadCalc comes with lots of built-in reports that can be sorted and filtered to produce hundreds of different reports, the Query Load Tickets screen makes finding and reporting Load Tickets a snap!

Settlement Worksheets

 

Settlement Worksheets are how you determine what you should pay loggers, haulers or land owners based upon the loads delivered to mills. LoadCalc Professional! allows you to set rates for Loggers, Haulers, and Land Owners based upon the unique combinations of Load Tickets that are entered into the system. The unique combinations are based upon Tract Id, Mill Id, Logger Id, Hauler Id, and Product Id. Each time you enter a unique ticket in the Load Tickets screen, the system prompts you enter rates if necessary. You can edit the rates you pay at any time on the Tract Settlement Rates screen. 

 

Select the Settlement Worksheets and choose which type of Worksheet you want to print, filter the report as you would like and the program does the rest. LoadCalc Professional! will automatically prompt you if there are tickets selected that have zero rates to give you an opportunity to edit these rates, or you can proceed to print.  Control your costs by specifying exactly how much you want to pay for specific delivery runs and LoadCalc will help you make sure you only pay want you need to and never more!
