Your operations are lean and efficient but you're always striving for improvement. This is where the BISON VGM App delivers!
The BISON VGM App keeps information flowing, improves efficiency and keeps you in control of critical container information.
"We're able to use the App to send the VGM Certificate to the Port. From there we can send it to ourselves, or even to the customer. The other thing that makes the BISON weighing system so great for our site is the records we keep from weighing each container can be used to resolve any potential customer disputes with regards to the weight of what we're sending them."

The scales have a tilt sensor integrated into them which is used to check that they are vertical. The weighing accuracy is compromised if the load cell is not vertical. The ANGLE warning message flashes if the scale is tilted more than 3 degrees off the vertical axis. Check that the scale is vertical and that container is on level ground. Contact BISON for further advice if the problem persists.
