DOTSlip

DOT E-Ticketing is a digital ticket service that provides the Department of Transportation officials with a paperless option for reviewing material weight slips. Using DOT E-Ticketing, resident engineers and inspectors can subscribe to a live feed of weight slips on their phones as the loads are ticketed at the scale. These tickets can be cataloged and viewed on the phone or the web at their convenience.

JOBSlip

https://www.haulhub.com/jobslip/
JOBslip is the industry-standard app for sharing critical construction materials data between project stakeholders. As materials leave the scale, ticket data is immediately available within the JOBslip app. With JOBslip, you can:

• Digitally sign and verify delivery.
• Enter your signature once during set up, and all your tickets will be eSigned and timestamped when you verify delivery in the app.
