(May 13, 2021 - Carrollton, TX) – As one of ten finalists in its award category, 4SIGHT™ Connect Digital Gate from 4SIGHT Logistics Solution has won Best IT Innovation, 2021 MHI Innovation Awards. MHI made the announcement during a keynote session at this year’s ProMatDX.
Warehouse and distribution center (DC) dock operations typically face several activity management challenges every day. These can include drivers arriving early, late, or without an appointment, docks becoming backed up as a result of poor scheduling, and even a lack of or breakdowns in direct driver communication. 4SIGHT™ Connect Digital Gate solves these issues by vastly improving driver scheduling and communications for warehouse and DC dock operations of any size and scope.
“Being awarded Best IT Innovation based on an evaluation by eight independent judges in our industry really underscores our belief in 4SIGHT Connect Digital Gate as the ideal gate access solution,” said John Carroll, Vice President, Sales and Marketing for 4SIGHT Logistics Solution. “Proactively scheduling docks for loading/unloading, monitoring drivers’ check-in/check-out status, capturing metrics on how long drivers spend at facilities, ensuring real-time carrier notifications as well as providing reports and documentation needed to refute any detention charges are just of few of 4SIGHT Connect Digital Gate’s many innovative capabilities.”
Via 4SIGHT Connect Digital Gate’s software, facilities can also provide self check-in/check-out for drivers with/without an appointment; view an interactive dashboard across all departments to track performance (today, last week, and last month); manage arrived shipments with/without an appointment; view shipment status (scheduled, arrived, turned away, departed, and deleted); view arrived alert status (early, on time, or late); as well as receive alerts and notifications and view performance KPI’s.
“In addition, 4SIGHT Connect Hub includes Mobile Xpress features allowing drivers to pre-check into facilities expeditiously, added Carroll. “This no-touch access process for drivers — especially helpful during times of elevated employee health safety concerns — also allows drivers to self check-in/check-out via their smart phone or other mobile device from the comfort and safety of their truck.”
Using 4SIGHT Connect Digital Gate’s Driver Control software, facilities can easily manage check-in/check-out (both scheduled/nonscheduled shipments) in either English or Spanish, gather driver information for on-site communication, manage driver interaction with facilities via intercom, route drivers to the dock or other designated location, and facilitate gate access.
