4SIGHT Connect – Digital Gate – OLD PAGE, DO NOT USE
Shipment Scheduling and Gate Management Software
Keep Deliveries On Time and Organized Inside and Outside the Warehouse
Ask operations managers where the biggest hurdles lie at their facilities and they will most likely say – where do I start? Fortunately, 4SIGHT Connect Digital Gate has a solution for every touchpoint – even before a driver pulls up to the gate.
Schedule Shipments and Make Quick Decisions
Using Digital Gate’s scheduling feature, you control your dock availability, giving you more time to move personnel to the right place at the right time.
Easily send your carriers a scheduling email with desired delivery time and appointment information.
Driver arrives without an appointment? No problem. Quickly check dock availability and manually assign an open position directly from the Digital Gate dashboard and communicate the assignment to the driver in real-time.
Instantly Know When a Driver Has Arrived
With Digital Gate, managing arrivals and departures is simplified. Drivers arrive at the receiving area or designated check-in place where the Driver Control tablet is prominently displayed. Once the required information is entered on the tablet, your back office receives an alert that the driver has checked in. Digital Gate then routes a driver to a dock location by sending instructions via text message.
If a driver arrives without an appointment, Digital Gate provides an option to instantly assign a dock or turn him/her away until a dock position becomes readily available.
No Touch Access Check-In for Increased Health Protocols
For facilities who have opted for or have required mandates to limit person-to-person contact as much as possible, Digital Gate can enable a No Touch Access feature that virtually eliminates contact between drivers and facility personnel. This promotes a safer and more adaptable environment.
Enabling the No Touch Access option allows drivers to Pre Check-In without leaving their vehicle via the Mobile Xpress feature on the 4SIGHT Connect Hub mobile app.* When a No-Touch Access enabled vehicle enters the pre-determined radius (set by facility), the driver taps Check-In on the app, which then alerts the back office immediately. From there, Digital Gate sends text instructions detailing where/how to proceed.
*Facility policies may still require in-person hand-off of BOL or other physical documents.
