Touchscreen app eliminates the paper jam

United States: Recycling software specialist cieTrade Systems has introduced a mobile app, eDock, that could eliminate paper breakdown sheets and shipping logs from recycling plants.

The touchscreen app, which can be used directly from the loading dock or scale-enabled forklift, allows warehouse personnel to process and grade inbound loads and outbound shipments. The app runs from any Windows-enabled tablet.

Among the claimed benefits are weigh-bridge and floor scale integration, and the use of barcoding technology to tag inbound material and scan outbound loads. The system also takes photos to record potential quality issues.

′With today′s markets, recyclers are looking for every possible way to increase the productivity and effectiveness of their operation. eDock helps by seamlessly integrating warehouse loading operations with your back-office to save time, eliminate double-entry of data, and minimise pricing, grading or other errors,′ says David Haber, president of cieTrade.

Operating as an extension of cieTrade′s existing business management software, eDock will produce all required documentation, including scale tickets, packing lists and bills of lading.
