BGI International, a company that sells logistics and dock scheduling software, has introduced a scheduling solution built on the .NET framework. SmartDock .NET leverages the ease-of-use of BGI's SmartDock Scheduling System with the Web integration capabilities of Microsoft's .NET platform. The result is a fully Web-enabled dock scheduling tool that's highly scalable, allowing implementation by the smallest warehouses and the largest manufacturers and distribution enterprises in the industry.
SmartDock .NET can be hosted locally or deployed using the SaaS (Software as a Service) delivery model. It features Webbased deployment for connecting users via LAN, WAN, Internet or an application hosted by BGI. This eliminates the need for software layers like Terminal Services and Citrix, and it gives customers on-demand access to their data from anywhere. A realtime dashboard displays critical operational metrics, such as loads due, scheduled and shipped/received. A SmartLot function captures dropped trailer/container data to track arrival and departure times as well as what product is stored on the equipment. Carrier Web scheduling allows appointment times to be set via the Internet.
