4 Sight Connect Data

Integrated Data Solution for Dock Operations

March 25, 2021
4SIGHT Connect Data helps dock operations integrate and improve the accuracy of data generated from a variety of loading dock event data points into their process flow.

4SIGHT Logistics Solution has introduced 4SIGHT Connect Data to help warehouse and distribution center (DC) dock operations integrate and improve the accuracy of data generated from a variety of loading dock event data points into their process flow using industry-standard methods and practices.

With 4SIGHT Connect Data, end users can:

Integrate dock operations into different systems.

Gain more accurate operational insight and the ability to tailor data to fit individual needs.

Leverage existing technologies for required connectivity to either a Kelley or Serco Digital Master Control Panel (which serves as the dock data collection point for equipment status and operation).

Create custom reports and dashboards, along with KPI’s and metrics.

Using 4SIGHT Connect Data, event-based dock operation data points—such as trailer presence status at a specific dock door or the status of a dock door itself—are sent to the end-user within seconds in real-time via MQTT broker (combination publish-subscribe network protocol and server). 4SIGHT Connect Data then delivers the actual data as a JSON payload for each defined event.

Dock operation end users also have the option to manually collect dock data via RESTful API calls. This option is especially important in cases when connectivity is lost for any reason.

For 4SIGHT Connect Data end-users to fully maximize the product’s full potential, it is recommended that they at least have trailer presence sensors in use at all dock positions. To further utilize 4SIGHT Connect Data’s capabilities, trailer restraints are recommended as well.
