There is no need to replace all of your existing loading dock equipment to connect online. iDock Link can be added to most loading docks to offer the benefits of myQ Dock Management, regardless what dock equipment is installed.
Mounted at any loading dock, iDock Link utilizes a series of sensors installed throughout the dock to gather loading data and send it to the cloud for online analytics in myQ Dock Management, helping to improve your operational efficiency.
For more details on how each individual sensor can help maximize the effectiveness of your loading docks, see below.
Track the amount of times trailers are at your docks and on average, how busy your docks are each hour.
Review the amount of time a dock leveler is deployed to determine how long loading actually took.
Monitor the vehicle restraint usage at your docks and ensure trailers are safely secured to the dock during loading.
For safety, security, and energy consumption, become alerted if a dock door is left open without a trailer present.
Analyze loading activity to ensure personnel are efficient and trucks aren’t sitting idle for too long without any activity.
Keep your hydraulic dock levelers running smooth by maintaining sufficient fluid levels.
