Datadocks is a leading dock scheduling software that helps warehouses manage appointments, increase efficiency, and more. The software allows managers to adopt a more proactive approach to dock scheduling so they can prevent unnecessary bottlenecks in the supply chain that disrupt operations and ultimately affect the bottom line. This is why warehouses in diverse industries have been fast to integrate the software into their processes. As a result, warehouses have been able to minimize truck wait times, maximize throughput, and improve overall warehouse efficiency.
Datadocks was created to give warehouse managers a better tool to manage their dock appointments than Excel. With Excel, Warehouses had to manually update the information and usually only had one person in charge of changing the details. This was inefficient and often didn't contain any specific data about shipments, load and unload times, and more. This caused a pileup of appointments on Mondays and Fridays instead of a steady load throughout the week.
But through their software, Datadocks gets everyone in the warehouse on the same page, automates dock scheduling, and records all the data businesses need to identify inefficiencies. Companies who've used Datadocks report that the UI is simple and easy to use, making them significantly more efficient. It also enables better relationships with carriers who don't have to arrive earlier than they need to and have more time to plan their routes. Their clients include warehouses, distribution centers, and large retail stores that want customers always to get the needed products without delays.
A spokesperson for the company said, "The software enables appointments to be spread out over the week. Now warehouse workers don't have Monday blues and can schedule appointments easily. The software takes care of everything in excel, so they don't have to go through the hassles of learning new software. Businesses can also manage maintenance, repairs, team meetings, or training when scheduling is automated. The software helps improve efficiency across the supply chain."
He went on to add, “We have clients tell us how the implementation of the software has enabled them to secure better long-term rates from shippers who don’t have to wait for hours to unload the cargo.”
The software also helps companies reduce safety incidents as workers don’t have to rush the clock to clear the massive backlog which increases the risk of them getting injured. This can lead to employees becoming demotivated and an expensive lawsuit that can devastate the company financially. This reduces employee turnover rates, which is a massive problem associated with warehouses. Furthermore, with the incoming truck schedule, managers can improve their labor planning so that the warehouse is never over or understaffed.
