Critically, our Automated Gatehouse solution integrates with Warehouse Management and Yard Management systems, so is a perfect fit for your current range.
Our system replaces non value add manual process
Companies who currently have manned gatehouse operations at their distribution centres have varied requirements for their security personnel to carry out.
In most cases they check paperwork, provide Health & Safety advice and direction, and simply allow the driver to proceed into the depot through a manually operated barrier. In some cases the checking of paperwork is not a necessity, so the colleague is simply there to press a button to raise the barrier.
Gatehouse automation improves efficiency
Our automated access control system aligns Health & Safety, efficient traffic management, site access and one view of the logistics activity on site at any point in time. It manages the end-to-end flow of vehicle, driver and load, and provides accuracy of data acquisition.
We provide a simple to follow, multilingual touchscreen solution that fully integrates into a distribution centre’s existing access control systems and networks to ensure a seamless operation. ANPR tracking is incorporated to provide transport recognition, guidance and control. This is complemented by a clear communication capability via an integrated, two-way voice control system.
