Stamford, Connecticut-based cieTrade, a provider of business management software for commodity trading and recycling companies, has introduced “eDock,” a new mobile app designed for its suite of specialized productivity tools for recycling companies. The company says eDock eliminates paper breakdown sheets and shipping logs commonly used in recycling plants, allowing warehouse personnel to process and grade inbound loads and outbound shipments with a mobile touchscreen app that can be used directly from the loading dock or scale-enabled forklift.

“With today’s markets, recyclers are looking for every possible way to increase the productivity and effectiveness of their operation,” David Haber, president of cieTrade Systems Inc., says. “EDock helps by seamlessly integrating warehouse loading operations with your back-office to save time, eliminate double-entry of data and minimize pricing, grading or other errors.”

The eDock app uses a touchscreen console interface that can be run from any Windows tablet, such as the Panasonic ToughPad, the company says. It offers weigh-bridge (truck) and floor scale integration, supports barcoding technology to tag inbound material and scan outbound loads and captures photos to document quality issues, according to cieTrade. It also produces all of the documentation needed such as scale tickets, packing lists, bills of lading and more.

EDock works as an extension of cieTrade’s namesake commodity trading and recycling software and is provided for the benefit of clients using their system, the company notes.
