The results of the development project delivered a bespoke Windows application that effectively manages the whole process from arrival of the vehicle and through the sampling, weighing and tipping process. Barcode technology was also introduced to the tipping authorisation process to ensure continuity throughout the operation and strict adherence to quality control.
Their bespoke web application provides Gleadell with a comprehensive reporting tool which can be accessed online. This reporting application connects to the back-end database and provides Gleadell Head Office with a complete overview of all port operations.
