Delivery Management System for Facilities Management Companies

 

 

Zone Manager DMS for Facility Management

Zone Manager is an ideal Delivery Management System for Facilities Management companies. It helps managers and their suppliers schedule incoming deliveries to a facility, in 3 easy steps.

Zone Manager gives facility managers an overview of all booked deliveries, featuring a calendar-style interface. Suppliers and tenants can request or book slots at any of the delivery points, which are fully configurable based on your site requirements.

If your facility uses Consolidation Centres, Zone Manager can be used to manage incoming materials to these.

Zone Manager allows delivery points and other resources (e.g. goods lifts) to be managed centrally, by the facility manager or separately, by the tenants. Accessing the system is invite-only, for improved security, with self-registration for suppliers available if required.

Useful features for your facility management tasks

  • Provides information to enable rationalisation
  • Central control of delivery points
  • Live updates of delivery status
  • Gates, loading bays, docks and goods lifts can all be brought under a central system

  • Airports
  • Event Spaces
  • Mixed Use Spaces & others

Consolidation Centres

Commercial Properties often have limited access to delivery areas and loading bays. Strict controls are placed on the number and timings of deliveries a site can have.

In some central locations, loading bays have to be underground with ramp or lift access, adding significant travel time between gate and dock. The goods lift within a building becomes a bottleneck and needs to be managed.

Allowing tenants to individually order supplies and have them delivered as and when they want is becoming increasingly untenable.

Consolidation centres are becoming necessary to reduce traffic and make best use of resources – and Zone Manager effectively supports this throguh intelligent decision making capabilities.
