SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tideworks Technology® Inc., a full-service provider of comprehensive terminal management and planning software solutions, today announced the first deployment of Forecast Mobile Lite at Conley Terminal in the Port of Boston, which is owned and operated by the Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport). The mobile application allows terminal customers to search for container availability information in real time.
“We’re very pleased to partner with Conley Terminal for the initial deployment of the mobile version of our customer service web portal,” said Michael Schwank, president of Tideworks Technology. “Forecast Mobile Lite represents our continued dedication to providing our customers with innovative new tools that help them work more efficiently. It was built on a powerful and flexible technology platform, which provides our team the ability to develop more mobile apps in the future.”
Forecast Mobile Lite provides terminal customers, primarily trucking companies and drivers, with access to container availability information on their smartphone anytime, anywhere. Users can get all the information they need before they arrive at the terminal, which saves time and helps avoid potential issues at the terminal gate. With the first version of the mobile app, users can:
- Search for containers by Bill of Lading or container number
- Instantly view release and availability status
- Add multiple containers to a personal “Watch List” to easily monitor their status
- View other container-related information such as hazardous information, vessel/voyage and whether any fees are due
Customers at Conley Terminal who have a Forecast web portal account can download Forecast Mobile Lite from the Apple App Store and Google Play. To register for Forecast, visit http://www.tideworks.com/products/forecast/.
Forecast Mobile Lite will later be extended to other terminals, and subsequent versions will provide port community users with additional features and benefits, including the ability to search for subscribing terminals in the area and connect to multiple terminals.
