Key Features of ASSIST4 Monitoring & Alerting
- The solution’s new messaging feature automatically generates text or email alerts when pre-defined events occur.
- Businesses can notify the consignee when the goods are issued, email customs documents to the customs broker when shipments are ready, generate text alerts when delays in the supply chain occur and more.
- The software features a message cockpit in which all text and email alerts are logged. ASSIST4 Monitoring & Alerting lets businesses attach various document types to business objects where they can be downloaded by all supply chain partners. This may be useful if a business wishes to make customs documents available in advance for the import customs clearance.
- The software now also features an enhanced authorization concept that allows role-based access to business object attachments, so that only users with one or more defined roles can view a particular document.
