OAK BROOK, Ill., April 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- LiftMaster®, the leading brand of professionally installed access control solutions, is introducing myQ Dock Management as an enhanced service to its Smart Facility Access solution. The new myQ Dock Management service provides a seamless, real-time view across warehouse doors and loading docks that are powered by LiftMaster Commercial Operators and loading dock equipment from iDock, Poweramp, McGuire, and DLM. When facility managers add myQ Dock Management to their LiftMaster Access solution they are able to collect real-time insight around daily operations, enabling them to make smarter, data-driven decisions.

"Managing a facility with multiple access points and loading docks can be a stressful and demanding job, and any inefficiencies can result in increased expenses or safety issues" said Tom Potosnak, Sr. Director of LiftMaster's Commercial Business. "myQ Dock Management expands awareness beyond the door to surrounding dock equipment, giving facility managers better insight on how they can improve loading efficiency as well as dock safety, performance and utilization."

Expanded analytic capabilities provided by myQ Dock Management provides detailed information around dock operations. The data is then broken down into visual reports, making it easy for facility managers to see what's happening at each loading dock and quickly make any necessary changes needed to increase efficiency, improve load times and reduce detention fees.

Intuitive myQ technology connects LiftMaster's reliable door operators and loading dock equipment with iDock Controls from Poweramp, McGuire and DLM for a scalable view across warehouse doors and loading docks, while myQ Facility and myQ Dock Management software services deliver valuable real-time data and analytics for a complete Smart Facility Access solution. Through an annual subscription, facility managers can improve their warehouse operations with the help of:

myQ Facility - A cloud-based service that provides real-time data, insights and reporting across all myQ connected LiftMaster Commercial Door Operators, Gate Operators and Access Controls within the warehouse. Rich features include:
