    FAQ

    What, if no internet under the hopper?

    The tally cleck records truck loads on the smartphone as the dry bulk loads are dumped into the trucks. The tally recordings are kept on the smartphone, sync'ed to the cloud app server whenever 3G or wifi is again available, f.ex. when back in the office using office-WiFi, maintaining the real-time captured gate-move timestamps and GPS location.

    Why will the cargo owner (charterer) love this?

    The tallying is done in real time, auto-sync'ed to the cloud, with auto-capturing of timestamp and GPS, hence documenting what happened in the physical world.
