Terminal automation software: Flexible and secure
Dearman’s terminal automation software automates certain manual processes in a terminal, specifically around load authorisation, product movement (via multiple transportation methods), product measurement, documentation, and reporting.
The software is flexible and open to integration with other siloed systems and hardware, including meter skids, weight scales, tank gauging systems, and secure access control systems.
Dearman has pre-built connectors to over 25 popular field devices and has built its core software with a modular design so it can be efficiently customised and tailored to customer needs.
