Does anyone know what a loading dock intragration point is?

I work for a security company that installs ip cameras.  The owner is asking if we can provide a loading-dock integration point for smart phones, paging, etc. but not referring to an actual shipping loading dock.  I do have some IT knowledge but maybe this is a term that is used that I'm not aware of.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Can't you ask the boss what he means? Maybe some customer made it up and told him this term. I googled a few terms but nothing really came up. I never heard loading docks integration for smartphones. It is some tracking device for the phones and pagers?

Maybe he means docking station for smart phones? Some older smart phones you had to "dock" to syncronize your contacts/email, etc with your pc.. Docking station connected to PC and also serves as a charger.
its not an it phrase Imho
