PINC Solutions, a supplier of real-time asset visibility technology, has enhanced its Yard Hound product line. This growing portfolio of RTLS-enabled yard visibility and management systems for distribution logistics is designed with a scalable architecture requiring minimal capital investment in infrastructure. Yard Hound can be deployed to address the mission-critical challenges first and expanded later as needed. The Yard Hound family of products includes a number of modules to track assets and increase productivity.
Yard Hound Guard monitors trailer traffic through the gate in real time and keeps track of which trailers are in the yard and their age. For fleet trailers that have permanent tags attached, Yard Hound Guard enables automation of the check-in and check-out processes and increases gate throughput.
Yard Hound Locator tracks the location of the mobile asset in the yard in real time. Live information about trailer and yard truck movement and status are collected continuously, and performance analysis such as yard truck and lane utilization can be generated automatically based on custom metrics. Designed to work with traditional yard management systems and warehouse management systems as well as other legacy and proprietary logistics management software, Yard Hound Locator can be integrated seamlessly to provide real-time data needed for enterprise applications to make optimized decisions.
Yard Hound Director presents all the real-time information available from Yard Hound Locator through PINC's own intuitive Web-based user interface. With the in-cab touch-screen monitor option, it also allows two-way communication between the yard managers and the yard truck drivers for sending and confirming the receipt of trailer move tasks. Leveraging real-time visibility data and sharing them with the yard truck drivers, the system provides maximum flexibility and all the tools necessary for effective yard management.
In addition, several optional components are available to extend system features, such as temperature monitoring of refrigerated trailers. PINC also offers hosted services with round-the-clock technical support to further minimize the burden on customers' IT resources.
