For shipping yards to run efficiently, they need arrivals and departures tracked, locations and load status logged.
PINC’s YMS with the Algiz 10X lets yard managers monitor, schedule and record events and inventory across large facilities, based on accurate, real-time data.
Efficiency, accuracy and automation that return tangible time and cost savings.
Many supply chain inefficiencies originate in yards — areas where goods are trailered and taxied between storage and shipment.
Handheld business partners are innovators and connectors. They dream up new technology solutions for the markets they inhabit, then pair these solutions with trusted Handheld rugged tablets backed by personalized support.
Our partner PINC is bringing creativity and connection to customers via its Yard Management System (YMS), a complete hardware and software solution that resolves supply chain challenges in distribution and manufacturing center yards.
Many supply chain inefficiencies originate in yards — areas where goods are trailered and taxied between storage and shipment. For example, an arrival may not be recorded, or a loading dock may get double-booked. Even small missteps can turn into serious issues as they trickle down the supply chain.
But for a yard that runs smoothly — arrivals and departures tracked, locations and load status logged — successes are amplified instead, saving huge amounts of time and money.
Traditionally, yard management systems have relied on two-way radio, pen and paper, and lots of driving and manual recording tasks. PINC uses a combination of RFID and drone technology to perform automated yard inventory checks, then delivers data from these checks to YMS software on Algiz 10X ultra-rugged tablets in real time.
PINC’s YMS allows managers and shuttle drivers to navigate the yard, locate and move inventory, send and receive assignments and report status updates with maximum efficiency — and all of this information is saved in the YMS for ongoing access and reporting.
PINC’s solution is the top-selling YMS in the world. They have paired their software with other ruggedized tablets in the past, but turned to Handheld for its superior price point, high quality, integrated features and product support.
Currently, PINC customers are using hundreds of Algiz 10X units in industries such as food and beverage manufacturing, consumer packaged goods (CPG) manufacturing, third-party logistics, automotive and retail.
Interacting with 3D maps and communication tools is easy on the Algiz 10X, with its simple navigation features and large, sunlight-readable screen. Since the Algiz 10X rugged tablet is purpose-built for challenging environments, rattling away in a truck cab for hours at a time is no problem, even when you add exposure to dust or extremely hot and cold temperatures.
“Handheld offers products that are durable, with the feature set we need, at a reasonable price. And all this along with quality support, which makes the customer experience great,” says Steve Huey, PINC’s Vice President of Operations.
PINC’s YMS lets yard managers monitor, schedule and record events and inventory across large facilities, based on accurate, real-time data.
