ALAMEDA, CA, April 10, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/
-- PINC Solutions, the leading provider of advanced yard management systems (YMS) today announced that the company has been included in the list of "Cool Vendors" in the Supply Chain Management report by Gartner, Inc.
According to the March 26, 2012 report, this year's "Cool Vendors" prove once again that, although aspects of the SCM technology market are mature, innovation continues as companies look for capabilities that make them more competitive or improve their operating metrics.
Traditionally, yard management has been looked at as a means to manage the life-cycle of a trailer and its shipment within a given facility. PINC's Advanced-YMS extends this view to the supply chain network, and enables trading partners to manage the life-cycle of a shipment and a trailer across multiple facilities and across corporate boundaries. By sharing real-time, accurate, and actionable shipment and trailer status information, PINC's customers reduce the idle time that trailers (loaded or empty) and drivers spend inside their facilities. As a result, they significantly reduce their transportation, operations, and inventory carrying costs.
"Recognition comes with hard work and strong customer success stories," said Ken Colby, CEO of PINC Solutions. "We believe our inclusion in the Cool Vendor report by Gartner affirms our mission to enable enterprises to reduce operational costs, increase supply chain efficiencies, and gain competitive advantage."
