Fluensee Touts New RFID Yard Management Solution
Revamped Web-Based Yard Software Brings Expanded
and a Low-Cost Way to Manage a Yard
DENVER — June
26, 2007 — RFID-enabled asset
management and supply chain solution provider
Fluensee is rolling out a new version of
its Fluensee Yard™ solution,
a browser-based yard management solution that
boasts enhanced planning, management, and
RFID visibility capabilities making it even
easier for companies to insightfully manage
the largest and most complex yard environments.
The new Fluensee Yard stands out as one of
the only browser-based solutions in the transportation
and distribution industry, and because of
this, it is very simple to deploy and manage.
Additionally, the new RFID-enabled Fluensee
Yard software includes an enhanced user interface
that provides a new level of visibility into
yard and labor productivity, as well as an
automated way to precisely locate transportation
assets and inventory. Subscription-based alerts
that can be received via multiple transports
(email, SMS, etc.) and carrier-scheduled appointments
are also new to Fluensee Yard.
“With the yard becoming a pressure
point for companies that need to more effectively
respond to customer service requirements,
while improving cost control, we’ve
updated our Yard solution to help businesses
stay a step ahead, from the gate to the yard
to the dock,” said Tim Harvie, CEO of
Fluensee. “The new Fluensee Yard solution
goes beyond yard visibility by also arming
managers with business intelligence for strategic
workflow planning, dynamic task assignments
and accurate asset and labor management.”
Fluensee Yard in Action
Fluensee Yard is a comprehensive yard management
solution that leverages RFID and real-time
locating technology to find and manage trailer
movements in and around the yard. Yard trucks
are outfitted with RFID readers and on-board
computers with GPS, which allow them to
capture real-time trailer information and
conduct drive-by inventories, and then instantly
communicate this information wirelessly
to the server. RFID-tagged trailers reduce
the time and manual labor required to check
in and out of the gatehouse.
The solution enables
effective resource planning and product
flow by generating reports and charts that
track operations, productivity and carrier
performance. Business filters can be applied
to chart queries to give the user point-in-time
snapshots. Additionally, Fluensee Yard automatically
generates alerts for everything from late
exits to “hot” trailers.
Key Features Include:
Locating System – locates
and controls trailers and containers using
RFID and RTLS technology to eliminate manual
data capture at the gate, yard and remote
Processing and Security – uses
RFID technology to support the receipt and
exit of equipment into the yard, reduce
check-in / check-out times and improve security.
and Task Management – dynamically
assigns work across all current and future
jobs in the queue via on-board terminals
to the optimal yard trucks based on real-time
yard conditions and priorities.
Planning and Modeling – provides
a graphical interface to assist with building
effective yard plans, enforcing rules and
streamlining overall yard operations.
- Reporting – provides
a variety of management and operational
reports (number of inbound/outbound shipments,
carrier performance, dock productivity,
yard utilization, etc.).
The new Fluensee Yard solution is now available
through Fluensee and its select partners.
