Pioneering a new way to automate

2020-02-20

Overall I am pleased with the experience with utilizing the PINC solution. I marked down the customer service portion, but that is more reflective of accounting issues or engineering delays. Our project manager was\is amazing. He spent the weeks leading up to the rollout on site with us and felt like a member of the staff. He follows up regularly and is the main driver behind the success of our implementation. PINC has become a named portion of our IT landscape.

Pros

The PINC application has made it possible to automate a process that was performed either manually or on home grown applications that were difficult to manage, weren't robust, and were prone to failure. We worked with the engineering team at PINC to develop an automated process where our sequence requirements were generated by us, transmitted to PINC, and then to our over the road carriers and yard drivers. The visibility of the containers in the application has become an integral part of our operation.

Cons

The turnaround time on changes can often take longer than my management expects, but we are usually asking for significant changes.

PINC has been working excellent! Great way to keep up with every truck that enters our gate.

2018-07-26

Pros

It's easy to navigate to each tab to input data, and to look up information pertaining to gate entries, reports, assets, user id's, or updating important information.

Cons

Nothing that I can think of at the moment that can make me dislike using this software, or possibly want to change it.

PINC YMS

2020-01-21

We were able to lower our overall cost of yard management and greatly improve our yard visibility.

Pros

The ramp-up, installation & training went well on all 5 of the sites we have launched with PINC over the last 9 years.

Cons

Working through the required configuration elements, but, the efforts were necessary and expected.

Yard management usage

2018-08-03

I thought my overall experience starts at the top. The support team at PINC is outstanding. As long as we have been with why YMS I have never experienced a bad experience but call in the Support system . They are always helpful and insightful. I’m sure there is still more to know about the system that would benefit both the support team and the customer. I welcome any opportunity to participate in brainstorming or more feedback. I have enjoyed the system and I believe it’s a great value to our customers.

Pros

Easy to keep the yard updated on where assess are.

Cons

One of the things I don’t like about the system is the drivers cannot talk back through the system to the inside supervisors. It would be nice if the driver could type a message into the system back to the leads in regards to locating or not being able to locate a trailer. This would give more clarity to the system .

PINC YMS

2020-02-19

Overall we have been well pleased with the PINC YMS. It is a must have tool on a daily bases now.

Pros

The maps, live views, easy of moving trailer on yard, and the easy of the yard checks

Cons

The guard log. It does not show inbound and outbound. Once an Outbound trailer is marked as OB the inbound information disappears.
