EXE Technologies' EXceed Yard Extends Inventory, Asset, and Labor Management Beyond the Four Walls.
DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 12, 2002
Global supply chain execution (SCE) leader EXE Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: EXEE), continues to expand its supply chain execution solution footprint with the release of EXceed(TM) Yard, a yard management software application that enables more effective inventory, asset, and labor management.
EXceed Yard extends inventory visibility into trailers and expands control of the distribution center to the boundaries of the yard, helping to increase customer service levels, revenues, and inventory productivity. Orders can now be filled using inventory that has yet to be unloaded from the trailers - or trailers containing hot inventory can take priority for unloading. This reduces production line stoppages, short shipments, and out-of-stocks, increasing sales and overall customer service levels. EXceed Yard also reduces spoilage of temperature-sensitive products by alerting personnel of the need to re-fuel climate controlled trailers.
To maximize trailer utilization and reduce unnecessary detention or demurrage charges, EXceed Yard tracks the location, dimensions, owner, and count of all trailers within all the enterprises' yard operations. Trailers can be tracked using RFID technology or through the windows-based product. EXceed Yard also manages trailer maintenance schedules to ensure the fleet is in good working condition. All trailer and driver event information - including arrival time, location, unloading, return to yard, loading, and departure - is captured and maintained for performance analysis and billing verification.
"Today's thin margins, short product life cycles, and ever-demanding customers require companies to closely manage their inventories," said Benjamin Hood, vice president and general manager of EXE's EXceed Fulfill Business Unit. "In addition, whether owned, leased, or contracted, idle trailers are costly. With EXceed Yard, customers can substantially improve their inventory visibility and asset utilization, delivering significant results to their bottom line."
Traditional yard management is a labor-intensive process. EXceed Yard helps reduce labor costs and maximize yard productivity through system directed task management. Using trailer profiles, driver profiles, and proximity information EXceed Yard determines the most cost effective task assignments. EXceed Yard's task management functionality can also be extended to meet the needs of complex yard operations through task linking. EXceed Yard finds trailers matching user-defined criteria and links together multiple tasks to create task dependencies that further automate the task management process. Task Assignment in EXceed Yard is RF enabled to eliminate costly recording, keying, and verbal communication errors.
Available now, EXceed Yard is an open solution that can operate as a stand-alone application or be integrated easily to existing warehouse management, transportation management, order management, and dispatching systems. Through a preconfigured integration with EXceed Fulfill WMS, the Yard system will automatically generate move tasks for putaway of empty trailers or bring empty trailers to the dock for loading.
