Through real-time tracking and reporting by mobile scanners and a web based application, security, driver and yard management staff can locate and track critical information about each vehicle that enters a facility including temperature, fuel, mileage, and detention alerts.

It is easy and inexpensive to customize to different specific business processes using web services and XML. and it can be up and running in days, not weeks!

Yard Director(TM) supports email alerts that are triggered when user defined thresholds are crossed.

On-site administrators can configure the alert thresholds through the web based administration console in Yard Director and new alert types can be custom tailored to each unique business.

With Yard Director(TM), security logs all plant ingress and egress with wireless hand-held scanners, and optionally generates a bar coded YMS tag using a wireless printer for each vehicle, which can be used to speed and simplify vehicle identification. This provides complete control over all vehicles in the yard and their status.
