Yard Commander YMS is simple, has a clean and intuitive interface, and is easy to use even for computer novices.
The software is not complicated by unnecessary “features” that only serve to clutter the screen and frustrate users. Because we've made it simple and painless, you’re sure to get buy-in from your employees.
Visual cues provide quick view of alarms triggered, contents of trailer and comments.
Know the status of a trailer (e.g. inbound/outbound) or create your own statuses that are important to your business.
Create trailer attributes that matter to your organization, such as the load type, trailer type, or contents (eg. lowboy, reefer, hazmat, temperature)
Best of all you don't need to contact us to create custom statuses or attributes. Create them yourself, any time, on the fly. These can be in the form of lists, check boxes or free text.
A default alarm is automatically set for each trailer with the option to modify it at check-in.
Receive an e-mail warning when an alarm is triggered so you have time to act before it's too late. You don't even have to be at your desk to receive alerts if your mobile device is setup to receive e-mail.
Set a priority on trailers so everyone will always know which trailers need attention first.
With alerts and priorities set, your employees are now accountable to ensure tasks/issues are taken care of in a timely manner.
The system can automatically send e-mail to your carriers for trailer pickup or other correspondence, and with a record stored there’s indisputable proof for both your employees and the carriers.
