Splice presents its court management system and changes the spelling of its name
Today, Splice announced the launch of Yard Spot, its integrated yard management system application built on the foundation of Splice. The cloud-based application combines multiple data sources into a common operating view to reduce turnaround times, avoid holding costs, and increase container yard productivity.
Yard Spot displays location data from global positioning system (GPS) and electronic recording devices (ELD), operational data from transportation management systems and terminals, and real-time locations of fixed and mobile cameras. Integrating disparate data sources provides a complete picture of the job site to find equipment quickly and easily, and helps prioritize movements for dispatch operations.
“Yard Spot enters the market when effective yard management is essential,” said Kevin Speers, CEO of Splice. “Its benefits go far beyond knowing where the equipment is located. Yard Spot helps conserve valuable truck power, reduce equipment delay costs and reduce yard congestion.
The visual representation of construction sites by Yard Spot has many advantages:
– Know where containers and equipment are located in real time to allow trucks to quickly enter and exit your facility.
– Prioritize dispatch movements to reduce per diems and detention costs by matching the last free, entry / exit, empty / full day to the location of the equipment.
-Audit the yard from anywhere, anytime and use the common operations view to see potential issues and resolve them immediately.
“Yard Spot is powered by the Splice Integration Platform and shows how we can stack applications that otherwise might not be able to communicate with each other to create a whole new tool,” said Chris Ruddick, COO of Splice. “Splice is continually adding integrations that will strengthen Yard Spot and our overall ability to improve supply chain logistics. Splice can integrate EDI, APIs, sensors and IoT devices, which opens up a whole new level of visibility, analysis and automation for Yard Spot users.
In addition, Splice has announced that it has changed the spelling of its name. “The magic of Splice is analogous to splicing the rope. We take existing applications and data and combine them to create something stronger and more useful for supply chain and logistics operations, ”said Speers. “The name highlights many facets of our value, and by using the accepted spelling of splice, we can better articulate the benefits of our solutions.” Formerly written as Splyc, the company is rolling out updates to its visual identity and brand.
