Software: PINC Solutions announces YMS is SAP integrated and certified

PINC Solutions announced the integration and certification of PINC’s award-winning Yard Hound, yard management system (YMS), with SAP’s Extended Warehouse Management solution (EWM) and its Enterprise Services platform and joined the SAP Partner Program.

By ·

PINC Yard Hound is now the first and only real-time YMS that has successfully integrated to SAP Extended Warehouse Management. For SAP customers, the integration of these two award-winning applications gives them new and unprecedented supply chain visibility allowing them to see actual and up to the minute locations and status of shipments, inventory and trailer assets.

·    Delivering proven results to customers, Yard Hound integration with SAP Enterprise allows users to chart, view, analyze and model supply chain data retrieved directly from SAP Extended Warehouse Management.

·    For SAP customers who have implemented SAP Yard and Dock, adding PINC’s YMS solution brings real-time arrivals, departures and appointments information to the SAP desktop, and allows customers to seamlessly view real-time locationing and tasking information from their PINC desktops. PINC and EWM are complimentary applications, giving customers true visibility over their operations.

·    For SAP integrators, this is an opportunity to build new functionality into EWM and deliver increased ROI for customers. SAP integrators can now work with PINC and build out integrations for their customers using PINC’s API and the new PINC/SAP code base.

This effort is indicative of PINC’s commitment to deep integration with its customer’s operations, enterprise platforms and Warehouse Management Systems like EWM. To pass the stringent and exacting SAP process, PINC had to integrate its API to the SAP EWM specification, build an integration including newly developed use cases, and then certify the integration on an SAP live EWM platform. This rigorous testing helps provide customers with the assurance that future implementations will be successful.

“Attaining SAP certification is an important step in the development of PINC Solutions’ YMS platform,” said Ken Colby, CEO for PINC Solutions. “Our customers have asked for it, and our ability to accomplish it successfully shows not only our commitment to them, but also the sophistication of PINC’s award-winning SaaS platform. We look forward to working with SAP and its customers.”
