C3 and PINC Solutions Partner to Integrate Passive RFID on Pilot Project

June 30, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Mont Tremblant, Canada, June 30, 2007 - C3 Solutions, the world leader in yard management, and PINC Solutions, the leader in low-infrastructure, real-time visibility, announced today a strategic partnership to integrate PINC’s Yard Hound real-time visibility system with C3’s Yard Smart yard management solution.

“We have always maintained that real-time trailer position data is a real value-add to our yard management system. But, in the past, the cost of this data has been too high for us to justify it to our clients,” says Greg Braun Vice President of Business Development at C3 Solutions. “The cost effectiveness of PINC’s solution makes standard passive RFID very attractive to our present and future customers.”
The combined solutions from C3 and PINC will be deployed as part of a yard management pilot project with a leading logistics and transportation provider during the summer of 2007.

“We are very pleased with the way that C3 has completely integrated our technology into their yard management solution,” explains Aleks Gollu CEO of PINC Solutions. “With PINC integration into C3, customers with serious yard management issues can utilize cost effective yard visibility combined with the automation and optimization features available in C3’s Yard Smart for an even faster return on investment.”

C3 and PINC are presenting their integrated solution this week at the C3 user conference in Mont Tremblant.
