Our Systems Integration capabilities are widely used by our clients and offer real benefits to the end users and processes.

We were proudly named a "Best Of Breed" YMS solution in 2007 by Aberdeen Group. In the 5 years since we have continually improved the YardView program and are honored to partner with many of the largest companies in world as their YMS solutions provider. We continue to develop our program to remain the premier solution amongst Yard Management providers and work with our clients to satisfy new requirements. It is our commitment to offer the highest level of customer service and support to our customers.

In an industry where there are very few strict rules and processes and where the heavy users of the system need a tool that is easy to use, intuitive and offers quick access to key information, YardView simply works.
Today YardView continues its commitment to provide a program that easy to use and highly configurable to fit your operations. We hope to partner with you and help you gain the benefits of the YardView system.

Jim Harris, founder of Cypress Inland Corporation and creator of YardView, had over 40 years of Transportation and Logistics experience when he saw a problem that needed to be addressed.  It was 1998 and while consulting for a Fortune 500 Retailer he saw a system in place to help them manage trailers when in the Yard.  He saw that this tool could be very helpful, but noticed this particular solution also caused some problems.  It wasn't very easy to use, adopt or train users on... and it wasn't configurable to meet the requirements of the site.  As a computer savvy and early adopter of technology all his life, he knew he could design something that could really work.  With his years of experience and knowledge in the industry, coupled with his computer skills, he began creating a program that was extremely flexible to fit a wide variety of operational processes while remaining dedicated to the importance of keeping it simple to use.  YardView was born.
