Advanced Cylinder Management (ACM)

ACM is the industry’s leading, fully integrated cylinder tracking and management solution. It is an all-in-one solution to track and manage your entire cylinder fleet. And, total tracking means total control.

With ACM’s real-time updates, you know at any given time where your cylinders are located. Whether your cylinder is on the dock empty, on the dock full, on a truck being delivered or at a customer or vendor site, you’ll know with pinpoint accuracy.

Real-Time Fill Plant & Dock Tracking lets you track and validate cylinder movement in real-time as it moves throughout the fill plant.

Customer Dock Exchange helps you streamline customer exchanges at the dock in real-time for superior customer service.

Order Entry, Routing & Dispatching lets you create, schedule, route and dispatch truck deliveries with full integration into the mobile delivery handheld solution.

Enhanced Mobile Delivery gives you an efficient way to record delivery of cylinders, hardgoods and rental equipment with electronic proof of delivery to eliminate disputes.

Customer Site Tracking gives your customers a way to track cylinders inside their facility and allocate cylinder rent by department through a web portal or mobile device. At the end of the month, the system automatically generates a cylinder rental bill broken down by customer and department, providing an easy way to allocate cylinder rent across multiple departments.

Cylinder Dock Physical Inventory enables you to count cylinder quantities at your warehouses and correct quantity, status, and location discrepancies.

Cylinder Rental & Leases

Distributors know how important it is to track the contents of the cylinder as well as the cylinder itself. Missing out on rental income can mean the loss of thousands of dollars in revenue. With TIMS Software, you have the means to manage that process within a single, centralized procedure that tracks both the sale of the contents and the rental of the cylinder. With Customer Centric Inquiry (CCI), you’ll have a complete picture all in one view. View all of the components that affect your cylinder revenue, like price per cylinder, rent per cylinder, quantity on hand, leases, deposits, ownership and even recent transactions.

Providing a unified system versus a disjointed multiple system improves operational and financial procedures. And a streamlined process means significant time and cost savings that add up quickly!

Fill Plant & Gas Inventory

TIMS Fill Plant and Gas Inventory are extraordinary tools for managing your filling and bulk gas process. Scanning cylinders in the fill plant generates a wealth of production data. Easily plan production requirements with daily, weekly and monthly cylinder fill data.

Barcode and record lot numbers during the fill process, trace and recall easily by barcode number, generate reports to monitor volume loss ratios, and—accurately determine gas cost.

TIMS Gas Inventory automatically decrements the quantity in the bulk tank as you fill your customers’ tanks. This way, you have a better handle on when you need to reorder more bulk gas.

Truck Reconciliation

Truck reconciliation is a key element for businesses demanding more accurate billing, stronger asset control and increased production.

Scanning cylinders ensures accurate customer billing, which lends credibility to your business. Because at the end of the day when your trucks arrive back at the dock, integrated manifest documents help you reconcile trucks so you catch errors early on. The result? A proactive dispute resolution process with more accurate information upfront on miscounted ships or returns that means less time solving customer differences later.

Truck reconciliation also prevents theft and provides an internal audit that fosters accountability for both drivers and warehouse staff alike. The built-in date and time stamps help you track cylinder movement through the various cylinder statuses of your user-defined workflow. Those same date and time stamps assist in identifying where the bottlenecks are, so you’ll have the information you need to improve your production process.

The time savings, the accuracy, and the ease of the process are the three highlights of using the new Cylinder Count.

After just two months of using ACM – human errors (as far as cylinder exceptions) are all but eliminated.

We were very happy with the end result of the count. This was our first attempt, and I estimate in the future it will take maybe 1/10th the time as it used to.

- I.T. Coordinator, Industrial Source

Customer Centric is great, you have all of your customer information you need in one place. Plus, the History tab in CCI is a huge timesaver.
