Busy Busy Busy!!

Things have been quite busy for us at Sentier this year. So busy in fact that we’ve neglected to keep our blog updated – sorry, we’ll try to do better. 

In addition to several large and exciting projects, we’ve experienced a tremendous growth of Yard Commander with new installations being added regularly. We are not at liberty to publicly announce every project or Yard Commander installation but will post announcements from time to time as able.

Yard Commander launched at 7 reLogistics facilities

We are very pleased to announce the successful launch of Yard Commander for reLogistics at 7 facilities in 5 states.

Working closely with the team at reLogistics we developed status boards, customized for each facility, which display live data on large screen TVs. With color highlighting designated by status, these displays provide a valuable overview of the current situation at a glance.


Brunato Farms finds labeling quick and easy with custom PTI solution from Sentier

Greenhouse grower, Brunato Farms approached us to develop a custom PTI labeling solution for a newly installed 12-lane pack line. The solution we provided allows workers to print GS1 compliant PTI labels on demand right at the pack line with a single press of a button.

When pallets are ready to ship, labels are printed and scanned and the system generates and prints paperwork right in the shipping area.

A custom designed harvest report provides Brunato with a valuable overview of the yield achieved from various zones within the facility.

Sentier Implements Custom Cloud-Based ERP/WMS for Butcher Industrial Finishings Inc.


Our blog may have been quiet lately but we’ve sure been keeping busy!  

In the summer we were approached by the forward thinking management team at BIFI. The challenge: to replace their entire outdated system. This included everything from inventory management, production scheduling, shipping and receiving, invoicing, purchasing, you name it.

The solution we delivered is an entirely custom cloud-based system. The benefits of a cloud-based solution for BIFI are many. In addition to allowing authorized users to access the system on the road or at home, offering support for a wide range of internet enabled devices, and freeing BIFI from the responsibility of security, maintenance and backups, the primary benefit of our solution is affordability.

Our solution comes with no upfront costs. There is no need to upgrade any servers, no expensive software packages to buy. Everything including the use of the system, regular backups, maintenance and support are all covered by the low monthly fee.

We enjoyed working with the management team at BIFI on this project and thank all involved for making the launch go so smoothly. We are quite proud that this large project was completed ahead of schedule while maintaining our high standard for quality. To us, true success is when our customers are completely satisfied. We are very pleased to add the BIFI System to our list of successes.

PTI Label System launched at Del Sol Greenhouses


We are pleased to announce the successful launch of a custom integrated PTI label printing and shipping system at Del Sol Greenhouses. 

The system enables Del Sol to print GS1 compliant PTI labels as well as custom pallet labels. This makes shipping a snap. Pallets are scanned as they are loaded onto a trailer and when complete a packing slip is printed in the shipping area. 

Finally the system is integrated seamlessly with QuickBooks allowing sales orders to be generated automatically.
