Dynamic Systems Inc, a Redmond WA software developer specializing in bar-code data collection, has announced a scale interface for the SIMBA food and produce tracking system.
SIMBA (Specialized Inventory Management with Bar-code Accuracy) provides food processors the ability to process, label, and track their products from “field to customer,” increasing productivity speed and traceability. The SIMBA scale interface solves the problem of how to produce and track complete product labeling for fresh food on the fly.
Designed for companies that need accurate information for production and sales, SIMBA tracks, labels, and ships an unlimited number of products with specific species and characteristics. The system automatically generates bills of lading and verifies shipments, eliminating charge-backs.
SIMBA allows growers, packers, and shippers to track and organize products by pallet, lot, and case. Inventory can be tracked by location, allowing moves from warehouse to warehouse, including repeated commingling and re-boxing at any point in the process without losing lot traceability.
This software now interfaces directly to any scale that has a digital output to a serial or USB port. Weight of the carton is automatically added to the database within SIMBA and may be added to the label on the fly. The ability to have this information automatically can save the producer or packer time when processing and packing a high volume of product.
Key results from implementing SIMBA include increased production speed; the ability to get real-time, accurate production reports; ability to fulfill traceability requirements; accurate inventory; professional-looking carton and pallet labels; and expedited van loading.
