Dynamic Systems creates “Lite” version of produce traceability software
Dynamic Systems Inc. has launched a low-cost version of its SIMBA traceability and inventory tracking system for fresh food producers.
The new version of SIMBA, called SIMBA Lite, is designed to give smaller producer growers, packers and shippers accessibility to the same features of higher-level traceability systems. Implementation is under $10,000.
Some features include:
Comply with traceability and labeling requirements
The SIMBA Lite system prints Produce Traceability Initiative- (PTI) compliant serialized case and pallet labels in a batch format designed to make them easy to adhere to finished goods as they come off the pack line. The printed labels are recorded in the SIMBA database as inventory, with all specific characteristics of the product type, grade, size, weight, etc., and it is easy to print reports that provide full traceability meeting government regulations.
SIMBA inventory and shipping
Inventory is created as labels are printed, providing a perpetual in stock inventory. When product is “shipped” from SIMBA, information regarding the customer, date, etc. is recorded, closing the traceability loop and allowing inventory in stock to be reduced.
Ability to upgrade
SIMBA Lite users can upgrade with the mobile application, SIMBA Logistics, which uses barcode scanners to track inventory within a warehouse and to automatically reduce inventory as product is shipped. SIMBA Lite can be upgraded to SIMBA Pro, which brings the label printing onto the plant floor and provides real-time inventory and production information along with increased productivity.
Key results include accurate inventory, complete end-to-end traceability, compliance with PTI requirements and more.
