SIMBA Mobile Software Provides Traceability for Food & Seafood Processors

Redmond – WA January  25, 2013 / Dynamic Systems, Inc., a Redmond, Washington software developer specializing in barcode data collection, has announced the release of SIMBA Mobile 2013, which is designed to provide food processors the ability to process, label and track their products from “field or dock to customer”.

Increase production speed and traceability    The SIMBA (Specialized Inventory Management with Barcode Accuracy) system solves the problem of how to produce and track complete product labeling for fresh food or seafood on the fly.

SIMBA Mobile is designed for those companies that process in bulk (similar or same products into constant weight cartons) in the field or at a dock.  The system runs on a mobile barcode data collection terminal, and allows the worker to produce product labels with all pertinent information (including a GS-1 code), capturing product information (weight, size, color, grade) for that carton or bag.  The label information is then stored in the SIMBA inventory spreadsheet, which provides data for inventory management, traceability and shipping.  The cartons may be accumulated onto a pallet and tracked with a single pallet identifier.

Van Loading     At the time of shipping, the Van Loading feature of SIMBA Mobile tracks each carton or pallet onto a specific van.  A Bill of Lading is then produced automatically.  This feature not only saves time in the shipping process, it eliminates disputes with the customer regarding what was actually shipped.

Results     Key results from implementing the SIMBA software include increased production speed; the ability to get same day, accurate production reports; ability to fulfill traceability requirements; accurate inventory; professional looking carton and pallet labels; and expedited van loading.
