Redmond, WA - Dynamic Systems, Inc., a Redmond, Washington software developer specializing in barcode data collection, has installed mobile computers with Ocean Beauty Seafoods, resulting in improved traceability and reduced transportation costs.
The Psion Work about Pro3(TM) Mobile Computer was chosen for the installation because the units are rated for harsh environments - sealed against dust and sprayed water; multiple drops from 6 feet to concrete.
Ocean Beauty uses the Psion units with their SIMBA system, which is designed for production, inventory control and shipping in a food processing environment. SIMBA allows a production line worker to change content of product labels with a fingertip on the computer touch screen, capturing variable information including weight, size, color, grade, as well as any other information required by the customer (country of origin, dates, etc.), and with a barcode identifier for that tote or carton. The label information is stored in the SIMBA inventory system, which then provides production and inventory reports. The system has features for re-boxing, palletizing and shipping, including production of the bill of lading. This integrated system gives the user complete traceability of the product from receiving to shipping. See Seafood Processing Software
Additional Benefits Of SIMBA
Features include the ability to track inventory (boxes, totes, pallets) to a specific location within the warehouse, cooler or freezer. For those customers who use SIMBA at multiple locations, the Product Tables that hold information for the labels can now be modified at one location and broadcasted to all other locations simultaneously. And the ability to create an Electronic Bill of Lading has been added. The Psion Work about Pro3(TM) mobile computers are used to track location of cartons and to record shipments.
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.
