Original Press Release:

SIMBA Mobile Tablet Provides Improved Traceability for Food and Produce Growers, Packers, Shippers

Redmond - WA - Dynamic Systems, Inc., a Redmond, Washington leader in traceability Systems has announced an upgraded tablet for the SIMBA Line of Barcode Tracking Solutions. The mobility of the tablet provides food processors the ability to handle, label and track their products faster and more accurately from any location “field to customer”.

The Food Safety Modernization Act requires that fresh produce grower/packer/shippers be able to trace their product backwards and forwards in case of a recall.  While there are programs on the market that can provide this traceability, many of them do not provide any benefit to the user other than compliance with FSMA.

With SIMBA, the user will find they have greater control of their company – including the ability to monitor the pack lines in real-time, to know what is in inventory and to record shipments.  The SIMBA (Specialized Inventory Management with Barcode Accuracy) System solves the problem of how to produce and track complete product labeling for fresh food on the fly.

The SIMBA system runs on a mobile tablet or touch screen computer and allows the worker to print product labels from the field or at any pack line 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 stored in the SIMBA Office inventory, which provides data for inventory management, traceability and shipping.  The cartons may be accumulated onto a pallet and tracked with a single pallet identifier.

Logistics    At the time of shipping, the Van Loading feature of SIMBA 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.

End Results     Key results from implementing the SIMBA Traceability Software include real-time production reporting, fulfillment of traceability requirements, more accurate inventory, professional looking carton and pallet labels, and verified shipping.
