Scale interface now available for SIMBA system

Dynamic Systems, a software developer specializing in barcode data collection, has announced a scale interface for SIMBA Food & Produce Tracking System.

SIMBA (Specialized Inventory Management with Barcode Accuracy) provides food processors the ability to process, label and track their products from field to customer. The SIMBA scale interface solves the problem of how to produce and track complete product labeling for fresh food on the fly, according to Dynamic Systems.

SIMBA is designed for companies who 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.

SIMBA now interfaces directly to any scale that has a digital output to a serial or USB port. The 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 the SIMBA software 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, according to Dynamic Systems.
