May 16, 2017, Redmond, WA – Dynamic Systems, Inc., a leader in real-time traceability systems announces an end-to-end traceability system for aquaponic, aeroponic and hydroponic growers using the SIMBA line of Barcode Tracking and Labeling Solutions.

SIMBA gives the processor the ability to record, label and track their products faster and more accurately while including numerous data points. SIMBA uses an automated process to track the produce through each growth stage. It runs on tablets or touch screen computers in the growing area, and collects multiple points of data including such details as produce type, nutrients added, start and end time at each stage, harvest date and time, and so on.

The software is able to collect lot or batch numbers and maintain full traceability from seed through growing and packaging.

SIMBA prints product labels at any pack line with all pertinent information (including a GS-1 code). The system can store unlimited label formats and switches from one to another with the press of a button. This feature makes it easy to provide each end-customer their own unique label format.

SIMBA is able to interface to scales and automatic label applicators for a fully automated process.

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.

ADVANCED 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.

POSITIVE RESULTS

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