Redmond - WA â€“ May 19, 2015 / DSI has installed computers at Ocean Beauty resulting in improved labeling of seafood, traceability & reduced transportation costs
Online PR News – 21-May-2015 – Redmond, WA – Rugged Mobility The Psion Work about Pro3â„¢ Mobile Computer was chosen for the installation because the units are rated for harsh environments â€“ sealed against dust and sprayed water; multiple drops from 6 feet to concrete.
Ocean Beauty uses the Psion units with their SIMBA system and is designed for production, inventory control, labeling and shipping in a processing environment with fish and shrimp. 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. This integrated system gives the user complete traceability of the product from receiving to shipping. See Seafood Processing Systems.
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 Pro3â„¢ mobile computers are used to track location of cartons and to record shipments.
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.
