Our first year using Farmsoft is the first year we can say that each shipment left our loading docks loaded with the correct products and amounts.
One of the biggest unrealized benefits we saw was keeping the field crew harvesting the proper amount of each variety.
In years past, once one variety was harvested, someone would have to physically walk through the coolers counting the product and inventory manually. Then we would begin the time consuming process of counting how much of each product was needed, what was surplus, and so on.
We moved from a pen-and-paper system to the Farmsoft system. The difference was like night and day. We knew exactly the inventory we had, what we needed to pack to fulfill incoming orders, and what inventory was on hand but not sold.
Our labels, bill of lading, export documents, and invoices are generated automatically saving time for the production, shipping and office teams.
Inventory management and rotation is now much more easier, and I reckon there is probably less waste slipping through the cracks. Our quality control is now more consistent than the old spreadsheet method, and our QC manager can see instantly if QC isn't being performed by the right people at the right time. This has probably helped with quality of products consistency.
I think the better inventory control is a serious benefit. rotation and FIFO, possibly less waste. Probably lots of savings of time for invoice, bill of lading, configuring labels for each run, export docs etc. I get less phone calls now about customer orders and pack progress since the team now use dash reports.
We can now perform recalls using lots of recall info such as supplier, or delivery date, or customer order etc. Audits are now very fast, and our auditors commented that are traceability is now "excellent". The pack shed team says inventory management is easier now with less mistakes and better visibility of what product is waiting to be packed, packed and ready to be built into an order, and also shipped.Our shed manager says its faster an more accurate to plan orders since she can now see product on order, product in the cool stores, and balance that still needs packing. orders are assigned to batches and packing lines, with a live view of progress real time. The office says they save time with all the paperwork being generated by the dispatch team automatically instead of them having to make paper for each load.
We now pack to match our orders more accurately than before. I can now assign trucks to multiple orders, and print the BOL and invoice rapidly - all automatic now. Saves a heap of time telling admin what is shipping and waiting for invoices and BOL to be produced. I reckon we save about 1 hour a day since we dont have to mess around with invoices and BOL, and the stocktake is kind of already done at all times.
orders now filled more accurate and each load sent on time, not sure how to quantify reduced errors or not having annoyed calls from customers when a truck is late.
I can now keep an eye on the entire pack & ship operation from anywhere, and now enter orders on the go.
We were dumping two to three pallets (300 crate) a week before implementation. Now its down to almost 0 crate. our inventory is now accountable and tracked at all times. Brought down waste levels considerably, stopped screw ups during order picking and shipping process. We had previously tried to improve our processes many times using random checks, regular stock takes etc, didn't have the desired outcome. this new computer system has added positively to the line; also happier customers because they get exactly what they ordered. Probably made offices job easier with invoice and shipping documents being made and printed or emailed automatically. We also saw an accuracy increase for orders, since shippers are being told by farmsoft which pallets must go.
Easy to use, takes care of entire packing operations.
Traceability and reporting has been excellent. Third party auditors have been more than impressed with the traceability.
farmsoft support, training, and requests for customization to farmsoft to fit our company has always been prompt and effective in response.
Department of Financial & Management Engineering An important benefit of growing your growers from within is the opportunity to indoctrinate them into your company culture at the same time they're learning good plant culture. With both employee and employer loyalty seemingly hitting bottom barrel these days, internal training and promotion programs could be a great way to attract and keep valuable employees long-term in a competitive grower market. Keeping great employees, and paying them more as they progress, is always less costly than repeatedly hiring anew.
From January 1, 2006 traceability will cease to be an added-value element in the agricultural industry and will become obligatory because of the introduction of the new EU legislation,” explains Pedro de la Peña, the technical manager of E-FRUITRACE at Agromare in Spain. All of the actors involved in the agri-food sector therefore need comprehensive and compatible solutions to allow them to track produce.”
Since refining is a continuous process, a constant input of crude palm oil is required. As we have seen, the crude palm oil was supplied from different origins. So, when we speak about traceability in the palm oil supply chain, it means we can identify all the palm oil mills that could have been supplying the oil in your product. Knowing that most of the mill's supply base is located within a radius of 50 kilometres, traceability provides you with a list of potential mills of origin. Any verification of sustainable practices on the oil supplied by a certain mill, should happen in this area.
