Easy Produce Traceability With Smartphones And QR Codes

Produce Inventory Management And Traceability With Smartphones And QR Code Scanning

Produce inventory and traceability is a requirement for many food distribution and processing businesses. QR Inventory will help you track and trace food items efficiently by using smartphones for qr code / barcode scanning and data collection. Keep track of food suppliers, production process, and distribution, and easily trace product and its ingredients back to the origin through all intermediate steps. Define what do you need to track, record and report via a web dashboard.

Produce Inventory Management On Site With Barcode Scanning

Your inventory management and traceability program starts as you receive produce, food items and raw ingredients from the supplier or from the field into the storage location. Label containers with the pre-printed QR code label, scan QR code on the label and enter all batch information into the system in the field, on a smartphone or tablet.
You define what data you want to record and keep track of. As a rule, you will want to record a supplier, or a field where produce was picked if you are a grower, harvest date, and receiving date. You may record any additional information which is important for your business and workflow.

Track Production Process In Real Time With Mobile Devices

No matter what your business process is, QR Inventory will allow you to track produce through the entire production cycle, from picking or receiving produce to shipping of the final product to the customer. Create custom transactions for tracking process steps: picking, packing, moving to the storage location, shipping to a customer, etc. Record transition of a product batch to the next step on site using regular smartphones or tablets for barcode / QR code scanning and data recording. Create custom mobile forms to enter all information associated with each production step: date, shift, conditions, and anything else you need to keep track of.

Use Mobile Forms For Quality Control And Inspections

Create custom mobile forms to fill out on site for quality control and inspections. Link forms to your workflow, so that your employees know what form(s) need to be filled out on each step. Include clarifications, and optionally image(s) to the form to explain what needs to be checked and how, and avoid emplyee errors.
Field employees will be able to see the current status of the produce batch, which forms need to be filled out at this step, and fill them out on a smartphone. If necessary, administrator can pre-fill part of the form online before pushing it to the mobile devices.
Administrator can review filled out forms online, and edit if necessary (or fill out "office only" part). If something is not done right or missing, administrator can mark the form incomplete and push to the mobile devices for completetion.
Completed forms are stored in the centralized cloud database, and can be accessed any time when needed. Administrator can create pdf report based on the completed form, store it off site and e-mail to selected addresses.

Mobile Data Access

Make sure that the right product batches are used for the next process step (e.g. the one that was received earlier, or the batch from a specific supplier) by giving your employees a tool to easily access batch information. Using QR Inventory mobile application your employees can access all data on a product batch by scanning QR code or barcode label. No need to use notes that can be easily misplaced or lost.

Track Ingredients Going Into The Final Product

If your final food product consists of the multiple ingredients, track lot number (batch number) of each ingredient that goes into the intermediate or final product. Use a smartphone to scan in batch numbers, avoid errors associated with the manual entry.

Produce Traceability

QR Inventory allows you to restore an entire production trail for any item. This includes all data recorded on each production step, as well as lot numbers of all ingredients and associated data for each lot number, if applicable. If there is a problem with any product batch, you can quickly find all other products from the same batch. Find list of customers to whom affected batch was shipped and when, if some items are still in storage and where exactly, or final products in which this batch was used. If you are a food processor or manufacture, use production trail to pinpoint a problem, whether it is related to the ingredient or to the production process, and quickly find other products that may be affected.
