Using GAO RFID Systems in the Fruit & Vegetable Canning, Pickling, & Drying Industry
Applying RFID technology to fruit and vegetable canning, pickling, and drying will ensure that you have the edge up on your competition. Our suite of RFID systems offer an integrated software solution to assist with product forecasting. This technology enables professionals in this sector who are looking to implement a solution such as this for their field personnel to replace manual, paper-based operations as well as solve asset tracking challenges.
Analyze Supply Chain Operations
Companies all across North America in the fruit and vegetable business lose millions of dollars because of inefficiencies in their supply chain management strategies. RFID tagging your assets as they undergo processing in your supply chain can assist you in identifying these inefficiencies. Adapting these technologies via our WIP Tracking System will ensure your production lines are performing up to the expected standard. Each item can be monitored for status and location. Lagre inventory counts can be conducted in minutes. All of this information that was previously time-consuming or impossible to do can now be provided to managers within minutes so that mission-critical decisions can be made to optimize the operations.
Tagging assets can protect yourself from possible theft and/or unauthorized removal of these assets from your property. Using our Asset Tracking System, RFID tags assigned to every asset can be read without no line of sight, does not require any type of human intervention, and is highly scalable depending on how many assets you are handling. This mean as assets pass through any doorway, its location and status can be tracked and monitored. This reduces potential losses and provides greater operational efficiency as you are able to locate anything within seconds, never having to slow down production.
Secure Your Premises
Not only can RFID Tags provide real-time accurate operational data monitoring and visibility but our Access Control System will work to secure your premises through various techniques. RFID Badges programmed with facility access levels can be given to all of your personnel. If an unauthorized user enters your property, instantly you will be notified. Furthermore your employees will no longer need to swipe their cards to gain entry. As long as the user is authorized and within proximity of the RFID Reader, they are granted access; this makes employees who move large amount of inventory from zone to zone more efficient as they are not required to stop their work in order to open doors. In addition, all access is recorded on the database so that managers and security personnel can review it at any time if the situation warrants an access review.
Our Asset Tracking System can also be used to tag heavy machinery, equipment, and other assets related to production. This is done to assist in keeping track of a maintenance schedule as well as to record any maintenance procedures performed and any replacement work completed. What is traditionally a human activity involving paperwork has now been transformed into something done automatically. This greatly simplifies the maintenance process as you serve to focus your attention elsewhere – on more important matters of managing your business.
