Houser’s Produce Farm, Inc. is a family owned produce farm whose produce is home grown in Sharpsburg, MD and hand-picked and packed to ensure the best quality. They grow a variety of produce, including Sweet Corn, Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Bell Peppers, Potatoes, Cantaloupes and Watermelons and Pumpkins.
When Houser’s Produce Farm came to Dynamic Systems they were looking for an Affordable Traceability System that would help them comply with the new PTI (Produce Tracking Initiative) requirements and be affordable.
Today they are using SIMBA Mobile to collect their fresh product details by case and to produce PTI compliant case labels. SIMBA Mobile collects product details (grade, size, lot number, case weight, etc.) from a drop-down menu on a mobile handheld barcode terminal. The software then records these details onto an Excel spreadsheet from which Houser’s Farm can produce a variety of reports.
Because of its affordability, SIMBA Mobile has allowed a small, independent grower to company with the pending government regulations and to collect more detailed information about their products, helping them maintain quality and improve customer service.
