Hess Brother’s Fruit Company Implements EnvioAg Handheld Scanner Functionality to Increase Inventory Control, Shipper Efficiency

Challenge:
Enable PTI compliance across a multiple-site organization.
Improve traceability and efficiency both before and after product is shipped.

Solution:
Upgrade current produce tracking system to EnvioAg, ArmgaSys’s grower-packer-shipper fresh produce, inventory control software. Enable tracking at multiple locations using secure access to a central Envio server. Implement handheld scanning technology.

Benefits:
Full PTI compliance. Improved shipper efficiency. Ability to track produce from multiple locations and manage all aspects of business from grower/supplier to customer. Do all of this with one software application—without having to hire dedicated in-house IT staff. EnvioAg helped Hess Brother’s Fruit Company make this happen.
