“One of those are through estimate entries, so if they’re forecasting what is going to be harvested for the day, they can preprint those case tags and take them out to the fields. That’s one option.
“We have customers come out and say, ‘That’s great, but we’ve got orders where they’re same-day orders or our customers have order changes or we’re moving fields because of quality conditions, so we really need a solution that’s going to allow us to print these case tags on the fly out in the field.’”
That’s where the mobile technology comes in, Hammack said.
“Basically, we’ve extended Famous out into the field, so if you have a mobile device, you can download your estimate for today and be able to simply print out case tags in the fields using that mobile device and a Bluetooth printer,” she said.
“Put all the Famous features you need for field case tag printing right in the palm of your hand.”
Business Intelligence also provides data reports in various formats that enable the user to spot trends and analyze data at a glance, Hammack said.
“They can slice and dice their data the way that they want to,” she said.
“So, versus running a static report, it’s going to allow them to run pie charts and graphs and comparison types of report on the fly, which is not something that you can do just out of a typical ERP package.
“It’s a nice addition for our customers to allow them to view their data any way they want to.”
Business Intelligence and Mobile Tag Printing may be available commercially at the end of next year, Hammack said.
