As consumers become increasingly vocal about having access to information about the fresh fruit and vegetables they consume, the power of influence has shifted toward them and away from producers, manufacturers, and retailers. Made wary by a string of food recalls over the past few years, consumers are now demanding access to more detailed food verification and source information. In response, regulatory agencies are requiring companies to capture increased amounts of data all along the fresh food supply chain.
Why Companies Select Us:
While still being flexible enough to adapt to those businesses that have not yet implemented the EPCIS 1.1 standards, our software uses elements including GLNs for location, GTINs for trade items, and SSCCs for shipping containers to track food and produce on a globally accepted platform.
Our solution offers full-featured integration that can capture the origin of data, monitor all existing and future inputs, validate data and attributes, and import lab tests to better identify supply chain processes.
Our solution was built to the exacting specification put forth by GS1 Global, which enforces the use of GS1 encodings. But it has the ability to support other encodings to meet global needs for precise data on transportation location and timing.
Our solutions handle a wide range of out-of-the-box and customized operations, including API integrations that open a public web services. These integrations give you the flexibility to share supply chain data with ERP and WMS systems in a way that fits within your network topology, and that can seamlessly accommodate vertical or horizontal expansions.
Our easy-to-use solution enables you to generate serial numbers either randomly or sequentially, using both numeric and alphanumeric values. These solutions also give you the ability to import serial numbers.
Our solutions improve data capture performance and data recall. By allowing for autocomplete, prefilled data selections, and custom data configurations, the solutions help reduce the amount of time spent writing, copying, and sorting through paper records. By traveling with your users and transmitting events at the most critical points in the process, our mobile solutions reduce the lag between the actual and reported event times.
Why Our Solutions Matter:
Frequentz’s solutions provide you with traceability, the ability to track and analyze historical data, and the capacity to handle rapid operational queries from supply partners. This functionality reduces repetitive data gathering and provides accurate records and reporting on such things as specific crop information, irrigation, and even soil testing. Our solutions can help identify potential sources of contamination or assist in monitoring cold-chain or temperature-controlled logistics, and can be integrated with lab-testing data. We even offer testing through one of our partners.
Our track-and-trace solutions naturally lead to better, faster responses to recall events. By being able to use product codes to quickly query and trace units, and by knowing who received recalled goods, our solutions help manufacturers significantly reduce their recall costs—and minimize any potential impact on growers such recalls can have.
Frequentz solutions track fruit from harvest, through shipping, to broker – including generating serial numbers for immediate PTI compliance. They trace the origin of products from multiple suppliers. They are scalable and customizable. And they can be used in specific parts of a supply chain, or throughout an entire enterprise—regardless of size or volume. Our cost-effective solutions are designed to adhere to GS1 reporting standards and to the most advanced Product Master Data setup.
The goal of safe food and product is being realized through the use of Big Data—by being able to capture as much information as possible about perishable products as they move through the supply chain. This same Big Data can also help companies limit the exposure of foodborne illnesses and contamination, as well as to gain predictive insights into inventory demands.
