The state of cold store management can make or break the bottom line in the poultry processing industry. Accurate inventory and warehouse management software is crucial to control stock age and manage shelf life. As a part of the Innova food processing software suite, Marel has put together an efficient solution for precisely these purposes. Innova’s Cold Store Management System offers full traceability and up-to-the-minute data on every single item in storage, on hold or in stock.
Innova 28° Cooler Inventory Monitoring and Control
“We saw that some of our customers needed to get better control over their inventory and weigh price labeling of products on hold in their 28°F coolers,” explains Louie Bardic, Innova Software Solutions Manager. “In response, we put together a cold store management solution that automates and improves cooler inventory control and facilitates the seamless flow of products to different destinations.”
Track, replenish and manage cooler inventory
The Innova 28° Cold Store Management System is designed to track, replenish and manage cooler inventory with efficiency and ease. It increases inventory accuracy, enables quick transfers and helps locate product faster. It is easy to reserve products for sales and production orders and pick FIFO products efficiently. An integrated alarming and monitoring function helps keep loading accurate and on track.
Supports multiple tracking technologies
“Innova’s 28° cooler inventory management system supports different tracking technologies, like bar coding and RFID and tracks cartons, totes, racks, combos and pallets,” explains Hörður Ari Gunnarsson, Innova System Consultant. “The system comes with a set of reports and dashboards as well as an overhead scoreboard function that tracks and broadcasts movements, usage, demands and other performance KPI’s to operators on the floor. “
Affordable, expandable and easy to use
“After installing the 28° Cold Store Management System we’ve seen how reliable and efficient it is,” says Bardic, “We can integrate it with not only ERP, MRP and accounting systems but also third party equipment and software. We’ve had cases where that was one of the key benefits as the customer did not have to replace any equipment or install more software. It could all be integrated with Innova.”
