Family-owned business competes with the top of the industry food chain
Due to federal mandates, a family-owned frozen foods company—we’ll call them Fam Foods—needed to abandon their old-school method of pen-and-paper documentation in favor of a system that would allow for tracking and tracing ingredients. Efficiencies were a priority, so finding equipment that could carry out multiple functions was key, too.
Bar Code Direct partnered with Just Food, a Microsoft Dynamics-based Enterprise Resource Planning system, and linked it with a suite of handheld data collection devices that fit Fam Foods’ specific needs. Our team researched, tested, and validated all devices, and worked closely with Just Food to ensure a seamless on-boarding process. The 360° infrastructure allows Fam Foods to comply with federal regulations and compete with more sophisticated manufacturers within the food industry.
WHY THE PARTNERSHIP WORKED:
“Fam Foods initiated a true partnership with Barcode Direct, providing both short- and long-term goals and ensuring Barcode Direct understood the full scope of the project.”
