Minnepolis, MN (PRWEB) June 22, 2012
Barcoding expert Symbology, Inc. has partnered with software developer Toolworx Information Products, Inc. to provide an on-demand PTI (Produce Traceability Initiative) barcode label solution as an addition to their PTI product line.
The Produce Traceability Initiative (PTI) is an effort to improve produce traceability throughout the supply chain. The Initiative's sponsors include United Fresh Produce Association (United Fresh), Canadian Produce Marketing Association (CPMA) and Produce Marketing Association (PMA) in cooperation with GS1 US. The recommendation is for a standardized approach for electronic traceability at the case-level in 2012.
A basic “PTI Launch Kit” will be available for those who want a simple way to comply with PTI label guidelines. Where applicable, custom solutions will be available for more complex operations. This system’s biggest benefits are that it does not require a PC, handheld terminal, or internet access to print labels. Printers are internally programmed to run standalone while printing barcode labels (Case and Hybrid Pallet). Just plug the printer into a power source and it’s ready to print PTI compliant labels. The system is rugged and easily deployed in various locations such as office, packing sheds, or the field.
Symbology brings over 30 years of barcode experience and the knowledge to help clients understand requirements and select the best Produce Traceability solution to fit their size, procedures and product. “We see this as a great addition to our label product line to be used in conjunction with, or as an alternative to our pre-printed PTI label products. The solution recommended will be custom fit to each client.” states John Gorowsky; Symbology’s Vice President, Sales & Marketing.
ToolWorx is a systems integrator specializing in automated data collection applications for lot/part traceability and error proofing. Continuously updating their products as technology evolves; they provide capabilities in lot tracking, warehouse control systems and inspection. “Our Smart-PTI Suite™ product is a great fit with Symbology’s label offerings, providing a simple labeling system to be used either alone or with their other PTI products. The experience of Symbology, Inc.’s staff allows them to efficiently put together a system for each PTI client.”
“Feedback thus far has been great.” according to Gorowsky. “We are really pleased about this new partnership!”
