BellHawk Systems' Barcode Inventory Tracking Service (BITS) is a low-cost, easy-to-use, Cloud-based subscription service that uses barcode scanning and mobile computing technology to perform materials tracking and traceability.
This makes BITS an ideal solution for smaller food processors and manufacturers who have to meet FDA, USDA, and HAACP materials traceability requirements, including the ability to rapid recall products in case of contaminated ingredients or defective products.
Capabilities of BITS include:
BITS uses barcode scanning to replace the use of paper forms and manual keyboard data entry for tracking inventory and keeping materials traceability records. This can:
Data collection can be performed by material handlers and production workers or their supervisors using wireless mobile computers or PDAs, equipped with integral barcode scanners, as well as with fixed station PCs equipped with barcode scanners or Android tablets equipped with cordless Bluetooth scanners.
The BITS on-line service costs a few hundred dollars a month to use. As a result, BITS can enable smaller food processing organizations to afford to comply with customer requirements that they maintain electronic materials traceability records for rapid recall.
