Gerrit Visser & Sons is a PEI grower and producer of seed and table potatoes. This operation required a system to track their raw product inventory and customer orders, schedule orders on their packing lines, manage finished product and packaging inventory, and track both domestic and export shipments. 

Our Solution

Our PATH web application for packers enables our client to manage and track many aspects of their operation, including:

  • PRODUCTION: Our production solution maintains field and agronomy records while simultaneously tracking raw product and storage inventory. 

  • CUSTOMER ORDERS: We have simplified the recording of customer orders by allowing data entry of orders to be packed and/or shipped, updating packaging inventory, and generating order and purchase documentation.

  • PACKAGING: By tracking packaging inventory throughout the system, monitoring quantity-on-hand, and packaging reserved by orders, our solution ensures accurate inventory management.

  • PACKING: Our packing solution enables the user to schedule order items onto packing lines, track its quantity and quality in real-time, produce CFIA-required unit and pallet labels, and monitor finished product inventory. Our software fully supports C-PIQ requirements for certified potato packers.

  • SETTLEMENTS & INVOICING: Invoicing is easy with PATH - our software automatically tracks various costs, rates and prices and generates invoices and/or exports transactions to external accounting software. Our client also uses our Grower Settlement module, used to generate payments to growers for raw product.

  • SHIPPING: The shipping module allows scheduling of orders onto loads, generating all required shipping documentation, including cross-border documentation, and allows tracking of shipments.

  • MANAGEMENT & REPORTING: Administrators and managers are able to set up permissions, define system settings and generate reports. Users are able to subscribe to various system generated alerts.
