Vanco Farms Ltd is a PEI grower and producer of potatoes and tulips. This group of companies required a system to track potato and tulip orders in real-time, schedule orders on their packing lines, manage inventory and track both domestic and export shipments. 

Our Solution

Our PATH web application for packers enables Vanco Farms 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. The scouting module allows tracking and reporting of crop progress through regular sampling.

  • RECEIVING: The receiving module allows our users to receive and grade raw product into receiving storage, track its quality and location, and create lot mixes for packing.

  • 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 growers/packers.

  • 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.

  • 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.
