Prophet's ProPack software is specifically tailored to provide an economical, low cost of ownership solution to the grower / packer / shipper sector of the produce industry.
Whilst being a finance-centric system, ProPack is fully integrated, containing functionality to cover all facets of the US domestic industry: inventory management, sales, shipping, and grower settlement accounting. There is traceability throughout the system, with PTI standards fully catered for, and PTI compliant tagging facilities currently in use with regional and national retailers.
The system works in real time, providing users with the up to date information needed to manage their activities effectively and profitably. Functions such as on-the-dock shipping, product locating, inventory transfers, and product searches can also be deployed to RF handheld devices to ensure that front line users have the tools that they need.
ProPack is written in leading edge technologies - VB.net, running over a Microsoft SQL database, allowing open connectivity to applications and devices that are in use within your organization. The software is fully configurable, and can be customized to meet your specific business needs.
