Improved efficiency and traceability with TrackWell Product Manager

Many modern fishing companies are meeting higher standards on traceability and sustainability, with more detailed registration of catch and onboard production. To minimize the effort and improve efficiency, TrackWell has launched Product Manager, a system which links to the Electronic logbook onboard and eliminates multiple entries of data. The Product Manager keeps track of all production registration onboard where the data is linked to fishing grounds and catch activity. The system also maintains information on production value, packaging usage, utilization factors and quality inspections. Positive feedback from captains The Electronic Logbook and  Product Manager have recently been installed onboard five factory vessels owned by the Canadian company Ocean Choice International. The registrations from the vessels are collected to a database on a central server, enabling the company management to monitor the latest information on the catch and production, along with tracks and position of the vessels. Once the data has been collected to the onshore server, it is much easier to control the flow of the data to other information systems of the company.

New product launced at Seafood Processing Europe 2011

As an addition to the electronic logbook, TrackWell now offers the Product Manager to register the products, from which the system calculates the round fish weights for each species, based on utilization constants. The system also maintains information on production value, packaging usage, quality inspections and other parameters such as fuel consumption. All data from the vessels is collected to a database on a central server which is hosted in a data centre. The seafood companies can access their own data via access controlled web interface, enabling them to monitor the latest information on the catch and production, along with tracks and position of the vessels. Once the data has been collected to the onshore server, it is much easier to control the access of the data to external systems. The seafood companies can save effort and time to use an automatic procedure to forward the data to other organizations, such as sales network, fish auction markets and traceability systems. Fisheries are facing an increasing demand from their buyers for information about traceability, sustainability and certification. Too meet that, TrackWell Product Manger makes it easier for seafood companies to reorganize the handling of information of catch and production. Some seafood companies have started to use the full featured Product Manager from TrackWell to collect data from the vessels and automatically transfer the information to the company’s ERP system. This reduces errors and saves labour by minimizing double entry of data. It also allows the company managers to allocate the product stock before it has been landed. TrackWell will demonstrate the Product Manager at the Seafood Processing Europe in Brussels...
