MagTech Systems, a US provider of technology integration and process improvement solutions for the food processing and agribusiness industries, has announced the general release of its Grower Receiving System (GRS).

The software is a Web-enabled solution that can measure and track accurate weight and grading data for incoming raw products, thereby eliminating excess time in the receiving process and inaccuracies in the financial management of the yield.

The GRS solution is comprised of software and hardware, integrated to deliver a set of capabilities for receiving, processing and grading of raw materials. MagTech said that the GRS is the only solution that offers full integration with truck, debris and lab scales, along with real-time transmission of processing statistics via handheld wireless bar code scanners and radio frequency tags used for immediate identification of load origin, weight and status information.

MagTech’s GRS uses latest technology to enable remote access to critical processing information via a compliant Internet browser. Remote field personnel can use a rugged, wireless PDA with a built-in bar code scanner to communicate in real time with the system. Exception alerting, via a notification framework, provides immediate proactive messaging of problems or threshold encroachment scenarios to email, instant messaging or cellular devices.
