Fresh Item Management Tools Enable Food Safety!
Are you burying your fresh store team with manual data entry?
Past legacy control forms and spreadsheets cost your store time time and take them away from the floor and their customers. FIM tools increase control with less labor.
Are you using legacy checklists and old forms to manage inventory?
FIM saves time by using the latest GS1 and Auto-ID standards integrated into FIM tools used for inventory processes. These tedious forms have no place in a modern fresh category operation and are replaced with FIM real time tools that automatically report actions.
Manual Control Processes
Is your method of compliance still clipboards and supervisory oversight?
FIM enables real-time compliance with actionable information instead of after fact record keeping and reviews.
Manual Control Forms
Do you still employ processes with untraceable action?
FIM provides better ways to manage every day work like recipes and cuts to increase trace-back rigors and recall savings. FIM tools can reconnect-the-dots on fresh primals and ingredients at point-of-production (POP)
Manual Yield and Cut Tests
Are you still using Par Sheets?
