FreshPlaza Artikel - "Wir bringen die Digitalisierung in den Obst- & Gemüse-Sektor!"
Computergesteuerte Reifekammern haben schon längst Einzug in den schnelllebigen Frucht-Reife-Sektor gefunden, während die dazugehörige Bestell-, Transport- und Reifeplanung oder das Qualitätsmanagement der Früchte oft noch manuell, also per Excel-Liste und physischem Reifetagebuch erfolgt.
In Zusammenarbeit mit zahlreichen Experten aus dem Frucht-Import und Reife-Geschäft konnte activeIT eine Software entwickeln, die den Prozess von reifenden Früchten abbildet und somit die Bestell- Transport- und Reifeplanung in einem übersichtlichen Programm zusammenführt.
„Wir lernen ständig dazu", so Marko Klein, der Geschäftsführer von activeIT. „Durch die Implementierung bei S.H. Pratts in Großbritannien und die enge Zusammenarbeit mit unseren Kunden haben wir viele neue Erkenntnisse sammeln und in unser System integrieren können. Unsere anspruchsvollen Auftraggeber sind zugleich Indikator sowie Motivator um unser System stetig mit neuen Funktionen zu erweitern und diese dann zukünftigen Abnehmern anbieten zu können“.
Erstes Projekt in den USA steht an
Die Internationalisierung ist in vollem Gange. "Während wir aktuell noch Großprojekte im Europaraum abwickeln, wird 2020 das erste Projekt in den USA gestartet. Das zeigt, der Bedarf an solchen Lösungen steigt. Nicht zuletzt, weil die Nachfrage an Bananen, Avocados, Mangos und weiteren tropischen Früchten stärker wird und die Anbieter mit ihren aktuellen Lösungen an Ihre Grenzen stoßen. Die Digitalisierung hält Einzug." (...)
Unser neuer Ansprechpartner Gabriel Marek (Marketing & Sales) war von 22. - 24. Oktober 2019 auf der Fruit Attraction in Madrid vor Ort um intensive Gespräche zum Thema Digitalisierung in Frucht-Reife- und Produktionsprozessen mit allen Interessierten zu führen.
Pakstation Venlo / Weyers joins forces with activeIT to implement bespoke production software traceNET-Production & LiveApp
Pakstation Venlo / Weyers, operator of one of the largest packing stations for fruit and vegetables in Venlo (Holland), has decided to move into the future with the production control software traceNET-Production & LiveApp from activeIT in Austria, which has been specially developed for fruit and vegetables packing lines.
traceNET-Production has been specially developed for fruit and vegetable companies to ensure the highest possible efficiency on the production lines and the packing station and to avoid sources of error. An essential aspect here is the central administration and control of all systems and machines and a direct employee time recording at the line, scales or at terminals in the packing station.
"With our LiveApp, the customer also has the opportunity to obtain a perfect overview of all processes and procedures in the company. All current processing operations are displayed in real time according to the processing progress. Additionally to that, the live app provides a real-time overview of orders, goods receipts, loadings and employees," says Marko Klein, Managing Director of activeIT.
Erik van Maren, Director Pakstation Venlo B.V.:
"traceNET-Production & LiveApp offers our company great possibilities to increase efficiency and provides our management with central live key figures, which can be accessed anytime and anywhere. We decided to partner with activeIT because traceNET-Production & LiveApp was developed in a very practical way and can be extended by our additional requirements.
activeIT has asked us relevant questions that help us to improve our current operations.
Marko Klein, managing director of activeIT, is enthusiastic about the project:
"We are very pleased to be able to win Pakstation Venlo / Weyers as a customer and are looking forward to further international projects".

S.H. Pratt Group, operator of the largest single ripening centre in Europe, based in Luton (United Kingdom), has confirmed plans to partner with Austrian Software company activeIT utilising their unique and innovative Banana planning and ripening Software ‘FIPS’.
The ‘FIPS’ system was specifically designed with Bananas in mind, tackling the complexity of processes carried out such as, procuring, planning (long term and short term) and ripening.
"The semi-automated transport and ripening planning, based on LIVE data brings time and cost savings; with the added advantage of considerably less stress to the person-independently planning and continuous ripening cycles," says Robert Schwaiger of activeIT.
"During the first meeting, it quickly became clear for interested parties, that FIPS is a tailor-made, user-friendly solution for ripening facilities that had not existed before. The software was developed by ripening professionals for ripening professionals," Schwaiger continues.
Shahida Mohamed, Financial Director SH Pratt Group explained:
“ ‘FIPS’ offers our business great features to increase efficiency, offer our customers centralised key data accessible anywhere at any time.
We made the decision to partner with activeIT as their system has been developed by ripening professionals; which is a unique development within the industry alone. ‘FIPS’ professionals understood our requirements and asked relevant exploratory questions aiding us to improve our current operational processes.”
Marko Klein, managing director of activeIT, is also enthusiastic about the project:
“We are very pleased to be able to win the SH Pratt Group as a customer and are convinced our current customers as well as future interested parties will benefit from this project.”
