Dairy.com, provider of web-based dairy industry supply chain systems, has released its milk manifest handling technology called Mobile Manifest.

Dairy.com, provider of web-based dairy industry supply chain systems, has released its milk manifest handling technology called Mobile Manifest.

This technology gives users real-time data acquisition and validation tools through a mobile web interface or Interactive Voice Response (IVR) technology. The method of deployment—the mobile phone—is significant as it marks the first electronic deployment of its kind.

“It’s faster, more accurate data collection at a fraction of the cost of the other manifest-handling technologies,” said Mitch Norby, chief technology officer of Dairy.com. “Many milk haulers already carry mobile phones, which makes it cost-effective to deploy across an entire fleet.”

Previously, the dairy industry attempted to use OCR (optical character recognition) technology, onboard computers in fleet trucks, and specialized software for hand-held computers. These attempts generally fell short due to start-up costs, difficult deployments, and ongoing maintenance costs.

With the release of Mobile Manifest, the dairy industry can cost-effectively increase efficiency and streamline operations for raw milk manifests. These are specific examples of what Mobile Manifest delivers to the dairy industry:

•Increases speed, accuracy—Data is instantly validated as it is gathered

•Provides flexibility—User interface is customizable; works with non-Dairy.com payroll systems

•Addresses industry scenarios—Handles commingled loads, third-party carriers, and drop yards

•Streamlines processes—Plant balancing and invoicing processes are drastically improved

•Minimizes initial investment—Uses existing mobile phone technology and infrastructure

•Pricing and availability
