Partnership to focus on traceability and logistics in feed industry.
May 21, 2018
Prairie Systems and DP TechLink announced that they have entered into a strategic partnership that includes Prairie Systems’ Feed Allocation System (FAS) and Smart Order cloud-based software packages and DP TechLink’s FeedTrackur cloud-based logistics system.
“As new regulations and demands continue to present new challenges for producers and feed manufacturers, managing their businesses on paper and through outdated processes and systems is no longer efficient enough,” Prairie Systems director of sales Brandon Lowder said.
The new strategic partnership will offer protein producers and nutrition providers the tools necessary to get in front of new regulations and demands. Now, the two companies can work more closely to exchange feed order information, provide the feed manufacturing and delivery process with improved visibility and help ensure that the right feed is delivered to the right bin, according to the announcement.
“With the enactment of the Food Safety Modernization Act, it is critical for feed mills, integrators and third-party haulers to be able to easily and effectively track feed from the feed mill to the bin,” DP Tech Link chief executive officer Mike Shindelar explained.
DP TechLink and Prairie Systems customers can now run both systems cohesively to increase productivity, enhance traceability and develop scalable and sustainable business practices through technology, the companies said.
Prairie Systems’ FAS is built on a foundation of production experience. The software helps execute nutritional goals while providing other business benefits, including inventory management, animal health and ingredient forecasting. Smart Order is a feed manufacturer order management system that offers a mobile ordering app and powerful production process insights.
DP TechLink’s FeedTrackur is a hardware and software application that uses wireless and tablet technologies to manage feed orders from the mill to the bin while capturing and displaying critical real-time data. FeedTrackur keeps everyone informed on orders, deliveries and logistics to help make the entire process more efficient and accurate.
