Do Business Better with PICS – Produce Inventory Control System Software by WaudWare
Looking for an efficient all-in-one software package to manage your fresh produce business? You’re in the right place. Produce Inventory Control System (PICS) software is a robust and reliable software package designed specifically for the energetic fresh produce industry. Add to that, outstanding 24/7 customer support and you’ll be enjoying improvements to your operation in no time. Here are the updates we made to PICS software during November:
- Added # of logins field to the security screen. This allows you to see how many times the user has logged into PICS.
- Significantly improved the speed of printing via PICSVFP from PICS. Previously PICSVFP opened the entire database when loading (276 tables). Now it only opens the tables needed for the report (between 7 and 20 depending on which report) so we should see between 13 – 40 times faster loading speed.
- Enhanced the Labour Auto-Post error messages in the Production Posting screen. If the Production/Default Production Employee Key is either not filled, or filled with something which is invalid PICS will tell you how to fix it.
In a nutshell, PICS software handles buying, selling and effectively tracking, tracing, inventorying, and reporting on fresh (perishable) produce. There’s nothing else like it on the market!
