One of Regional IT’s specialties is the development of the Agricultural Logistics, Management and Distribution System (ALMADS), primarily for the Australian and American nut industries. ALMADS is a suite of modules that has been developed to efficiently manage food processing companies from a single site, single plant operation to multi-site, mulit-plant operations.
ALMADS has so far proven itself to be an integral part of the Almond, Pistachio and Rice industries managing Hulling, Shelling, Storage, Drying, Sorting & Packing processes providing tools to improve efficiency and traceability for the whole operation. ALMADS is currently being developed to suit the Walnut industry.
The biggest point of difference between ALMADS and most other process management systems is the way data is captured live in the processing plants and using barcoding technology.
Regional IT and ALMADS has also been certified by the State of California (CDFA), Department of Food and Agriculture for weighing and measuring devices which allows us to provide certified Weight Certificates. Many of our competitors do not have this certification.
In 2020 the ALMADS Hulling and Shelling System (ALMADS_HS) was redeveloped into a platform that was fully configurable and at the same time, flexible to cater for large variations in our clients requirements, with the following exciting changes:
- Created new web based terminal interfaces for plant operations
- Overhauled our reporting system run though a browser
- Provided access to processor reports online
- Created a brand new Grower Portal, with dashboard and reporting
- Created a brand new Handler Portal for Handler to view inventory
Our developers are currently working hard on our new ALMADS_Enterprise System which will follow the same steps as ALMADS_HS and provide our Processors and Huller / Sheller Processors with the same flexibility, ease of use and robust system that the ALMADS_HS clients are experiencing.
