Mettler Toledo offers their OCTO DataCapture Software solution, which can be used on any of their dimensioning equipment. The OCTO software helps prevent damage claims by capturing a picture of each product or pallet. It also provides a sorting and tracking solution that creates full visibility in the warehouse. OCTO software can help assure that food and beverage products get to the correct location.
“We’re noticing some customers—that have load planning software—are using our data to populate into their load planning software to better mix their products when shipping on their own fleets,” says Mettler Toledo’s Bobel. Additionally, historical data can be used in the planning process in order to prevent bottlenecks from occurring.
Quantronix’s CubiScan also offers software integration tools called Qbit-DB. Qbit-DB software gathers, archives, and manages dimension, weight and product data obtained from the CubiScan equipment.
“We have a very good software team that has fine-tuned this data collection and transfer solution to make it as convenient as possible, and make it as cross-compatible to any software system as possible, right off the shelf, without having to do customization,” says Quantronix’s Neilson. “We have the ability to customize the interface to a customer’s software system and we have built some data integration to customers that are very customized for their needs.”
