One of the key challenges facing the industry is how to become more efficient in everything that we do to make us more competitive," said Karl Zimmer, CEO of Premium Peanut. "There is a critical need for modern, integrated systems in our industry that provide transparency, integrations, and real-time data for decision-making. We approached The Seam to develop a solution for Premium Peanut, and we and our seven buying points couldn't be more pleased with how our 2016 harvest is going."
The Seam's newest software is designed with foundational technology for providing commodity tracking capabilities from the shelling plant, through buying point storage and logistical movements, down to the producer farm location. This along with a vast feature-list of functionality, makes the web-based solution an attractive option for agri-businesses and their growers who increasingly look for ways to reduce costs and increase profits. With targeted functionality at is core, it aptly answers to efficiency, productivity, and accuracy in an industry where these principles are of the utmost concern.
