Hammond Produce - Nottingham
Hammond Produce, based in Nottingham, farms over 3,500 acres across 3 counties and produces over 50,000 tonnes of fresh vegetables each year. They grow, pack, prepare and deliver a wide range of fresh produce in an even wider range of sizes, cuts and shapes to retailers and supermarkets throughout the UK.
We developed a number of bespoke Android apps and integrated web management apps for Transport Management, Production Line Management & Quality Control
Hammond Produce required a bespoke Android app to be installed on tablets which their drivers and production line operatives could use to manage the various stages of the production line and delivery to supermarkets.
The questions that appear on the Android apps should be managed through a secure, bespoke web app and all data, photos and signatures captured on the Android apps should appear in a management reports section on a secure web app. The solution we developed provided the following features:
- A secure web app for management to set up production runs, questions and view reports captured on the Android app
- A secure customer portal web app where customers can view production line reports
- Provide a simple "one click" process on the Android app for operatives to answer questions according to business logic as defined by management on the web app
- Take photos
- Capture signatures
Hammond Produce operatives are happy using the Android app solutions as they are very user-friendly and much less hassle than their previous paper-based procedures. Management and customers are happy because of the time efficiency using these apps has created.
These apps developed by App Developer for Android mark a new turn towards technology for an industry that’s been slow to adapt until now. With no suitable ‘off the shelf’ solution available below costly, enterprise level software, we were involved in the development process from the start, getting the right solution that suited our operations and our customers.
