CAPS enhances container
tracking software abilities
Dec 6, 2012 9:16 AM
CAPS announces recent enhancements to its proprietary container tracking software, CAPS-TRAC, enabling users to capture, store, and report on newly added data points.
Besides tracking individual container IDs and contents, users now can track critical quality-related data throughout the supply chain including product temperature, weight, and safety seal numbers. The launch of these new tracking and data recording features are timely with the introduction of increasingly stringent government and industry food safety regulations such as the recently enacted Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).
Along with its full-service returnable shipping container rental programs, CAPS offers a stand-alone SaaS (software-as-a-service) reusable container management system. Since its initial development of CAPS-TRAC, the company has continued to leverage emerging technologies, ensuring they provide customers with a reliable, flexible asset tracking system including extensive reporting capabilities.
The CAPS-TRAC system resides in a secure cloud environment and is available from any Internet-accessible computer. Data can be captured via mobile scanning devices or RFID-enabled portals. The data is automatically transmitted, processed, and immediately accessible for review by all relevant supply chain partners.
CAPS is part of Brambles Limited, a provider of pallet and container pooling systems. For complete information, visit www.usecaps.com.
