APRIL 18, 2016, FOODEX, NEC, UK – RedBlack Software today announces that it has become the exclusive UK reseller of weighing, ingredient control and traceability solutions from North American specialist SG Systems.
Dallas, Texas-headquartered SG Systems is the creator of the SG Systems V5 suite of recipe control, product labelling and warehouse management system solutions. RedBlack Software is well-known in the UK food sector for its market-leading Cybake range of retail and wholesale bakery management solutions.
Jane Tyler, managing director of RedBlack Software, says: “We’ve always worked toward delivering the ultimate end-to-end system for our customers. SG Systems’ V5 solutions give us the last piece of this puzzle – complete control over the shop floor.”
Tyler, who also sits on the management committee of the British Society of Bakers, adds: “While SG Systems’ elegant applications interface perfectly with Cybake, they are best-of-breed in their own right. SG Systems’ software is not locked within expensive weigh-scale hardware. Its apps work on Windows-driven tablets, making them much less expensive than competing offerings and putting precision traceability within the reach of all bakers.”
The only hardware component of the SG Systems range is its SG15 Touch Screen, a NEMA4X (IP66) industrial tablet computer designed for harsh manufacturing environments. The revolutionary SG15 Touch Screen can be plugged into to any modern-day scales to transform them into a SG Systems V5 Formula Control Scale System.
The SG Systems V5 Formula Control Scale System ensures that ingredients are measured and traced accurately and consistently, without costly giveaway or out-of-specification batches.
SG Systems’ Mobile Warehouse Management System (Mobile WMS) works on any Windows tablet; it does not require proprietary hardware. The application manages inventory shipping, receiving and despatch as well as generating shipping labels and delivery notes.
Stuart Hunt, president of SG Systems says: “The management team at SG Systems has known the team at RedBlack for many years. During our search for a distributor for our V5 formula control and lot traceability solutions, they were the obvious choice.
“RedBlack has considerable experience in the craft bakery market in the UK, which is the prime area of focus for our product. We are delighted to begin this relationship and I wish them the very best of luck.”
SG Systems solutions are available from RedBlack Software’s Cybake division from today. They are sold separately from Cybake and can interface with practically any other ERP software.
RedBlack Software’s Cybake team is at Foodex on stand Q299. At this year’s show, RedBlack Software is also announcing the launch of Cybake Instore. See our separate press release: “RedBlack Software gives bakers and food-to-go operators the power of prediction with Cybake Instore” for the full story.
