Customer Testimonial: “I like the RapidTrade system because it is very simple to work with and it is very user friendly. I’m delighted to get information that I did not get before, such as the progress of packing at any given time. This is much better than sending an e-mail as e-mails can be misunderstood. There is no risk of misunderstanding when using RapidTrade and it saves me time by providing me with accurate information about my shipments at all times.”
- Christa Valenzuela, Iceland Seafood GmbH.
Raw Material Reception Valka has worked closely with RSF, a service provider that connects 168 fish auctions in 30 locations to a single auction system. The result is that all purchase and traceability information from fish markets can be automatically imported into RapidTrade. This eliminates almost all data entry when receiving product from fish markets and makes the process easy and effective.
Easy selling – easy delivery Each customer can use their own product numbers in the system via the Product Alias function, a feature unique to RapidTrade. This simplifies the entire process as the customer does not have to establish numerous new product numbers in the supplier’s system.
Setting up and selecting adjustable pricing scheme for each customer is simple and easy with RapidTrade. The system incorporates automatic order splitting between departments or subsidiaries of seller’s choice. The system also maintains catching certificates and external lot or product codes throughout the process.
Full traceability RapidTrade offers full traceability from catching and receiving through intermediate storage to dispatch handling. The system stores traceability codes for each lot, making it easy for the seller to retrieve complete records at any given time. All changes are recorded and stored to prevent mishandling.
Tracking packaging material or products made of multiple raw materials is easy with this powerful fish trading solution. It also maintains full traceability when fish is processed or repackaged by a third party through simple functions like splitting pallets or deliveries.
Complete inventory control In addition to precise yield monitoring, the RapidTrade offers detailed information on inventory status at every warehouse. Exact inventory status is available on raw material, intermediate products and finished products either at own factories or third party locations.
Fast and efficient deliveries RapidTrade offers simple splitting of deliveries while maintaining custom status on pallets. Multiple pallets can be handled simultaneously by creating different loads when receiving pallets. The RapidTrade label printing system handles any type of bar codes and offers flexible, easily customizable labels.
RapidTrade was designed and developed in close cooperation with leading Icelandic fish processor HB Grandi hf.
