Full Automated Trace From Catch to Customer
Streamlining People & Data
Accuracy, efficiency and security for seafood operations
CatchManager II is the seafood receiving component of Parity’s materials management family of products—ParityFactory. CatchManager II integrates seamlessly with ParityFactory Software providing automatic tracing and materials management from the fishing grounds to the customer.
CatchManager II simplifies fish purchasing and settlements—bringing accuracy, efficiency and security to the largest use of cash for most seafood operations. The platform is seafood specific, enabled for multi-site usage, and works in real time even with spotty or no internet.
A key value of the software is Vessel Management. CatchManager II manages Vessel Settlements, Holdbacks, and Supply Sales to fishing vessels, while producing buying analytics.
For our Northwest customers, CatchManager II’s integration with eLandings and automated compliance reporting dramatically reduce errors and entry efforts.
Information at the right time, to the right people
Business intelligence capabilities are central to CatchManager II. The system generates customizable business analysis views based on standardized data that has been compiled across all enterprise sites. Integration across modules supports an even richer environment where data can be modeled to drive key business decisions across the company.
Familiar Data Analysis Tools
All system components include familiar data analysis tools, such as Excel, for fast and easy inquiries. Users can refine and design their own list views to meet job specific reporting needs. Pivotable lists, data filtering, searching and sorting are all intuitive, self-service features for creating these specialized views.
Instant Printed Reports and Data Export
Once users have shaped their data as needed, printed reports are easily generated from any system module. The grid’s contents (in the same layout as it appears on screen) can be exported to all popular formats, including RTF, PDF, XLSX, XLS, CSV.
eLandings Integration manages the process of importing tickets from the Alaska Department of Fish and Game’s eLandings system. Tickets are imported directly into CatchManager II where pricing and tax rules can be applied according to preconfigured settings. From there, users have an opportunity to review all data prior to posting.
CatchManager II provides complete flexibility in meeting the reporting requirements of all government agencies. Reporting areas can be related to, or completely separate from, taxing districts. The system also support reporting requirements that may encompass different geographical breakdowns.
Unlimited browsing and search features make it easy to find what you need. Convenient hyperlinks throughout the system provide instant access to key data and configuration areas.
Raw Materials Purchasing
Fish ticket processing is easy for all species, seasons, plants, fleets and buying stations.
Policies and Reporting
Centralized Configuration Management
CatchManager II supports central control of system configurations. This “command and control” model makes it possible to plan, configure and enforce corporate accounting policies. Common analytical structures enable the remote buying and processing operations to function as a single, integrated system.
System configurations are set at the home office and electronically published to all subscribing sites. The subscribing sites then send back completed transactions and updated accounts and permits
Consolidated Transaction Database
CatchManager II maintains a master central database that automatically receives and consolidates transactional data from all plants. The database includes transactions and master files such as tickets, charges, payment transactions, accounts and financial transactions (journal entries).
CatchManager II automates the construction of general journal entries to match existing accounting systems. The system supports complex account structures (up to 10 account segments). Dynamic accounting rules drive the construction of journal entries based on data in the transactions such as fleet, plant, species and other product attributes. Journal entries may also be classified based on designated accounts for taxes, bank accounts, and fisher receivable/payable control accounts.
Fish Purchasing Analytics
Real-time reporting is available across all buying and processing operations by accessing the centralized CatchManager II database. With virtually real time information feeding from plant operations users are able to access their own self-defined business intelligence views. Since everyone is reviewing data from the same source, managers across the enterprise can be sure that reports are uniform and reliable.
