Schiltz Foods, located in Sisseton, SD, is the largest provider of geese and capons in North America. The business has adapted from selling only whole young geese, to meeting market demands by providing additional products such as pre-roasted goose, smoked goose products, and delicacies such as goose breast, confit legs, liver, and rendered fat for cooking.
Previously, Schiltz processed all its inventory manually. Finished goods were tracked with random weights and given GS1 barcode labels as they come off the line. Once labeled, those details (product type, date, and weight) were handwritten and passed off for entry into Excel. Manifests and bills of lading were also handwritten as products were transferred to a third-party cold storage. This manual inventory management system was inefficient and prone to human error. ParityFactory was implemented to automate inventory and provide improved tracking.
