Codetrack checks out the Christmas turkeys
Nationwide delivery of specially ordered Christmas turkeys leaves no room for error.
A major retailer asked a logistics company specialising in complex supply chain solutions for the food industry to deliver the fresh turkeys its customers had ordered just in time for Christmas.
To ensure correct deliveries, the company realised its distribution centres needed to check the bar code labels the suppliers had applied, as well as checking despatches against store orders.
Codeway rapidly developed a sample based quality audit system running on Dolphin hand held computers. This enabled the company to check despatches, replace incorrect bar codes, and deliver the right goods the right stores.
On the Saturday before Christmas, there was a minor problem. This was resolved by a mobile call to the lead developer, who was out last-minute shopping.
- Customers satisfied
- Retailer avoided loss of sales and waste

Codeway produces Codetrack application software to integrate the use of barcodes and mobile data with your business processes and computer systems in the most effective way.
