Maritech launching new solution to streamline seafood procurement and sales

Published on

Maritech, a Norwegian traceability and business software developer, is launching the latest addition to its DigitalSeafood portfolio on 2 April: DGS Purchase and Sales.

A native cloud application, the DGS solution streamlines seafood procurement and sales from any device and location, Maritech said. Users of the software will be able to automate the purchase and sales process with margin efficient, box-level tracking and pricing, the company explained, with minimal manual entry required.

DGS Purchase and Sales works to ensure full traceability from vessel to farm unit, and possesses “all the functionality needed to purchase, hold, and sell seafood at a box level,” according to Maritech. The software also features a set of Power BI reports designed to improve seafood providers’ efficiency and margins.

“Our experience is that most seafood companies still carry out unnecessary manual processes and have untapped potential for automation,” Maritech North America Managing Director Blair Shelton said. “The consequence is less efficiency and control, and both time and motivation are wasted performing repetitive tasks. As the seafood industry is becoming increasingly technology-driven, digital quality management, access to real-time data and smart solutions for digital cooperation represent important competitive advantages. According to Gartner, analytics are amongst the most crucial capabilities of successful companies today and in the time to come.”

By adopting smart technology, seafood companies appeal to the modern trends highlighting innovation and connection, the software developer noted.

“Technologically skilled youth of today – your future employees, customers, and their customers – expect you to provide state of the art digital tools and tend to prefer employers who can offer a high degree of workplace flexibility and agility. They are used to being able to work anywhere, anytime and across devices.” Maritech said. “DGS Purchase and Sales enables both you and the next generation to have total control no matter where you are, so that you can sell and buy fish from your mobile and spend more time outside your office.”

The 2 April launch of DGS Purchase and Sales will transpire digitally at Maritech’s website and will be hosted by Maritech Senior Consultant/Solutions Architect Christine Møller-Christensen.
