Genesis seeds

 The customer:

Genesis Seeds is a production and Research Company based in Israel, which specializes in vegetable, herb and flower seed, and offers F-1 hybrid, open pollinated and heirloom varieties. The production procedures are held in strict conditions, according to ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 14001 standards. Genesis customers speared from North America to west Europe and beyond.

The challenges:
During the years, Genesis had grown to be one of the world’s largest producers of certified organic vegetable, herb and flower seed. Production increasing quickly led to new needs, and the company began seeking for solutions which will overcome their new challenges, specifically in the area of inventory counting. The thought was to find a machine which can be used in all seed types, but still maintain a high level of counting accuracy, in order to ensure precise inventory.

The Solution:
Dealing with large seed varieties requires a 'smart system', which can be adjusted to all seeds. The system must be accurate to enable precise inventory management, but at the same time suited for the production increasing product capacity. While searching for such a devise, Genesis encountered DATA's counting solutions. The unheralded counting speed combined with 99.9% accuracy, made DATA the ideal solution. Genesis had purchased the DATA Count & Fill S-25 model, which is able to count both small seeds such as flower seeds, as well as various vegetable seeds.
The DATA Count & Fill S-25 is used in Genesis mainly for inventory management, a procedure which was almost impossible to be done in the past. With the new DATA Count & Fill S-25, Genesis can now quickly count and package small orders and large orders accurately.

Results:
By using DATA Count & Fill S-25, Genesis is able to know the precise inventory count. The need for maintaining large seed inventory was diminished, and the depreciation in stock decreased. Furthermore, as most of Genesis product is sold by weight, the company uses the DATA Count & Fill for control purposes, to ensure sufficient seed count.
The DATA Count & Fill S-25 was a worthwhile and cost-effective investment, resulting in the ability to conduct strict inventory management supported by constant live data, precise counting to ensure accurate sales for each product and reduced time consumption in daily seed processing procedures.
