PCCA‘s module tracking system facilitates gin module inventory and module processes from the field to the finished bale. This system utilizes smart phone apps and web-based programs that integrate with existing gin scale and module truck scale systems to allow management of the gin module inventory.
- Gin personnel can identify farms by GPS locations in their office using the map software supplied in the system. Modules called in by the producer are logged in on the call-in screen. If the gin tags and/or tarps the modules, an account information adhesive tag can be printed to attach to the module tag.
- A Module Location mobile app allows for scanning the module tag, locating the module, photographing the module and uploading the information to the module tracking system via a smart phone with cellular data service. If no data service is available at the module location, the information is saved and can be uploaded once cellular data service or Wi-Fi access is available.
- When dispatched to pick up a module, directions are printed for the truck driver. Consisting of two pages, the first is a map showing directions to the farm, and the second page provides directions to the module if it was located with the mobile phone app. It also shows the yard location to unload the module at the gin.
