Elevate and revolutionise your Agribusiness

One of Regional IT’s specialties is the development of the Agricultural Logistics, Management and Distribution System (ALMADS), initially developed for the Australian and American nut industries.

ALMADS is a suite of modules that has been developed to efficiently manage food processing companies from a single site, single plant operation to multi-site, multi-plant operations.

ALMADS has so far proven itself to be an integral part of the Ag Processing industries managing Hulling, Shelling, Storage, Drying, Sorting & Packing processes providing tools to improve efficiency and traceability for the whole operation.

The biggest point of difference between ALMADS and most other process management systems is the way data is captured live in the processing plants and using barcode and RFID technology.
