With ALMADS flagship system now a more configurable multi-commodity system so that it can be used seamlessly for any tree nut processing, Macadamias Direct are making use of the flexibility of ALMADS since 2022
Almond Huller / Processor
One of the largest huller / processors in Australia, Select Harvests Limited signed with Regional IT in late 2010 to have an ALMADS solution developed ready for their 2011 season. All of the hulling and shelling modules were delivered prior to the season. Warehousing, Expanded QA, Inshell Finish Goods tracking, Grading and Dispatch were all developed soon after the season commenced. Season 2012 saw the delivery of the Marketing, Sorting and Packing, Micro testing, Expanded QA and Finished Goods Dispatch delivered prior to the season commenced with Reject Finished Goods and Consumable Inventory monitoring later developed. We have added more new features for season 2014 including installing the Commodity Lite module and providing ability to have linked bins both through Hulling & Shelling and Processing along with more Quality Assurance measures.
Season 2017 saw Regional IT interfacing with JD Edwards. We also now expanded ALMADS to include the use of 2D barcodes which Select Harvests will be using for the first time.
Almond Huller / Sheller/ Processor
Bright Light Agribusiness (BLA) is a new Almond Huller / Sheller / Processor constructed in regional Victoria, Australia.
BLA committed to take the full suite of ALMADS Modules from Grower Receiving through to Customer Packed Orders, Shipping and Invoicing and everything in between.
ALMADS will also be fully linked to the PLC system to reduce manual entry and alleviate human error, with their first harvest in 2021.
Starting in season 2014, ALMADS was developed to cater for Riverland Almond’s sorting, packing and retail packing operations. ALMADS is also interfacing with SAP that will now only serve as just an ordering and financial system. ALMADS replaces all inventory and processing operations because it is being developed to suit almond processing specifically.
Another Australian Macadamia Processor joins our ALMADS Family for 2023.
Waliz Nuts, located in the picturesque town of Newrybar, not far from the beaches of Byron Bay, New South Wales.
Starting with their first phase ALMADS implementation concentrating on Grower Receiving, Quality Assurance and Grower Payments, we will then move onto cracking, sorting and packing.
Waliz Nuts is a progressive, expanding company and we are excited to be along for the ride with them and assist them with efficiency and information.
LAMADS (Laragon Almond Management and Distribution System) – our first almond client at Regional IT in 2003, we developed a system to capture bin weights after almonds have been hulled and cracked using industrial terminals with Winsock and telnet technologies and communicating with scales and creation of barcoded technology to trace product anywhere within the system. Quality is captured from samples. Reports then generated for grower deliveries and quality.
2010 Season 7 saw us migrating Laragon’s version to fall in line with all ALMADS versions that had since been developed for a broader market. 2011 season saw 7 new bin scales installed under each sizer chute with technology attached to each bin scale to obtain weights and provide a sizer terminal to print bin tags for each scale through the LAMADS system.
Laragon’s system has been enhanced over the past couple of seasons with the introduction of a Grower Web Portal and now sending dispatch information direct to Processors for ease of data entry.
Regional IT’s oldest Almond client are still thinking of new ways to enhance their processes and for season 2017 had Regional IT adapt their LAMADS system to communicate with their new touch screen tablets .
Since 2016 season, ALMADS has been seamlessly adapted to suit the pistachio commodity using the Receiving, Hulling, Marketing, QA, Grading & Picking, Sorting & Packing, Shipping and Reporting modules all whilst interfacing with SAP.
Almond Huller / Sheller / Processor

Murray Downs Processing have committed to take the full suite of ALMADS Modules from Grower Receiving through to Customer Packed Orders, Shipping and Invoicing and everything in between.
Our goal is to take their brand new almond huller, sheller, processor, and packer operations paperless, using #ALMADS and RFID technology, from the orchard to the final packing stage. We’re always on the lookout for cutting-edge solutions, and this project is no different. This will be a groundbreaking first and we are excited to partner with them.
Almond Huller / Sheller
Regional IT is excited to welcome Costa Brothers Hullers and Shellers who came on board early 2017. We pulled all our resources together to deliver the 1st phase of an ALMADS project within 3 weeks of acceptance.
Costa Brothers have built a new plant located just our of Swan Reach, South Australia and approached us late in the project to supply software. We managed to deliver their full project in just under 2 months to have them ready for 2017 harvest.
ALMADS scalability is on full display with the signing and new installation of ALMADS into one of the more smaller almond processing and packing clients.
We welcomed Belehris Estates for season 2022, and had to work with extremely short lead times from when we were contacted to when we had to deliver our software. Although time lines were tight, we managed to install the first phase of the project in a week ready for the first packing work order.
