Merit Technology has launched new software, which it hopes will transform the despatch-packing process for bakeries.

The SOM Despatch-Packing Module is designed to eliminate human error in warehouses, by tracking every item loaded on to vans and cross-checking them against the orders that need to be filled.

The system can display either a customer's order, or an individual van's load. It also features a "traffic light notification system", which tells a packer exactly what still needs to be packed.

"The packing process has always been plagued by human error, which over a period of time can cost companies a fortune this system essentially eradicates those mistakes," said a spokesperson for Merit.
