eProd Solutions has introduced wireless Bluetooth weighing scales and  printers. The physical weighing and paperwork involved at the point of produce collection pose a challenge to the collection team. The field officers and collection teams have typically little time to weigh and record the deliveries made and at the same time prepare delivery confirmations. “Now eProd manages our paper based delivery group summary overviews that we hand over to our farmers, but now we can also print individual receipts during the collection. Our farmers love it”, Daniel Mbuvi, administrator of Equator Kenya.

Bluetooth will open up new avenues for making eProd to be part of the Internet of Things, or IOT. For example, integration with smart power systems, precision agriculture tools, farm management software, and affordable sensors are all within reach of even the smallest farmers today. In order to avoid the creation of lock-in dependencies, eProd Solutions has ensured that its value chain management system can virtually communicate with any Bluetooth printer and weighing scale available in the market. However, a number of recommended Bluetooth printers/weighing scale suppliers have been identified to partner with eProd Solutions on the supply of the hardwares.
