Tell us about your profession

We are a company that is dedicated to the commercialization of fruits and vegetables, for export to different countries of the world. We take care of quality control from the field to the hands of the consumer in the United States, Europe, Russia and others. I am in charge of the continuous improvement of the work of the company, automating processes and exploiting to the maximum the tools that we have at our disposal today.

«With Kizeo Forms, we managed to get the company to have a report 5 times faster. »

Why did you decide to use Kizeo Forms?

I have always tried to implement an application that could generate information in real time from the field. Thanks to the versatility of the Kizeo Forms application, the company was able to get a report 5 times faster. In addition, our clients, regardless of the country where they are located in, receive an electronic mail with the required information. This projects the ideal professional image and support to our clients.

«We have several applications with Kizeo Forms such as quality reports, sales value estimates and time sheets.»

How do you use the Kizeo Forms application in your company?

We have several applications working at the moment and we are developing more functions. In detail, we have some Quality Reports which we use to carry out the inspection of pineapple packing. By filling out this form, we generate a very good quality report with great ease such that, from a telephone (regardless of the brand), the person in charge is entering the required information, each sampling with photos, calculations, data, where we can generate each of the palettes and its traceability. When the container is ready with the load of pineapples, we will have a professional report and in the language required by the client.

Estimates: A person in charge from his phone (regardless of the brand), is counting in real time the sizes of the pineapples, in a random sampling. When he finishes his sampling he already has the detail of the projections and also the estimate of how much this specific lot will produce. In addition, we have an email with graphics detailing the curve of sizes, according to the size of the pineapple. From there, we are separating what can not be exported and what can be exported. This same report gives me a projection of value from the sale of the pineapples.

Returns: We also have a timesheet with information of the phone number and the person in charge of the crew in a simple form. The employees can digitally fill-in the timesheet. All the entries have the name and signature for verification. This form generates the daily work done and the cost of the work done per day and per week, when necessary. An automatic email is sent to the respective department with the details of the employees to enter them into the payroll system. With the calculations made using the Kizeo Forms application, we have generated savings in staff hours.

«Now, we can generate data from the field and obtain savings in time and paper usage. »

To what extent does Kizeo Forms facilitate your work?

With the technical support provided, it has been able to adapt to our work. Kizeo Forms helped us design forms used for various processes in our organisation thereby giving us a competitive advantage. With these applications, our company continues to work with a professional service at a global level.

Thanks to the samplings we can generate data from the field. This helps us save time, where before there was a slow and very tedious process, now, with these applications, we have everything from the field. The paper saving further helps us take care of the environment.
