WLBP - Ddraig Scanning

WLBP logoAs a UCAS accredited scheme operator Welsh Lamb and Beef Producers are required to keep records related to their members for long periods. The amount of paper that accumulates had become a serious issue and it was even becomming a concern that the weight, in paper records, could potentially cause structural damage to their building if a solution was not found to the ever growing storage issue.

SmartData utilised a high capacity scanning device, designed and developed a custom component that utilsied barcodes and would allow paper records to be stored electronically, associated with a given member and linked into their existing Ddraig database application. This allowed for easy access to historical correspondence whilst also allowing the originals to be destroyed and meet the requirements laid out by UCAS.
