Famous Software's Heather Hammack Discusses New Blockchain Technology Developments



FRESNO, CA - Ever since the word blockchain hit the produce industry’s newswires, it’s been impossible to turn away from the importance of it. Retailers across the nation have continued to utilize blockchain technology to both differentiate themselves from their competitors and ensure their shoppers are getting the safest and freshest produce possible.

Famous' development team has been working in direct partnership with Walmart and IBM to make sure that our ERP and FIS messaging products satisfy the needs of Walmart’s initiative

For example, Walmart recently announced its own blockchain-enabled Walmart Food Traceability Initiative, which it has been rolling out for the last 18 months. The retailer has made claims that with this blockchain technology, it is able to perform a complete traceback within minutes—rather than hours or even days.

Ever since that announcement, Famous Software has been working with Walmart and the IBM Food Trust Network to prepare an easy-to-implement solution for its customers. Built on the Oracle based Famous Integrations Services (FIS) platform, Blockchain is already live with several customers, and Famous Software also has 30 more waiting to begin using it.

Heather Hammock, President, Famous Software“Our development team has been working in direct partnership with Walmart and IBM to make sure that our ERP and FIS messaging products satisfy the needs of Walmart’s initiative and communicate seamlessly with the blockchain network,” stated Heather Hammock, President, Famous Software. “Our team has developed a complete on-boarding process that demonstrates how you can use your Famous Software solution to transmit the correct information to Walmart’s blockchain network and achieve compliance."

Additionally, once Walmart made that announcement that it would require both Produce Traceability Initiative (PTI) labels and Advanced Ship Notification (ASN) information, Famous Software was prepped and ready to assist its over 100 customers who already trade with Walmart.
