Welcome to the BDQ™ - Bird Dog Quality Scoring Portal
The Bird Dog Portal is an extension of RJO's highly acclaimed Bird
Dog Inspection Program and is able to instantly track crop quality
in the field. It allows RJO Bird Dog inspectors to photograph,
collect, and instantly classify the quality of any fresh produce they
are inspecting. The system allows the Bird Dog™ to input a broad
range of quality characteristics for each commodity and variety;
from size, color and solidity to brix and overall appearance.
The Portal allows the ability to track product quality today
and over time where each characteristic is instantly coded and
assigned a BDQ™ Score.
Product scoring algorithms have been reviewed and modified to
allow adjustments based on customer specific quality
specifications. BDQ™ scores reflect the key attributes determined
by the customer to measure their desired quality against the
market and over time.
RJO customers now have the ability to assess and quantify the
quality of fresh produce in ways never done before. This new
process brings the Bird Dog App™ and BDQ™ scores full circle
providing unbiased, quantifiable, quality information based on their
quality specifications. No longer are buyers working off a "best
available" or this "ranks #1" and have to apply it to their business.
