Choose the SoftTrace modules to meet your needs, increase profitability, and provide you with a competitive advantage
SoftTrace been designed to evolve with your ever changing business requirements, integrate all operational areas and provide a platform for full quality traceability. It is highly configurable, flexible and user friendly.
Integration between the SoftTrace Raw Materials and LIMS modules ensures full, electronic traceability from raw material intake to the process.
The In-Process module extends the traceability chain from raw material intake to in-process batches and onwards to bulk finished product. It provides a full profile on the data held on each batch, down to operator level. The In-Process module then integrates bulk finished goods and packing line data to provide a vital link between the bulk finished goods, their physical packing and the process. It extends the traceability chain to the inventory, which can be graded and held at sub-batch level for matching to customer specifications.
Full integration of the SoftTrace In-Process and Inventory Management modules secures the production traceability chain by providing an electronic link between process control sheets, packing, quality and inventory records.
Traceability to the customer is maintained to unit level within the batch – completing the electronic traceability chain from source to customer.
Traceability and Risk Management Benefits
The risk management benefits of implementing the SoftTrace Quality Management and Traceability Software system include:
Full forward and backward traceability.
Enhanced rapid response capabilities.
Minimising the impact of a product recall.
Strengthened retailer and consumer confidence.
An integrated suite of Quality Management and Traceability Software modules to reduce costs and guarantee legislative compliance
SoftTrace seamlessly integrates all critical quality, manufacturing and business data to guarantee full forward and backward traceability.
In many of today’s manufacturing facilities it is currently difficult to achieve the degree of data integration necessary for compliance with key quality standards and emerging traceability regulations. We have designed SoftTrace with a specific focus on quality management and traceability at plant level.
The SoftTrace system is unique in that it:
Tracks and integrates all relevant data from raw material intake through in-process and packing to finished goods, warehousing and dispatch. This guarantees an efficient response to internal and external quality issues and maximise rapid response capabilities.
Manages quality throughout the entire manufacturing process.
Supports best practice to insure that quality and validation rules are adhered to.
Ensures that the data chain from a quality and traceability point of view is always maintained.
A modular system that grows with your business and protects your investment
SoftTrace is a modular system that can grow with your business needs and link with your process automation and business systems to maintain the integrity of your data and eliminate potential gaps in the traceability chain.
SoftTrace can also link easily with your existing hardware (weighbridge systems, barcode printers etc.) to help you leverage any investments you have made to date.
SoftTrace can be deployed as a single Quality Management and Traceability Solution set or as part of an integrated solution. Using application program interface (API) technology all of the modules integrate easily with existing ERP and plant automation systems to close traceability gaps in your facility.
While the SoftTrace suite of Quality Management and Traceability Software modules can be implemented as a standalone system or on a modular basis, greater benefits can be achieved when it is integrated with your existing business and process automation systems. This way, it can be used to bridge the traceability gap between ERP and plant automation systems and link all critical data in one, fully integrated solution.
SoftTrace delivers a return on investment in less than a year!
We can demonstrate that implementing the SoftTrace Quality Management and Traceability Software suite delivers quantifiable returns. SoftTrace have produced a return on investment (ROI) study that examines the key areas for potential return such as laboratory costs, waste product disposal, production costs etc.
A rapid return on investment is provided through the availability of real-time, live data throughout the manufacturing process and the software’s ability to facilitate:
Full quality traceability throughout the process.
Guaranteed regulatory compliance.
Elimination of long paperwork cycles.
A reduction in overhead costs.
Maximised product yield management.
Optimised product values.
Superior plant management and increased efficiencies.
Effective control of inventory.
Improved operating profits.
Add to this the fact that SoftTrace can be rapidly implemented with a minimum of disruption to your business, the significantly reduced consulting and design period, and the software’s competitive cost. It all amounts to the guarantee of a quick return on your investment.
