Laboratory Instrument Interface for precise data capture

SoftTrace software has been developed to contain the critical precision functionality that lab analysis demands. Enabling the user to capture test analysis data and sample results in real time directly from the analysis instrument. Mitigating the risk of human manual data entry error and spoiled sample due to chain of custody omissions and errors.
SoftTrace have built a suit of interfaces to the leading raw materials, in process and finished product instrument manufactures.

  • Easy to configure interface with matching tests results on instrument to analysis results.
  • Alerts for out of specification results to designated personnel within the system, SMS or email
  • Real time automated capture of data
  • Graphing result trends to highlight specification deviations and repeat non- conformances for corrective action.
  • Maintain specifications within the SoftTrace system
Integrated Sample Barcode Functionality Icon

Integrated Sample Barcode Functionality

Laboratories are extremely busy and seasonal variances in milk intake volumes can result in heavy workloads. SoftTrace recognises that turn around times for analysis is critical and has developed software to integrate with barcode scanners and label printers, enhancing efficiencies and creating full visibility of the sample as it passes through each step in the analysis process.

  • Barcode management for supplier, tanker, and intake samples
  • Full visible chain of custody on samples from intake to analysis completion
  • Automated sample data capture and assignment to testing schedules
  • Increase lab productivity efficiencies, minimise manual data entry errors.

Bulk Liquids Intake

Intake management of bulk liquids in dairy is both specific and complex. The capturing of critical relevant data from multiple sources such as variable composition, volume measurement, silo and process allocation, load traceability and quality analysis can be challenging.

The SoftTrace Intake Management system is configurable, unique and brings with it the exact precision required to measure, calculate and manage bulk liquids of variable composition.

Process Manufacturing

SoftTrace has collaborated with globally recognised dairy manufacturers to create production process management software that delivers industry specific functionality.

SoftTrace In Process functionality was developed to fully Integrate with the manufacturing process to monitor & control detailed information on the make up of any batch of bulk finished product to packed finished product units.

Finished Goods, Inventory & Dispatch

SoftTrace Inventory Management optimises your stock movements by accessing critical data in real-time, offering full visibility of stock and stock movements in minutes.

Access to a full range of reports on stock grades, locations, shelf life, transfer, and movement, including purchase order, sales order, truck manifest, dispatch summaries and invoicing
