FarmSoft fresh produce software solutions:
Meeting fresh produce traceability guidelines can be challenging, time consuming, and expensive. FarmSoft traceability software strives to automate the traceability challenge as much as possible, freeing up employees to perform other tasks. Integrated into the fruit and vegetable traceability functionality of FarmSoft is the ability to incorporate Quality Control and Quality Management Systems into the day to day operations of your FarmSoft traceability software. Processes in FarmSoft traceability software ensure employees are prompted to perform the correct actions at the correct time, ensuring maximum quality, yield, traceability, and adherence to best practices at all times.
As witnessed in the European Union and the United States recently, poor traceability can lead to massive recalls, resulting in massive losses to producers and actors in the supply chain. Using a FarmSoft solution ensures traceability both up and down the supply chain, by more than one step. This extra level of multi-step traceability is not supported by most other traceability solutions. FarmSoft also includes the ability to handle ‘cascading traceability’. Cascading Traceability is required when internal processes (such as food manufacturing) contain multiple inputs from multiple suppliers (who may have sourced the inputs from other suppliers), and the product is being exposed to iterative batch manufacturing processes which can create outputs that may be used in additional batches…. (this process may be repeated in may different batches).
