Track-and-trace solutions can help you identify any weak links in your supply chain, authenticate individual products and their components, track conditions to help prevent product damage, diversion or waste, and even take control of your products’ carbon footprint.
The insights you gain empower you to make immediate, informed decisions to help optimize your day-to-day operations, protect your brand and increase proximity and real-time contact with partners and end users.
Step one: Each product/unit is identified with a serial number that acts as the item’s unique identification (UID) and individualizes it within the supply chain.
Step two: Once entered into your database, this serial number starts being monitored, creating real-time visibility at every step in your supply chain.
Step three: The traceability platform collects data from each product, which can be used to make decisions in real time. You alone own the data and determine which data is most relevant to your operations.
Step four: Once they receive your product, your consumers will be able to view its history, its authenticity and any other information of your choosing, simply by scanning the barcode.
Traceability allows you to view data in a multidimensional context. It strengthens authentication, safeguards against counterfeiting and gray-market diversion, and wins litigation thanks to item-level traceability and chain-of-custody reports. OPTEL’s digital traceability software and hardware solutions ensure real-time visibility into your supply chain’s state of health, helping you to prevent outbreaks, quickly identify sources of contamination, and manage recalls faster and more efficiently.
Food safety and foodborne illnesses at the farm level being a growing global concern, efficient traceability solutions are now essential for produce manufacturers.
