Traceability is key Companies use traceability to know what is happening in their supply chain. They invest heavily in systems to track product and work closely with trading partners to achieve “one-up/one-down” traceability.
But very few companies know what happens to that product through every step of the supply chain. Few can quickly retrieve information several steps back in the supply chain, to the product’s original source. With the chain incomplete or a link missing, product history is potentially compromised. This leaves companies at risk when identifying the source of a problem or proving that a product originates from a sustainable source.
This is where Trace Register can help. Our easy-to-use traceability system makes it possible to capture and share vital product information from source to sale.
Used by over 800 companies around the world, the Trace Register™ system is a web-based, on-demand application that can be used by producers, buyers, marketers, and regulators alike. It functions as an independent, third-party “registry” into which product source and traceability information is entered, secured, and shared among companies throughout the supply chain. It overlays the physical supply chain with an “information supply chain” that connects all trading partners.
Easy to implement and use There is nothing complicated about the Trace Register™ system. It requires no special software, hardware, or technical skills. An internet connection is all you need to start using it – right away.
Designed for the way you do business The Trace Register™ system will match your business whether you are a sole proprietor or a multi-national corporation. There is no need to impose new business processes, numbering schemes or special labeling. You can start using it immediately without disrupting your day-to-day business activities.
Powerful and flexible The Trace Register™ system delivers the functionality and the flexibility to capture all the information you require to manage your supply chain. It allows you to include all product data from source to sale, including information about fertilizers, feed, ingredients, and treatments.
Global and multi-lingual Today’s supply chains are global and they require the support of global systems. The Trace Register™ system is currently in use in 24 different countries and is available in five major languages: Chinese, English, Japanese, Spanish, and Thai.
