For more than 15 years, Trace Register has been the leader in traceability software for the global seafood industry. We have defined, pioneered, and refined approaches to full-chain traceability. Built on the concepts of Link. Analyze. Act., our products help every member of the seafood supply chain ecosystem.
Utilizing the newest technologies, we’ve been able to take an unprecedented approach with our latest release, TR5 platform. This approach enables an event-based system for the new era of full-chain traceability.
Click on each of the points below to learn why TR5 is different from previous traceability:
TR5 is an open, interoperable system based on industry standards.
- Built on GS1 and GDST industry standards, TR5 users can send and receive traceability data from any other system using the same industry-standards. We believe your competitive advantage lies in what you can do with your traceability data, not in its data format.
TR5 uses master data to eliminate re-entry of static data.
- In legacy systems, data templates capture static data, but this has proved to be highly inefficient and brittle, creating significant inconsistencies of data between trading parties. TR5 addresses this problem by using standardized master data based on GS1 standards to improve data consistency significantly and build in system resiliency.
TR5 provides a new era of event-based traceability.
- Event-based traceability is much different and captures the history of a product as a series of critical tracking events (CTEs.) Each CTE has five KDEs: Who, What, When, Where, and Why. By grouping event-based collections of KDEs, a contextual dimension results that is not possible with traditional traceability.
TR5 uses linked data, the key to delivering the Semantic Web.
- Linked data makes it easy to integrate traceability data into existing workflows rather than replace them. For example, many of our partners use traceability data to streamline their interactions with their customs brokers when dealing with SIMP.
TR5 revolutionizes traceability document management.
- Attachments support digital claims and are “linked” to the CTE it supports.
- Certificates are associated with master data and have a valid timeframe. By linking these to master data, it allows for easy sharing and validation of both the certificate and the associated master data element.
TR5 puts the power of continuous monitoring continuous auditing (CMCA) to work so you can move from a reactive to a predictive approach.
- TR5 integrates the proven methodology of CMCA and takes it a step further by enabling CMCA Corrective Actions, or Linked Work Items. As CMCA executes against the traceability data, it creates Linked Work Items that can be shared between members of the supply chain. Each Work Item makes it seamless for supply chain partners to collaborate and manage issues when they arise.
