Logistics Management Features TraceGains

Author: Thomas Cutler

According to Manufacturing journalist, TR Cutler, in the current issue of Logistics Management, With the advent of a new generation of corporate instrumentation that has become a necessity in every industry, one of the systems gaining prominence are the tracking and tracing systems, which is proving its worth especially in the logistics sector. These systems generate real-time alerts when supply chain activities are disrupted. And, these systems enable operators to keep track of each product coming to the warehouse, and manage the complex data systems. Besides, managers can also generate real-time views of the plant operation to make better decisions, thereby enhancing the efficiency of operations throughout the supply chain. The full feature can be read at Technology-TraceabilitySystem.pdf. However, in the case of manufacturing companies, many of them operate everyday with only partial instrumentation to guide them, and they think everything is fine, when in fact it is not. According to William R Pape, executive vice-president, TraceGains, The instrumentation required to operate a company could be better, significantly so, and the cost of adding enhanced instrumentation can also be managed. As an added bonus, the company can improve its traceability capability, a need that many manufacturers are finding increasingly urgent. The mission at TraceGains ( is to make the food supply chain safer and more profitable by helping companies produce finished goods faster, better, and more cost-effectively. Supplier Compliance is a food safety firewall that allows companies to detect and eliminate problems in the supply chain before they are incorporated into finished goods and shipped to customers. By reducing ingredient variability, the finished product becomes less costly to manufacture, performs better, and ultimately increases customer satisfaction. Supplier Impact enables companies to easily measure how each supplier affects finished goods quality and profitability, and connects product outcomes and customer feedback to specific upstream ingredient suppliers. Suppliers are continuously scored based on performance of key attributes for each shipment, and rank ordered against their peers. With the TraceGains CaseTrace and LabelTrace solutions, companies can achieve true ingredient-level traceability. Effective product recalls are accelerated and performed at the unit level, so recall costs, long-term brand damage, and brand rehabilitation costs are minimized. LabelTrace can be expanded to include brand authentication and consumer-level loyalty marketing. All TraceGains solutions present findings in easy-to-understand dashboard graphics with full drilldown capabilities, which are available for onsite deployment or delivered as SaaS (software-as-a-service). Headquartered in Longmont, Colorado, USA, TraceGains has direct and partner offices throughout North America, Europe, Latin America, and Asia. TraceGains Inc.
