Eggs are one of the most enjoyed consumable goods every year by Americans, with the average number of eggs produced reaching 9.3 billion dozen according to Statista. While these are enjoyed worldwide, eggs require strict compliance and rigorous testing per the Food and Drug Administration [FDA] to ensure that they are as safe as possible for consumption.
In this article, we explore the steps of the global egg production process and learn how Inecta’s software solutions can assist egg producers at every stage of their process.
What is ERP software?
ERP software is better known as Enterprise Resource Planning software and assists businesses in managing the day-to-day operations of their business through one centralized location. While there are many different types of ERP software options available for corporations and other divisions of the business, there were few considerations made for the food production industry ⸺ which is where Inecta came in to assist.

Many businesses are still struggling to unify other alternative methods and sync them into a cloud-based system. However, with Inecta’s strong partnership with Microsoft, you can enjoy the ease of use that a cloud system provides, enabling you to seamlessly track every batch for ultimate efficiency and compliance should the need arise to recall or review your products.
Real-time data updates
Visibility and transparency in data management is key for the success of your business. With Inecta, you can enjoy the dashboard that provides precision data that can inform your strategic decision-making process. These dashboards are visible to every team member throughout the production process and include important information tracking capabilities such as:
- Sales spend

- Estimated profit
- Actual profit
- Total quantity sold
- And much, much more.
These dashboards are updated in real-time to ensure that you have the most accurate data available.
Efficient recall and trace technology
Your business produces thousands of eggs on any given day. Manual tracking would cause sufficient loss of time and resources, and simply isn’t reliable when it comes to something as important and precarious as potential recalls can be. With our software, you can seamlessly recall and trace batches in seconds to assess and mitigate risks. Input and output data is gathered and correlated to the relevant lot that it is associated with, taking the guesswork out of tracking when you need it most.
Streamlined inventory management
Inventory management has long been a struggle for the food and beverage industry, especially with growing restrictions and recommendations from governmental agencies. You can maintain the ease of use your team needs through one centralized hub, tracking inventory effectively and monitoring all transactions. This can also be helpful should you need to look back and identify possible allergenic contamination or recall issues. With our methodology, you minimize the risk of waste and production mismanagement thanks to our user-friendly interface that promotes tracking and responsible management practices.
Software partnerships you can count on
Inecta has housed its software solution using Microsoft Business Central. Because of this, you can experience the world-class utility and reliability that the software can provide.
