Businesses at every level of the seafood industry offer unique challenges in management, further highlighting the need for a robust ERP system. To manage incoming needs and consumer risk, food manufacturers in the seafood space often look to enterprise resource planning systems to help manage day-to-day operations and ensure that quality is never sacrificed at any point in the production and distribution process.
Despite knowing the need for and benefits of using a food-specific ERP solution, It may be hard to know when is the right time to invest in seafood software for your food business. Food manufacturers operating on a smaller scale may feel that they cannot afford a robust food management software system, or gain enough benefits to offset the initial upfront cost.

Today, we're discussing when you should invest in seafood software, and the ways you can use Inecta's ERP system to optimize your business, save money and increase profitability.

Managing food safety with lot tracing

Our simple approach to lot traceability

Improving lot traceability
Lot traceability is one of the most important aspects of running any food business. Accountability is essential for maintaining the supply chain and eliminating potential disruptions. That's why improving lot traceability is one of the best ways for seafood producers to streamline their business operations and minimize the possibility of product recalls and supply chain disruptions.
Below are some of the best ways to improve lot traceability with your food management software:
Automatic quality control measures
An automatic process for measuring quality control helps to flag any inconsistencies or irregularities that may arise in a food management operation. It also mitigates the risk of human error where possible. These quality control measures can pinpoint the source of contamination and allow you to make decisions to minimize the harmful effects.
Distribution tracking features found in Inecta's ERP software solution allows producers to follow the supply chain and track where the product goes after production. Distribution tracking also helps buyers accurately track their products to ensure they can determine the source of any contamination.
