What’s in your supply chain?
Nearly every small business has a supply chain that needs careful tending.
So, how do you make sure the components you put in your own product
are perfectly safe, sanitary, and non-defective?

From the recent meningitis contamination to the past peanut problems, businesses need to know their supply chain and have the ability to track and trace on demand.
Product recall has been a fact of business life for decades and this is particularly sensitive in food & medical business as the health of the public is clearly at stake.
In the past, many smaller businesses have not been able to keep track of where products have been sent and how, in the event of recall, they can come up with the list of customers to whom they shipped the recalled lots.
With modern technology this is no longer a problem. The owners and managers of companies should be able to sleep better and produce the needed information when required.
