• Blue Link wins food logistics award

VAUGHAN, Ontario – December 17, 2019 Blue Link food traceability software, a leading provider of all-in-one ERP software, is excited to be recognized for the seventh year by Food Logistics’ 2019 FL100+ Top Software and Technology Providers List.

The annual FL100+ list honors the top software and technology providers in the food and beverage industry. Now in its 16th year, Food Logistics highlights software companies that address challenges in the food and beverage industry and ensure an efficient and reliable global food supply chain.

Compliance with food safety regulations is a critical component of the food and beverage industry. Over the past few years, the amount of food recalls and contamination has grown. From 2013 to 2018 alone, food recalls in the United States increased by 10 percent. With almost 1 in 10 people falling ill and approximately 420,000 deaths every year related to food contamination, food distributors are realizing the demand for agile, all-in-one software that helps improve business processes.

“Blue Link is proud to be recognized by Food Logistics on its FL100+ list. Customers use the tools and best practices that we recommend to efficiently manage their inventory-centric businesses.  We are constantly improving our system and functionality to face new challenges appearing in the food and beverage industry.” – Darren Myher, CTO, Blue Link Associates

Blue Link Food Traceability Software provides an all-in-one solution that helps automate processes and provides functionality for:

  • Traceability – lot tracking
  • Fully integrated inventory management
  • Landed cost tracking – freight costs, duties, brokerage, etc.
  • Warehouse management – track shipping, container lookup, etc.
  • Accounting and financials

 Lot Tracking

Blue Link food traceability software allows customers to track items that require a lot number. Lot allocation enables the tracking of expiry and best before dates and the management of recalls. Blue Link’s software also shows lot history, such as current stock levels, storing and selling locations, and more. Lot tracking is a method of following the history of a product, from the receipt of purchase up until its sale. It also allows tracking variances of costs from one purchase to another.

Selling an Item that Requires Lot Tracking

When a user creates a sales order that requires lot tracking, the person must also allocate lots to the product on the order either manually or automatically. Once packed and ready to ship, the user can allocate the items into specific containers. Blue Link food traceability software supports multiple units of measures (UOMs) and barcode scanning. Users can scan or manually pick items to allocate quantities to containers. Once completed, the sales order is ready to be shipped.

Purchasing an Item that Requires Lot Tracking

Users can allocate lot numbers to a purchase order either when it is created or received. They can then assign and allocate internal or external lot numbers. Users will process the order once they have entered the required information.

Blue Link food traceability software offers a variety of flexible tools to efficiently manage inventory, track orders, manage multiple warehouse locations, integrate mobile handheld picking and barcode scanning, and more. Blue Link manages and automates business processes across your entire company and helps achieve and sustain FDA/ISO/CFIA compliance.

As the World Health Organization (WHO) emphasizes in their article on food safety, “Food supply chains now cross multiple national borders. Good collaboration between governments, producers and consumers helps ensure food safety” (2019).
