Lot Tracking Software for Product Traceability

Blue Link’s Lot Tracking Software

Blue Link offers lot tracking functionality as part of an all-in-one inventory and accounting ERP solution.

Lot tracking, or batch tracking, allows for product traceability to keep track of which customers received specific groups (or shipments) of items and when they were received. The supplier and date these items were purchased are also tracked allowing managers to track an individual group of products (or shipment) from the supplier to their own warehouse and ultimately to the customer.

Lot tracking is a core component in achieving FDA / ISO / CFIA compliance for many businesses. This feature of Blue Link ERP also allows users to perform lot costing – tracking actual costs instead of FIFO or average.

Other Industries

Not only is lot tracking important for regulatory compliance in industries such as food and pharmaceutical, but also for many other businesses including those in the apparel, textile, and building supply industry.  In these industries, instead of tracking expiry dates and lot numbers for recall purposes, lot numbers are tracked with regards to dye lots. Dye lots apply to those businesses who manage different textiles and products in which identification of specific coloration is an important part of product tracking. When material is dyed in the same vat with the same mixture of colors, it is important to track this information in order to be able to match the color exactly, and to add this information to product labelling.
