TraceX offers comprehensive traceability solutions that cover both the pre-harvest and post-harvest stages of the food supply chain. Let us explore the features and benefits of Trace-Gro and Trace-Pro.
Pre-harvest traceability refers to the ability to track and trace the origin and production practices of agriculture products before they are harvested. It involves capturing and documenting relevant information about cultivation, management and input usage during the crop growth phase.
The Trace Gro module enables onboarding of farmers through FPOs, cooperatives and blocs. The Farmer profiling feature allows the recording of farmer information including their personal identification details. The farms are geo-mapped to ensure transparency in land -use activities and prevent boundary overlaps. The crops are configured along with the associated package of practices like cultivation practices, fertilizer usage and pest management techniques. The real-time data on these practices ensures quality of product and helps in traceability. Capturing data at farm level ensures transparency and accountability in production practices. The data entry is enabled through user-friendly mobile apps that are multi-lingual and operate in offline mode also. The procurement module streamlines the input procurement processes and facilitates fairness and transparency.
These features promote sustainable agriculture by encouraging responsible resource usage, reducing environmental impact and supporting ethical farming practices. It also helps to adhere to Farm audits and certifications, thereby ensuring regulatory compliance in the entire process.
Post-harvest traceability refers to the ability to track and trace agriculture products after they have been harvested and throughout the subsequent stages of processing, distribution and sale. It involves capturing and recording information about handling, storage, transportation and transformation of harvested products.
Trace-Pro module streamlines processes related to generation of GRN, Inventory management, manufacturing, product processing, generation of sales orders and supply chain management. The feature also provides graphical representation of expected, harvested and received quantity of produce through dashboards. The proper storage conditions and quality parameters are also monitored to ensure transparency. The real-time visibility of movement of products allows for increased efficiency and address food safety problems. The quality standards captured helps companies to comply with regulatory demands. Finally, the Custom configuration module helps in generating Batch IDs and QR codes for products. Product IDs help in achieving traceability and addressing problems due to product recalls. The QR code recreates the farm to fork story of the product, thereby assuring the end consumers of a safe and healthy product.
The combined features of Trace Gro and Trace Pro empower businesses to ensure transparency, sustainability and quality throughout the food supply chain. It further enables consumers to make informed decisions in line with their preferences. This helps businesses to contribute to a more transparent and sustainable food system.
The solutions help to capture and track data related to quality parameters and facilitate real-time monitoring of safety aspects like food safety regulations, product certifications and compliance with hygienic practices. It enables capturing data on sourcing practices, environmental impact and adherence to sustainability certifications and labels. The information recorded proves the authenticity and validity of organic and sustainability certifications ensuring transparency to consumers and the stakeholders.
Real-time data capture and tracking enables generation of dashboards and reports fostering data- driven agriculture. This helps companies to optimize their operations and resource usage, reduce food waste, optimize operational efficiency and take informed decisions.
