Don’t waste time manually tracking your production – let Katana make traceability simple to track and trace all of your products with ease.

With the Advanced plan, you can now use batch/lot tracking numbers to easily monitor inventory movements across your supply chain, which will help you:

  • Protect your brand with the ability to trace defective items back to their batch
  • Take the stress out of a product recall with easy batch identification
  • Meet quality and safety requirements of relevant authorities with end-to-end traceability

Achieve end-to-end traceability, from raw materials to finished goods, with this latest update to overhaul your inventory management.

How to set up batch number tracking

Using batch numbers is simple, all you have to do is head over to your Product Card, and enable I track batch / lot numbers.

Once you’ve activated batch tracking, you can now:

  • Assign batch numbers to manufacturing orders
  • Assign batch numbers of finished goods you’re taking from stock for a sales order
  • Assign batch numbers in bulk to orders
  • Track the quantities of individual products, and have visibility on expiration dates of perishable inventory

If you want to view what batches you have in inventory, go to the Items page and open the Batches tab to see what you have on hand.

Is this update for you?

Batch tracking is an essential assurance and a legal requirement for industries such as:

  • Food and beverage
  • Cosmetics
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Medical supplies and equipment
