Lot tracking software for end-to-end traceability

Product recalls happen, and a business needs to be prepared. Lot traceability software is critical for handling medical supplies or distributing food. Cloud manufacturing software like Katana for expiry date tracking ensures industry compliance and total visibility when lot tracking.

One human error can collapse an entire business when using spreadsheets instead of lot traceability software

A lot tracking system is essential for batch production manufacturers taking selling into their own hands, from implementing B2B and D2C selling strategies to breaking into foreign markets. The benefits of lot tracking include accurate recalls, improvements to quality and safety, optimizing inventory tracking and traceability, implementing material requirements planning, and compliance with industry regulations.

Katana has a warehouse management feature that automates lot information collection on finished goods and raw materials, integrates accounting and e-commerce inventory to create a smooth workflow between your tools and departments.

Lot identification is a process of attaching a lot number to a particular lot of a product.
