Plex Systems Sponsors Research Report on Food Safety and Traceability

Auburn Hills-based Plex Systems Inc. Tuesday announced the availability of an Aberdeen Group research paper titled "Food Safety and Traceability: Ensuring Compliance and Enabling Supply Chain Visibility."

The food safety report is available as a free download from Plex Systems.

Sponsored by Plex Systems, Aberdeen researchers take a close look at technology to improve product and process traceability, including meeting new mandates stipulated by the 2011 Food Safety Modernization Act. Plex Online Cloud ERP is identified as a powerful tool to manage and integrate data for complete traceability across the supply chain.

"Food safety, compliance, product recalls and brand reputation have forced many food and beverage companies to question their ability to provide enterprise-wide traceability," says Matthew Littlefield, senior research analyst at Aberdeen. "Top manufacturers are automating data collection, establishing role-based visibility and investing in technology across the overall technology stack to improve product and process traceability across the enterprise."

Readers can use this report to understand the lessons learned from the top performers while avoiding the pain points and obstacles encountered by their peers.

The paper was authored and researched by Aberdeen Group, a Harte-Hanks Company.
