There’s no other industry in today’s economy structured quite like the food business. For a lot of manufacturers, it can be difficult to secure ingredients – or any other supplies – because of a lack of buying power – whether it’s based on quantity or frequency.
That’s why brokers, distributors, and importers play such a critical role in the supply chain – they allow a greater diversity of players by helping facilitate smaller lot purchases.
TraceGains helps make it easier for brokers, distributors, and importers to do business faster, generate revenue, and manage their paperwork. The demands of the Food Safety and Modernization Act, the Global Food Safety Initiative, and multiple customers means increased documentation, and that can slow business to a crawl. That’s where TraceGains’ PassThru™ technology comes into play.
“Moving documents can be incredibly complex, and now brokers and distributors can use PassThru to easily move documents automatically from suppliers to the end customers,” TraceGains’ CEO Gary Nowacki explained.
“We went with PassThru to better serve our customers on a real-time basis,” said Dorothy Willingham, RN, MBA, Quality Manager/Occupational Health Nurse with John R. White Co. Inc.
PassThru is a key feature of TraceGains' Supplier Management and Customer Management software solutions. This effective combination allows a user to quickly select all documents that must be passed along the supply chain and distribute them to each of their customers, saving all parties both time and money.
“We’ve just started to use the PassThru function about two weeks ago, and it has definitely changed my day-to-day,” said Shirley Thomas, Operations, Doehler Group. “The items we ask the suppliers to provide ahead of time are easily available to us now, which makes our jobs to create business much quicker.”
“PassThru allows you to be faster, without sacrificing quality or control,” Nowacki added. “As a broker or a distributor, you map connections in TraceGains Network on both your upstream and downstream supply chain and TraceGains does all the rest of the work for you.”
