Our strength is end to end tracking:
Lot and Serial Number Control
Lot and/or serial numbers can be read from barcodes on receiving or assigned when materials arrive. GS1-128 Labels can be printed for each unit, case and/or skid. Lot numbers are captured when raw materials are picked for production, so the lot numbers going into a batch or production room are tracked. Full track and trace and aggregation of unit into case etc.
Tracking QC information is a natural extension of lot tracking. Most QC testing is done on a batch basis. The ability to store the test results for producing Certificate of Analysis or just for GFSI or auditor record keeping, means you’ll be able to quickly identify out of spec batches and review testing information should there be an issue.
More than just a field for entering a lot number, Minotaur verifies every transaction to ensure it is possible. For example, Minotaur won’t let you use a lot number you never received or had already consumed. We won’t let you ship a lot number that you didn’t make or ship more than you had in stock. Logical controlled transaction entries, catching issues while you can correct them.
Trace Forwards & Backwards
Trace all your item lot numbers one up and one down the supply chain. Traceability can include raw materials, interim lot numbers on WIP items & finished good items. Whether you need to recall due to a supplier raw materials issue or if you are performing a mock or actual recall of finished products, Minotaur is capable of providing a full history of each lot or serial controlled item.
What else can the program do?
Sales & Marketing (Order Entry/Invoicing and Rebates)
Sales drives business growth. Getting orders right builds your reputation and saves on credits, bill backs and fines. Minotaur helps you manage sales from order to invoice and tracks commissions for brokers and rebate programs for your customers. Whether you receive orders by phone, fax, email, EDI (electronically) or through on the road sales reps, live inventory status, credit status, buying history and fast automated order templates by customer help you get it right every time.
From purchasing through manufacturing and storage, you’ll come to trust the inventory numbers within Minotaur. Manage movement of items in one or multiple sites through workstation or tablet entry, EDI or by scanning with the Minotaur WMS (warehouse management system). Having control of your inventory means you can make better buying decisions and only buy what you truly need. Not just item counts, with Minotaur you can track expiry dates, lot numbers, allergens and more.
