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, Aberdeen Group. "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."
