Our Germanedge Traceability software enables accurate monitoring of product quality across the entire value chain. This allows companies to identify quality issues early on and take action to remove defective products from circulation. By automating traceability processes, companies can save time and resources. This leads to more efficient operations and faster response to supply chain issues.
The software facilitates documentation and compliance with regulatory requirements and industry standards such as ISO 9001, VDA 6.2, IEC. This is especially important in industries with stringent regulatory requirements.
Customers appreciate being able to trace the origin and characteristics of products. Product data traceability software provides transparency and ensures traceability of the manufacturing process, including the materials and process conditions used. This increases customer confidence and provides the ability to respond to questions about product origin and quality.
With our software, you can better identify and assess potential risks in the supply chain. This enables you to proactively respond to risks and minimize business impact. In the event of quality breakdowns with costly returns processing or recalls, the traceability system is essential. In the case of product liability, you can prove all relevant data and thus minimize costs and effort.
In some industries, certain regulations and quality standards must be observed. The software helps to monitor compliance with these regulations and issue warnings when necessary. In addition, of course, the protection of the collected data is crucial. The software can provide security mechanisms such as access controls and encryption to prevent unauthorized access.
Our traceability system can collect data about products throughout their lifecycle. Products are marked by barcodes, QR codes, RFID tags or other marking methods. Efficient data collection collects product information about manufacturing, storage, transportation and sales – this is for example further information about batch numbers, production dates, storage locations and more. The software is also able to generate alerts and notifications when irregularities or problems occur in the supply chain.
Through our Germanedge traceability software, it is possible to trace products backwards. This is crucial in production, as it enables our software to show the origin of a particular product and all the steps it has gone through, all the way to the end customer or distributor. Likewise, the software is able to keep a comprehensive history of all transactions and product movements to ensure full traceability.
Moreover, you can also create custom reports in the software to show important information about product movements and histories. This facilitates monitoring and analysis of trends and issues.
Our software solution is able to handle the growth of your business and the increasing number of products. In addition, the traceability system can also be seamlessly integrated with other systems, such as warehouse management systems (WMS), enterprise resource planning (ERP) and Produktionsplanungssysteme (MES) to facilitate data exchange.

Und Sie haben Zugriff auf existierende Teil-, Kunden- und Lieferantenstammdaten.
Ihre Mitarbeitenden erhalten über ein Online-Portal weltweiten Zugriff auf alle Daten. So können sie schneller Entscheidungen über Geschäftsprozesse und Produktinformationen treffen und verkürzen die Markteinführungszeit. Mit der Germanedge Traceability-Software ist ein zeitnaher Austausch zwischen Zuliefern und Konzeptions-, Produktentwicklungs-, Planungs-, Konstruktions-, Fertigungsbereichen möglich.
Step-by-step instructions on how to proceed if you are interested in the software:
Traceability software helps your company prove when, where and how your products were manufactured or installed. This is how you ensure product liability and compliance with standards.
When you implement traceability software in your company, you ensure complete traceability and can put customer satisfaction at the center of all quality efforts. As a result, you increase added value and production speed, understand all processes, and reduce costs.
The software facilitates documentation and compliance with regulatory requirements and industry standards such as ISO 9001, VDA 6.2, IEC, ISO 26262, Automotive SPICE and EN50128. This is particularly important in industries with strict regulatory requirements, such as the food industry, where EU Regulation 178/2002 plays a key role – with our software, you ensure that this regulation is complied with and that the safety and wholesomeness of foodstuffs meet the high standards.
With traceability software, you monitor the origin and history of your products and document them. Among other things, the software performs the following tasks for you:
Data capture: the software captures and stores comprehensive information about products, including origin, batch numbers, production date, supplier information and quality characteristics.
Traceability: It enables seamless tracing of a product along the entire value chain, starting with the raw materials and ending with the end customer. This also includes the tracking of intermediate products and assemblies.
Real-time monitoring: The software continuously monitors the status and location of products in real time. This enables an immediate response to deviations or quality problems.
Batch management: It supports the management of product batches and enables the rapid identification and isolation of defective batches to minimize recalls.
Documentation: The software automatically creates records and documentation required for compliance with regulations and standards. This includes the creation of audit trail logs.
Notifications and alerts: In the event of quality issues or deviations from established standards, the software can immediately send notifications and alerts to relevant individuals or teams.
Analysis and reporting: it provides analytical tools and allows reports to be generated to identify trends, bottlenecks and optimization opportunities in the supply chain.Compliance management: It supports compliance with regulations and standards by providing checklists, workflows and automated audits.
Customer communication: It facilitates communication with customers and enables companies to efficiently respond to customer inquiries about product origin, quality, or traceability.
Integration with other systems: The software can be integrated with other enterprise systems such as ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) or SCM (Supply Chain Management) to seamlessly share data and optimize business processes.
Security and data protection: It ensures data protection-compliant storage and protection of sensitive product data from unauthorized access.
Lack of transparency: Without such software, it is difficult to ensure a transparent view of the supply chain and the origin of products. This can affect customer confidence, as they cannot be sure where products come from or how they were made.
Slower response to quality issues: The lack of real-time monitoring and traceability makes it difficult to quickly identify and isolate quality issues. This can lead to longer recalls, which are less targeted with software, and higher costs.
Compliance risks: Companies can struggle to comply with regulatory requirements and industry standards because documentation and tracking can be manual and inaccurate. This can lead to legal risks and penalties.
Inefficient operations: without automation and a clear view of the value chain, operations can be inefficient. This can lead to higher costs, longer delivery times and reduced competitiveness.
Poor crisis management: In cases of crisis or emergency, such as product recalls or safety issues, the lack of effective product data tracking software can significantly impact the company’s response time and capability.
Difficulty identifying bottlenecks and areas for optimization: Without the ability to analyze data and generate reports, companies may have difficulty identifying bottlenecks or areas for improvement in their supply chain.
Manual errors: manual data collection and management is prone to human error, which can lead to incorrect information and delays.
Lack of competitiveness: In a global business environment where customers and partners expect high visibility and efficiency in the supply chain, the lack of traceability software can cause companies to lose out and become less competitive.
The traceability software integrates your product and process data and provides targeted support for your business decisions. In addition, your employees can easily access the software and flexibly design analyses. The integrated action management reduces errors, rework and warranty cases and promotes “first time quality”. Likewise, traceability results and measured values are available to you simultaneously in the traceability software.
