SYSPRO Welcomes Senate’s Passage of US Food Safety Bill

SYSPRO Software Functionality Facilitates Bill Compliance

COSTA MESA, Calif. (December 02, 2010) – SYSPRO, the leading provider of visionary, pragmatic ERP (ERP) software, today announced that the company welcomes the passage of the US Food Safety Bill by the US Senate, noting that functionality within SYSPRO ERP is fully supportive of the bill’s key provisions. The bill would give the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), among other regulatory responsibilities, the authority to order recalls if a company fails to act on its own, would increase the frequency of inspections of high-risk food processing facilities and force companies to recall tainted food. The need to trace food ingredients and instigate recalls was made even more critical by the recent widespread Salmonella outbreaks in peanuts, eggs and produce.

SYSPRO ERP software offers extensive traceability capabilities as well as other functionalities that facilitate the ability of manufacturers to trace products from origin, through the manufacturing process, to their ultimate destination, fully maintaining assurance certification and tracking expiration dates.

SYSPRO optionally allows specific traceable components to be reserved for specific work-orders, as well as providing the flexibility of specifying the parent traceable numbers at the beginning, during or the end of the manufacturing process.

SYSPRO lot traceability and serial tracking functionality afford extensive visibility up or down the chain, as well as providing specific component to parent tracking, thereby providing the means to expedite recalls, should the need arise.

According to SYSPRO USA President Joey Benadretti, “The passage of the US Food Safety bill was delayed due to the concern that it might place a financial burden on smaller food manufacturers. However, the implementation of low-cost SYSPRO software would not only enable the smaller manufacturers to abide by the bill’s provisions, but it would also enable them to boost profits through the adoption of most efficient practices from accounting to purchasing to manufacturing and throughout their supply chains.”
