Traceability, Real-time Tracking and Information Exchange

  • Track real-time responses to your redistributed recall notifications online, through automatic reporting of time-stamped recall receipts and ‘Returned Product’ reports. This increases visibility around who has seen the recall, who has actioned it, and how many of the affected products have been identified and removed.
  • See a history of the recall activity from all trading partners, including how many recalls you have received in total and the amount of recalled product you have in stock for each recall
  • Acknowledge and send read receipts to brand owner
  • Ability to exchange notes, and send questions or comments to the brand owner
  • Report back to brand owner the number of products being recalled from your organization

Easy Distribution to Your Internal Locations

  • Internal Locations Distribution is an optional premium feature that enables you to easily forward recall notifications to your related locations (such as pharmacy or restaurant chain locations, warehouses or other facilities), rather than contacting each location individually. This enables you to remove the recalled product from all your locations as efficiently as possible.
