Best-in-class traceability solutions for manufacturing businesses
Dublin and Tralee, 17 August 2016
Diomac, an Irish technology company specialising in fully integrated manufacturing software solutions has today announced a collaboration agreement with GS1 Ireland.
Through GS1 Ireland’s Solution Provider Programme both companies will work to enhance the capabilities of Irish food production companies and to enable them to grow and develop their businesses while meeting the ever-increasing product information requirements of both domestic and international regulators and customers.
In a growing business, a complete production and financial traceability system is key to optimising productivity and profits while also ensuring full transparency throughout the supply chain. The challenge for many businesses is to find a user- friendly system that works within their organisation but which also adheres to globally recognised standards.
Speaking about the partnership, Noel Carr, Managing Director of Diomac said, “Diomac is focused on delivering a single IT platform for manufacturing businesses which satisfies all of their factory floor data capture, traceability, accounting and management reporting requirements. Our collaboration with GS1 and the adoption of international barcoding standards will ensure that Diomac’s software solution allows businesses to identify, capture and share information about their products in a fast and seamless manner.”
Mike Byrne, GS1 Ireland’s Chief Executive Officer commented, “the objective of GS1 Ireland’s Solution Provider Programme is to build collaborative relationships with suppliers of products, services or solutions that promote GS1 standards for the benefit of our 3,000 members in Ireland. I am delighted to welcome Diomac as a partner in the Programme; our collaboration will ensure the seamless integration of GS1 standards in Diomac’s software solutions thus enabling our Members to meet their ever-evolving traceability, production and accounting requirements”.
Diomac have recognised the intrinsic value of GS1 standards in meeting this challenge and have incorporated key components of the GS1 system of standards in their software solution. In 2014, as part of the E-LOCATE initiative, Diomac worked closely with GS1, BIM, the SFPA and several Irish fish processing companies, including Sofrimar and Normandy Ireland, to implement a tailored solution that meets the stringent traceability, labelling and reporting compliance requirements of the fish industry.
Ireland’s national food strategy is based on its quality, sustainability and traceability credentials. These credentials are maintained and validated through continuous process checking and auditing - the adoption of digital technology solutions is vital to achieving this effectively and efficiently.
