Global Batch Traceability - Product safety guaranteed

SAP GBT - Full insight into the chain

Logistic and production processes are becoming increasingly complex. How will you ascertain the origin, current location, and quality of products? SAP Global Batch Traceability (GBT) makes all movements and relevant features transparent, from raw material to packed product.

SAP GBT enables an effective and efficient analysis of complex chains. The batch management system does this by linking data from different sources and bringing them together in one system. Organizations have access to a single version of the truth. Using a powerful and fast search engine, users may, for example, quickly trace and recall poor quality products.

SAP GBT indispensable for quality assurance

SAP GBT provides insight, efficiency, and safety in complex supply chains in the food, agricultural, pharmaceutical, and chemical industries. GBT has been developed to deal with large amounts of data, and rapidly report on it. Thus, GBT offers a powerful tool to monitor quality, quickly detect problems, and report upon them easily.
