Quality & Compliance

Currently operating in Meat, Fish & Food Processing plants around the world

Quality & Compliance Software

Emydex Quality & Compliance Software is currently operating in over a dozen Meat, Fish & Food Processing plants around the world, including Ireland, the UK and Africa, providing Emydex customers including the Kepak Group, Dawn Meats Group, Dunbia Group, Euro Quality Lambs and La Rousse Foods with a robust Food Safety and Quality Management System. The Quality module (Food Safety Management System) can operate as an integrated part of the overall Emydex platform or as a totally stand-alone Quality system.

The Emydex Quality module includes a Quality survey builder using which the Emydex configuration team or customers themselves can design and build electronic surveys to replace their traditional paper-based Quality surveys. 

Quality data capture can take place either on an existing fixed position PC terminal on the factory floor e.g., on an Intake station, or on a mobile Toughbook device that enables a variety of Quality surveys to be captured throughout all Wi-Fi enabled locations within the factory or even low-cost tablet devices running the Windows 10 operating system. All Quality and compliance data captured is stored centrally in the Emydex core system allowing scheduling, analysis and reporting on survey results by supervisors and management.

A range of more complex Emydex designed surveys are also available for activity-specific quality inspections including Offal and Carcass inspections, Ante-mortem checks, as well as Liver, Lungs and Pregnancy health checks.

“One differentiator with Emydex over the other factory floor systems we evaluated was the ability and ease with which the Emydex system can be modified and configured to work in line with our existing EQL business processes. We had many new ideas that we wanted to incorporate into our new system. The flexibility inherent in Emydex means everything is possible” Rizvan Khalid (Senior Director) Euro Quality Lambs
