The Ovotrack support department is outstanding and supportive. They’re more of a partner than a vendor.
Because they only serve the egg industry, most changes that we require are of interest to them, as these could be useful to some of their other customers as well.
Marion Hostetler, Mid-States Specialty Eggs – USA
In the past, the two locations had to be in constant communication. A great deal of manual stock counting was required, too. We have now almost completely dispensed with that. Furthermore, paperwork used to get lost. Now, we just scan goods in and out at both sites. I like the fact that traceability is now completely automated. It doesn’t matter who shipped a pallet originally produced at Elliott’s: traceability information including all producers and dates-of-lay on the pallets can be found in both databases.
Mark Elliott, K. Fresh & Elliott Eggs – United Kingdom
We want to inform our farmers about the grading results very soon, if possible the day after we collected the eggs.
Because Ovotrack is connected to our producer web portal we can manage that.
Peter Chignell, Chippendale Foods – United Kingdom
One man has to feed three grading machine and we do need correct grading results. That’s why we introduced Ovotrack in our operation. Ovotrack takes care of the information flow from receiving eggs until grading them. By doing that we also get up-to-date stock position of ungraded eggs.
Ronald van Beek, Gebr. Van Beek – the Netherlands
As we are grading only organics eggs the flock size of our farmers is very low. As a result we grade a lot of batches of eggs each day. In fact each case of 360 eggs is a different batch. And with Ovotrack we follow these batches until delivery to the retailer.
Jonas Reinhard, Hosberg AG – Switzerland
We are delivering eggs direct into the shop. And I want to have the highest possible level of traceability whilst using the latest technology to also reduce manual paper work. That’s why we use handhelds for our salesman / van drivers to scan the Ovotrack labels during delivery.
Dermot Herlihy, Belview Eggs – Ireland
Transparency and traceability is vital both for our company and for our customers. The integration of the Ovotrack loader scanning and case labelling with our Moba Omnia grading machine is a logical addition to our egg processing plant.
Michael Guthrie, Zeagold Foods – New Zealand
We are producing a huge amount of different products and we have a lot of automation to help us with that. That makes it very difficult to get each product labelled correctly and to also keep track of which eggs are in each box. But with Ovotrack we can.
