In this section

TraQtion’s specification management protects retailers and manufacturers from quality defects and allergen and other types of product recalls by tracking raw ingredients by product and batch across the product life cycle.

TraQtion allows you to:

  • Digitalize every version of your recipe: Centralize your recipe and ingredient data in digital format with TraQtion software. Version-stamp recipe amendments during the testing process. Store multiple versions of the final recipe.
  • Simplify formulation development: TraQtion’s specification software minimizes manual data entry and errors by using TraQtion software to integrate with standard ingredient databases. Let the system automatically calculate product, nutrition and allergen specifications and declarations when evaluated and finalized. When ingredients are replaced during testing, trialing and costing, let the system recalculate specifications and declarations. Lock away multiple versions of the recipe before the product goes to market.
  • Streamline the approval process: Digitally exchange information with your suppliers. Suppliers can log into an online portal to build supplier specification. Built-in workflow automates the specification approval process.
  • Control product quality: Coupled with TraQtion’s product quality module, you can be sure the product you are receiving matches what you paid for; compare and contrast inbound supplier specifications against your quality and safety standards before accepting shipment.


TraQtion provides these specification management features:

  • Improve digital recordkeeping: Create version-stamped digital material records that include nutrition and formulation, allergen and certification information. Archive records to maintain FSMA compliance and validate label claims.
