SafetyChain Software has said the acquisition of Vigilistics will boost visibility, analytics and data extraction technology.

While each company's focus has been on different aspects of the food and beverage industry's operations, both help firms increase operational visibility and optimize performance.

Companies use SafetyChain systems to manage food safety, quality and supplier compliance to mitigate risks, reduce costs and improve food safety and quality assurance (FSQA) operations.

Vigilistics drives quality, profitability and sustainability for food and beverage manufacturers by monitoring, analyzing and reporting process operations.

Barry Maxon, SafetyChain president, said the acquisition provides another level of depth and breadth to food safety and quality management.

“Customers want better ways to unlock data. With Vigilistics, our customers will gain greater visibility into their operations, and help them further mitigate risks and lower the cost of quality."

The acquisition will add three key capabilities, said SafetyChain.

Patented technology for capturing data from PLCs (Programmable Logic Controllers) will allow customers to have equipment data integrated into the SafetyChain system, robust data visualization will give greater insight and analysis of large volumes of data and expanded functionality for receiving, material loss, inspections and sanitization.

Mike Stephens, Vigilistics CEO, said: “Vigilistics provides the perfect complement to SafetyChain's comprehensive food safety and management solutions as our solutions are fast to implement, deliver increased operational visibility, robust analytics, and hard-dollar ROI."
