It also allows you to set up password-protected fields to restrict viewing and editing capabilities to certain users. Includes full historical tracking and user usage.

Not only is WinFDS® secure, but it is also fully compliant to FDA Food Safety Modernization Act with full product traceability and lot control. There is also HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) control for inbound/receiving and outbound/shipping. Lastly, hazardous material products can also be identified, tracked, and controlled within our software.
