11 features that will save you time and costs
while ensuring ongoing compliance

iMonitor’s manufacturing software is the intelligent operating system for your production floor, digitizing all quality monitoring and production management processes end to end, from delivery of raw ingredients to dispatch of the final product. As a food or pharmaceutical manufacturer, you can increase operational efficiency, gain real-time operational insights, and get full visibility of your business’s quality, safety, and compliance status.

The missing link in quality and production management
Many food and pharmaceutical manufacturers still rely on paper-based checklists and manual recording as part of their quality and production management on the production floor. iMonitor’s smart manufacturing software closes this gap by digitizing all quality checks and production management processes and creating smart workflows. This enables manufacturers to fully digitize their product and operator task management, achieving full traceability of products, processes, and other traceable details, amongst others.


End-to-end traceability of products, ingredients, and traceable details

By assigning a batch number for each process or product, iMonitor’s smart manufacturing software provides digitized traceability of products, their sensitive ingredients, and traceable details, such as date of delivery, delivery temperatures and process CCP’s, end to end. iMonitor’s flexible and easy to use search feature enables you to trace and narrow down on SKUs, processes, batches, ingredients, machinery, steps and data captured across anywhere in the application in seconds.

Comprehensive product database
iMonitor also allows for the creation of a comprehensive digital product database, including all product ingredients, product packaging and other traceable details.

Scan and print QR codes & barcodes
Reduce manual entries by simply scanning QR codes with a tablet device, prepopulating data that is stored in the code automatically. The QR code labels help streamline how ingredients and packaging are prepared and added during a batch.

QR codes for ingredient, equipment and batch labels can be printed for exact identification of intermediate and end products via a Bluetooth printer connected to the operator tablet that is used to capture data. You can customize the label information stored in the code, with the option to print multiple copies of labels with a unique QR code.

Digital asset management
You can attach the printed QR codes to your assets to easily identify, track and trace them in your facility.


Digitized product management

The digital product management feature helps you completely digitise your product development and manufacturing management. This allows for managing product differentiators such as gluten-free from the start, and for triggering processes based on these elements.

Product development
Create a SKU with manufacturing processes and easily generate multiple clones to digitize your product management. Break down a large batch that cannot be processed at once into smaller production runs called sub-batches as per GMP standards.

Digital bill of materials
Centrally store ingredients and packaging information for each product. Easily reference these while creating processes to capture information used in the product recipe.

You can generate a digital bill of materials for the production run by creating digital recipes for each product, including all ingredients and their composition. Automatically distribute the bill of materials to each sub-batch when breaking up large production batches into small batches. iMonitor calculates the correct composition of ingredients for each production run automatically, generating picklists for each stage, and returning a yield calculation.

Allergen database
Within iMonitor, you can also create a comprehensive digital allergen database for all your products.


Digital supplier database

iMonitor’s supplier management feature allows you to connect digitally with your supply chain.

Management of non-conformances
