Product Recall Management Helps Protect Your Brand with Defect Detection and Traceability
Protect your brand by quickly pinpointing quality issues and taking decisive action. With e2open Recall Management, you can analyze goods for potential failures, identify the source of any defects, locate and quarantine the affected goods, and respond quickly with surgically precise recalls.
Brand owners lack the speed and visibility to detect issues quickly
The continued rise in outsourcing and the variability of raw materials has led to an increasing number of defective goods. When you add in the complex nature of global supply chains, it becomes obvious that identifying quality issues can feel like finding a needle in the figurative haystack. Unfortunately, the inability to identify defective goods and respond quickly can lead to costly recalls and brand damage—and even danger to consumers.
Identify defects, locate the source, respond rapidly
Recall Management gives you the ability to pinpoint the root cause of defects quickly, so you can prevent future recalls.
Identify failure patterns
You can build material and process genealogies to track patterns by leveraging transactional updates from backend manufacturing execution systems.
Simulate multiple recall scenarios
Flexible and configurable data models help you simulate various scenarios to optimize the recall process across your entire supply chain while minimizing disruptions.
Create unique recall workflows
Every recall is different, and coordinating with partners is essential. You can create workflows and business rules to establish a recall process tailored for each situation.
Preemptively identify issues
Chain-of-custody visibility enables you to track manufacturing deviations, failures, and other important factors across your end-to-end supply chain.
Quickly generate insights
You can easily go from data to insights using robust reporting capabilities with transactional KPI metrics, cycle time reports, and variance reports.
Mitigate brand damage
By identifying defects early and pinpointing their source, you can minimize the potential damage from quality issues and defective products.
