At SI (Systems Integration), we really understand how abattoir operations work. That’s why we’ve been able to develop abattoir management software that’s become the leader in its field for operating within this challenging environment.
By applying our technology, we’re helping our abattoir and meat processing customers be the best that they can be, and achieve the highest possible margins.
SI’s abattoir software manages every stage of an abattoir’s operations. And, as the level of tacit knowledge that’s required to operate our system is much lower than competitive software, the margin for operator error is minimised. By taking all the operational complexity and putting it into the software, we’ve made the process simple and efficient.
Abattoir management software that delivers efficiency and improves profitability
Amongst ERP providers it’s rare to find their technicians who have direct industry experience. That’s one of the big differences with SI; our technicians have direct experience of working within abattoirs, going back more than 26 years. We don’t need to be be told how abattoir processing works..
SI knows the perishable food processing industry inside out, and our heritage stems from the meat industry. In fact, in terms of beef kill, our software manages a high proportion of the beef kill in the UK market.
We are also the largest supplier to abattoirs within Scotland.
Helping abattoirs to be more profitable
An abattoir will make more money if it has a greater understanding of its different livestock sources and can negotiate better prices.
All abattoir software should be able to manage the basics; buy animals, grade them, price them, pay the farmers and label the carcasses for traceability.
What sets SI’s food software apart is the built-in additional functionality that improves the abattoir’s decision-making process. These features enable abattoirs to purchase animals more economically, process them more efficiently, resulting in improved profit margins.
With SI, by applying our reporting and analysis tools across the livestock supply chain, abattoirs can see the variation of the base price used and the price offsets for grade, no matter how many different farms an abattoir purchases from each year. This can reveal:
- which farmer produces the lowest cost animal at a specified grade
- the farmers that provided the best return, i.e. the ones that provided the best quality animals and lowest possible price
- which farmers produce better grades and poorer grade animals
- the farmers that provided the worst animal at the most expensive price
- which animals and from which farms had health problems
Through the use of our tracker systems, abattoirs can review this data and present it in a form that’s visible across its operations.
Our software can manage every stage of your abattoir operations.
From the moment the livestock arrives at the abattoir, it ensures accurate information is recorded at every stage in real-time, taking into account the strict and extensive legislation governing abattoirs, to ensure complete traceability.
When cattle passports need to be scanned, veterinary conditions and lairages need to be recorded, through to selection, weighing, queuing and grading, SI has developed abattoir management software for every stage.
Integreater’s abattoir management software has been developed to manage all of these stages.
Our Kill Schedule module enables profiles to be created that break the kill quantity down, by percentages and by specification and also creates weekly schedules based on the daily profiles.
Integreater also uses the Euro grid grading system and incorporates our own livestock payment system.
Within an abattoir, the only effective way to deliver automation is by the application of specialist software, delivered by experts who understand the environment it needs to operate within. SI already supplies a high proportion of British abattoirs and some of the largest meat producers throughout the UK, Canada and USA.
