Using GAO RFID Systems in the Animal Slaughtering and Processing Industry

GAO RFID Animal Slaughtering and Processing Services ensures that your assets are managed appropriately to allow for optimum efficiency at your facility. Every stage of animal slaughtering and processing is integral to ensuring quality of product. Now you have more visibility of assets, inventory, and the premises than ever before – thereby ensuring prompt and professional oversight.

Monitor the Processing of Animal Carcasses

When an animal arrives at your facility, our RFID Asset Tracking System will tag the livestock with an RFID Animal Tag to be read with a handheld reader. Your facility will be equipped with specific fixed RFID Readers. Once the animal has been slaughtered and throughout processing, at each of these readers, the information captured will be immediately sent to management. Should an inspector find a problem with an animal carcass, it can be identified and located easily.

Monitor the Processing of Meat

Throughout your facility, you want to ensure that you can adequately access any meat cuts you are processing in the event of a quality control check, an emergency, or simply an exercise in location. Through using RFID Tags, you can easily track beef or other meat as it is processed in your production line. The system also maintains a record of what animals are packaged and shipped out, as well as the immediate location of any items in the database for quick tracking of inventory.

Equipment Maintenance

There is critical equipment involved in animal slaughtering and meat processing, and we understand that this equipment needs to be kept thoroughly clean and in a fully functional state at all times. With our Asset Tracking System, you can monitor each equipment’s maintenance history, set automatic alerts to notify you when maintenance is due, and keep an electronic paper trail of all work completed. Automating maintenance scheduling ensures that equipment is kept in a functioning order at all times – thereby cutting down on possible down time and reducing any safety risks.

Security of Premises

No one wants unauthorized users to be entering into an animal slaughterhouse. Through our Access Control System, you can guard against unauthorized access through the distribution of personnel badges to your employees. Not only do these badges grant access; they also allow you to monitor your employees’ time while on-site. When they enter or exit, this information will be automatically recorded and can even be integrated with your existing payroll system to simplify administration tasks.
