TRAX-IT® Slaughterhouse Software Systems

TRAX-IT Slaughterhouse software is a powerful business management tool which we customize to enhance your existing business processes instead of forcing you to change your business processes to suit the software.

Our software helps slaughterhouses find the true cost and margins made from their livestock purchases, by tracking from the supplier lot, or farm of origin, through the slaughterhouse to the customer. By doing this we can show you exactly how much of what you spend is turned into profit, and what’s not being used.

Are you worried about losing money with the cattle you purchased because you don’t know how much sellable meat you are producing with your current Slaughterhouse Software?

“Our software system is designed to provide better cut yield information and eliminate that worry.”

We can maintain the identity of the carcasses and supplier lots from reception to the boxed meat. This allows slaughterhouses to determine their true carcass utilization and cost. With this data, you are able to see which suppliers are generating your best yields and overall value, and by using the cut out prices, you can compare your potential sales revenue and margins with your actual revenue and margins, per invoice. Wouldn’t you want to know how well your business is performing without having to spend all that time with Excel? 


We can provide a complete ERP system or individual modules which can be customized and integrated with your existing systems to solve specific problems.

Is there a component missing from your current Slaughterhouse Software that could maximize its value for you?

"We can value add an individual module to help fill the gaps so there won't be any holes in your Slaughterhouse Software System"

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many of our small to medium size slaughterhouse customers have experienced increased customer demand, while having to deal with labor shortages and 'lack of experience' issues.

To Help with these problems, Merit-Trax Technologies Inc. has worked with our customers to make changes to their operating procedures, which in conjunction with the Artificial Intelligence software modifications that we made for them, has enabled them to meet the increased demand with fewer staff.

As an example of this, we modified some of our customers box packing procedures so it would make it easier to identify the products being packed at the scale with less of an operator responsibility. 


Our slaughterhouse software systems uses our award-winning 

traceability technology in innovative ways to improve operations while integrating data collection needs for planning, purchasing, production, sales and distribution, quality assurance, food safety and traceability.


Data is collected in real-time using rugged handheld and touch screen

computers over a secure wireless network, making the data instantly 

available to track and manage production.

Managers and floor operators are alerted in advance when a quality assurance or food safety issue is about to occur.


Our Slaughterhouse Software systems reports allows you to follow the slaughter production on the kill floor in real-time from desktop computers in the office by the Receive Number, Kill Lot Number and Animal Number, using the following TRAX-IT desktop programs:

  • Animal Master
  • Animal Kill Sheet
  • Animal Receiving
  • Daily Summary
  • Animal Grading
  • Animal Weight
  • Animal Time
  • Yield


Our software helps to meet FSMA and SFCR requirements.

The FDA has finalized and integrated seven major rules to implement FSMA, recognizing that ensuring the safety of the food supply is a shared responsibility among many different points in the global food supply chain.

The FSMA rules are designed to make clear specific actions that

must be taken critical points to prevent contamination and ensure easier traceability.

The Safe Food for Canadians Regulations (SFCR) were designed to improve food product quality and safety for Canadian customers. To be licensed, companies must have a rigorous food safety program based on the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) methodology.

These food safety regulations are continually being updated and having boosted rules added to be enforced.

When it comes to the food business and consumers, they want to know

that they can trust the companies that are supplying the public.

Not only is having software that meets traceability and regulation requirements a way to establish that consumer confidence, but it is also bottom line proficient in helping you make the best production decisions to maximise potential profit and proficiency.

For Canadian slaughterhouses, the registration of Canadian CLTS tag retirement events automatically over the internet.


For Canadian slaughterhouses and USA slaughterhouses that process Canadian cattle, the retrieval of Canadian animal birthdates in real-time, using the CCIA Age Replicated database.
