SafetyChain Software has acquired Vigilistics, Inc., a provider of quality, profitability and sustainability solutions for food and beverage manufacturers.

Vigilistics’ manufacturing solutions are an ideal complement to SafetyChain’s food safety and quality management solutions. While each company’s focus has been on different aspects of the food and beverage industry’s operations, both companies’ solutions help companies increase operational visibility and optimize performance.

The Vigilistics acquisition will add three key capabilities to the SafetyChain solution suite:

  1. Equipment data integration – patented technology for capturing data from Programmable Logic Controllers will allow customers to have equipment data integrated into the SafetyChain system.
  2. Data visualization – expertise and solutions for robust data visualization will give greater insight and analysis of large volumes of data.
  3. Expanded functionality – deepens SafetyChain’s core food safety capabilities and expands functionality for receiving, material loss, inspections and sanitization.

“Vigilistics is excited to join SafetyChain with their deep expertise and commitment in helping the food industry more effectively manage food safety & quality operations,” says Mike Stephens, Vigilistics CEO.  “Vigilistics provides the perfect complement to SafetyChain’s comprehensive food safety and management solutions as our solutions are fast to implement, deliver increased operational visibility, robust analytics, and hard-dollar ROI.”
