Technological tools

Attestra develops and offers agricultural producers and various stakeholders simple solutions for collecting and electronically transmitting traceability-related data. These solutions eliminate the use of paper, save time and money, and greatly reduce the risk of error.

To ensure the traceability of bovines, ovines, and cervids while simplifying your life, we offer you various tools compatible with RFID type identifiers.

RFID reader sticks and the SimpliTRACE Express and SimpliTRACE Mobile apps allow you to make your various declarations electronically and save them in SimpliTRACE.

SimpliTRACE Express

The SimpliTRACE Express app, developed by Attestra, allows for the transfer of ID numbers entered into the SimpliTRACE app using an electronic stick reader.

Easy to install, SimpliTRACE Express has been designed for use on a personal computer (PC). Once the stick reader is connected, the application collects the stored data and transfers it to SimpliTRACE. A free download from the Attestra website, this data import application is compatible with all stick readers sold by Attestra.

Opening a SimpliTRACE account is required in order to use SimpliTRACE Express, i.e. you must have a username and password. If you do not have a SimpliTRACE account, contact one of our Attestra customer service agents at 1 866 270-4319.
