Organization Profile

Mar-Jac Poultry is a fully integrated poultry processor serving the domestic food service industry. This integration affords Mar-Jac Poultry total quality process control throughout the production process from the farm to the table. Mar-Jac Poultry ships their poultry products worldwide and is fully committed to food safety and quality assurance.

Mar-Jac Poultry was founded by brothers Marvin and Jack McKibbon in 1954 to serve a cooperative of poultry growers in northeast Georgia. Since that time, numerous changes, improvements, and expansions have taken place. The company was consolidated under its current ownership in 1984. Production has expanded from 450,000 birds per week in the 1980s to more than 1 million per week in the 1990s and over 2 million per week today.

Their Challenge

Mar-Jac Poultry Science and Technology Laboratory decided to transition from a paper- based, manual system to an automated system. Their primary criteria for a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) was one that could be easily configured to meet their data management needs.

I wanted to let you know that the Support team at Confience is second to none. Your team provides great service and is extremely customer focused. Confience’s support team should be the standard for other companies.

Our Solution

After evaluating several different LIMS demonstrations, the Mar-Jac Poultry Science and Technology Laboratory purchased Confience’s Sample Master LIMS. They found one major benefit to be reporting - the freedom to create laboratory reports and the versatility to modify canned reports. With Sample Master, users who are not IT experts can create sophisticated reports with a click of the mouse.

In addition to the QA/QC module, for more advanced statistics, Mar-Jac Poultry incorporated Northwest Analytical’s SPC software technology into Sample Master. This functionality offers embedded SPC capabilities, allowing Mar-Jac Poultry users to create SPC charts from their LIMS data.

Mar-Jac Poultry is also pleased with the support they have received from Confience. Support includes free product upgrades, unlimited technical support, access to Confience’s Support website (service packs, white papers, frequently asked questions, training videos, news, and more), user group meetings, LIMS Solutions newsletter, and an assigned LIMS Account Manager to provide customers with a single point of contact for swift response and solution management.

Confience is driven by the mission to provide automated lab management and data their customers can act on to build trusted products and a thriving planet. The result of a recently announced merger between Accelerated Technology Laboratories (ATL) and Quality Systems International (QSI), Confience offers LIMS solutions that empower lab and quality managers to accurately gather, analyze, report data, work efficiently and intuitively, meet compliance goals, and exceed business objectives.
