Shortly after Trace First was founded in 2007, we decided to create our own software system from scratch to encompass all of our experience having implemented animal health and traceability systems since 1990. We decided on a completely new product to be absolutely sure we were using modern web development technologies so that we would have a fast, secure and user-friendly system from the outset.

We began working on building a prototype which we market tested before completing the necessary development work to allow us to release version 1 in 2008. Since then, we have continually invested in CoreOne's capabilities to make it the benchmark for governments wishing to retire legacy systems and replace them with an off-the-shelf product that meets their animal health surveillance and traceability needs.


CoreOne is the Central Nervous System for your organization; it is your "go-to" database containing all the farms, slaughter plants, markets and other locations in your state.
