Food Safety Chain Management Solution: The Next Generation
Just ahead of this week's Food Safety Summit, SafetyChain Software has introduced the next-generation version of its food safety chain management system (FSCMS), SafetyChain for Food. The new version provides several enhancements to address the ever-increasing complexities of global food safety and quality assurance (FSQA), including:
Cross-functional document management: Documents can be easily organized and sorted, through role-based view dashboards, for any regulatory, FSQA program or supplier compliance need, such as a regulatory agency or customer audit, or a HACCP/HARPC review.
Step-by-step FSQA process management: New levels of granularity have been added to how FSQA processes are defined in the system – including the ability to define every criterion, for every test – and associated corrective/preventive actions (CAPAs) based upon results. .
Immediate mobile corrective actions: SafetyChain Mobile not only will allow FSQA data/forms to be entered in-field, in-plant, in-transit, and in-store via mobile devices, but also will evaluate safety and quality test results in real time, enforcing immediate corrective actions for non-conformances.
Enhanced integrated portals for approved supplier management programs: The new version offers greater flexibility for the ways in which suppliers, as part of a company’s approved vendor program, can upload FSQA documents, do document approval online, fill out/submit forms and maintain a secure online dialog. In addition to auto-notifications when documents are due, the documents become a part of the total FSQA centralized database, thereby ensuring audit readiness.
