We are pleased to announce the latest enhancement to the platform now means users can conduct vertical audits of products and materials within seconds.
Traceability exercises and audits are an important component of GFSI audits which require food businesses to show full oversight of all products and materials through all stages of processing and dispatch, both forwards and backward.
Conducting these track and trace exercises is often a time-consuming activity and requires significant resources from the food business.
Typically these records are maintained in binders or folders which quickly accumulate and sourcing can take hours, if not days, depending on the efficiency of the record-keeping system in place and the resources dedicated to the task.
During a GFSI audit, the time available to produce these records is limited before a nonconformance is received, for example, the BRCGS allows a maximum of 4 hours to complete this action.
When internal audits are being conducted, this means time is spent on an activity that is non-value adding and could be applied elsewhere within the organization for a greater benefit.
We are pleased to reveal the latest enhancement to our solution is now available and resolves all of the above issues with no additional work required from users.
