Finesse Mills Leverages SafetyChain Software to Automate, Streamline and Make Continuous Improvements to Food Safety & Quality Assurance

Rapidly Growing Central California Company Latest Customer to Select and Go Live With SafetyChain for Food™ Cloud-Based FSQA Solutions

SAN RAFAEL, CA--(Marketwired - June 04, 2013) -  SafetyChain Software™, (www.safetychain.com) the leader in Food Safety Chain Management™ solutions that help ensure food safety and quality assurance (FSQA) and compliance for regulatory, 3rd party and customer requirements -- while also creating operational efficiencies that save time and money -- is very pleased to announce that Finesse Mills, a rapidly expanding milling, bulk packing and tea bagging service company headquartered in Watsonville, CA, is the latest new customer to select, deploy and go live with SafetyChain for Food™ to automate, streamline and make continuous improvements in its FSQA programs.

Finesse Mills' key business drivers for leveraging FSQA technology innovations include the ability to:

  • Implement a pro-active, automated food safety and quality program that minimized resources required for manual, error-prone processes – "have FSQA staff analyzing vs. entering data"
  • Improve control over -- and streamline -- FSQA processes
  • Be able to respond "on-demand" to inquiries from customers and FDA
  • Provide customer transparency
  • Be audit ready quickly and efficiently without disrupting operations
  • Regularly trend FSQA performance and data in order to make continuous improvements

Finesse Mills chose SafetyChain and SafetyChain for Food because of its:

  • Comprehensive end-to-end FSQA functionality
  • Ability to easily collect FSQA data from suppliers and 3rd party labs
  • Realtime analysis of FSQA data to specifications -- along with automatic alerts if a non-compliant result is detected
  • Scalability to accommodate rapid growth
  • Ability to leverage existing technology investments vs. having to "rip everything out and start over"
  • Knowledgeable staff who guide understanding of how to leverage the technology to streamline processes and practices
  • On-demand access to a central repository of time/date stamped, unalterable FSQA data for regulatory, 3rd party and customer transparency and audit readiness as well as performance trending

"Here at Finesse Mills, we're committed to going 'above and beyond' when it comes to food safety and quality. SafetyChain gives us the ability to continuously improve our processes and programs without straining resources. Additionally, they helped us do more than simply automate our manual processes. They helped us find ways to harness the power of the solution to do things more efficiently and effectively," said Steve Steigman, President, Finesse Mills.

"Steve and the team at Finesse Mills are very forward-thinking when it comes to food safety and quality. They wanted to do more than simply get rid of paper. They wanted to leverage FSQA data for trending and performance analysis to continuously find areas for improvement to give both regulatory agencies and customers the highest level of confidence. SafetyChain is very pleased to be Finesse Mills' technology partner to help achieve its vision," said Barbara Levin, SafetyChain SVP and co-founder.
