SafetyChain Software Announces Next Generation Food Safety Chain Management System

Only Cloud-Based Food Safety and Quality Assurance (FSQA) System That Automates Food Vendor Supplier Compliance, FSQA Program Management, Process Management, On-Demand Audit Readiness and Mobile FSQA in a Single, Integrated Software Solution

BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwired - April 07, 2014) - FOOD SAFETY SUMMIT-- SafetyChain Software, innovators of realtime food safety chain management systems (FSCMS) that "automate, streamline and improve FSQA™", is excited to announce the next generation version of its leading FSCMS, SafetyChain for Food -- including industry-leading enhancements to Audit/FSQA Document Management, Food Safety & Quality Process Management, Mobile FSQA and Approved Supplier Program Management. 

SafetyChain has experienced tremendous growth across all food industry sectors by offering the only cloud-based, integrated modular solution that incorporates comprehensive functionality to automate food safety and quality assurance (FSQA) at all points along a company's supply chain -- hence the name SafetyChain. SafetyChain for Food includes modules for Supplier Compliance, FSQA Program Management, Process Management, On-Demand Audit Readiness and Mobile FSQA.

New Version Enhancements Designed to Further Automate, Streamline and Improve FSQA in Fast-Moving, Global Food Safety Environment

The next generation of SafetyChain for Food provides key best-in-class enhancements driven by the ever-increasing complexities of global FSQA. Enhancements include:

  • 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 -- for a USDA/FDA, GFSI or customer audit, HACCP/HARPC review, supplier approval, CAPA review, operational or test results views -- as just a few examples. A single document can be associated with multiple needs, so that with the click of a mouse users can organize all documents according to any one of these or other perspectives.
  • 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 criteria, for every test -- and associated corrective/preventive actions (CAPAs) based upon results. These capabilities, along with cross-functional document management, promote true audit readiness -- not just the ability to produce audit documents, but to also show that all FSQA program steps were followed along with clearly documented CAPAs.
  • Immediate Mobile Corrective Actions: SafetyChain Mobile will now not only allow FSQA data/forms to be entered in-field/in-plant/in-transit/in-store via mobile devices -- safety and quality test results will also be evaluated in realtime via mobile -- enforcing immediate corrective actions for non-conformances.
  • Enhanced Integrated Portals for Approved Supplier Management Programs: New version enhancements will provide even more flexibility for the ways in which suppliers, as part of a company's approved vendor programs, 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 -- which crosses all SafetyChain for Food modules -- for complete FSQA records and audit-readiness. And, as always, SafetyChain does not charge a company's suppliers to use the supplier portal features.

"Every day, we hear from our customers and prospects that while FSQA requirements are growing, their staffs are not -- forcing them to continuously 'do more with less.' We're therefore very excited about the industry-leading enhancements we've made in this new version of SafetyChain for Food, because they add even greater ability to automate, streamline and enhance FSQA from a single, integrated solution with a centralized repository of FSQA data," said Barbara Levin, SafetyChain senior vice president and co-founder.
