BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwired - May 01, 2013) -  Food Safety Summit - SafetyChain Booth 302: SafetyChain Software, the leader in Food Safety Chain Management solutions that help ensure food safety and quality compliance while creating operational efficiencies that save time and money -- is excited to announce SafetyChain Mobile -- a powerful mobile food safety and quality assurance (FSQA) solution designed to automate, streamline and improve FSQA processes from farm-to-fork.

SafetyChain Mobile, which sends/receives information from SafetyChain's SafetyChain for Food™ FSQA suite, allows suppliers/growers, manufacturers/co-packers, distributors/importers and food service/retailers to:

1. Go paperless from the earliest point possible in a company's FSQA processes -- recording quality attributes and food safety data on mobile forms directly from a produce field, distribution center or processing plant, for example -- eliminating paper checklists, red-books and the need to manually enter "clip board" paper form info
2. Get information to the right people in realtime -- sending quality and HACCP / Preventive Controls data, on mobile forms, to the FSQA manager from a field pre-harvest, for example -- allowing immediate assessments and corrective actions for non-compliant events
3. Trend FSQA data immediately -- without having to wait for reports to be re-entered manually into spreadsheets and distributed to stakeholders for continuous improvement mandates; all data is displayed on live dashboards
4. Respond immediately -- anywhere, from SafetyChain dashboards on any mobile device, to inquiries from customers, auditors and/or regulators.

"In today's global, fast-paced food and beverage industry, every minute counts. The faster food safety and quality professionals receive FSQA data -- the faster they can move products to the next point in the supply chain or take corrective actions when required to help avoid food safety issues. SafetyChain's mobile innovations, with the introduction of SafetyChain Mobile, help take food safety and quality to the next level by eliminating manual, time-consuming processes and putting FSQA data at the fingertips of those who need it on-demand, from anywhere and at any time," said Dr. David Acheson, Partner, Leavitt Partners.

SafetyChain Mobile Key Features:

  • All food safety and quality inspection and other information that is entered remotely on mobile devices are automatically time/date stamped, and uploaded into SafetyChain for Food's central repository of data for immediate access -- eliminating data silos while promoting realtime trending and audit readiness
  • Electronic form capture includes the ability to have direct observation food safety and quality pictures along with form and photo documentation of deficiencies and their corrective actions
  • Scheduled food safety and quality inspection tasks and Standard Operating Procedure reviews can be set up in SafetyChain for Food's Task Scheduler and pushed to mobile device stakeholders to complete tasks on time; escalating alerts can be sent until task is successfully completed
  • Once mobile form food safety and quality data is received, results are compared to specifications; if a non-compliant event or omission occurs, alerts will be sent to key decision makers to take realtime corrective actions
  • If information is entered into SafetyChain Mobile in an area where there is no internet connection, it is automatically saved and auto-sent as soon as the device has a connection
  • Mobile device forms can be set up in multiple languages for input into the database

"Getting rid of paper in FSQA is key to the ability to automate, streamline and improve regulatory, 3rd party and internal food safety and quality programs. It speeds the ability to get the right information to the right people in the fastest manner possible. This helps prevent food safety and/or quality deviations, keep cost of goods made within specifications and performance standards while ultimately protecting brand and market value," said Barbara Levin, SafetyChain SVP and Co-Founder.
