What Is Food Quality Software?

Food quality software solutions cater to the unique needs of food and beverage companies by providing tools to mitigate risks and catch issues in their earliest possible stages. Software has features such as the ability to automatically retrieve data from a number of sources and pieces of equipment in real-time, notifications for out-of-spec results, and KPI analysis to help companies maintain ongoing operational excellence. Most importantly, it also stores all of this data, as well as program documents and any other information you may have, in one centralized system.

Which Document Control Issues Can It Solve?

Without a centralized repository for all food safety and quality assurance (FSQA) program data, companies struggle to properly and accurately document their records. In fact, more than half of respondents surveyed by SafetyChain and the Acheson Group said this was an issue in their company. Food safety solutions solve this problem by electronically creating unalterable, time- and date-stamped records of FSQA program data, and then storing it in one convenient system.

Moreover, the inability to filter records for better audit preparation and response to inquiries is another issue with traditional document control systems, according to Food Safety Tech. Software, on the other hand, makes it easy to retrieve data by specific date, location, and many other filters. It also supports change requests and revision control; two areas in which paper-based and basic file sharing systems are sorely lacking. Because document control is an ongoing process for many food and beverage companies and records often need to be updated, having a system that supports these unique workflows seamlessly is critical.

SafetyChain Software is a cloud-based food quality management system that reduces costs, waste, and risk for food companies. Our powerful FSQA platform gives quality and operations managers an easy-to-use tool to automate compliance, safety, and quality programs while providing valuable real-time data to help optimize operations.
