- Automate inbound FSQA information with alerts when non-conformance is detected
- Create a centralized repository of all FSQA and related data – including test results, registrations, certifications, CAPAs and much more – for fast response to FDA inquiries on foreign suppliers and/or auditors, audit readiness, verification/validation, FSVP reassessments and trending for risk assessment and program fine-tuning
- And much, much more- including how automation supports all key stakeholders, including those who import foreign foods and those who use those products during production – as well as those who are audited and auditors themselves.
