Audits Are Complex, Cumbersome,
and Expensive

Food, beverage, and supplement companies have unique challenges:

  • Audits are crucial to ensuring compliance and managing risk, but the number and types of audits have increased dramatically due to changing regulatory and voluntary standards.
  • Scheduling and managing audit teams is deceptively complex because the criteria and frequency of audits vary widely, and assignments need to match the auditor’s qualifications.
  • Conducting audits with outdated tools such as email, spreadsheets, and paper-based forms and checklists is time-consuming and inefficient.
  • Performing paper-based or only partly electronic audits can lead to data entry errors and there is lag time in updating audit records.
  • When audits are completed, they are filed away, and the data can’t be mined for business insights such as risk profiling, trending, training, performance reviews, and other analysis.
  • As supply chains become increasingly global, performing audits internationally requires significant communication and collaboration.

Audit Management Can Fix It

TraceGains Audit Management automates and streamlines the entire audit process. Teams can schedule, conduct, and track audits on a single platform using a desktop or mobile device. Users can customize their own audit checklists or use pre-loaded templates. Notifications, workflows, and task assignments help track the progress of audit teams, and real-time reporting flags key findings and corrective actions.

Leveraging supply chain information already collected in TraceGains Network from 7,000 suppliers in 17,000 locations, auditors can quickly identify and prioritize suppliers with the highest risk and preview key documents like previous audits and corrective actions. With all information centralized on a single platform, manufacturers have a 360-degree view of the health and risk of their supply chain.

"Several of my clients already use TraceGains software and I cannot wait for them to start using Audit Management, too. This is a shortcut for conducting all kinds of audits. It is the perfect tool for completing the annual internal systems audit for SQF, BRC, etc. They can click through their audit checklist on a tablet, take photos, document observations, and have everything at their fingertips. This will help improve ongoing training and auditor quality of life in a big way!"
