Quality Departments Are Bogged Down With Manual Processes

Food, beverage, and CPG companies have unique challenges:

  • Plant floor data is often logged on clipboards, then stored in binders, using hundreds of paper forms.
  • When a required action is missed or key data isn’t entered, it can lead to major downstream problems.
  • Audits are slow and stressful when critical data is stored in 3-ring binders and filing cabinets.
  • Filed paper can’t be mined to provide insight into trends and emerging problems for process improvement.
  • Unexpected equipment failures, maintenance issues, and product defects increase risk, downtime, and cost.
  • Monitoring of the safety plan, corrective actions, and verification are time – and resource-intensive manual tasks.

Quality Management Can Fix It

TraceGains Quality Management helps companies drive continuous improvement with the ability to store and analyze quality control and safety data in a single system, providing immediate insight into plant floor and quality operations. Forms once kept in binders and file cabinets are digitized so when data is gathered electronically on the plant floor, it’s automatically matched with compliance standards and key benchmarks. When issues arise, the system triggers notifications instantly, empowering employees to act. Corrective Action Requests (CARs) are generated quickly and are immediately visible to users. Easily accessible and comprehensive quality data means a more efficient plant floor, less work overall, and faster response times to demanding audits.
