Most food, beverage, and dietary supplements manufacturers realize that ensuring compliance for suppliers and incoming inventory is critical, but this effort is often labor-intensive. Manual processes are notoriously error-prone, increasing the risk of non-conforming materials making it into the production line. Rework, labor, and downtime during production are costly and can delay the shipment of products to customers. And if issues slip by undetected and reach customers, the impact can be devastating. Don’t let variability lead to quality problems, process inconsistencies, compliance complications, or regulatory issues.
Supplier Compliance lets manufacturers evaluate supplier product performance, lot by lot, from purchase order to production, extending inventory visibility all the way to the shipping dock. Teams can scorecard suppliers based on critical attributes such as continuous compliance with ingredient specifications and more. Supplier Compliance also operates as a virtual early warning system, automatically identifying issues with incoming shipments before they make it into production, eliminating the risk of out-of-spec inventory.
