TraceGains automatically reads and digitizes all incoming COAs, evaluates them against your specifications, and alerts you and your suppliers (if you wish) to any non-conformances. This acts as your early warning system, allowing you to be proactive when it comes to identifying issues with any incoming shipment and ultimately reduce out of spec inventory.
Both FSMA and GFSI require more stringent recordkeeping and proactive approaches to food safety. When TraceGains validates COAs according to your specifications, they can also be examined for compliance with food safety requirements.
Report and track any issues that happen at receiving (e.g., incorrect seals on trailers, damaged containers), in quality (e.g., sample tests, preventative maintenance, sanitation), and even the plant floor (e.g., contaminated materials, fill weights), helping to ensure all teams are on the same page regarding supplier performance.
Corrective Actions and Supplier Corrective Action Requests (CARs/SCARs) are an added benefit to companies that want to formalize processes in areas like receiving, quality, and the plant floor. With TraceGains, you can quickly and easily send these requests to your suppliers, expediting the corrective process.
If you rely on supplier-provided specifications, the SpecAssist dashboard can help automate the process of defining your specification ranges based on historical data. The result? Specs grounded in both your needs and real world practicalities.
TraceGains automatically scorecards supplier performance based on your own product and ingredient specifications. Need to know which suppliers perform best when it comes to having the appropriate truck temperatures? Supplier Compliance can do that. Does a particular supplier’s COA regularly match testing results? You can easily create a scorecard around that, too. With TraceGains, you can literally scorecard suppliers on anything and everything, lot by lot.
Configure automatic notifications whenever a non-conformance is detected by the system. eNotifications are customizable, and can be automatically directed to just the right stakeholders, either internal personnel or external partners.
Each TraceGains product can work independently as a standalone solution, or run side-by-side with one another to help give you the ultimate food safety program.
