Food, beverage, and CPG companies have unique challenges:
TraceGains Supplier Management streamlines supplier qualification and sourcing by collecting and digitizing supplier documents, extracting the relevant data, and arranging it into performance dashboards and reports. Users can choose standard or custom dashboards for allergen, organic, country of origin, nutrition, risk analysis, and other mission-critical data. The system generates automatic alerts when supplier documents are missing, incomplete, or about to expire.
Leveraging TraceGains Network, users can easily connect with suppliers, and necessary documents are instantly delivered from a vast supplier document repository. On average, our customers find that 80 percent of their suppliers are already in TraceGains Network, allowing them to immediately connect and collaborate. If it’s not documented, you didn’t do it, especially in the eyes of an auditor. TraceGains customers regularly report on how delighted auditors are when documents and underlying data are just a click away.
