For many manufacturers and brand owners, managing supplier and inventory compliance is time-consuming and labor-intensive. Crucial information maintained across disjointed data silos can impact material variability from suppliers and lead to quality and process inconsistencies for your team and create compliance and regulatory issues for your organization. Despite the industry’s best efforts over the years, undeclared allergens and foreign materials continue to top the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s annual Recall list.
Manual processes are notoriously error-prone, increasing the risk of non-conforming materials making it onto the production line. Rework, labor, and downtime during production can be costly and delay the product shipment to customers. And if issues slip by undetected and reach customers, the impact can be devastating.
At TraceGains, we’ve set out to reduce supplier and inventory risk by eliminating manual processes and automating material compliance. We bring people and information together by digitally transforming supplier and specification management programs using standardized data. Operating as a virtual early warning system, Supplier Compliance automatically compares material specifications to incoming CoAs, identifies issues with incoming shipments, and evaluates supplier product performance, lot by lot, from purchase order to production, extending inventory visibility to the shipping dock.
Join TraceGains for an in-depth look into our industry-standard forms and extensive attribute library, and see how supplier data and business rules inform specification data, automate supplier compliance, and eliminate supplier and ingredient risk.
