IICs during FSIS audits with the help of our Plant Management Software.

Digital Transformation of Quality, Compliance, and Automation With Plant Management Software


Quality and compliance issues are quite common when manual processes and activities are employed. With manual data entry into spreadsheets, it is estimated that the probability of a human error is between 18% and 40%. Food safety compliance software can turn these numbers around fairly quickly and streamline your processes at the same time.

The Need For Plant Management Software:
Challenges Faced by The Meat Industry

Quality deviations and compliance violations that have been recorded manually take time to understand. This time lag can lead to a further reduction in quality and even non-compliance. The time lost between identifying non-compliance incidents and reporting them is often so much that it gets too late to assign appropriate corrective action to be taken.
Discuss With Our Digital Solutions Expert
It’s cumbersome and extremely time-consuming to sift through mountains of paperwork to be able to compile relevant documents to submit for essential audits. This also always keeps the management on edge about any IIC or audit visit because they know they will have to spend a considerable amount of time simply preparing for the audit, and it will be even worse if some documents are lost.
Discuss With Our Digital Solutions Expert
It’s difficult to control hazard management processes and compliance procedures because of a lack of communication because of manual processes. It’s also difficult to keep up with evolving USDA regulations and protocols, which leads to further gaps in hazard management. It is difficult to take decisions on time because the management is not aware of any accidents that occur until it is already too late.
Discuss With Our Digital Solutions Expert
Manually updating processes and forms can take up a lot of time and may even lead to a reduction in quality and even compliance issues because compliance has a time frame. Delays like these can lead to non-compliance. With paper-based processes, the forms have to be manually updated and then re-printed before being sent out to various locations and facilities physically, which takes time and effort.

How Does Plant Management Software Benefit You?

Compliance and quality are critical elements when it comes to the meat industry. Needless to say, contaminated meat or meat from a diseased animal can result in serious consequences for someone who has consumed it. This is why it is important for meat production to follow certain standards and abide by the necessary regulations for the final product to be safe and fit for consumption. Most food and beverage production companies have to follow HACCP protocols and get certified to be able to market and sell their final product. Food safety compliance software comes to the rescue here because it helps solve the many compliance challenges faced by the meat production and packing industry. Here are some ways that food quality management software can benefit you:
