According to TraceGains’ CEO Gary Nowacki, “Food companies must use scarce resources to manage where it counts. TraceGains technology allows food companies to direct attention where it matters most. We made it easy to click on the “tough calls” to quickly manage them and catch the problems that can damage a food company.”
TraceGains is a complete compliance and risk management solution that automates data from paper or electronic filing cabinets and makes it actionable. Unlike ERP, home-grown, or manual systems, TraceGains continuously controls, illuminates, and predicts risk for each ingredient shipment and supplier certification.
Nowacki also noted, “All COAs are compared to specifications and email notifications are sent both internally and externally. We make sure there are enterprise dashboards to manage, key reports to show trends, supplier portal for each supplier and a strong feedback loop for continuous improvement.”
Holistic Supplier Risk Management is part of continuous improvement. It allows for synchronization with suppliers and ensures reduced risk and increased profits. Supplier data is mapped and sent, which the supplier then acknowledges requirements and sends data. There is then an automatic firewall and supplier eNotification, all driven by business rules. This is followed by portal feedback to the supplier, where the supplier receives instant notification of any issues.
With TraceGains’ Holistic Supplier Risk Management the system monitors time-triggered events, thus creating supplier management. Supplier Management provides feedback to the supplier…they see status and benchmark reports. These data allow for automatic predictive risk profiling by supplier and attributes.
