A Comprehensive Food Safety Risk Management Solution
ReposiTrak has again been recognized by Food Logistics as one of the top technology providers of 2016. We provide food, pharma and dietary supplement retailers and suppliers with a robust cloud-based solution to help protect their brands and remain in compliance with business and regulatory requirements effectively helping them manage their food safety risk.
ReposiTrak’s Compliance Management system is a one-stop solution for automating the management of and importantly, CONFIRMING compliance of corporate and supplier food safety documents, and/or regulatory records. It’s the food safety solution you’ll need for FSMA, as dual reporting provides instant notifications on compliance issues while the ability for certification bodies to directly upload results speeds audit processes.
Now that SQFI and ReposiTrak have partnered to Integrate SQF’s audit management into ReposiTrak’s Compliance Management System, we are able to push notifications regarding any change in certification status immediately to a supplier’s customers on ReposiTrak. We know that all supply chain participants want to know when a partner keeps, gains, or loses their 3rd party audit certification status to reduce their risk. This is an exclusive value ReposiTrak and SQFI are providing that is not available from any other compliance management provider or audit schema.
The Track & Trace system quickly identifies the supply chain path taken by a product in the unfortunate event of a product recall. It can reduce the risk in the supply chain by identifying backward chaining sources and forward chaining recipients of any product or ingredient. Currently, the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requires each recipient of a product in the supply chain be able to know where product came from (one-back) and where it went (one forward). For the Drug Quality Security Act (DQSA), pharma supply chain participants must be able to trace the path of a drug from ingredient to consumer.
The New Vendor Setup Automation screens for compliance and automates the steps of the approval process. New vendors access and upload all required business, food safety and regulatory documents and ReposiTrak confirms if and when a new vendor number should be assigned and their first purchase order generated.
The Item Master/Specs Management System provides a streamlined way to manage product data collection. It can account for all vendor product-level specifications including descriptions, and pricing (if desired). It will manage product-level compliance (think non-GMO, etc.) and can help you reduce risk by flagging purchase orders for non-payment based on non-compliance.
Coming in March 2017, retailers and wholesalers can connect with suppliers, and bring new products to market in just a fraction of the time. Unlike other electronic supplier catalogs, the MarketPlace solution is the first of its kind to automate and guide sourcing from end-to-end, and includes supplier qualification, order negotiation and on-boarding of a new supplier.
It’s Not Just The Technology!
The ReposiTrak Difference? An Active Approach
Other systems simply don’t move the needle in achieving supply chain compliance as they take a passive approach and depend on the voluntary self-management of suppliers. Without constant contact and follow up, your suppliers will fall out of compliance, and increase your brand risk. With ReposiTrak, we believe it takes a village to drive implementation and manage compliance, and therefore we offer an active vs. a passive approach to on-boarding and maintenance of compliance.
ReposiTrak takes an active approach by combining a web-based solution with an in-house team assigned to you to speed results and reduce risk. As much as we believe in automation, humans reaching out by phone to your suppliers make all the difference. Our studies show that very few suppliers will respond to an email alert to address compliance.Our approach includes:
- A Dedicated Staff – a team of account managers & technical support who make personal contact with your vendors via phone and email to assist them in getting fully compliant with your requirements. We currently support industry-leading Retailers and Wholesalers and their thousands of suppliers and are continuing to grow.
- Non-Compliance Follow Up – our ReposiTrak team will reach out to suppliers and literally “nag” them to correct non-compliance issues. This saves hours of time spent by QC, Food Safety, Category, Finance, and Risk Managers.
