Accountability and Transparency: Tasks for every employee and team member (including contractors and suppliers) will be transparent under the MasterControl food safety software systems, increasing individual accountability. Assignment and tracking of tasks will be faster and easier. No task will get lost in a pile of paper or e-mail messages.
Faster Turnaround: An electronic food safety system greatly speeds up the process of routing, reviewing, and approving documents and forms. Any delays by individual users will be transparent and can be immediately addressed and escalated for faster turnaround.
Connectivity: MasterControl food safety software systems connect all quality processes, making tracking of quality incidents easier. For example, a customer complaint entered into the system may launch a CAPA directly, streamlining the CAPA process. The training process could be integrated, so when a CAPA is approved, it could automatically invoke training for the appropriate personnel.
Mobility: Using MasterControl Mobile in conjunction with MasterControl food safety software systems will allow your team members to access information from the system using tablets and smartphones. They don't need to be in front of a computer in the office to input information or participate in a quality process. They will be able to capture quality incidents as they occur on site (factory, farm, processing center, etc.).
Inspection Readiness: By automating your quality management processes and food safety system, you will always be ready for inspection and your processes will be transparent to inspectors.
