Westminster, CO -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/15/2013 -- Increasing Profitability through Supplier Quality Automation is the name of the most important session at the 9th Annual North American Summit on Food Safety. At 2:30pm EST, March 6, 2013 at the Hilton Toronto Airport, Carole Inman, VP, Sales & Marketing, Specialty Food Ingredients and Gary Nowacki, CEO of TraceGains will discuss automating supplier compliance with critical business rules to minimize risks and create performance.

The event will allow participants to develop competitive strategies to optimize inventory compliance to meet production schedules, build on food safety certification and efficiency, manufacture higher quality goods at a lower cost, and transform workforce culture and increase employee satisfaction.”

TraceGains (http://www.tracegains.com) is for quality, purchasing, product development, and other departments, that are burdened with manually managing suppliers and documents. TraceGains delivers full-service supplier, compliance, and regulatory document management solutions, including FSMA and GFSI. Unlike manual, ERP, or traditional document systems, TraceGains extracts data from documents and automatically takes action. TraceGains is proven to empower people to quickly solve problems, speed audits, and simplify continuous product improvement.
Supplier documentation storage, whether in file cabinets or in digital formats, may satisfy regulatory retention requirements, but does little to systematically unlock the wealth of business, compliance, and regulatory information they contain and you require on a daily basis to operate successfully.
By automatically analyzing and scorecarding supplier-provided documentation as it is received—such as certificates of analysis, qualification questionnaires, audit documents and their results, certifications (Kosher, Organic, etc.), insurance certificates, allergen questionnaires, and other import requirements (COOL, C-TPAT, FSMA, GFSI), among others—TraceGains helps food and nutraceutical manufacturers and ingredient processors automate document management, meet regulatory and industry compliance requirements, identify best and worst suppliers, source better with less risk, automatically raise product quality, and painlessly perform or participate in audits, all without needing to involve the IT department to help with complex technology.
