FCM

Compliance Management

It provides the ultimate in compliance management software for the food and food-related industries, delivering:

  • Continuous Improvement
  • Risk Assessment and Analysis
  • Effective Complaint Handling
  • Asset and Equipment Management
  • Controlled Processes and Controlled Documentation
  • Auditing and Non-conformance Management
  • Personnel Skills/Duties/Competency Appraisal System

And it won't cost the earth either, you only pay for the modules you want and software licencing is made easy too, as the open licence system means you only need a licence for the number of people actually on the system at the same tame. So if you have fifty users but on average only five are on the system at the same time you will only need five licences. And unlike many of our competitors the system will not lock you out even if all fifty people log on at the same time. Nor will there be any additional charges just because you exceeded your licenced number of users, as we monitor usage and only if you regularly exceed your licenced numbers will we talk to you about upgrading - no retrospective charges. Again it's meant to make the system cost effective and easy to budget for.

One of the big advantages of Food Chain Manager® is its ability to automate many of the processes that take up so much time, typically time within the Technical and Quality departments. It also makes those all-too-frequent audits much easier to manage as documentation, document control, training records job descriptions, site audits and many other key aspects are all available directly from the system at the touch of a button. And no need to worry about whether everything is up to date as your personal, department and company dashboard will tell you if any aspect is in need of attention every time you log in - now that's peace of mind for you!

What does Food Chain Manager© do for your quality requirements?

Food Chain Manager® is a suite of integrated applications each designed to meet an aspect of the four key cornerstones of delivering a competent quality regime:

Control Documentation: With Food Chain Manager®, your documents are structured, versioned, access-controlled, easily accessible against permissions and easily authorized, enabling your organization to meet its compliance objectives and expectations. The system even comes pre-loaded with a policy manual based on the BRC v5 standard as well as some of the generic procedures.

Continuous Improvement: Food Chain Manager® helps you better understand and truly see your processes and procedures, thus illuminating any gap or deficiency which may be inherent in your organization. Food Chain Manager® ensures that you are doing what you think you are doing, and ensures that what you are doing is accurate and in line with the standard/specification required to be achieved.

Improvement Plans: Whether the Continuous Improvement actions are corrective, preventative, or pure improvement, the need to ensure that each action is completed, verified and signed-off in a structure that records these events is key to a successful solution. Food Chain Manager® facilitates all of your Improvement Plans to ensure that your organization can compete in a fast-paced, competitive environment.

Management Information: If you have the infrastructure to monitor and handle the quality system, then you need to know where you are in your plan, what is outstanding, and who is doing what. Food Chain Manager® will help you meet these objectives and offers flexible reporting, personalized to the individual manager. Food Chain Manager® will ensure that all pertinent information is available and easily-accessible to meet the demands of the job. Cost Structure
