With a food safety app, you can say goodbye to the old days of diving through piles of paperwork when presenting documentation evidence to food safety auditors. iAuditor can help you eliminate paper-driven audit processes and modernize your food safety compliance program.

To ensure that food is safe and of adequate quality, many of the world’s leading food chain operators strive to earn food safety certifications (e.g. HACCP, ISO 22000, FSSC 22000, GMP, FSMA, BRC, and SQF) through regular, stringent third-party food certification audits. Regular audits ensure an organization’s compliance with international food standards and regulations.

For consumers, food safety certificates prove that businesses adhere to the laws and best practices that protect them from food-borne illnesses and other adverse health effects. For businesses on the other hand, certifications protect them from potential financial losses, lawsuits, and closure.

Internal food safety audit programs help food manufacturers, suppliers, and service firms prepare the necessary documentation evidence for certification audits; however, many audit programs are still paper-driven. This method makes it arduous for food safety auditors and businesses for a number of reasons, namely:

  1. It takes longer to generate reports.
  2. It provides little insight into areas of improvement.
  3. It leads to tons of paperwork and potential storage issues.
  4. It prevents actionable data from being analyzed immediately.

With a powerful food safety app, businesses can do away with paper checklists and modernize their compliance programs. A food safety app like iAuditor can be the “sixth sense” that empowers safety inspectors to monitor, predict, and analyze what’s happening in their operations with a system that makes internal compliance functions more efficient, sustainable, and productive.

4. From manual notifications to a systematic, automated workflow

The iAuditor food safety app takes out the guesswork from manual processes and helps streamline the internal food safety auditing process. By automating manual actions, such as scheduling of audits and notification of action items, businesses can save time and focus on producing safe and high-quality food products. Readily send auto-generated, comprehensive, CEO-ready reports right after an audit. iAuditor also provides an oversight of multiple food production sites through a centralized dashboard.

5. From manual temperature readings to automated entries via an IoT temperature sensor

Capturing accurate temperature data is critical when it comes to maintaining high food quality. Manual capture of temperature data is error-prone and only captures data from a single moment.

With iAuditor’s affordable temperature sensor, businesses can ensure accuracy in temperature readings. They can receive immediate notifications when food temperature falls outside the safe range. By maximizing the power of this temperature sensor, businesses can take action before an issue affects their brand’s reputation or, worse, a customer.
