“Built-in, not added on or repackaged”
Product Assurance must be integral to management practices and pervasive in all processes and reporting. Outdated technologies and document management systems frequently provide a false sense of security.
In case of Audit or Recall, the ability to quickly and easily trace product to its source is invaluable. As the only company whose system has passed a CPSC audit, we know first-hand what is required.
We cover you from concept thru consumption!
Manage your supply chain, compliance obligations and increase operational efficiencies without increasing your staff!
