Seamless Traceability.

Flawless Audits.

Each Time. Every Time.

Why You Need a Digital QA System

Operationally, food safety systems are being increasingly tested because of more stringent regulations, high customer purchasing standards and skills shortages.

You need to provide traceability and compliance reporting and flawless audit information within set timelines. Paper based, error prone and time-consuming processes just don’t stand up to these demands so it is essential that food manufacturers are equipped with proactive tools to pre-empt and mitigate likely issues on the factory floor, as well as maintaining efficient food safety and traceability processes and transparent audit systems.

Digitalising your QA processes delivers improved efficiency and insights to:

  • Minimise administration time and maximise reporting value

  • Accelerate and enhance food safety processes

  • Make dynamic business decisions

  • Be audit ready, reduce costs and more

Success with Aptean

Bearfields of London Achieve Their Vision for a Paperless Business.

Bearfields of London are an award-winning UK processor and producer of pork products, including gammons and hams. With their current system not meeting their requirements, they were reliant on paper to manage QA procedures, leading to a lack of transparency and visibility across their business.

Recognising that digitalisation would eliminate paper-based QA and manual errors from their operations, they turned to Aptean. Since implementing Aptean QA Management, Bearfields has improved QA and traceability with 100% transparency across all 5 sites and have removed paper entirely from their business.

All of our technical and QA procedures are now paperless; we have real-time visibility on checks, non-conformances, and corrective actions.” - Neil Edwards, Operations Director, Bearfields
