U.S – In order to help food safety teams in the food and beverage sector work more efficiently and with less work, Document Compliance Network (DCN), a cloud-based solution that makes managing food safety documentation easier, has released a new edition of its food safety software.

There are 14 languages supported by DCN’s food safety software, including Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese (Brazil), Russian, and Spanish.

In addition, you can designate the preferred language of your business partner (customer or vendor) to streamline communication and efficiency in the global supply chain.

DCN also modified its internal document area to incorporate a history and change log, making it simple to track updates to Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) as required by various auditing organizations and food safety requirements.

For the supplier side of the platform, the upgrade also adds a history and advanced note system that will automatically move earlier iterations of documents into history and keep track of who approved them.

Food and beverage businesses can submit their most recent papers to the program, which will automatically deliver them to associated customers before they expire, and send one-way fillable PDFs to suppliers.

A library of documents that can be arranged for simple storage and searchability is also included in the software.

The software will alert the user for consent whenever a supplier requests changes to their contact information, reports Cision PR Newswire.

The program will automatically update the supplier’s contact details after it has been approved. The user also has the ability to rank suppliers based on custom criteria.

“My favorite feature is the ability to easily request documents from current and new suppliers. I remember when I was a quality manager and had to track everything in an Excel spreadsheet. There would always be one or two suppliers whom I didn’t have any documents for and another handful with expired documents.

“Having a food safety software that automatically makes sure I have all the necessary documents would have reduced my stress levels significantly,” says Daria, Client Success Director at DCN with a Master’s Degree in Food Science and Technology from Oregon State University.

Document Compliance Network was developed and is run by a team with over 50 years of combined experience in food manufacturing and food safety.

It is ideal for food and beverage manufacturers, growers, processors, vendors, and brokers and is priced at U.S$9,600 per year, which includes unlimited users, documents, support, training, and data.
