Provision Analytics’ cloud food safety software has been approved by DNV, ASI Food Safety, and QIMA/WQS for use in blended audits, making it an official platform for food companies to share documentation for remote review.
DNV, ASI, and QIMA/WQS are among the largest certification bodies in the world, conducting audits for more than 50,000 food companies annually. Their auditing solutions are approved by GFSI-recognized certification schemes, government entities, and major food retailers. With staff spanning more than 100 countries, they have been adopted by client operations spanning farm-to-fork – from small regional operations to international giants such as Coca-Cola, Kraft, and Kroger.
Provision is a cloud software platform that enables food companies to streamline record-keeping for food safety and quality assurance. Its offering is tailored to small- and mid-sized operations, who need highly usable and flexible solutions to digitize their documentation. By unlocking clear and timely data, food companies can not only save time and risk in audits, but also generate insight for process control.
Achieving significant adoption across North America, Provision clients started contacting certification bodies to request its formal approval, noting flexible reporting that simplifies data retrieval for remote review.
Demand for digital solutions and “blended audits” has surged in recent years. Following the Global Food Safety Initiative’s landmark approval during COVID-19, food companies could have their documentation reviewed remotely, limiting auditors’ on-site time to only a premises inspection. This blended approach reduces auditors’ travel costs as well as audit-related downtime in food facilities. With the added efficiency of digital searches and summaries, remote documentation review is affording clients and auditors notable savings in time and money.
“As food companies see increasingly compelling reasons to digitize food safety documentation, we see blended audits becoming the future of our industry. Provision is a highly intuitive and efficient platform for our clients to manage their data, allowing a streamlined audit experience.”
CEO, ASI Food Safety
“By digitizing food safety documentation and enabling remote access, Provision empowers food companies to achieve audit efficiency, enhance process control, and ultimately strengthen their overall food safety management practices.”
CEO, QIMA/WQS & QIMA IBD
“Digitalized food safety documentation not only supports the audit process with remote access, it has additional advantages in making product recall and traceability more effective and timely, which can build transparency and trust in the supply chain.”
Supply Chain Services Director, DNV
“Food companies recognize that binders, scans, and spreadsheets are not only slow for auditors, but a hindrance to their own businesses. Remote documentation review is another way for Provision clients to achieve a smarter operation. We’re excited to take this step with such reputable certification bodies, who are validating the importance of data in the food supply chain.”
