We're excited to release version 15.4 of FoodLogiQ Connect today, our online supplier community used by food companies to manage quality, safety and traceability across their supply chain.
To meet mounting regulatory requirements and consumer demands for transparency, food companies are partnering with FoodLogiQ to onboard all of their suppliers, capture product information from each of those suppliers, and rate them based on their own audits and assessments. By building this community in FoodLogiQ Connect, food companies are achieving end-to-end traceability for their supply chain and acting with confidence when food safety or quality issues arise or they have to issue a stock withdrawal or recall.
"This latest release of Connect is built upon years of input from our customers," said FoodLogiQ co-founder Andy Kennedy. "By working with food industry leaders like Chipotle Mexican Grill and Whole Foods Market we have integrated a user-friendly approach to traceability into our software platform."
Adds FoodLogiQ CEO Dean Wiltse, "We've taken something that was once only attainable by the industry leaders and packaged it into something accessible for food companies both big and small. We're working with companies spanning from mid-sized distributors to startup retail chains and major consumer products brands to organic farmers - and talking to more and more potential customers every day."
Key updates to the latest version of Connect include:
Enhanced Traceability Features: Community owners can use the "Investigation" tab to visualize critical tracking events that have been recorded or that have been shared with them by their suppliers.
Execute "Smart" Stock Withdrawals: Community owners can now add one or more Product Lots to their withdrawals and use the "Smart" lot selection that enables them to include other lots that were created from the selected lot.
Template Assessments: Community Owners can access industry-driven supplier assessments and or create their own with additional question types and collect the assessment at the supplier product and location level.
Improved User Interface: The latest release includes overall enhanced user interface including a new layout of the Community pages and the incorporation of Onboarding steps into your Community page. Updates to the Admin menu has been relocated to the top right corner as "Settings" - allowing one-click access to all User, Business and Community Admin functions.
