TraQtion, Supply Chain Software That Automates Risk & Compliance Tracking, Now Available in UK & EU

To better ensure food safety, TraQtion scans and interprets data, immediately alerting clients when a supplier, product or site is out of compliance.

LONG HANBOROUGH, OXON, UK. (May 3, 2017) – TraQtion, an independent subsidiary of NSF International, an organisation with over 70 years of expertise protecting human health and safety, announces the immediate availability of its leading quality management software aimed at helping track compliance and risk across suppliers, products and sites for food and beverage retailers, restaurants and manufacturers. The software provides companies an automated, unique and trusted way to manage their products and global supply chains. TraQtion can be used as a stand-alone compliance tool or optionally combined with NSF International’s managed services to go beyond compliance and use data to meet business goals.

The TraQtion solution has already been applauded by North American clients for its proprietary, intelligent-compliance engine that goes far beyond simply storing data, but also scans, evaluates and interprets the data to ensure it meets requirements. TraQtion uses clients’ own thresholds and requirements to determine risk levels for suppliers, products and sites. Using these thresholds, TraQtion immediately alerts clients of higher-risk profile suppliers, products and sites for quick follow-up actions, which helps protect consumers and the client’s brand. This is essential given today’s rapidly changing global supply chains and demand from both consumers and regulators to be more proactive and responsive to any risk that occurs across the supply chain.

Some of the capabilities of TraQtion include:

  • A unique intelligent-compliance engine that continually checks and send alerts to provide at-a-glance visibility to potential risks and critical responses
  • Advanced product specification management that helps customers track all product-related information, and share information collaboratively with the entire supply chain
  • A product inspection module for automatic identification of in-spec and out-of-spec products through testing and inspections
  • Advanced dashboards that provide a visual overview of a company’s quality and compliance program. A colour-coded compliance rating for suppliers, products and sites quickly helps identify any issues

“Organisations across the supply chain in the UK and Europe can now benefit from the success that TraQtion clients have experienced in the U.S., ensuring the tracking of food safety, quality and compliance,” said Jeremy Whinnett, Regional Director, TraQtion. “Our unique proposition can justifiably be seen as a game changer for managing compliance. The numerous data points that food safety and quality organisations need to track to identify if a supplier or product is safe to use can be daunting. TraQtion provides a solution to fit organisations’ current processes and procedures by integrating intelligent scans, evaluations and interpretations of the data. This allows for qualified responses and solutions to any quality or compliance risk that may significantly compromise their business.”

TraQtion offers a range of solutions important to the food industry through the support of NSF International food, product safety and quality experts. The inclusion of experienced, technical resources sets it apart from many competitive solutions. This will ensure the solution is appropriate for business requirements and provides corporate value beyond regulatory compliance. Utilising NSF International’s optional managed services unlocks new ways to maximise the data for a company’s specific goals.

Over the next three years NSF International continues its multi-million dollar investment in TraQtion to further expand the functionality and deliver smart end-to-end quality and compliance solutions.
