Quest for SQF Certification

Amanda Turner, QA Manager was given the task of finding a software solution to help True Essence achieve SQF certification. After meeting with several software companies, True Essence decided that FoodReady was the best fit for their budget, and had the desired software features to make it possible for them to meet a strict timeline.

Traceability and Tracking

True Essence needed a user-friendly, adaptable, and mobile food safety process to move at the same pace as their growing company. Amanda told us – “The traceability FoodReady provided with recording, tracking, and the ability to search historical data was excellent to aid in our SQF goal.”

Checklists and Task Manager are “Absolute Favorites”

“Checklists and task manager are my absolute favorite parts of FoodReady. Checklists are extremely easy to make. I can adapt them to fit my team’s needs and change them at any time. The Task Manager is phenomenal. I love establishing reoccurring tasks, monitoring progress, and assigning the checklists that need to be completed for each task. This keeps my team accountable and gives me ease of monitoring,”

FoodReady Reduces Staffing Needs

When we asked Amanda if FoodReady has helped reduce any of True Essence’s costs, she told us – “FoodReady has given us the ability to hold off on hiring staff that I would have needed for document monitoring. If I did not have FoodReady then I would have needed to hire additional technicians and for our young company, it is a hard thing to do,” said Amanda Turner, QA Manager.

Mobile App Use

The True Essence operations staff actively uses the mobile app. Approximately a third of the staff uses the Spanish version of the mobile application.

Customer Service

What is Amanda’s favorite feature of FoodReady? “My number one reason for choosing Food Ready is the customer service. The speed of resolution and response to how-to questions is unmatched. FoodReady does a wonderful job of making me feel like a priority rather than an afterthought, “ said Amanda Turner, QA Manager.
