Quality Systems Innovations, Inc. has designed a Supplier Certification and Management Program.  It will help prepare you to manage all of your procurement activities efficiently and effectively.  Areas of concern to you are:

         Supply Chain Management

         Outsourcing or Offshoring

         Just-in-Time (JIT) Procurement

         Investment and overhead required for your Supplier Certification and Management Process

You no longer need to accept the high costs of supplier and internal procurement inefficiencies.  Our supplier quality system is designed to maintain high quality in products from your suppliers at lower cost to you.  Our system is directed at:

         Maximizing the effectiveness of supplier quality organizations

         Continuous improvements in methods and products

         Reducing your quality costs by making better use of the resources that you and your suppliers have

Quality Systems Innovations, Inc. provides the documentation you need to design and implement your Supplier Certification and Management Program.  Due to its unique design, your documentation can be uploaded to your company web site and viewed through a web browser or any Smartphone.  You can collaborate with your suppliers and team members anywhere in the world. 

As your supplier management program matures, you will be able to reduce and eventually eliminate receiving inspection and pass incoming material directly to stock.  The level of receiving inspection will be based on the importance of the item and the suppliers’ control methods and performance. 

Need to comply with FDA CFR 21 Part 820?


 In addition to being a world-class supplier management program, our Supplier Certification and Management Program also meets the requirements of FDA CFR 21 Part 820.50 Purchasing Controls.

Inventory Management and Lot Tracking Software for Food 

AO: Rapid Inventory simplifies lot number tracking. If you are a food and beverage distributor and/or manufacturer, you understand the importance of having total control over your supply chain. Using an inventory management system that supports lot number tracking is the first and most important step in controlling the supply chain. Lot traceability is enhanced by an inventory management system that can effectively receive, move, and ship your product while efficiently and accurately recording lot numbers at the box or pallet level. This is possible without the integration of an advanced system, but the labor, time, and energy costs of capturing lot data increase exponentially when done without a wireless bar code scanning solution. AO: Rapid Inventory™ simplifies lot number tracking into an easy step in the standard receiving and picking process. In addition, in the case of a recall, Rapid Inventory provides easy functionality for tracking which sales orders contained the recalled items. Free 30 day trial.
