Flowtify

Within the European Union, all companies working with food products must provide their own complete and traceable hygiene documentation. This is almost always conducted in paper form. However, these checklists throw up a number of risks: they are easy to manipulate, the documentation is fragmented, and instructions for action often arrive far too late. The administrative burden posed by printing, distribution, collection, monitoring and archiving for two to five years presents a major strain for all parties involved.

Flowtify helps in implementing HACCP documents in a complete and traceable fashion in accordance with EU Regulation 852/2004 on tablets and smartphones.
