Glanbia Performance Nutrition deliver a more efficient regulatory and compliance function with QADEX Vision

Market leaders of software specialising in food safety, quality management, compliance and product development, QADEX is a saviour for many businesses within the food industry.  One of QADEX’s many international clients has spoken out about its experience of installing and working with the software on a day-to-day basis, and the benefits are noteworthy for small and large businesses worldwide.

QADEX Vision software is responsible for ensuring businesses are fully compliant at all times, and has the power to decrease complaints, protect brand reputation and even reduce company costs – especially for smaller food businesses.

One such global business which has relied on QADEX for half a decade is Glanbia Performance Nutrition.  With more than €3 billion in revenues and 5,166 employees worldwide, Glanbia is a leading global performance nutrition and ingredients group.  However, its UK technical team, based in Middlesbrough, is relatively small to deal with the national scale of that part of the business.

Gill Dando, Supplier Quality Assurance Manager at Glanbia Performance Nutrition said, “After working with QADEX and Teresa, our dedicated QADEX Account Manager, I began to understand the power of the system.  Now that more and more suppliers are using it, its strengths continue to increase. It is like you get a whole technical admin department to bolt on to your business!”

QADEX Vision ultimately gives businesses the tools it needs to run effectively and efficiently.  For instance, the software automatically chases suppliers for certificates and specifications, and carries out risk assessments in a wide range of areas – allowing managers and administrators to focus on running a business.  The software is broken down into numerous modules which businesses can cherry pick depending on which is most relevant to their business, categorised into retailers and wholesalers, food manufacturing and processors and food service operators.

A spokesman for QADEX said, “We are now operating within 14,000 sites globally, with QADEX Vision regarded as an essential business tool.  We don’t just sell software, we work in partnership with our customers, and as we are founded and managed by experienced food industry professionals we understand the day-to-day challenges.”

Working in partnership with Glanbia, the QADEX team have tailored a mini-specification module as the standard one was too large for the company.  All ingredients are now linked by SAP number, reducing errors and saving time, resulting in a much more efficient regulatory and compliance department. Additionally, the company have used the contact function regularly to help with mass marketing messages and requests for compliance and regulatory responses, which has saved a lot of administration.

Ms Dando added, “Overall I feel like we have 24/7 support and not just faceless- I feel I know the team at QADEX so well they are like part of the family! They always go above and beyond and without them we would have not been so far advanced with our supplier assurance strategies- that’s for certain.”
