SafetyChain Software, leaders in Food Safety Chain Management Systems that Automate, Streamline & Improve Food Safety and Quality Assurance™ (FSQA), is pleased to announce the newest topic in its ongoing FSQA Tech Talk series, “The Economics of Food Quality Management” – taking place on June 25 at 10 a.m. PDT. Interested parties can learn more and register here.

The interactive webcast features industry thought leader Lamont Rumbers, President and Founder of Fully Integrated Quality Solutions (FIQS) and former Senior Director of Quality at Sam’s Club. Commented Mr. Rumbers, “While most FSQA professionals understand the importance of food safety, the complexities and overall economics of food quality management are often underestimated. And yet, Cost of Quality can have the biggest impact on a food company’s overall key performance indicators (KPIs), profitability and brand reputation. I look forward to participating in this valuable webcast to share insight and facilitate an interactive discussion on what I see as the economics of food quality.”

Topics Mr. Rumbers’ will discuss include:

  • Defining quality in your organization
  • Determining the “right” quality metrics through an understanding of Cost of Quality and Continuous Improvement
  • Improving visibility of process, product and supplier quality
  • Driving data to information to improve Economics of Quality
  • Making quality “business relevant” to gain buy-in for change
  • Understanding your quality-risk universe
  • Role of automation technologies to improve performance and lower the Cost of Quality
  • Mr. Rumbers will also take questions live from attendees.

Participants who would like to see how SafetyChain can help reduce Cost of Quality are invited to stay online after the FSQA Tech Talk for a 15 minute demo of SafetyChain’s Food Quality Management solution.
