SCS Adopts RizePoint’s Best-in-Class Solution to Collect & Analyze Audit Data & Drive Efficient Corrective Action Process for Clients
SCS Global Services (SCS) — an internationally recognized third-party certifier of food quality, safety, and sustainability claims — has partnered with RizePoint — a technology leader in the food safety, quality management, compliance, and social responsibility space — to streamline third-party audits and compliance management processes. SCS’ adoption of the RizePoint platform is initially focused on administration and submission of audits according to the GLOBALG.A.P. standard.
GLOBALG.A.P. is a trademark and a set of standards for good agricultural practices (G.A.P.). With the leading mobile auditing platform in the marketplace, RizePoint is one of the first audit technology partners approved to submit audit results via the GLOBALG.A.P. Audit Online Hub in accordance with the newest audit submission requirements. These important processes help farmers, growers, and other producers demonstrate that they meet GLOBALG.A.P. standards and earn the prestigious GLOBALG.A.P. certification.
“RizePoint provides everything that SCS needs to deliver GLOBALG.A.P. certifications in an easy-to-use mobile app and quality management platform,” said RizePoint President Kari Hensien. “Our off-the-shelf solution makes the auditing process accurate, easy, efficient, and valid. And our integration with GLOBALG.A.P. makes the submission process seamless so producers can get certified sooner.”
“RizePoint’s platform allows SCS to strengthen our service delivery and partnership with GLOBALG.A.P. through API integration to ensure complete data transfer,” said Bonnie Holman, Director, Sustainable Agriculture at SCS. “The mobile auditing app supports streamlined compliance verification and efficient collection and communication of audit information to our clients in meaningful reports. We can also provide data analysis for large supply chains to better under how their audit data translates to performance and risk.”
“When we partnered with RizePoint last year, this is exactly the way we intended our collaboration to work,” said Roberta Anderson, Executive Vice President of GLOBALG.A.P. North America. “RizePoint’s digital solutions seamlessly integrate with the GLOBALG.A.P. system, helping producers meet the new submission requirements.”
