Share-ify PLM helps companies more easily manage their branded or private label product with greater precision and shorter time to market.
Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) is a business solution which aims to streamline the flow of information about the product and related processes throughout the product’s lifecycle such that the right information in the right context at the right time can be made available. Yet, few organizations are positioned to reap the true benefits of PLM. One major reason for this is a lack of clear understanding of what PLM is, its core features and functions, and its relationship to software tools.
PLM is the process of getting departments, teams, and vendors aligned to manage complex product information, artwork, engineering, and manufacturing workflows to quickly and succinctly bring a product to market and follow it through its lifecycle.
With a focus in the food & beverage, consumer packaged goods, chemical, paper goods, and disposables industries, Share-ify helps companies connect people, processes, and data across the entire product life cycle to a de-centralized repository of information. Everyone from your product development and marketing team to the end-customer can be on the same page, sharing the same up-to-date product definition.
The most significant goal for every product lifecycle tool is to reduce the cycles that it takes to successfully bring a product to market. But bringing a product to market is not the end of the cycle. Efficiency and consistency help keep the product in market successfully.
Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software helps you more easily manage your company relationships. Whether ensuring your supplier’s paperwork is updated or sharing your product information with a customer, Share-ify CRM offers you a solution designed to help you manage a complex supply chain.
While traditional CRM focuses on customer interactions, Share-ify includes the ability to manage upstream and downstream relationships such as trading partners and suppliers. These relationships often involve more active management to ensure compliance to corporate standards as well as adherence to agreed upon terms.
Ver-ify Product Inspections
Share-ify’s Ver-ify™ product inspections tool helps companies evaluate the quality of product being received from suppliers at point of distribution or at point of receipt. It also helps improve on your brand standards at shipping.
Share-ify’s Ver-ify™ assists your quality control, sales, and purchasing teams with efficient methods of product inspections so you can better communicate product quality in real time based on your product specifications or a USDA grading standard. Ver-ify™ improves the methods and processes by which you evaluate product arriving at your location (s).
Share-ify’s Ver-ify™ also helps with shipping inspections. When companies have customers with specific product requests, it can be costly to send them product that doesn’t meet their quality expectations. Ver-ify can be set-up to help shipping professionals evaluate product prior to being loaded on the truck. This saves time and money and reinforces your brand standards with customers.
Alert-ify- Incidents & Product Recalls
Share-ify’s Alert-ify solution helps companies engage with their remote locations more effectively for product recalls and market withdrawals.
Alert-ify helps you effectively remove products from your supply chain with the least amount of impact to your business and your customer’s businesses.
Should an incident occur at a remote location, users can log the issue via Alert-ify to help begin the workflow process for resolution and credits (if needed).
Product Recalls and Market Withdrawals occur every day around the world. Our goal is to help you initiate an organized and efficient effort to address the issue at hand so you remove risk from your supply chain and get back to managing your business.
Using a solution designed to assist with product recalls and market withdrawals reduces the inherent stress involved in withdrawing product from your supply chain.
Once companies decide to initiate the recall or withdrawal, a work flow is sent to a recipient list via Alert-ify. The contacts then walk through the steps of the workflow based on whether they are impacted or not. The goal is to have the entire incident closed in less than 2 hours. Real time reporting is provided to the Alert-ify administrator so they know how much product has been withdrawn, who needs replenishing, and who has not yet responded.
Safety Data Sheets (SDS)
Hazard Management includes the critical component of managing Safety Data Sheets (SDS) formerly known as MSDS. This means managing all necessary documents for Corporate Safety & Hazard Management.
Companies are subject to the United States Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Hazard Communication Standard 29 CFR 1910.1200 and are required, by law, to produce Safety Data Sheets with their products.
If you are still using old 3-ring binder, Share-ify can assist you with becoming paperless. Managing multiple systems for your safety management and chemicals is no longer necessary.
Be a part of the important trend to move documents online and more easily comply with federal law. Now your company can get access to everything you need for Safety Data Sheet (SDS) Management in one central location.
Environmental, Social Responsibility, Governance (ESG)
Companies are identifying Environmental, Social, and Governance program as a key component of public, non-financial reporting to investors and other stakeholders. ESG is a way of evaluating a company by standards and metrics that do not commonly relate to financial performance but more about their role as “good stewards.”
Some common examples include the following:
The Environmental Social and Governance factors are a subset of non-financial performance indicators which include ethical, sustainable and corporate government issues. This means making sure there are systems in place to ensure accountability and managing the corporation’s ESG objectives.
Each industry and company has its own set of material ESG issues and related business impacts. ESG data and records cover a broad realm that may depend on geography, leadership priorities, and other factors.
Work-ify Production Controls & Plant Management
Work-ify includes a broad set of features that assist companies with managing tasks and workflows according to plans (food safety, quality assurance, sanitation, pest control, specification approvals, etc.).
Work-ify’s Production Controls and Plant Management module helps transition companies to paperless production logs for Quality Assurance, Food Safety, Maintenance, and other Prerequisite Program (PRP).
