Dairy Giant Continues to Deliver With AuditComply

The audit solution provides 360-degree, real-time visibility into nonconformance status and completion

Published: Wednesday, May 9, 2018 - 11:00

(AuditComply: Belfast, Ireland) -- AuditComply has announced the ongoing use of its AuditComply platform by KDD, a Kuwait-based company. Specializing in the production and distribution of 125 dairy products, KDD is committed to quality and excellence in all that it does. KDD’s strong focus on quality management has contributed to its significant growth during the past 50 years.

KDD required a solution that could provide 360-degree, real-time visibility into nonconformance status and completion, all from one centralized system. In 2016, the company underwent a great digital transformation, one that would shape its quality team for years to come: It selected AuditComply to eliminate the use of paper and reduce the need for manual processes.

By streamlining the approach to document control and reducing the use of paper, KDD increased productivity by a staggering 50 percent across its quality team, leading to a successful ISO 22000 accreditation. AuditComply saved time, reduced costs, and boosted productivity.

Fuelled with the ability to assign and schedule audits in app and via desktop platforms, workflows throughout KDD improved dramatically. KDD was also impressed by AuditComply’s flexibility and ease of use, which provided greater visibility across all sites and departments. Automatic report generation and a data-intensive analytics dashboard provided KDD with everything it needs to meet its present and future quality requirements.

This announcement comes at an exciting time for the AuditComply. Last month the company celebrated its four-year anniversary. “In 2017, AuditComply saw rapid growth in quarterly sales and users,” says Susan Fitzsimmons, COO of AuditComply. “We currently have a 100-percent retention rate, demonstrating the level of trust and confidence our current customers have to keep them going in the right direction. It is amazing to be part of such a fantastic team, building a solution that really meets both the market and customer demands. Thanks to everyone at AuditComply, all our customers and our partners for being part of the journey.”

Toward the end of 2017 AuditComply saw a large investment as part of the strategic partnership between First Derivatives and BGF. “As a high-tech startup going through significant growth, we are very excited to be working with BGF and First Derivatives to help grow the company and become a leader in enterprise risk management,” says. Kevin Donaghy, CEO at AuditComply “With customers in healthcare, automotive, manufacturing, and retail, we need the support of our partners to capitalize on this exciting market.”

In a time when compliance and quality is the life or death of any organization, clients are securing their operations using AuditComply. Organizations in six continents rely upon AuditComply to mitigate risk, improve quality, and drive their compliance requirements. The Belfast-based company operates across multiple industries including:
• Food and beverage
• Manufacturing
• Financial services
• Aviation
• Healthcare
• Certification bodies

From initial idea to global success in four years, AuditComply’s solution remains the only product that meets the risk and performance management needs of high-profile organizations.

“The visibility and automation of AuditComply is tremendously important to the process control of our business,” says Ted Roberts, quality assurance manager at KDD “In this part of the world, manufacturers like KDD rely on world-class processing equipment and automation, and AuditComply allows us to be very well supported in that regard.”

“AuditComply is thrilled that KDD has continued to entrust us to uphold their quality requirements,” says Fitzsimmons. “For KDD, AuditComply is the perfect fit to meet their everyday quality needs. This opportunity is a powerful endorsement of the AuditComply technology as we provide them with the scalable solution to meet continuous growth plans.”
