GLOBALG.A.P. and QLBS have been working together to bring certification bodies an easy-to-use cloud option for conducting GLOBALG.A.P inspections and audits, and uploading data.
QLBS has spent the last 10 years developing the universal cloud platform QuantumLeap. The solution has proved particularly suitable for the agricultural industry, with a number of organisations using the platform for certification and quality assurance. It is already transforming auditing in the New Zealand wine, kiwi fruit, and avocado industries and has now made its way to Europe. Recently, QLBS integrated QuantumLeap with the GLOBALG.A.P. Audit Online platform to enable seamless reporting.
Andras Fekete, VP and Chief Integrity Officer of GLOBALG.A.P.
“GLOBALG.A.P. has been looking for solution providers to help certification bodies complete inspections and audits more easily and with reduced complexity and cost to the producer. QLBS has been using smart cloud technology to support the industry in New Zealand. We are working with QLBS to provide a seamless flow of assessment data - from the farmer, through to the inspector or auditor to us - in order to make life easier for everyone"
Keith Phillips, CEO of QLBS
“The advantage of the cloud is that anyone with the right authority can have access to the assessment data through portals. Farmers can have their own portal for registration and self-assessment; an inspector or auditor can then build on that, recording answers, gathering evidence, and writing reports. The right information can be automatically sent to the right place and be seen by the right people, to provide confidence and trust in the food supply."
Jochen Baumgarten, VP and CTO of GLOBALG.A.P.
“We are pleased to support QLBS in offering an independent way for GLOBALG.A.P. approved certification bodies to meet our requirements for audit and inspection data reporting. With QuantumLeap Pro, certification bodies have the opportunity of getting an inspection and audit management tool that can be customized to their individual needs and is intended to connect seamlessly with the GLOBALG.A.P. Audit Online system to avoid double entry work. With the use of QuantumLeap, certification bodies can also choose to digitalize their business processes across schemes within their portfolio, to avoid having different procedures for each process."
