Trailblazing Audit Data Analysis Project
Together, the Safe Quality Food Institute (SQFI) and Intact completed a trailblazing audit data analysis pilot project. Through intense collaboration in 2021, the two organizations were able to set up an entirely new way to identify and analyze critical audit results in large-scale audit data, utilizing modern technology like artificial intelligence (AI) and language processing.
The initiative allows SQFI to cross analyze their audit data to provide different analysis of the audit process within all of their audit data. This not only enables them to adjust their strategy to optimize outcomes but to strengthen their integrity approach.
A Glimpse into the Future
Going forward, integrity programs like this will become a useful tool for reporting data. GFSI requires all of its recognized programs to introduce procedures to monitor and increase integrity to further improve industry standards and auditor and certification body performance. The collaboration with Intact gives a glimpse into the future and shows how modern solutions can be leveraged to optimize integrity.
In this case, the two partners implemented Intact Analytics – the first AI-powered full-service audit and certification data analysis solution on the market. Intact Analytics relies on artificial intelligence, machine learning, and natural language processing to offer its users a fully automated analysis and review platform.
The shared audit integrity project marks one of the first Intact Analytics implementations of that scale.
“The analytics tool that was built by Intact provides us with a visualization of the data and means to identify and predict food safety issues so we can share best practices to improve food safety along the supply chain,”
“We are incredibly proud of our achievements with SQFI. We have been building Intact Analytics for close to six years now and it is amazing to see it in action with each new large-scale implementation project. What we have done with SQFI presents an outlook into the many possibilities the tool will offer certification and standards businesses in the future. Furthermore, it is a true milestone in integrity management, and we are thrilled to contribute to the development of this vital industry segment,”
