Spec-First Approach

Digitize specs and share them across your network (departments, suppliers, co-mans, etc.). This instantly cuts down on issues due to outdated specs.

Built-In Intelligence

Set up guardrails to prevent quality issues from occurring (i.e. this spec can’t go to this finished good because of an allergen claim).

360 Degree View of Quality

Automate & ingest other data (i.e. production & supplier) to get a 360 degree view of your products. You’d be amazed at what real-time vs. weekly data reveals.

Insights & Reporting

Analyze meaningful data as it relates to your products (i.e. root cause analysis that reveals what went wrong and how).

What It Enables

Supply Chain Traceability 

Most quality issues result from poor specification management. By establishing specification data as the center of your quality universe, you can create traceability and better identify and manage risk across the supply chain.

With Specright, you can easily log quality records like SCARS and customer complaints and link data such as lot codes to specifications or finished goods. This enables root cause analysis for increased speed-to-resolution. 

Quality Automation & Audits

Supply chain risk is very real and comes in different forms: food safety, mislabeling, the list goes on. 

With Specright, quality professionals can automate data streams from suppliers and auto-scores critical data points such as COAs against acceptable baselines to quickly flag issues as soon as they happen.

Supplier Collaboration & Document Management

When a specification is changed or updated, suppliers linked to that specification are automatically notified via alerts, emails and in-platform notifications. Specright also makes it easy to manage documents such as policies, audits, insurance docs, and SOPs.

With Specright’s Supplier Documents feature, users can take action on static documents to add expiration dates, ensure files are attached, and trigger automatic certification renewals
