The system: iMIS Food Portal
Because all systems are standardized, information can easily be shared between people and systems. Access rights can be set per user that making it possible only to use certain systems or only to read certain information. iMIS Food contains a management system for all operational chain data and can be aligned with existing systems. With iMIS Food Portal, all iMIS Food systems are centrally accessible in the chain. With iMIS Food Portal, everyone in the chain can access the following components: the handbook system, the legislation site, the calendar with the quality planning and inspection rounds carried out and approved product specifications. In addition, access can be given to the complaint handling system, conducting the audit system, the specification management system, and the bulletin board for questions and answers.

Application of iMIS Food Portal
With iMIS Food Portal, the entire company is involved in the quality system. All information about quality and food safety can be found on the Portal. It is possible to determine who has what rights to what information. For example, a distinction can be made in only being able to read the application instructions and procedures or being able to modify them. Business-critical information can also be treated as such. As a result, access to, for example, recipe information can be limited. With the central calendar, the inspection round planning can be communicated and monitored, among other things.
All information from suppliers can be handled in the iMIS Food portal system. Raw materials, packaging materials, cleaning agents, transport, and waste, for example, have a separate environment set up for this, in which specifications can be verified and updated. The centrally accessible handbook describes how to deal with suppliers. Supplier complaints and questionnaires can be handled online.
All customer information can be handled in the iMIS Food Portal system. This makes it clear who communicated what and when to which customer. The centrally accessible handbook describes how to deal with customers. Customer complaints and questionnaires can be handled online. Every customer can see the final product specifications in the desired format and is automatically kept informed of changes. If desired, a customer can also receive real-time reports of food safety compliance.
The relevant legislation is accessible from the iMIS Food Portal. In this, the entire chain can be kept informed about the legal issues. The site contains the following parts: an overview of Dutch legislation, an overview of relevant guidelines, new legislation by category and introduction, consolidated European regulations, and frequently asked questions. In the iMIS Food Portal system, legislative changes can be proactively anticipated via the bulletin board and ticket system.
Certifying institutions can see the quality information. iMIS Food is equipped for the certifying standard with real-time dashboards regarding Dutch HACCP, FSSC 22000, BRC Food, and IFS Food. Other standards can be added if desired. The iMIS Food Portal system contains a separate environment for certification with associated company-specific reports, handbook, and inspection rounds. A bulletin board is also available for handling the entire certification process, from quotation to contract to completing the corrective measures.
