Muddy Boots has been working closely with Morrisons over the last 5 years, to equip them with software solutions to enhance their current work processes, help ensure that industry standards are being achieved and that the quality of their products meet consumer requirements.
As an ongoing companywide project, Morrisons has begun rolling out Greenlight Quality Management software across all their depots and manufacturing sites. The latest manufacturing operation to adopt this new solution is the Cutler site in Bradford who, like many other manufacturers across the country, were using paper based systems as a means of recording their compliance and quality checks.
"Our business recently made the change from paper based checks to checks using Greenlight Quality Management software on iPads” comments Antony Powell, Technical Systems Manager at Cutler. “The initial roll-out was done against our label compliance and pre-start checks as these were identified as key due to their frequency and the fact that they are both crucial for compliance to food safety and legal requirements”.
Commenting on how the software solution has been received so far Powell continues “Muddy Boots fully supported us with training to our colleagues who would be performing the checks and the site management teams who would be looking after training and managing the system going forward. What was key to the success was the support provided by Muddy Boots on the shop floor. Post training the Muddy Boots team spent hours on the production lines, ensuring that all colleagues were confident with using the system and to answer any of their questions”.
By adopting Greenlight Quality Management Morrisons is now able to centrally configure and manage their product and process control assessments, carry out checks and report on their performance across multiple sites. Checking on the progress of the Cutler site one month after launch, we’ve discovered that there has been a significant increase in the number of checks being performed on a regular basis and an increased interest from site employees as to when other check types are likely to follow suit.
