Baking Tech 2014 to be held March 2-4, 2014 in Chicago, IL.

Jerry Van Oort, CEO of intRAtrain™ and inspectiTRAC™ by Russell Associates is preparing to present as part of a panel discussion at the upcoming Baking Tech 2014 event sponsored by the American Society of Baking. The event will be held March 2-4, 2014 in Chicago, IL. Van Oort will be part of a panel group presenting issues related to Inspections/Regulations. His portion of the panel presentation will focus on “The Future of Quality Inspections in the Food Industry is a Mobile Solution”.

The session will focus on how the competitive business environment in the food industry and all industries acts as a driver for organizations to seek methods they can use to improve the performance of the organization while reducing respective costs. Companies have found that the ability to automate internal audits, inspections and observations has resulted in reduced time requirements compared to paper-based inspections while still providing accurate and complete data. Additionally, it has been found that the automation of inspections and audits improves the timeliness of data availability resulting in faster turnaround time to resolve critical compliance concerns.

inspectiTRAC™, which is available by Russell Associates, is one possible mobile solution available for automating the inspection and audit process. inspectiTRAC™ provides companies with the tools needed to reduce costs associated with inspections, audits, and observations. This software, designed for client customization in a wide range of businesses and industries, reduces employee inspection data collection and transfer time while increasing data accuracy. The tablet-based software is designed to make the inspection and auditing process trouble-free by integrating the inspection/audit criteria and location visuals directly into the program design, thus reduces the time needed to complete inspections while also reducing errors in data entry. The system links seamlessly with inspectiTRAC™ Manager, a cloud-based management tool for reporting, alerting, and scheduling audits and inspections; and inspectiTRAC™ Administrator, a platform for creating and editing the maps and inspection criteria used by the inspectiTRAC™ data collector program.

Van Oort comments, “Automating the inspection and audit process results in major time savings for companies. I don’t think most organizations understand how much time is required to complete their regular audits, inspections and observations until they more closely examine their processes. It is very rewarding for me to help companies take the first step to saving thousands by simplifying and automating a normally very time consuming process.”

Registration for Baking Tech 2014 is still available. In addition to Van Oort’s session, many other informative sessions will be presented. For more information about Baking Tech 2014, visit the American Society of Baking’s conference website at
