Achatz Handmade Pie is adopting the ReposiTrak Compliance and Risk Management Solution to automate compliance documentation from its suppliers. The ReposiTrak platform provides retailers and suppliers with a robust solution suite to help enhance operational control and increase sales, while enabling them to protect their brands, reduce risk and remain in compliance with regulatory requirements.
Wendy and David Achatz started the pie-making company in their kitchen in Armada Township, Michigan, in 1993. Today, the company is based in Chesterfield, Michigan, where it produces pies and baked goods. Achatz Handmade Pie sells goods at its six store locations as well as through several wholesalers throughout the U.S. and Canada. As a baker supplying wholesalers, Achatz Handmaid Pie was already using the ReposiTrak platform to verify compliance with customers when it decided to have its suppliers use the platform for the same purpose.
“We chose the ReposiTrak Solution for our suppliers,” said David Achatz, “because it will allow us to automate the process of certifying suppliers for compliance. “
The company’s Safe Quality Food (SQF) practitioner Jo Ann Austin said, “ReposiTrak will save us considerable time as we won’t have to chase down all the regulatory paperwork from vendors every year.”
The Compliance and Risk Management suite deployed by Achatz Handmade Pie includes food safety and compliance solutions.
“ReposiTrak will help improve supplier compliance for Achatz Handmade Pie so its SQF audits will be conducted with much less work,” said Randy Fields, chairman and CEO of ReposiTrak. “We provide them with a customer success team of professionals to do the supplier follow up on their behalf so Achatz Handmade Pie can have faster and more complete compliance with document and records requests. No other compliance management company combines word class technology with the people resources required to achieve high levels of compliance.”
The ReposiTrak Speed Retail Platform consists of three product families; Compliance & Risk Management; Supply Chain Solutions and MarketPlace Sourcing; and B2B Commerce. They are delivered via one technology platform.
