The new Bizcaps PIF Manager™ Partner Program brings all the benefits of a PIF™ portal within easy, affordable reach of small to medium food companies.
A PIF portal makes the compilation, management and sharing of Product Information Forms easier, faster, more efficient and more secure.
By going through one of Bizcaps Software’s trusted food technology and quality specialist Partners, smaller food companies with only a handful of PIFs can access and use a PIF portal at a fraction of the cost of licensing their own portal software.
Because the Excel-based V5 PIF™ is no longer supported by the Australian Food & Grocery Council and has not been updated since 2012, the AFGC recommends it should no longer be used.
The new online V6 PIF™ is purpose-built for today’s food industry, and Bizcaps PIF Manager Partner Program makes it simple and cost-effective for small manufacturers and distributors to reap the benefits by upgrading to the new system.
Our PIF Manager Partners are established food technology and quality specialists based across Australia who can also assist food companies with regulatory, compliance and quality review requirements, and provide all the expertise that only larger companies maintain inhouse.
Rob Clifton-Steele, CEO of Bizcaps Software said: “Access to a PIF portal makes the concept of one true source of product information a reality. Bizcaps is thrilled to extend the benefits of this to smaller food companies through our expert PIF Manager™ Partners.”
