PIF Manager Partners: Bringing PIF V6 benefits to small food companies
Generate, receive and exchange PIF files
The 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 (PIF) 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 one or a handful of PIFs can access and use a PIF portal without having to license their own portal software.
These PIF consultants will give you access to your required V6 PIF in their PIF Manager ™ V6 portal to create your PIF or PIFs, and once they have checked the record and confirmed it is complete they will generate the approved PIF that you can send electronically via the portal or email as a PDF to your customer.
PIF expertise on tap
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 larger companies maintain inhouse.
Companies wanting to create, store and share a small number of PIFs can contact these partners directly to discuss their needs.
Always the latest PIF
Because the Excel-based V5 PIF™ is no longer supported by the Australian Food & Grocery Council (AFGC) 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 this new system. And ensuring you are always using the latest version.
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.”
