RizePoint Supports Additional GLOBALG.A.P. Standards, Provides a Broader Range of Audit Solutions for Certification Bodies

SALT LAKE CITY, Mar. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- RizePoint, a technology leader in the food safety, quality management, compliance, and social responsibility space, now supports additional GLOBALG.A.P. standards, including the Harmonized Produce Safety Standard (HPSS), Produce Handling Assurance (PHA) standard, and the Add-On NURTURE Module. RizePoint, which offers the leading mobile auditing platform in the marketplace, now enables Certification Bodies to administer and digitally submit a wider variety of GLOBALG.A.P. audits to meet expanded digital submission requirements to serve a broader client base.

GLOBALG.A.P. is a leading global certification program, offering a set of standards for good agricultural practices. Farmers, growers, and other producers who demonstrate that they meet GLOBALG.A.P. standards through independent inspection are granted the prestigious GLOBALG.A.P. certification.

As an IT solution provider to the Certifying Bodies conducting inspections, RizePoint already offers GLOBALG.A.P.'s Integrated Farm Assurance (IFA) audits via its Mobile Auditor app and SaaS product suite. Additionally, RizePoint was one of the first audit technology partners approved to submit IFA results from Certifying Bodies to GLOBALG.A.P. via the GLOBALG.A.P. API in accordance with new audit submission requirements.

"We have expanded our support to include the additional programs that GLOBALG.A.P offers. We're proud to help Certifying Bodies conduct a broader range of audits, serving more farmers, growers and producers. RizePoint's off-the-shelf auditing solution makes the process accurate, easy, efficient, and valid. And our integration with GLOBALG.A.P. makes the submission process seamless between systems so producers can get certified sooner," explained Matt Regusci, RizePoint's Chief Relationship Officer.

Certifying Bodies can use the RizePoint Mobile Auditor app with its pre-built Inspection Methods and Justification Guidelines checklists to easily administer the GLOBALG.A.P. standards, including HPSS, PHA, IFA, and NURTURE Module Add-on. Using RizePoint's mobile app, audit information is collected for each producer, feedback reports are generated for review, and immediate corrective actions can be implemented as needed.

"Producers often have multiple locations that need regular auditing. RizePoint empowers Certifying Bodies to audit, assess results, and determine when and if corrective actions must be taken across all their locations and business models. RizePoint's best-in-class solution is complete, comprehensive, and user-friendly, boosting visibility and transparency and integrating seamlessly with the GLOBALG.A.P. system," Regusci added.
