Whyte and Mackay, the global drinks brand company, is working with leading software vendor Ideagen to improve quality, safety and compliance management at its bottling operations.
Ideagen’s Q-Pulse software has been rolled out across Whyte and Mackay’s plant in Grangemouth, Scotland, to improve document and audit management and ease compliance with standards such as BRC.
Q-Pulse, an electronic quality management system, has replaced a series of paper based processes helping the organization improve all aspects of its operations, including enhancing levels of safety reporting.
Whyte and Mackay, based in Scotland and founded in 1844, produces single malt and blended Scotch whiskies, liqueurs and vodkas with brands including Whyte and Mackay Blended Scotch, The Dalmore, Jura and Fettercairn single malts; Glayva liqueur and Vladivar Vodka.
Since implementing the Q-Pulse software within its bottling plant, the company has extended the system to adopt processes linked with health and safety, near miss reporting and safety improvement programs.
