Kestrel is not a software company. Rather, we integrate and apply IT, along with compliance know-how to create technology solutions. Our team is made up of EHS, quality, and food safety professionals with the technology expertise to design and build scalable systems that allow you to more efficiently and effectively manage compliance and business processes.
Behind Kestrel’s systems, we have professionals with real-world industry experience, who understand your business and regulatory compliance obligations. This ensures that systems are built from the perspective of the people who will be using them—in the field, in the plant, in the office, in the board room—so they function the way you need them to.
Designing with the End in Mind
Kestrel’s objective on any technology-enabled business solution we provide is to design the system and modules with the end in mind. That means considering the company’s immediate issues/needs within the context of the overall business need, and then formulating platforms/systems, as required, into an aligned system. We look at the big-picture, desired state versus the current state, and determine how technology can be used to reach that end.
Considering the eight functions of compliance when designing a compliance Information Management System (IMS) helps define the starting point and build a vision for the “end point” when planning IMS improvements. These compliance functions translate into modules that are instrumental in establishing or improving a company’s capability to comply.
This experience creating compliance and business solutions using tools (i.e., Office 365) already available to you allows us to build scalable systems–systems that help you more efficiently and effectively manage compliance and business processes.
Scalable Management System Solutions
Kestrel’s information management systems and compliance efficiency tools are built on a Microsoft platform. We offer one platform with multiple customizable solutions to meet your business and overall compliance needs.
Our approach offers the following functionality and benefits:
Scalability. Our platform is scalable to ensure it meets organizational/business needs, as well as regulatory requirements. Your system will contain the parts and pieces your company needs to operate efficiently and in compliance with regulations, standards, and customer requirements.
Alignment. The system can be expanded to integrate, connect, and support multiple standards (e.g., ISO, FSSC, SQF, IFS, Responsible Distribution) and/or regulatory requirements. Integration of multiple management systems (e.g., environmental, health & safety, quality, food safety) into a single platform makes management more effective and efficient than when systems operate independently.
Accessibility. The central, web-based system is accessible from any location. Mobile access and forms allow you to capture data via phones, tablets, or PCs—anytime, anywhere—even in remote locations. Data are stored in the Cloud to improve data access/availability, generate real-time analytics, and create workflow and process automation.
Measurement. Data can be collected and compiled for review and analysis, as well as more sophisticated predictive analytics. Dashboards and reporting capabilities provide insights into system health, operational results, and business performance for senior management. A standardized approach for reporting further creates accountability and ongoing performance monitoring and measurement.
Easy Adoption. Building off a common Microsoft platform allows for easier adoption due to its familiarity. It also limits the number of solutions, software, and systems needed by a company, as well as the extra fees associated with additional software, such as license, user, and change fees.
