Organizations in the Consumer Packaged Goods sector are seeking to streamline processes, accelerate time to market and improve quality, all while driving innovation. Blueprint and Storyteller help realize these goals while ensuring that Business and IT interests are aligned.

  • Collaborate

    Our solutions help diverse groups of business and IT stakeholders around the globe easily collaborate to drive consensus and resolution as they innovate on large CPG industry initiatives. Discussions and comments are saved in a shared, centralized repository, so the organization can always reference why important decisions were made.

  • Achieve, Maintain, and Prove Compliance

    Compliance with the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and regulations, like 21 CFR Part 11 and GMP Annex 11, policies, and best practices ensures quality, reduces risk, and prevents the costly consequences of non-compliance.
