I'm an SQF Practitioner in a paper food packaging manufacturing company, and our current SQF system relies on paper control copies of documents that are stamped and physically signed by each required approver. I'm looking to start keeping only digital copies of control docs and records to streamline our system, but I'm running into a bit of a roadblock when it comes to the digital signatures for our control docs.
Just wondering how you manage digital/electronic document approvals? We are open to purchasing new software or additional licenses through software we already have (such as Adobe). We do also have SharePoint in our organization so if any of you use that it may also work for us.
My manager seems to think that if we all pick a different font and have a register of the font we picked and who it corresponds to, then that would be okay for everyone to just type their "signature" and date in the required field in the word document. But I don't really think that would hold much water with an auditor?
Thanks in advance!
