Hong Kong-based technology company OK is launching a new software as a service (SaaS) platform to assist in supply chain quality control. With a focus on transitioning to a circular economy, the company is looking to close supply chain loops and allow for collaborative inspections and sustainability reports from anyone in the chain.
COVID-19 made and continues to create complex issues and logistical challenges globally. Shortages of materials, workers and travel issues have all impacted the quality of products. Remote quality assurance has become critically essential, and OK’s design of an all-inclusive platform aims to solve the challenges that have recently slammed global production companies. A fresh approach to outdated market alternatives involves collaborative work and moving products through the supply chain with QR codes.
"Doing the right thing and doing it the right way should be easy. As demand for quality management, transparency, and sustainability grows, the need for an intuitive and lean solution does too. OK is set to grow with its customers well into the future," Kristofer Thorsel, founder of OK.
Transparent supply chain for all users
The global production industry is limited by inefficiencies to connect sellers with end-users. The error mostly comes from supplies not understanding how to properly network with buyers. OK’s new platform aims to bring visibility on all levels of the supply chain. OK QR labels can be scanned by workers anywhere to provide documentation and inspection of batches or single items. The customer also has the same benefits; issues can be reported faster and avoid supply chain hiccups along the way.
The user-friendly SaaS platform will open the supply chain to be more transparent and competitive. OK’s end goal is for companies to safeguard and continue with business growth despite roadblocks brought on by the pandemic.
