Managing compliance paperwork is a headache for retailers large and small, with real risks that can potentially lead to disruptions in operations, shutdowns and loss of revenue. And, with the disruption that COVID-19 has caused to both businesses and government services, it is easy for licenses and certification renewals to fall through the cracks.
For years, office staff and store managers have used cumbersome, hard-to-maintain Excel spreadsheets to record and track permit, license and certification renewals. In the quest to produce copies of permits and licenses for inspectors on a moment’s notice, retail management company StrasGlobal revolutionized the management of critical time-sensitive documents with Compliance Safe software.
With the closure of regulatory agencies and renewal notices not being issued or received, as happened during the COVID-19 crisis, Compliance Safe is an essential tool. Since all permits and licenses are filed in Compliance Safe’s cloud storage, authorized employees, regardless of location, have secure electronic access to the documents necessary to provide proof of compliance. With dispersed staff working from home or on unexpected leave, the Compliance Safe platform facilitates 24/7 access to documents for any needed communication with suppliers, vendors, regulatory inspectors and financial institutions.
It’s becoming increasingly evident that new sanitation and health safety regulations will soon be established as a result of COVID-19. Compliance Safe will enable retailers to be confident about the validity of their permits and that they are in compliance with the new regulations.
As NYACS president Jim Calvin recently asserted, a positive outcome from COVID-19 has been discovering that certain office and support functions can be performed remotely–with the right technology and a lot of patience.
