During production, or “DUPRO”, inspections are recommended when ordering a product for the first time or working with a new factory. During production inspections allow the buyer to find and address any defects, as they’re occurring, and address the causes to prevent them ending up in the final product.
The most effective way of preventing last minute quality related delays is by inspecting and monitoring the product early in the manufacturing process. By initiating a rigorous inspection weeks or even months before your shipment is due, we can ensure that the quality and timely delivery of your merchandise is never in jeopardy.
DUPRO and Early Production Inspections not only check the initial products coming off the line in a manner consistent with our Final Pre-Shipment Inspection techniques, but also check and document the status of raw materials, components, and partially finished goods.
You will receive a report containing information about production flow, equipment use, production capacity, and any potential issues or bottlenecks — all in an easy to understand format. After reviewing the findings with you, we will help you take any necessary corrective or preventative actions, ensuring that next-steps are understood and implemented by factory management.
You guys are quite efficient in making sure that you are in constant communication with our vendors to set up a time and day to have inspections handled... InTouch definitely pushed to make sure that inspections would be done in a timely manner. Any corrective actions that had to take place were executed well before the exit factory date.

Since InTouch does a more detailed inspection than what we had depended on with the factories, the quality of the products has improved. Where before when we might find 25 AQL defects, now it's down to three or four,because the factory knows that we want that cut back and InTouch is going to find it.

InTouch’s auditing reduced the level of risk, whether known or unknown, to our company. From the audit findings provided by InTouch, we were much more equipped to make the correct business decision with regard to an acceptable level of risk. The InTouch audit secured our decision making process.

One of our customers had been through multiple suppliers year after year and had been let down with returns and rejections. With InTouch as our eyes and ears on the ground, we retained that business for 5 years without one single rejection or complaint.
Director of Operations, MMI Textiles
The speed that we get the reports is always good. We had an experience with some other inspectors where we had to wait an extra day to get the reports. Getting the report as soon as we can is very important, so we can make a decision and give feedback back to the factory.

From beginning to end, InTouch is so easy to work with. The inspection report is literally there the next morning when I come into work. It really makes my job easier.
