You can always tell a business leader who is drowning in administration and staff who are frustrated with clunky business systems.
It’s that tic in the eye when someone mentions an Excel spreadsheet or the wince from a staff member who has mistakenly left an important piece of paper at home!
So, when you’re creating and implementing a new quality management system and aiming for the international standard ISO 9001, it’s worth examining whether you should be using quality compliance software.
Even if you already have a paper or spreadsheet system in place, it’s worth finding out more about software to streamline your processes.
What are the problems with paper/spreadsheet quality management systems?
Paper systems need to be held in one place in an organisation or business, so it can be difficult to get copies of documents you need such as certificates or checklists, especially if you’re in a different business location.
Documents can also go missing just when you or an auditor need them.
Spreadsheets can be held and managed by one person or made available via work sharing tools, but they can feel unwieldy to use and confusing to analyse.
Both systems run the risk that multiple people adding in information could result in documents or data being lost or stored in the wrong place.
How does quality compliance software make you more efficient?
Software such as Mango allows you to store everything you need online to ensure your quality systems are robust and compliant.
Because it documents and links related policies, procedures, and forms, its simple to use and helps you and your staff understand why quality and quality control is important in an integrated way.
That gives you an audit trail to prove you meet the requirements of the ISO 9001 standard, helping you to achieve it or renew it.
Wherever you are, you’ll be able to access the documents you need online, and you’ll be able to investigate non-conformance wherever you are.
The system gives you real time data, so you’ll be able to monitor its effectiveness in real time too.
Mango makes your system efficient and it also gives you access to audit apps.
