Quality Management Systems (QMS) have evolved over the years and transitioned from paper-based to digital. Many businesses still use outdated systems to manage risk and inefficiencies. If your company falls into this bucket, it may become too risky to continue delivering low-quality product or service delivery due to an inefficient or unsustainable QMS. What are the key benefits to change?
By automating critical quality processes in a single end-to-end solution, you can remove the audit and compliance burden. Quality processes that can be captured in a QMS including events, supplier and audit management, and even document training. There’s nothing more painful than being asked for documentation by an auditing body and not knowing where to find it. A QMS can help keep your organised with real-time data at your fingertips. Here, you can dive into the details, take necessary actions quickly, and share them with auditing bodies.
When quality data is collected and integrated, it becomes a business-wide commodity and has the power to influence change and improvement across the entire business. If there are any queries or necessary actions, you can raise them within the system, assign tasks and responsibilities to people within your organisation and report on activity. A QMS can deliver the transparency of accountabilities and highlight areas that may require attention. The adaptable platform connects systems, people and processes together to deliver an efficient solution. You may find that a QMS helps manage complaints, policy and procedures, and even incidents within the business.
Improved Risk Management
If risk management is incorporated in QMS, you can take actions to ensure that any anticipated problems do not occur, and that steps are in place to manage them if they do. In a QMS you can map out your systematic process for risk management. These may include identification of risks, assessments, any controls, communication and review elements.
Centralising the management of activity within the organisation can create improvements. The integrated data can be used to create feedback loops, assign actions and tasks. The key to continuous improvements is setting realistic deadlines and tracking the status and progress of these items.
