- Quality forms, for example a Change Control or CAPA form, can include any document, image or file directly in the quality form so that teams have everything they need in a single place. All of these items are also fully version controlled so that everyone knows they are working with the latest version of the document or file.
- Dashboards report quality metrics in real-time. The dashboards provide a complete overview of quality information across the whole quality management system. They are also interactive, just click for more detail.
Quality documents, for example SOPs, can also be managed in the same system. Real-time dashboards keep track of reviews and approvals for all quality documents. There are workflows to automatically route quality documents for review or approval and notifications to alert reviewers to pending or delayed tasks. Audit trails show change histories and electronic signatures record approval.
QMS for Content Suite is flexible and is configurable to the quality processes and forms that suit your organization. Rather than providing 'off-the-shelf' processes and forms that your organization must make significant changes to work with, QMS provides a core framework for you to overlay the processes and documentation that you need.
Connected processes & information flow: a Change Control can launch a CAPA and links are maintained so users can see exactly what triggered the CAPA. The essential information from the Change Control form will be automatically transferred and visible in the CAPA.
Integrate QMS with enterprise systems via xECM. For example, use xECM to link the QMS to SAP so that ERP data can flow into an NCP providing Supplier details.
