What is EQMS?

Enterprise Quality Management Software - EQMS?

EQMS is one of the most noticeable rising software that can manage business processes for quality and compliance across the value chain. Not only is it a platform that facilitates cross-functional communication it empowers smoother way to collaborate in your organisation.

With quality management as a base, EQMS can be integrated with existing IT infrastructures, systems or other software.

Generally organisations use paper-based or spreadsheets to manually monitor and manage quality, however these ways of working that once seemed ideal have become obsolete and unable to address the rising complexities of today’s markets and increase demand to comply with ever changing legislation.

Although best practices and management systems behind quality management have remained consistent for decades, the systems and solutions used to ensure the production, delivery of high-quality products and customer satisfaction have changed significantly.

With developments in technology, there’s been considerable movement toward companies either implementing their own custom quality solutions, many of them developed internally. Sadly a vast majority of have failed to meet business and technical expectations required by regulatory organisations.

Improvements with these systems were often localised, and lacked the global visibility needed to truly manage quality. With the need in the market, a new software category has emerged, EQMS.
