Product News: IQMS Adds Quality Auditing to Leading ERP Solution

New version of EnterpriseIQ is able to track and ensure superior manufacturing processes.

Published: Monday, April 12, 2010 - 08:35

(IQMS: Paso Robles, CA) -- IQMS, an innovator in the design and development of extended enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, recently announced the release of its Quality Audit Module, the most recent addition to the IQMS EnterpriseIQ suite of products. Using the new Quality Audit Module, manufacturers can ensure they meet industry and corporate compliance measures, efficiently audit internal and external processes, and uncover crucial areas for improvement.

As with all the EnterpriseIQ modules and offerings, the Quality Audit Module is a fully integrated component to IQMS’ single-database ERP system that doesn’t require costly third party systems or partners. As a result, manufacturers can connect to all other aspects of their operations through one unified system. Within the audit module, customers can assess inventory, bills of material, corrective actions, and shipping. Additionally, the IQMS Quality Audit Module brings added efficiency with automated administration tasks such as scheduling an audit, adding the scheduled item to the CRM calendar, or creating a meeting for the audit in EnterpriseIQ CRM or Microsoft Outlook.

“Performing audit functionalities is an important part of many manufacturing companies. Working closely with our customers, the IQMS development team identified the need for an audit module and worked quickly to extend the capability through our solution,” says Glenn Nowak, vice president at IQMS. “IQMS continuously collaborates with manufacturers across a broad range of industries and we are committed to offering complete functionality within a single database ERP system. The EnterpriseIQ Quality Audit Module is the latest installment of our dedication to our customers.”

In the medical manufacturing industry, standards such as the Food and Drug Administration’s good manufacturing practice (GMP) require quality auditing as part of compliance regulations. These standards have proven to increase the quality of the manufacturing process and end products, and are being adopted across various other industries. Using IQMS’ fully integrated Quality Audit Module, manufacturers can gain this enhanced operational excellence as part of the complete EnterpriseIQ ERP solution.

EnterpriseIQ users who add the module will be able to audit internal and external processes, such as packing slips, products, suppliers, and customer complaint forms. Using embedded workflow functionality, workflow Gantt charts and document control, the Quality Audit Module can audit an overall process, or a specific part of the process.

The Quality Audit Module is available in EnterpriseIQ 7.7 release.
