Veeva helps cosmetics, consumer goods and chemical companies bring innovative, high quality products to market faster without compromising compliance.
Corrective and Preventive Action (CAPA) adherence is essential to your quality management software systems. It’s also the most time consuming, error prone, and costly effort in your quality control system.
QualityOne cuts hours of manual labor and corporate risk by integrating data and documents in one place with complete audit trails. You’ll be fully compliant with regulations like 21 CFR part 11, while rapidly identifying root causes using the 5 Whys Methodology to plan and implement corrective actions.
Reduce your compliance risk from every Corrective Action with tracked completion and closed loop visibility that reports on the effectiveness of each action after implementation.
Have complete management oversight and proactively identify trends across your processes with real-time dashboards.
You can quickly identify issues in the data and deploy your team to prevent non-conformances from ever reaching the market.
This gives you an automated approach to continuous improvement while reducing (and eventually eliminating) inspection and audit findings.
Link customer complaints to specific products, manufacturing sites, suppliers, and eQMS processes like CAPA or SCAR.
You’ll immediately catch trends from customer complaints, and deploy corrective actions that reduces your Cost of Quality.
Your most valuable asset - your customers - will notice prompt issue resolution, and fewer product issues over time.
"All the data is in one location. Not an audit out on a SharePoint site, and then an audit score in a supplier relationship management tool, and then deviation information somewhere else. By having it all in one system we can sort, we can query, and when you pull up a supplier you get all the information, whether it's a return material authorization, a deviation request, a SCAR, audit results, contact information, it's all right there at our fingertips now."
Sheryl Wreghitt, Supplier Development Manager, Uponor

Many businesses have started to migrate to cloud based quality management software in order to increase their data efficiency and overall productivity. It’s estimated that in 2020, 83% of workloads will migrate to the cloud, with security concerns being cited as the chief concern motivating businesses to incorporate cloud adoption.
So, what are the benefits of moving your processes, documents, and data to cloud based eQMS, and how does it compare with on-premise quality management software?

While many businesses still make use of on-premise quality management tools, the use of cloud based quality management software systems is becoming increasingly popular, especially as processes and technologies evolve.
While the use of on-premise systems keeps quality management in-house and in the hands of your internal IT department, cloud solutions are managed by your provider, and typically offer enhanced security options, support, customization, and data integration.
Many businesses are making the move towards a cloud eQMS based on five major factors:
Typically, most of the cost of moving to cloud hosted quality management software is incurred up front - from then on, costs related to the equipment (e.g. hardware) is covered by the vendor. This is one of the major differences between using cloud and on-premise quality management software as on-premise may require the purchase and maintenance of equipment by an in-house IT department.
In terms of systems maintenance, the cost to your business cloud eQMS being significantly lower, and in some cases, non-existent. This allows your internal IT department to focus on crucial tasks for the growth and productivity of the business, without the headache of continual application management issues.
In addition, many on-premise vendors for eQMS software will bill for any subsequent maintenance and support for software, whereas cloud eQMS software solutions typically avoid any of these recurring costs.
With cloud hosted quality management software , you can be assured that you will always have the most up to date capabilities and business intelligence features.
Where on-premise quality management software typically requires installations for updates, cloud quality management software allow for instant updates that ensure that your business doesn’t fall behind in terms of keeping track of quality issues and complaints.
New cloud based Quality Management Software (eQMS) is accessible in real time, providing you with superior data governance and the best possible data quality management tools at a fraction of the time (and cost) of an on-premise option.

This is one of the most valuable aspects of cloud based quality management. While on-premise data quality management often requires additional hardware, licensing, and infrastructures to get multiple users on the system, eQMS deployments only require a password and licenses for users. eQMS tend to be faster and more user-friendly, especially for monitoring quality.
eQMS software also offers users the ability to utilize software from mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. This enhances user efficiency, as mobile readiness allows data quality to be easily managed and maintained from anywhere, and at any time.
Changes like this can entirely shift the way your organization approaches quality management. You don’t need to wait for your entire team to be sitting together in one office panning through data. Rather, everyone on the team can make small efforts and conduct analysis whenever they have time and wherever they are. New insights can be more easily found, and meetings about quality become shorter and more focused.
Cloud based quality management software can grow as your business grows: features, users, memory and bandwidth can be scaled as is necessary. This allows you to focus on the key components of your quality processes, without worrying about system performance.
In terms of cost, you can scale as needed. This will allow your quality costs to scale with your business operations and performance.
One of the chief issues many businesses have with on-premise management systems vs. cloud based is the potential for data breach as a direct result of employee error.
A report from Shred-It states that 47% of business owners claim that data breaches within their company were a result of human error - an alarming statistic that demonstrates that negligence as a result of phishing, malware, and ransomware is more prevalent than many business owners would like to acknowledge.
A research study by Nominet indicates that 61% of security professionals believe that cloud based quality management software systems minimize security breaches and threats in comparison to on-premise options. Typically, these cloud based quality management systems consist of the following features:
A cloud-based model ensures better protection of your assets, as well as quality control over on-premise quality management options.
Not all cloud solutions are created equal.
For example, some businesses will require eQMS software that incorporates modules for regulatory and training purposes for data managers (i.e. if that business has “unique” quality components and tools that other businesses do not have), and some will be comfortable with a “one size fits all” module.
Like all aspects of your business, good data quality management will depend entirely on your company’s specific needs.
In order to enact best practices, it is crucial to evaluate your business needs, ensure that all of your processes are working and up-to-date, and review and revise any processes that do not fit the infrastructure you need to integrate your eQMS software.
Once all of these steps have been completed, you will be better able to determine what data quality management software solution will work best for your business.
Cloud based quality management software is the best possible tool for businesses that are looking to get the most out of their data management software. With eQMS software options catered to every business structure, your business will be brought to the forefront of digital innovation in its data management, security, and engagement.
