How to Make Quality Control Documentation a Breeze
Quality Control Documentation is an indispensable part of the QC process. Documentation provides a clear background into what has been accomplished and what has not been undertaken, as well as the factors that have contributed to that predicament. Documenting the processes is a first step towards achieving transparency within the QC department, and makes for a wonderful means of reporting back to higher management.
However, it is not as easy as it theoretically is discussed to be. There are, realistically, a number of difficulties that can be encountered when assembling the data for sufficient documentation.
Problems in Assembling Documentation
These three are the problems commonly encountered when one is trying to create sufficient documentation:
Lack of data, or incomplete information available;
Reports are not accurate or are outdated; and
The lack of a system for timely receipt of reports.
However, with the Quality Control App, these problems can now be easily addressed. Once the app’s capabilities are fully integrated with the QC department, these problems would even cease to exist.
How the App’s Capabilities Can Help
This Quality Control Solution has most, if not all, of the features that will make documentation a breeze for you and your management staff. These features include:
• Complete and timely reports
The Quality Control Mobile Forms that will be used to submit reports when the app is implemented is guaranteed to be complete and timely. A typical system would require the QC team member to submit the report right away after the feedback is completed, and the forms have the means to make sure that the smart forms don’t have missing data before being submitted. Finally, the digital forms are ensured to be timely – as long as there is Internet connection, the paperless report is automatically received and accessible via the Management Portal.
• Data is compatible with third party software
The app’s data is not exclusive to itself, but is actually very flexible. Whatever third party software that you are using now to process your team’s data, it will still be able to read and import the reports and the information that they contain so that you can make use of the data from the Quality Control Software. You don’t have to spend a lot of money just to get the system up and running because you already have what you need in addition to the app.
• Monitoring at a glance
The Management Portal, as mentioned earlier, receives all the information that is submitted by members of your mobile workforce. It provides you with a snapshot or a summary of the ‘big picture’ in the field or production line, but also gives you the means to do ‘drill down’ or expand the information that has been submitted using the app’s mobile forms.
It is clear now that the Quality Control App can truly help you out in streamlining your Quality Control Documentation concerns. Let us know if you want to know more about how it does the job, and what other great things you can expect from the app. Take our tour now!
