One key element of maintaining a compliant Quality Management System (QMS) is self-evaluation, also known as an internal audit. The internal audit should address the entire QMS, and include training employees on the audit process and resolving issues that arise during the audit process. The Vintara QMS Audits Center addresses these issues in a unique and efficient manner.
The Audits Center includes everything you need to prepare and conduct an internal audit. Our application encapsulates a sound audit methodology based on ISO9000 and greatly aids in auditor training and consistency by removing sources of auditor errors. To allow you to best focus your audits on your company's needs, audits can be made to be ISO code specific, department specific or specific to up to three other variables determined by your company.
Key features include:
Planning and Integration
With seamless integration into your current system, the Audits Center simplifies the planning process. Follow up activities, such as audit scoring and CAR initiation can be executed efficiently from the same screen. The following features ensure audits are completed without delay:
An internal audit is only effective when the nonconformances identified are handled swiftly. The Audits Center eliminates the risks of lost or illegible handwritten records of a paper-based system and maintains all audit necessities in a highly organized, easy-to-use system.
Enhanced Internal Communication
An employee who has limited access to the audit process may not be a valuable resource for constructive feedback. By maintaining all of your audit records, plans and content in one accessible place, you enable all employees to participate in the audit process as observers. In turn, you'll benefit from substantial employee feedback and companywide buy-in to quality.
