How a Modern EQMS Must be Flexible, Customizable and Scalable

How a Modern EQMS Must be Flexible, Customizable and Scalable

At ComplianceQuest, we recently published a paper titled “Five Guiding Principles of a Next-Gen EQMS”. The paper highlighted why the following design principles are a “must have” for any quality management workflow.

  1. Core Quality Promise: Enabling critical business decision making
  2. User Experience: Simple, seamless and consistent
  3. Data at its Core
  4. Standardization and Flexibility: Modular and cloud-based
  5. Continued Improvement: Across quality, business process, systems, design, and people

In this blog, we detail out what we mean by “standardization and flexibility” at ComplianceQuest.

Principle #4 of a Next-generation EQMS: Standardization and Flexibility

A key advantage of being built on the platform is flexibility. Enterprises may choose to implement a few solutions, to begin with, and add on as needed.

For example, a customer may want a platform for only document management or for an integrated process around Inspection-Audit-CAPA-Complaints. In another scenario, there may be a need for only supplier management, but with support in multiple languages. Needless to add, a customer may start with a few teams before making it enterprise-wide.

In short, a truly next-generation EQMS will be holistic on three fronts:

  1. It’ll follow the industry’s best practices, with a proven workflow
  2. But it’ll also have the flexibility to custom design a new workflow to serve a special use case and possibly catalyze new thinking and innovation.
  3. Additionally, the system will ensure user-level customizations and access, ensuring privacy and security.
