Complaint Management

Create Loyalty by Addressing Customer Complaints Smartly


What is ComplianceQuest's Complaint Management Software?

In any business, customer satisfaction is paramount. That is why it is essential for such businesses to have an effective complaint management system, enabling them to listen to customers. CQ’s Complaints Management Solution provides a platform to manage your end to end complaints management process. For highly regulated industries such as Life Sciences, where compliance with industry regulations and avoidance of potential product liability lawsuits is necessary for business viability, it then ensures that any required regulatory submissions with the information collected through complaints process is done in a timely fashion.

Complaint Management System Features


The CQ Complaint Management System enables customer service representatives to record a product or service complaint coming in from multiple sources such as phone, fax, mail, email, or the web. All critical and pertinent details about the product as well as the incident are captured using a user-friendly input form. Depending on the complaint data captured, the complaint record is automatically routed for further triaging based on the company’s policies. The solution also provides the capability for the customer-facing personnel to record a complaint, along with any evidence, using a mobile-friendly App (iOS, Android, Windows).


The CQ Complaint Management system automatically queues all complaints that need further triaging to be reviewed by the relevant complaints coordinator/manager. The complaint coordinator will get to analyze the risk using pre-defined risk standards of the reported complaint. Following the triage, a complaint can then be routed for further investigation, and evaluated for the need to report to regulatory authority. Notifications are also automatically sent to the relevant departments and personnel, and escalation mechanisms are triggered based on the severity and priority of the complaint.

Product History

Failure in a finished product may be attributed to one or more of its components. The CQ Complaint Management system provides the capability to list the anatomy of the finished product and cross check for any non-conformance, CAPAs, inspections, etc., created against it and its outcome. This historical data helps complaint handlers better understand the performance and stability of the components and provide valuable inputs while investigating the root cause of the problem.

Investigation And
Root Cause Analysis

ComplianceQuest provides a strong platform for collaboration that stretches beyond personnel within a single department, as is usually the case. In fact, it allows complaint handlers from single or multiple sites, and subject matter experts from the supply chain, to perform root cause analysis together. Complaint Management Solution by CQ allows documentation of multiple root causes, including supporting tools, documentation and evidence that is used to conclude on the root cause analysis. Investigators can utilize the cloning capability to perform additional investigations and reuse the analysis. The system also provides capability to identify if the failed component was from a supplier, and trigger the initiation of a SCAR.


Collaborating through this solution is a pleasure. It offers collaboration capabilities such as online portal, a central repository for information including documents, Chatter for in-house social networking, and a transaction-based communication approach on certain aspects of investigations and samples. The CQ Complaint Management system also provides capability to generate responses which can be emailed to the appropriate personnel within or outside the organization using pre-defined templates and using the reminder capability to remind complaint coordinators/investigators to reach out when specific milestones are reached.

Regulatory Reporting
And Submissions

The Complaint Management system comes with embedded best practices for Life Sciences combined with decision tree functionality to support the identification of reportable adverse events, as well as the type of report (e.g. 5-day, 30-day). The process of regulatory reporting for regions such as US FDA, Health Canada, EMEA, Japan and Australia are greatly simplified as the system helps manage the regulatory assessments required, and the corresponding timelines for the submissions to be made, to ensure compliance.

CAPA Evaluation

The CQ Complaint Management system provides for every complaint to be systematically evaluated against the CAPA requirements of your organization, and for a CAPA to be generated if required. The CAPA results, including the investigations, corrective and preventive actions, effectiveness plans and verifications are all accessible from this solution.
