ComplianceQuest’s Design Controls Solution

gives you complete visibility over your product design process, making it easy for your teams to collaborate and design high quality products, all the while guaranteeing compliant and comprehensive documentation.

    • Collaboration between different members for critical tasks such as revisions or validations can be a challenge, especially if done through spreadsheets.

      With CQ’s Product Design Management solution, design leaders can invite their teams to work on easily accessible design files, as well as assign and track actions for each team member based on deliverables. Modern collaboration tools such as Chatter and Design Review management are built-in to help teams collaborate in real-time while maintaining effortless documentation of project progress.

    • All departments involved must be able to easily access shared records, not only engineering teams, but quality and regulatory teams as well.

      CQ offers your teams a unified repository for all design documentation including requirements, deliverables and changes, easily accessible to all members. You can even bring in product data from other sources (ERP, Jira..) and keep your quality and engineering teams in sync, with a complete document stack.

    • Design leaders need a strong project management solution that is tailored for design projects and allows them to track actions, deliverables and timelines and that is easily accessible by all relevant team members.

      With CQ’s Design Controls solution you can easily assign actions to team members and follow up on them to make sure they are completed on time. Deliverables are instantly added to new projects thanks to a configurable Deliverables Library. It’s also easy to keep track of all deliverables during all stages of the design lifecycle with advanced list views and Gantt charts that ensure each component receives the attention it needs.

    • Your Design History File (DHF) and Device Master Records (DMR) need to always be ready, up to date, easy to locate and share.

      With CQ’s Design Controls, automatically your DHF and DMR are built for you and kept up to date with the latest approved documents and design files. Your teams can access these critical folders at any time, search through them and share relevant documents with the click of a button.

    • All changes and updates must be tracked, documented and approved according to regulatory standards but extensive documentation can inhibit efficiency, leading to delays, mistakes and non-compliances. For teams using paper systems, or spreadsheets maintaining proper documentation can quickly become a nightmare.

      CQ’s Product Design Management solution makes documentation effortless for quality and engineering teams. All steps, requirements, outputs, reviews, and changes are well documented and easily shareable/printable at the click of a button. Even approvals, signatures, revisions and meeting notes are automatically documented, with built-in revision control for design files. This ensures compliance with regulatory and quality standards such as 21 CFR 820.30 and ISO 13485.

    • Design review meetings are crucial in ensuring design process deliverables are being sufficiently performed, design plans are updated and that all steps are being taken to deliver a high-quality product.

      CQ’s design controls solution allows you to schedule and manage design review meetings in one place. You can assess project progress, assign, and easily track assigned actions during the meeting and meeting minutes are automatically documented for full traceability.

What they Say About Us

  • Our experience with implementing ComplianceQuest @ Flipkart has been nothing short of a wonder.As the company project lead, I have had the privilege and hands on experience in Designing the System Architecture, Configure and Deploy it across the organization and the entire experience has been nothing short of GREAT… While wearing the hat of System Admin, the most significant feature that I have experienced is the platform’s capability to design, configure/customize and deploy any workflow/module from the front end itself i.e. NO CODING REQUIRED at all. The tool is so simple to use that we hardly reached out to CQ Support for any subsequent customizations and all Enhancements/Add-On’s were implemented In-House and enabled us to de-skill the System Admin role and assign it to people with good command on spreadsheet applications like MS Excel. A true asset for the organization! 3 Cheers for team ComplianceQuest.

  • We went live with CQ just a few weeks ago and it works great! We received excellent training and after some playing around and getting used to it we found that it is really easy to use. So far we have implemented Document and Training Management as well as CAPA and both have everything we need right out of the box. After years of cumbersome spreadsheets and databases CQ is a blessing. It makes document management quick and easy… and it’s a pleasure to use.

  • We are still getting started and have only just implemented Document Management. We are very excited about the potential for managing our QMS and can’t wait to move onto the other Compliance Quest modules with the help of Amit.
