QT9 Quality Management Software


 

QT9 Quality Management Software is a comprehensive, user-friendly, web-based QMS available for deployment either on-premise or in the cloud. This software can help many manufacturing and service companies eliminate the need for paper records and instill full transparency across the entire QMS, and it comes out of the box ready to manage multiple locations.

QT9 QMS is a complete system for quality management. The applications are designed to be easy to use, and they are all interconnected. Email reminders can be set for most modules to keep employees on track; this feature also helps keep costs down because fewer concurrent licenses will need to be purchased. Users can track nonconforming products, corrective actions, document control, training, and 15 other quality modules electronically, then approve, reject or verify them, or assign them to the appropriate party. Since QT9 is 21 CFR Part 11 Compliant, electronic approvals are just as good as a signature.

This solution offers a straightforward custom reporting engine that can export data in Excel format, report format, or even charts. It also offers a supplier, customer, and employee training web portal that are license free. Customer feedback, ECR/ECN, FMEA, calibration, and much more; purchasing QT9 means users get full access to 19 powerful modules. 

The team at QT9 is prepared to help make implementing their solution a smooth process. They take pride in the fact that they bear the burden of importing data and training employees to use the software. We think it’s a great fit for manufacturing and service ranging from ISO 9001 to ISO 13485/FDA and AS9100 certified in the United States and Canada. For ISO 13485 or FDA-regulated organizations, they automatically validate web subscriptions to save money and time.

QT9 covers all your need for GFSI audits.
It is easy to use when you understand how it works.
The software was not always fitted to my needs, but with some creativity I was able to use the fields for a different purpose than what they were intended.

Pros

Very nice connection between the documents database, training and maintenance functions.
Great price structure where you pay by number of simultaneous access.
Nice updates with increased functionality about twice a year.

Cons

I would like more open fields and the ability to hide some fields in the printed report.
There are a lot of steps to enter a document with several validations. The process is a little long if you have to do many documents.
You can't restrict the emailing to specific functions (for example: documents to approve only, task attribution only...), so you end up with way too many emails in you mailbox, which defeats the purpose.

Advice to Others

Great product for small size companies and also nice to manage multi-sites of small sizes.

For CARs, the information is all in one convenient location.
The Employee Training location allows us to attach documents (we keep Curriculum Vitae in the Related Files section). This allows for a one-stop-shop when audited on employee training and experience.
Vendor has been incredibly interactive and helpful when we have had questions/concerns. Also provided requested on-site training that met our expectations and timeline.

Likes Least

Unable to perform 'text' searches. For example, performing a search within the Master File attachments for a term or other document number is not available.
In addition, I create training records for new hires; the content and attributes are always the same. It would be helpful if I could copy an existing record.
As part of the Quality organization, I notice grammatical errors. QT9 has several messages that contain mis-spellings.

Recommendations

For companies that do not require BOMs/Routings, this software meets our compliance needs.

Great customer service and unlimited training. QT9 engineers will assist you at all stages and answer questions promptly.

Training system becomes increasingly complicated as a company grows and adds employees. Training gaps are inevitable over time, and obtaining training gap data is difficult. Training compliance is tracked per document and not per revision level. For example, if a current document revision is 2, and an employee trained to revision 1 but has not trained to revision 2, QT9 shows the employee's training as current, no gap.

"Related files" are not secure in certain modules. Regular users have the ability to delete these files.

Quality system data is difficult to obtain. For example, there is no way to obtain information on how long a document change request was open.

Various modules and settings do not "talk." For example, an employee could be inactivated and deleted in the system, but since he still appears as an approver on a document request, he continues to receive email notifications about that document.

Other minor frustrations include the following: originators are unable to reject their own document change requests; the amount of QT9 emails becomes overwhelming; menu lists automatically expand when your cursor passes over the menu item.

Recommendations

If you need to implement a basic quality system, this software could work for you. If you currently have a complex quality system that integrates design control, regulatory adverse event reporting, and detailed metrics with risk analysis, this is probably not the software for you.

This is a very good package for an organization looking to implement their first quality management system or looking to automate a manual, "siloed" one. If you currently have a "paper system" you can use as many or as few of the modules as you are comfortable with and then convert additional process when you're ready.
There's a lot of detail in the control of nonconforming product and the corrective action/preventive action modules, but QT9 let's you decide how much you use by simply specifying this in your operating procedures/instructions.
The Document control and Record control modules will really streamline these 2 key processes.

Likes Least

Not much. Once we figured-out that going to the "Print" screen gives you a clear, complete look at everything from management reviews to corrective actions, we and the auditors have been quite happy.

Recommendations

Talk with some current subscribers with similar organizations. Consider going "all in" with their MRP package along with QT9.

The amount of functionality which is provided, considering the price of the software. The fact that there is a certain amount of latitude in terms of configuration and for the most part, you can build the system to suit your requirements. Also, even though the system is built to utilize electronic signatures, there are also the option to take a hybrid approach if you prefer to have certain documents physically signed. The document control and change control modules are of a good standard, and also the facility of being able to add related documents (which are linked to live documents) is particularly useful. I also find the management review module excellent, and has saved me a lot of time in terms of how I used to manage this feature.

Likes Least

The vendor management system is not as functional as I would like and is the module I find the least useful.

Recommendations

Using the trial installation is vital in order to assess the suitability for your own needs. Also having several different types of users so that you can get a rounded opinion.

For a small company this sw package has all the basic offerings. We are a medical device company and myself, the FDA & ISO auditors liked the traceability, control of documents and everything was there at our fingertips from Management review to Documents to CAR's. Qt9 is always responsive to our questions and resolving issues. They have incorporated some of our suggestions into their sw updates. It is intuitive to new users and easy to use. We have configured their ECR module to handle storage of documents and electronic signoff for Validation Protocols,Reports, Design review meetings, Stop & Resume Ships, and other processes that need sign-off in addition to its ECR capability. For the cost, the flexibility, electronic signature and traceability is worth trying out the system.

One of the items on our wish lists is to be able to limit daily emails to weekly for some people. The common complaint is that people don't look at them (deleting) because a notification appears every day.
Training module is a little inflexible, but they are looking at improving it and also improving the report outputs.

Recommendations

1. Contact other users for their input
2. Use real life cases to try out each module. Actually try inputting documents, CAR's, etc. to see how it fits with your system
and complement your paper systems. Look at the actual workflow
3. The modules can be implemented one at a time, so it doesn't interrupt your existing process.
