About QCBD

Quality Collaboration by Design (QCBD) is a quality management solution that enables small and midsize businesses to ensure quality across manufacturing processes. The solution comes with a supplier management module, which allows enterprises to manage requirements of international quality specifications, ensuring the evaluation of suppliers in compliance with regulatory norms.

QCBD provides an equipment management module, which lets businesses monitor the inventory of spare parts, track labor, create instructions, attach media files and more.

I am now at my 3rd company using QCBD. Each has benefited greatly for audits and day to day use.

My first experience with QCBD, the company already had it installed. The other two realized the opportunity and instituted the application without reservations. Management, auditors and operators enjoy how simple it is to use and how easy it is to find the QMS information and data.

Pros

What impresses me most; is having external customers and their executives, with expensive and complex eDMS tools, appreciate the amount of information available within a few screens and search clicks.

Cons

The amount of data that can be searched by or with an auditor increases the likelihood of finding; which means we must be diligent in perusing everything.

Amazing QMS software. Unbelievable price. Unparalleled technical support. A real find!!

We have used QCBD since 2012 when we started to seriously work toward certification to ISO 13485. QCBD facilitated our certification readiness because the QMS forms/records function (customer complaints, change orders, process deviations, corrective actions, etc) ensures that the completeness of documentation is consistent; data fields can be set to "required". Document revision control is further ensured because QCBD automatically prints a release status and print date timestamp along the top edge of each page, by default. User access is managed with a flexible system of use privileges/right as set by a QCBD Administrator. The electronic signature feature is compliant with 21 CFR Part 11. Lots of features. I 100% recommend QCBD to anyone who asks.

Pros

All the QMS document control and record requirements are addressed with a single application, QCBD. Everything is in one place. Records can be linked together which makes the whole story easy to remember and explain to an auditor. Certification auditors and auditors who come on behalf of our customers are always impressed with our documentation and record control. Our certification auditor told us she has suggested QCBD to clients who are still struggling with manual document control and QMS records systems because they think they cannot afford a software-based system. Technical support is responsive, helpful, and gracious. Suggestions for improvement are considered. The technical support is the best I have ever worked with. Ever!

Cons

Customization options are less flexible than I would like; some modules are more flexible than others. I would like to see better supporting documentation. The hotfix software upgrade notes are not always clearly written. The user manuals are not as complete as I would like, however, the on-line videos are helpful and easily accessible.

Best bang for your buck

I have been using this software for 10+ years with 2 different companies.

Pros

Easy to use and customize, records in each module can be linked, cannot beat the value for the money, customer support is top notch

Cons

I wish that fields could be moved around when customizing, more of an aesthetic issue than anything. Functionally not an issue.
