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.

One word comes to mind when describing this software, phenomenal!

If you are searching for software to make audits successful, store information in one location, make info easily searchable, email automated reports, and earn positive comments from the auditors you encounter, then this software is a must-have. All of the above back with top-notch customer support is why our company recommends QCBD!

Pros

We are an ISO/AS certified company and started by incorporating all QMS documents; our goal was to track revisions and changes to the documents and eliminate the gaps with network folders and passwords previously used to control Word docs. This was a vast improvement for our company; the most challenging part of implementing was convincing the staff this was a necessary step in continuous improvement. We then worked on implementing CAR’s and PAR’s. The CAR process follows the 8D methodology and is another game-changer in promoting consistency within the company. The process and requirements are clearly defined, and each of the field names can be easily modified to fit the terminology used in your company. Tasks can be added, approvers assigned, and so much more. The next step was phasing out the Excel sheet we used as a training matrix and implementing the training module. This module is a must-have! QMS documents can be tied to a training record with one-time training requirements, training by date, or training on change. The training matrix is set up by department, position, or job function; this eliminates remembering who and what has to be trained for each position. When a new employee starts, it is as simple as classifying a few predetermined parameters, and the software issues the training matrix consistently every time. Other modules we are using include Process Deviation, Supplier Management, with is Customer Complaints to be the next implementation.

Cons

There is no software out there that will do everything you want; however, with QCBD, if you can imagine it, there is probably a way to get a similar result. In other words, the ability to make customizations to the modules, layouts, access levels, etc., are powerful tools.

QCBD to support QMS for medical software devices

We have had a very good experience with QCBD. The learning curve is steep if one has never used a system like this or they are new to QMS, but that may not be unique to QCBD. Customer support is excellent.

Pros

It is easy to use and has all the features we need.

Cons

The update cycles. We would like an automatic notification instead of manually checking.

Reasons for Choosing QCBD

at the time we were looking for software to support our QMS, we found QCBD to have all the features and qualifications we needed at a reasonable price.

QCBD has been an instrumental tool in my ability to succeed in the role of a Quality Manager at our company.

Pros

QCBD software integrated all of the modules that our business needed under one package making it easy to find data and link everything. The ability to run reports and trends is extremely helpful. Using QCBD has helped us lower our overall COQ by improving our processes, keeping our suppliers accountable, conform to regulatory requirements as well as keep track and address customer complaints promptly.

Cons

It would be useful if individual modules could be configurable with respect to where each field is and also if preview of such configurations is available. Different business have different needs and layout requirements.

Reasons for Choosing QCBD

QCBD appeared at the time to offer the best value for the money and had all the features we needed integrated in one package.
