Let's round up on the top five reasons on how MasterControl's online document control software systems can help you and your business to grow in an efficient and cost-effective way.
The basic requirement of any document control software is its availability. Users of any multi-location organization are strongly aware how difficult it gets to access applications that are deployed remotely. Delay in access, restraint in availability of any functionality, and server access issues can be several reasons of annoyance for the employees. MasterControl's online document control software is all about providing easy access to users all over the world. You can be residing anywhere however; you will never feel distant from all the documentation as you are able to access it online through the web-based interface. It is simple to search and retrieve any documents you have access to.
The best part about MasterControl's online document control system is that it has automatic document revision control and archiving enabled. This means that only the current version of any document is available for the users to view. Only authorized users can make changes, and they need to enter the reason for the change before the document is sent on for manager approval. The system consists of a special tool called an "InfoCard" that helps in tracking changes in the document. Another feature that helps you in having complete control of how your documents are processed is the time-stamped audit trail. This enables you to not only track the user who has made alterations in the document, but also view the changes made.
The vision of MasterControl is to develop a quality management system with an online document control software solution which adheres to FDA and other global regulatory requirements. One of the regulations, 21 CFR Part 11 in the United States and Annex 11 in the European Union, stresses that you must be able to control the users that are granted access to the documentation. This means that you must be able to limit user permissions and ability to access written policies and procedures. You don't want irrelevant users toying with relevant information and making modifications. This regulation is well addressed with the virtual vaults that secure documents through a centralized database. You can grant access based on roles, departments, or even specific users as needed.
If you are an employee that has to write, manage and maintain SOPs in documentation; then you also know of the extensive effort you have to put it in correctly writing the documents. For one thing, you definitely want to be able to document SOPs in different kinds of formats. You need to ensure that all the procedures once written down are required to be verified by others. This calls out for routing of documents from one department to another for approval. The beauty of this software lies in catering to various kinds of formats. MasterControl's online document control software systems is all about saving you time by automating routing, escalation and approval of all documentation. You can be assured that the documents are approved and signed off with electronic signatures to comply with current regulations. This ensures that the correct people are signing off on documents. Each signature includes the date and time stamp appended to each document. In case certain personnel are causing unnecessary delays in approving a document, you can escalate the task to the next manager in line.
