Why Automate your Quality Management Processes?

Complying with global quality standards is no easy task; it requires a significant amount of time and human resources. If you rely on a paper-based or a partially electronic eQMS, the challenge of staying compliant, while keeping up with the ever-increasing workload, is even more daunting. Fortunately, MasterControl arms you with the right tools to achieve your compliance goals quickly and efficiently. When you automate your manual quality processes using MasterControl, you save time, money, and labor—it’s as simple as that.

Faster Time to Market and Other Reasons to Automate

Getting a new product from initial design to final production is a lot like navigating a maze. One wrong turn can stall, or completely derail, your entire product development effort, allowing your competitors to sprint past you in the race to market. Regrettably, no matter how well-thought-out your design is, or how sophisticated your paper-based or manual quality processes seem to be, manual systems are time-consuming, inefficient, and error-prone, and these issues are compounded when your teams or suppliers are geographically dispersed.

Automating your quality processes into one holistic eQMS will not only enhance visibility and collaboration, but also allow you to stop chasing paper, and devote more time to running your business. Other reasons to automate include:

  • Streamline processes: Unlike other industries, highly regulated industries face particularly unique and difficult challenges that tend to slow down development and manufacturing processes. MasterControl software and services are specifically designed to automate and streamline these processes, allowing you to communicate with other sites and suppliers as if they were in the office next door. The end result is that you will spend less time and less money getting your products to market than you would with a manual quality management system.
  • Improve profitability: When you save time, you save money. Just one mistake within an otherwise well- thought-out and well-implemented development plan can cause delays worth millions of dollars. Whether you save money by avoiding costly product recalls or cutting your corrective action cycle time in half, you’ve already seen a return on your eQMS investment.
  • Accelerate compliance: Saving time and money is great, but for regulated companies, it all comes down to compliance—and the risk of non-compliance has never been higher. An automated eQMS like MasterControl is specifically designed to drastically reduce this risk by controlling the quality and integrity of your quality management processes, which helps ensure compliance with the FDA and other global regulatory agencies.
