The software provides best-practice forms that incorporate priority level (by identifying the change as routine, temporary or emergency), and automated reports for providing the real-time status for all change control tasks.

MasterControl Change Control™ is an integrated solution that connects all of a company's departments with data and processes under a secure and centralized system. This connectivity provides the ability to integrate MasterControl Change Control with core applications including MasterControl Documents™ (for automating the update of SOPs, policies, and other critical documentation). MasterControl Change Control can also be integrated other MasterControl modules, such as MasterControl Training™ and MasterControl Exams™ (which automate the process of training, testing, and documenting the competence of all employees affected by an approved change).

And, because MasterControl is Web-based, even suppliers and employees outside the company who need to participate in the change control process can do so from virtually anywhere.
