The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is the world's leading developer of the international industrial and commercial standards used by industries throughout the world, including the automotive industry. Although adherence to ISO standards is voluntary, many countries require ISO certification and most customers prefer to work with ISO-certified vendors and suppliers. Automotive companies interested in improving quality while reducing cost benefit greatly from implementing an effective automotive document control software system.

MasterControl software automates the routing and delivery of SOPs, policies, and other documentation. Our system can handle all types of documents— regardless of the software used to create them—and provides a secure, centralized document control repository that allows for easy search and retrieval. For multi-facility companies, MasterControl’s automotive document control software is ideal; its Web-based design allows authorized users to access data from virtually anywhere.
In a paper-based or hybrid system, because employees must check out materials manually, keeping track of documents and document activity is a challenge. Making a change in a document requires manual submission of a change request or a discussion of the change in face-to-face meetings. This results in lost time, lost revisions, and lost documents.
To ensure that only the most current version of a document is available, MasterControl provides automatic revision control, which allows changes to be initiated and approved electronically. The system tracks these changes and makes them available through reports ensuring advanced automotive document control.
MasterControl's automotive document control software system is an integrated solution; it connects all quality sub-systems, including change management, customer complaint, CAPA, training, and audit. This allows for timely and thorough change procedures. For example, a customer complaint that warrants a CAPA will be immediately escalated, and any CAPA that results in an SOP change will, upon its approval, automatically invoke training of all affected employees.
MasterControl’s advanced analytics and reporting capabilities, including customizable reports and online charting, allow for refined automotive document control. Reports are streamlined and analogous, offering managers a comprehensive real-time view of the quality processes, which empowers them to be more proactive with improvements.
