We saw a supplier use QDMS, we thought it would benefit us to use it and started to use QDMS as of 2010 in our company.
QDMS helped us establish a system within the company thanks to its many modules. With QDMS we started to keep many documents that were kept as hardcopies as softcopies regularly. Furthermore, we can have documents approved via approval matrix without need for signatures healthfully. We can regularly monitor CPAs, actions and customer complaints. We can do and monitor audits. Additionally, “environmental dimensions and impacts” module has been created in QDMS for ISO 14001 environmental management system. We can effectively perform and update when necessary environmental risk assessments in this module.
