Transitioning to a paperless compliance system. Are you ready?

So what have you been doing in managing compliance this far — manually typing checklists and reports in excel, spending hours scheduling and conducting audits and getting confused about roles and responsibilities?

If so, you are not alone and know that paper-based auditing is time-consuming, frustrating, complex, and as such, extremely cost-ineffective. So as a quality manager or an auditor what are your options and are you ready to transition to the real world?

Many organisations have created an unfair-advantage by automating and simplifying their internal compliance. These companies managed to implement and create a flexible, efficient and cost-effective solution that allows them to deal with compliance in real time, using their mobile phones and tablets, all at the same time whilst encouraging good workflow of audit-related activities, constant communication through staff accountability and role management.

But there are a few things you should know before you implement a compliance management tool to ensure that you are seamlessly transitioning to a paperless system.
