Supplier Quality Management Software for Regulated Companies
Supplier contracting and outsourcing are an integral part of process manufacturing. It also can present significant challenges with disruptions to the supply chain, or for companies with a large product line. Furthermore, inefficiency in supplier quality management practices increases unpredictability and risk.
While every company has unique needs, a robust supplier quality management (SQM) software enables powerful supplier process control and comprehensive visibility into the state of your supply chain.
Modernizing supply chain quality management has significant benefits, and automation of the process is becoming an expectation in regulated industries. For example, FDA 21 CFR 820 for medical device firms and ISO 9001 international standards require supplier qualification and regular evaluation as part of quality management. In addition, The FDA Safety and Innovation Act (FDASIA) gives the FDA additional leverage to ensure the safety of the global supply chain for devices, pharmaceuticals, and biological products.
Regardless of your industry, automating SQM creates a more efficient system to manage supplier quality.
