Summary

To be competitive globally, organizations should be able to produce high quality products quickly and at the lowest possible cost. The electronic-based quality management system is offered to allow organization to eliminate paper-based quality processes and drastically increase organization efficiency while improving their ability to maintain compliance with statutory/codes/standards/Customer requirements.

Replacing paper-based Quality Management Systems with electronic-based Quality Management System is dramatically improves an organization’s ability to comply with Statutory, ISO 9001 International Standard and Customer (COMPANY) Requirements. Space-less, more clean & paper-less (environmental friendly) are other advantages from implementing EBMS.
