Chemical companies can generate an immense amount of quality and regulatory-related paperwork, adhering to industry standards and governing bodies such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Commission. In this highly regulated industry, it’s important to create, track and manage critical documentation associated with manufacturing processes and quality events. Leveraging a document management solution as part of an overall quality management solution allows companies to improve quality, support compliance and drive continuous improvements.
A document management solution allows for full document lifecycle management, while providing an audit trail and electronic signature functionality to support compliance. In addition, a document management solution manages industry-related documents, providing version control while integrating with quality workflows and approval processes. It can also be seamlessly integrated with a training management solution, to enable features like the automatic creation of training requirements for employees.
