Recent issues impacting consumer safety have required organizations to reexamine the way they approach their product quality practices. Companies are increasing their efforts to inspect and audit the quality of their own operations both internally and throughout the supply chain network of partners and suppliers.
Audit management software can empower companies in the consumer packaged goods industry to improve safety and quality, reduce costs and identify operational and compliance risks by managing the full audit lifecycle and ensuring that findings are resolved in a timely and effective manner.
An audit management software solution, as part of an enterprise quality management solution, supports an organization’s audit programs using an integrated enterprise system that provides a best practices approach with respect to compliance and risk management. Auditors can plan and execute audits more efficiently by leveraging an integrated tracking system and a powerful workflow engine that automates all steps in the audit lifecycle, including scheduling, preparation, auditing, report approval, report issuance, response and corrective action tracking. In addition, audit management software delivers audit reports that can be generated on demand, eliminating time-consuming manual processes.
