What is Complaint Management Software?
Complaint management software
addresses customer issues with an organization's product. Quality managers and their teams use complaint management software to report customer complaints, respond to those complaints directly, investigate the complaints within the organization, and analyze how these quality issues can be avoided in the future. By automating these processes and integrating them into their EQMS, organizations can provide better service to their customers and improve quality processes to mitigate any further customer complaints.
Why Would an Organization Want to Invest in a Complaint Management Solution?
Today, complaint management solutions serve many purposes. While acting as a vital indicator of product quality and potential product issues, how you manage complaints has other effects. Having a validated system that moves potential incidents rapidly through an investigation and corrective action cycle can be a competitive edge as well as a means of improving product quality.
How Can Sparta Systems’ Complaint Management Solutions Meet My Industry's Needs?
Each industry is different with regards to regulatory affairs, customer base, manufacturing quality concerns, etc. For example, an electronics manufacturer
will have a far shorter timeframe than a drug manufacturer to perfect manufacturing quality and address customer complaints before the product's shelf-life is done. Still the pharmaceutica
l or medical device manufacturer
may have different regulations it must comply with, and they could have different consequences if a recall or customer lawsuit were to occur. For example, medical device manufacturers have very strict regulations regarding complaints about malfunctioning devices under 21 CFR Part 820, FDA Part 803, and other regulatory affairs.
Although each industry will manage complaint handling just a little differently to match its own needs and requirements, Sparta Systems’ complaint management solutions are highly flexible to integrate with your quality management system
. Additionally, no matter your industry, our solutions automate and centralize your compliant intake process, so you're more efficient at handling and correcting customer issues to improve product quality and your brand reputation.
