Task Tracking in EQMS

Posted by James Hartford on Nov 20, 2012 @ 10:02 AM

In today’s fast paced business environment, it is has become harder and harder for those concerned with quality management and service delivery related activities to keep track of all of their responsibilities as well as their required tasks without something falling through the cracks.   The days of the yellow sticky note no longer suffice as a tool for us to organize the myriad of activities we are not only responsible to complete but also monitor and oversee.  Our never ending attempts to remain focused appear to be futile in that we are growing ever busier and become easily derailed by sidebar activities and impromptu scheduled events.  One advantage of having IBS software to manage quality processes is its ability to organize and streamline activities to address just these problems.

Especially in larger enterprises, the tendency exists to implement multiple business software applications that address specific business requirements. Many of these specific requirements actually have a lot in common and fundamentally share the same foundation attributes. Those of us who spend the majority of time focused on Quality Management initiatives across global companies, consistently uncover many “Silo’ed” approaches to Document Management or more precisely Document Control.   Many different applications, software frameworks and variety of homegrown variations of workflow management solutions designed to manage documents and forms are found across many different functions.
