"All of our records are now in one location"

QT9 has streamlined our internal auditing process, preparation for regulatory audits, document control and approval, and organizational training. We have been able to reduce our active documents by 30% as unnecessary/redundant documents and procedures have been made more visible through the document review process.

"Looking forward to using more modules"

The document control feature has improved our ability to find documents and some records when requested for audit or project purposes. Training is much easier to manage. I like being able to link equipment and gages to system documentation in the Document list. The customer service has always been helpful and responds quickly.

"Excellent support, traceability and ease of use."

We are a medical device company and myself, the FDA & ISO auditors liked the traceability, control of documents and everything was there at our fingertips from Management review to Documents to CAR's. QT9 is always responsive to our questions and resolving issues. For the cost, the flexibility, electronic signature and traceability is worth trying out the system.
