Audit Management Software
Audits are an essential element of any compliance system. The IsoTracker Audit Management module simplifies the process of constructing, scheduling and running an audit. The built in Corrective Action (CAPA) features permit the easy resolution of audit issues.
Using the module, you can:
- easily configure new audits or reuse existing audit templates
- schedule recurring audits
- download audit checklists as Excel spreadsheets so you can conduct audits offline
- attach supporting documents to audits
- review previous audit results
- easily identify non-conformances and areas for improvement
- track corrective actions taken in response to audit findings
- create audit reports for sharing with stakeholders.
The Audit Management module can be used as a standalone product, or it can be integrated with one or more other isoTracker quality management modules.
Why choose our automated audit management software?
- Regular audits are an essential part of any compliance system, such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 22000 or OHSAS 18001. They can help your organization identify areas for improvement and, by acting on these, improve overall quality and efficiency.
