How to manage the audit security with iGrafx

Language: English

Business processes must be transparent and always up-to-date according to the legal requirements - sounds comprehensible, but is not an easy task. An audit is on and everything in the company is upside down?

Questions such as:

  • Have quality targets been defined?
  • How is the document management managed in the company?
  • Do the employees know the quality manual?
  • What legal / regulatory requirements / standards apply to your company?
  • How is it ensured that production is carried out according to the currently valid requirements?

are hard to answer. It is time to look for solution that allows companies and their stakeholders to meet these high requirements reliably and to ensure audit security.

Our speaker, Sebastian Mungai, presents how you can use iGrafx effectively as part of your quality management manual and how our solution successfully supports you during an audit.
