Qualsys is delighted to welcome Carillion Direct Sourcing, a division of Carillion plc, as a new customer to EQMS.
Carillion has awarded Qualsys a contract to implement its groundbreaking Audit & Inspection Manager and iEQMS Software. The solution will streamline their procurement process by providing greater visibility of the supply chain and significantly cutting the amount of time it takes to conduct supplier audits and inspections.
Carillion carefully selected Qualsys because of the wide-ranging benefits of its EQMS Audit & Inspection Manager and iEQMS Auditor software, which include:
- eliminating duplication of effort associated with transferring information from paper to electronic record
- improving the quality and immediacy of management information
- enabling auditors to complete audits on the move from any location, whether online or offline
- improving the quality and accuracy of work by instantly collecting photos, videos and audio evidence
- cutting administration costs associated with paper-based systems
Already one of the UK's leading integrated support services and construction companies, Carillion now has extensive and expanding sourcing operations around the globe.
Previously, Carillion’s supplier audits or inline inspections comprised a manual, paper based process. Audits were recorded on paper forms, transcribed onto a report, and emailed to Head Office for collation and analysis.
Paired with EQMS Audit & Inspection Manager, iEQMS Auditor will now replace the traditional paper based system for every audit carried out as part of Carillion’s procurement process. This will enable auditors to instantly enter information onto the system, thus eliminating duplication of effort and saving vast amounts of time and administration costs.
Carillion also anticipate an improvement in the quality and immediacy of management information. The system saves a significant amount of time as each audit can be driven from a template of questions and tweaked as and when needed, meaning audits do not need to be created from scratch every time.
Reporting is instant and real-time, meaning immediate access to Key Performance Indicators. Deviations and NCRs are captured instantly and addressed through a closed-loop process.
As Carilllion conduct audits globally, it required a system which allows its auditors to conduct audits from multiple locations.
EQMS will enable seamless completion of audits, capturing of evidence, and reporting. Offline synch mode means auditors can complete audits on the move from any location in the world, even when a connection to their network or the Internet isn’t available.
Previously, Carillion’s auditors would travel across China encumbered with laptops, digital cameras and multiple product specifications.
Carillion will now be able to instantly collect photo, video and audio evidence using just one device, improving the speed, quality, and accuracy of their audits. Associated audit information such as product specifications and relevant standards are on-hand when required as a separate download.
“We’re delighted to welcome Carillion Direct Sourcing on board,” says Gemma Baldan, Qualsys’ Business Development Manager.
“We already have a number of customers in Asia and now Carillion is our first based directly out of China. We look forward to closely working together to support the role out and further improving their quality system and business efficiencies.”
