Quality Management Module

The Quality Management Module of IQSMS is an industry proven tool that supports Quality and Compliance Management departments in reducing their daily administrative workload significantly.

The system comprises main features which simplify and ease daily compliance work, including the management of audit plans, conducting safety and quality audits both online and offline as well as efficient management of corrective action implementation.

Moreover, the module convinces with additional outstanding features. These include a regulation reader, an integrated legal cross-reference list functionality as well as the automatic creation of compliance lists to prove what requirements were audited.

Each step in the entire audit process is documented with a time stamp and all results are therefore fully traceable and available for statistics.

As audits sometimes take place at locations where no Internet connection is available, ASQS has developed an iPad Auditing App that enables you to perform audits offline.

IQSMS supports both internal and external auditing. Guest user accounts for Auditees can be created directly by our customers. IQSMS informs Auditors and Auditees via e-mail of performed actions and due dates. System-generated e-mails ensure that all persons involved in the audit stay permanently up-to-date on the status of each finding even without being logged into IQSMS. In addition, in IQSMS every finding can be risk-analyzed in order to create risk profiles for all internal departments and external service providers.

Since ASQS keeps track of all legal amendments, our customers benefit from a consolidated, constantly up-to-date regulations database. An extensive number of regulations and standards is already implemented in IQSMS. These include but are not limited to:

  • SOPEP
  • MARPOL
  • Flag State
  • Class
  • OCIMF
  • SIRE
  • CDI
  • NORSOK
  • LOLER
  • CFR
  • OHSAS
  • ISO standards (if provided by the client)
  • Any standard as defined by the client

Your national regulation is not yet in the database? Not a problem – it can be implemented upon request.

If your company has to comply at the same time with different standards and regulations whose legal content overlap, IQSMS will streamline this process. Instead of auditing all corresponding requirements one by one, you can define a cross-reference list with coinciding paragraphs from different regulations/standards and only audit them once. IQSMS automatically tracks the correlations and considers them as such in the compliance list.
