Using the latest touchscreen tablet technology, iQEST is a simple to use Quality Control System, with a series of flexible in-house configurable profiles. Users answer a series of questions relating to the product being assessed, with more in-depth questioning and opportunities to take images offered as more serious quality issues are discovered. iQEST implements a computerised company wide Quality Control standard, offering assessments for any product type or process.
Quality information can be gathered at any time on a multitude of products and processes, such as product arrival, movement of goods, despatch, also handling machinery and equipment service assessments, environmental tests, regular in-house inspections and collection of uniformed data for external audit reporting (including BRC).
Data collected is made instantly available in real-time for key departments, facilitating Procurement, Production and Claims. Assessment history is retained, so in the event of in-house requests, on the spot audits or product recall situations, assessments can be linked together to produce fast and comprehensive quality trends and detailed forward and backwards product traceability.
