OnDemand Webinar: Quality Management in the Real World: Maintaining Supplier Records

This webinar is part two of a three part series. 

Maintaining an accurate and up to date supplier management system can be a challenge for any organization. Manual management of suppliers can be a slow and frustrating process. An automated QMS can help to alleviate some of the pain that comes along with managing numerous suppliers across your organization, along with removing risk from your supply chain and protecting your brand’s reputation.

Join Nick Metrakos, Solutions Consultant at ETQ, an ISO 13485 and ISO 9001 Lead Auditor in this short, 30 minute session to learn how a physical supplier file could be replaced with an automated Quality Management System, such as a Supplier Profile in an ETQ solution. In this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • What are the key records that should be collected and tracked for your suppliers
  • Which records should be updated periodically and why
  • How Supplier profiles in an ETQ solution can replace paper folders
  • How Supplier profiles can be routed through qualification workflows to manage the Supplier Approval process
