Quality Management in the Real World: Supplier Qualification

This webinar is part one of a three-part series. 

In 2020, more processes are being outsourced to suppliers than before. This makes Quality Management more complex and difficult to manage without the proper infrastructure. Is your company’s ability to scale and deal with supplier quality management hindered by your current processes and solution? Join Nick Metrakos, Solutions Consultant at ETQ, an ISO 13485 and ISO 9001 Lead Auditor in this short, 30 minute session to learn if there is a better way to conduct and follow-up on supplier audits using Reliance.

Join us to learn:

  • How supplier auditing is a lifecycle process
  • The ways supplier audit closure can be handled
  • Challenges to managing supplier corrective action plans
  • How Reliance can facilitate audit lifecycles and smooth out the reporting and follow-up of non-conformances
