Web QMS Software Modules & Applications

Complying with a management system standard involves meeting countless number of requirements that one or two modules cannot deliver.

With Web QMS you have access to all the modules and applications needed to ensure compliance with the ISO or API standard you desire.

Overview

Keeping a close eye on suppliers or vendors who provide products and services to your management system is a requirement of all ISO and API management system standards, and Web QMS handles this well through its Approved Supplier List (ASL) application.

In the ASL application, you can add new Suppliers, Evaluate them, add required documentation such as certifications or evaluation forms, and setup the reevaluation frequency. The ASL application will send reminders when the Supplier is due for reevaluation.

When ready to reevaluate Suppliers, you can do so on the ASL application and attach documentation such as certifications or reevaluation forms as well as issue Corrective or Preventive Actions to the Supplier as a result of their performance.

Key Features
  • Approved Supplier List: Have a comprehensive yet interactive list of Approved Suppliers. Click on any Supplier to view more details regarding their evaluation and reevaluation status, as well as to edit any of their information.
  • Supplier Classification: While API requires suppliers to be classified as Critical and Non-Critical, ISO does not have such requirement. Web QMS allows you to create your own classification whether it is Critical and Non-Critical or other.
  • Improved organization: Maintain all records related to your Suppliers -including Location, Scope, Classification, Date of Evaluation/Results/And documentation, Date of Reevaluation/Results/And documentation, all in one place.
  • Reevaluation E-mail Reminder: Web QMS sends periodic emails that includes a list of Suppliers with upcoming or past due reevaluations. You can configure various parameters including how often to send the reminders, and how far ahead to look up for upcoming reevaluations.

Overview

Calibration is a requirement of most ISO and API management system standards, requiring organizations to establish a program to ensure equipment accuracy is maintained through calibration. Web QMS helps you establish this program through its Calibration application.
In the Calibration application, you can add new equipment, including information regarding model, manufacturer, accuracy, tolerance, ownership, calibration procedure, and calibration interval, among other variables. When equipment is calibrated, you can attach calibration certificates or enter the data if calibration was done in-house. The Calibration application will send out reminders to the Calibration Manager and appropriate Techs prior to the next Calibration due date.

If upon Calibration, equipment is found to be Out-of-Tolerance; the Calibration application will prompt you to conduct investigation in order to assess whether there is a possibility that nonconforming product was mistakenly released or the service performed was nonconforming.

Out-of-Tolerance conditions are handled through Web QMS’s flagship application, the CIP. Once an Out-Of-Tolerance Corrective Action is initiated, it goes through a series of stages to ensure appropriate investigation, verification and validation is completed.

Key Features
  • Calibration Equipment Register: Have a comprehensive yet interactive Calibration Equipment Register. Click on any equipment to view more details regarding the equipment and its calibration status.
  • Standard: If the equipment is used as a Master or Standard, you can select this option when entering equipment. This will be helpful if you calibrate your equipment and print your own certificates, as certificates will pull data regarding the Master or Standard used -directly from Web QMS.
  • Ownership: By default all equipment is owned by your company, however it can be assigned to an employee or customer for reminder purposes. If you select employee, you will be able to select the employee from all users on Web QMS, thus providing the system with the information needed to send reminders when the equipment is coming due for calibration.
  • Calibration procedure: You can attach or link a calibration work instruction or procedure, to an equipment.
  • Outsource or In-House: Whether you calibrate your own equipment, or outsource this task, the Calibration application allows you to upload the calibration certificate or enter the calibration data. Of course if you calibrate in-house, much of the data will be pulled directly from the Calibration application, such as the employee who conducted calibration, the data for the Master or Standard used, etc.
  • Calibration Interval: Setup the interval for calibrating each equipment, to ensure the system flags equipment when it is due for calibration.
  • Targeted reminders: Calibration Managers or Technicians receive email reminders for calibration that is past due or coming due, but only for the location they have been assigned to. Employees receive their own e-mail reminders regarding equipment they have been assigned to, and for calibration is expired or about to expire.
  • Look ahead: Depending on your industry, you can setup reminders to look -so many months ahead- for upcoming calibration or past due calibration.
  • Historical Overview: The history window will provide a glimpse at all the calibration certificates held, who conducted calibration, when they were renewed, etc.

Out of Tolerance Corrective Action – Key Features:

  • Approve/Reject: Approved Out-of-Tolerance corrective actions -or reject them- if the investigation, or actions taken are not satisfactory.
  • Expedited closure: Reduce the time it takes to close Out-of-Tolerance corrective actions by using the reminder and escalation features, available at Coordination and Action stages.
  • Cost/Benefit Analysis: Add cost and benefit dollar amounts at various stages of the Out-of-Tolerance corrective actions for later analysis.

External Audits -whether conducted by ISO Registrars, by API, or by your Customers- are one way to validate the effectiveness of your management system, and of your certification. Web QMS helps organize External Audit information through its module External Audits.

With the External Audit module, you can add new External Audits, attach External Audit agendas, External Audit reports, and keep track of the findings associated with each External Audit.

Key Features
  • External Audit information: Maintain all records related to your External Audits -including date, criteria, Registrar or Entity, Lead Auditor, agenda, reports, and findings -in one place.
  • Registrar Matrix: maintain your Registrar’s matrix, plan or documents, in one area available for your review.
  • Finding Type: Ability to setup the types of findings according to the management system standard you comply with. For example for ISO you may have Major Nonconformity, Minor Nonconformity, and Observations; while for API you may have Major Nonconformity, Minor Nonconformity, and Concerns.
  • Standard: Setup the standards your organization complies with, in order to make them available when entering your findings.
Overview

External Audit findings are handled on Web QMS as follows:

  • Nonconformities: External Audit Nonconformities are handled through the CIP application as corrective actions, thus requiring root cause analysis investigation, verification, and validation.
  • Observations or Concerns: External Audit findings such as Opportunities for Improvement, Observations, or Concerns- are all handled through the CIP application as Preventive Actions, thus shortening the path to closure.
Key Features
  • Approve/Reject: Approved External Audit findings-or reject them- if the investigation, or actions taken are not satisfactory.
  • Expedited closure: Reduce the time it takes to close External Audit Nonconformities by using the reminder and escalation features, available at Coordination and Action stages.
  • Cost/Benefit Analysis: Add costs and benefits dollar amounts at various stages of the External Audit Nonconformities and Observations for later analysis.
  • Historical Overview of findings: Want to know who did what and when? The history window will provide a glimpse at the status of the External Audit Nonconformity as well as when it was created, when it was coordinated, verified, etc. and who completed each step.

Overview

Documented information of external origin -used but not issued by our organization, such as OSHA regulations, ASME standards, ASTM standards, the very ISO or API standards, etc.- shall be controlled, as required by ISO and API management system standards. Web QMS addresses this requirement through its External Documents module. Through the External Documents module, you can identify:

  • External Document Title
  • Version or Revision
  • Location
  • To the source – if available on the internet (such as OSHA regulations), on Web QMS, or on your network.
  • Person responsible for its update.
Overview

Most organizations in all industries use jargon and acronyms as part of their daily operations. Web QMS embraces this notion through its Glossary module.

In the Glossary module, organizations can capture all their company-specific acronyms or jargon used, so that new employees can quickly adjust to the culture and have a reference to these terminology. Words can be sorted alphabetically for easy retrieval or be searched by letter.

Overview

If the Health Safety and Environmental (HSE) Policy is the most important document in a HSE Management System, the HSE Manual is second in command, and although ISO 14001 or ISO 45001 no longer require it per se, it is still a much expected document by most people, including your customers. Mireaux’s stance when Consulting, has been to create an HSE Manual, therefore Web QMS has the HSE Manual module dedicated for it.

Overview

The Health Safety and Environmental (HSE) Policy is undoubtedly one of the most significant requirements of a Health and Safety and/or Environmental Management System standard such as ISO 14001 and ISO 45001, providing the organization’s Top Management stance regarding HSE. While not all organizations subscribe to both standards simultaneously, most do prepare an HSE Policy which combine the requirements for a policy from ISO 14001 and ISO 45001, though they can exist separately also. Web QMS has a specific module for the HSE Policy. With the HSE Policy module your HSE Policy will be prominently displayed front center for all your employees to quickly access.

Overview

Although Information Security Incidents are undesirable – when they occur, they must be recorded and acted upon if you want to meet the requirements of ISO 27001, the Information Security Management System standard.

Web QMS can help you process Information Security Incidents through its flagship application, the CIP.

When an Information Security Incident is entered, it goes through a series of stages to ensure appropriate investigation, verification and validation of it. The entire process is handled online within Web QMS through email notices to designated employees assigned by the CIP Coordinator.

Key Features
  • Incident Type: Assign the incident the proper type from our list, such as Failed, Attempt, or Suspected incident; or setup your own classification.

Overview

In order to detect deterioration, both API Q1 and API Q2 require that the condition of product, service-related product, or constituent parts In stock; be assessed at specified intervals. While most companies may be able to handle this through their ERP or MRP programs, Web QMS offers a simple Inventory Control module to maintain your inventory list ensuring visibility to your team.

The Inventory Control module allows you to maintain your inventory in a grid like format, with pertinent information, such as Part Number, Location, Description, Minimum Reorder Point, Typical Reorder Quantity, Last Inventory Check, Last Inventory Count, Expiration, etc.

Overview

If the ISMS Policy is the most important document in an Information Security Management System, the ISMS Manual is second in command, and although ISO 27001 does not require it per se, it is still a much expected document by most people, probably including your organization’s interested parties. Mireaux’s stance when Consulting, has been to create an ISMS Manual, therefore Web QMS has the ISMS Manual module dedicated for it.

Overview

The Information Security Policy is undoubtedly one of the most significant requirements of a Information Security Management System standard such as ISO 27001, providing the organization’s Top Management’s stance regarding information security. Web QMS has a specific module for the Information Security Policy which is prominently displayed front center in the Information Security area. With the ISMS Policy module your ISMS Policy will be prominently displayed front center for all your employees to quickly access.

Overview

All ISO and API standards require that job responsibilities, as well as the competency of employees -in terms of education, training, skills and experience- be defined for all job positions. As most organizations address these requirements through the creation of job descriptions, Web QMS has a specific module to ensure all your job descriptions are organized and available to your employees.

Overview

A Job Safety Analysis (JSA) promotes the identification of potential hazards within basic steps of a job in order to recommend the safest way to do the job. It is a much used tool not just for organizations certifying to ISO 45001, but for any organization looking to improve their safety focus. Web QMS has a specific module to ensure all your JSAs are organized and available to your employees.

Overview

In the project management world, is typical to use mistakes and successes as learning material for future projects. And while ISO or API management system standards do not call for this requirement specifically, ISO 9001 does call out for organizational knowledge, as a way to mantain knowledge and make it available to the extent necessary.

Web QMS, makes it possible to initiate and track Lessons Learned through its flagship application, the CIP.

Key Features
  • Lesson Type: If your company classifies lessons learned, you can setup this parameter on the Settings according to your needs.

Overview

Adhering to the ISO or API standards requires organizations to comply with relevant legislative statutory, regulatory, and contractual requirements. Web QMS addresses this mandate through its Legal Requirements module, where organization can explicitly identify, list, and keep their requirements up to date.

Overview

Like a foundation for a house, Mireaux strongly believes that one of the most important steps in the development of an ISO or API management sytem is to map the organization’s core and support processes. While this requirement is clearly detailed in the ISO 9001, API Q1 and API Q2 standards, all other ISO standards do mention it as well.  For this reason Web QMS has a module dedicated exclusively to show your organization’s Main Process Map, so that employees are aware of how they fit in the management system.

Overview

We all know that change is part of everyday life. But is how we prepare for the change, and how we control the change -or its unexpected outcomes- that will ensure our success.

All ISO and API standards require that changes to the management system be managed in order to achieve the intended outcome of the management system. In Web QMS, these Management of Change or MOCs are managed through its flagship application, the CIP as follows:

  • For ISO implementations, MOCs can be coordinated as simple Action Items, thus going through Action and Verification stages before closure.
  • For API Q1 and API Q2 implementations however, MOCs require Risk Assessment before proceeding with the change. As such the change will go through Risk Assessment, and Risk Assessment Verification, before continuing with Action and Action Verification up to closure.
Key Features
  • Reasons for Change: All standards specify what changes need to be managed, for example:
    – For ISO 45001 you are required to start an MOC when introducing new products, services, or processes that can impact the Occupational Health and Safety.
    – In API Spec Q2, you need to control changes in the organization structure if the may impact the execution of a service.
    With Web QMS you can populate the reason for the change depending on the standard that you comply with.
  • Risk Assessment Path: For API Q1 and API Q2 implementations, Web QMS will take the MOC through Risk Assessment and Risk Assessment Verification stages before continuing to Action and Action Verification, thus ensuring that you comply with the requirements of those quality management system standards.
  • Approve/Reject: Approve MOCs -or reject them- if the Risk Assessment, or actions taken are not satisfactory.
  • Expedited closure: Reduce the time it takes to close MOCs by using the reminder and escalation features, available at Coordination and Action stages.
  • Cost/Benefit Analysis: Add costs and benefits dollar amounts at various stages of the MOCs for later analysis.
  • Historical Overview of findings: Want to know who did what and when? The history window will provide a glimpse at the status of the MOCs as well as when it was created, when it was coordinated, verified, etc. and who completed each step.

Management Reviews are an important requirement of all ISO and API management system standards, therefore they have a prominent place in Web QMS through the Management Review module.

In the Management Review module, you can add new Management Reviews, attach Management Review presentations, Management Review Meeting Minutes, and keep track of the Action Items associated with each Management Review.

Key Features
  • Management Review Information: Maintain all records related to your Management Reviews in one place, such as date, Meeting Chair, presentation, meeting minutes and Action Items.
  • Management Review Schedule: Maintain your Management Review schedule for multiple years.
Overview

Web QMS handles Management Review Action Items through its flagship application, the CIP. In there, Management Review Actions Items are handled as simple Actions, thus requiring only Action and Verification steps before closure.

Key Features
  • Approve/Reject: Approved Management Review Action Items-or reject them- if the actions taken are not satisfactory.
  • Expedited Closure: Reduce the time it takes to close Management Review Action Items by using the reminder and escalation features, available at Coordination and Action stages.

Overview

All ISO and API management system standards require organization to monitor, measure, analyze and evaluate data regarding the performance and effectiveness of their management systems. As this requirement is in a separate clause to the Objectives requirements, it has to be addressed separately and given it duly importance.
Web QMS addressed the monitoring and measurement requirements through its module Monitoring and Measurement.  With the Monitoring and Measurement module, organizations can outline the following as necessary:

  • What they monitor
  • The methods used for their monitoring, measurement, analysis and evaluation
  • When monitoring and measuring is performed
  • When the results are analyzed
  • Who shall analyze and evaluate the results
Overview

The Non Conformance Report application or NCR is designed to track product or service which do not conform to specifications and therefore has to be dispositioned as either Rework, Return to Vendor, Use As Is, Scrap, etc.
Once an NCR is created, it goes through a few stages such MRB Routing, Action, and Action Verification, before being closed.

While some companies confuse Nonconformances with Corrective Actions, and want to force every NCR to go through Root Cause Analysis; Mireaux’s Web QMS follows the ISO and API standards’ stance: NCRs are different than Corrective Actions – the requirements for each are rightfully placed in two separate clauses- and as such they cannot and must not be confused with one another.

One of the purposes of recording NCRs is to have the ability to analyze the data and identify the critical few defects where you can focus your Corrective Action efforts on, and Web QMS’ NCR Application can help you exactly with that.

Key Features
  • Disposition: NCRs can be dispositioned as Rework, Use As Is, Scrap, or Return to Vendor; or use other available dispositions options such as Downgrade, Remake, and Recall.
  • Approve disposition:  Select a person to approve the disposition or setup a team -Material Review Board (MRB)- to review and sign off on the NCR disposition prior to taking action.
  • Defect List: In order to have trends you must have a well defined set of defects. With Web QMS, you can define your Defect Categories, as well as detailed Defects within each Category, thus giving you the ability to analyze specific defect trends.
  • Internal, Customer, or Supplier NCRs: Log and trend NCRs generated internally, received from Customers, or issued to Suppliers.
  • Approve/Reject: Approved the NCR or reject it if the actions were not satisfactory in bringing the product or service back to conformity.
  • Historical Overview: Want to know who did what and when? The history window will provide a glimpse at the status of the NCR including when it was created, when it was coordinated, and verified, as well as who completed each step.

Overview

Having objectives to ensure the continual improvement of your management system, is a requirement of all ISO and API standards. Web QMS provides the Objectives module to help keep your organization’s objectives in one place and available to all your employees.

Whether your Objectives are SMART, or just great objectives; the Objectives module can be tailored to make it fully compliant with the ISO or API management standard you subscribe to.

Additionally the Objectives module has a cross reference field, to ensure consistency with your management system policy.

Key Features
  • Objectives information: Show all your objectives in a grid like format, with pertinent information, such as the Objective Definition, Goal and Trigger, Frequency, Responsible, and Resources.
  • Recurrence: State your Objectives as they are, or set them up in monthly, quarterly or yearly format, for easy tracking and generation of charts.
  • Graphs: Graphs are automatically populated once data and recurrence is populated.
  • Cross-Reference: You can link each objective to one or more sentences in your management system policy that are relevant to that objective.
Overview

The ISO and API standards require organizations to define the responsibilities and authorities for relevant roles. While responsibilities are typically defined in Job Descriptions (handled through Web QMS’s Job Description module), most organizations define authorities through the establishment of Organizational Charts.

Web QMS has a specific module for Organizational Charts, allowing you to organize your organizational charts and make them visible to your employees. For API Q1, and API Q2 organizations, we also provide an area to identify Top Management versus Management – as many of the requirements of these two specifications revolve around these two groups.

Overview

Preventive Actions are undoubtedly a great tool for continual improvement alongside Corrective Actions. They are, however, difficult to come up with, which is why we think ISO management system standards obsoleted this requirement, though still a requirement for API Q1, and API Q2.

Web QMS handles Preventive Actions through its flagship application, the CIP. When a Preventive Action is initiated, it goes through a series of stages to ensure appropriate investigation, and verification before closure.

Key Features
  • Flexible Short and Long Paths: Paths help you make better use of resources. Both paths comply with old ISO and current API requirements for root cause analysis, and verification of effectiveness.
  • Approve/Reject: Approved the Preventive Action or reject it if the investigation, or actions taken are not satisfactory.
  • Expedited closure: Reduce the time it takes to close a Preventive Action by using the reminder and escalation features, available at Coordination and Action stages.
  • Cost/Benefit Analysis: Add costs and benefits dollar amounts at various stages of the Preventive Action for later analysis.
  • Historical Overview: Want to know who did what and when? The history window will provide a glimpse at the status of the Preventive Action including when it was created, when it was coordinated, verified, etc. as well as who completed each step.

  • Delete and Hard Delete: Remove documents from displaying to users, or delete them altogether when they are no longer needed.
Overview

When required by contract, API Q1 requires organizations to develop a Product Quality Plan that specifies the processes of the QMS and the resources to be applied to a product.  Web QMS’ Product Quality Plan module helps to document Product Quality Plans and any revisions to them to ensure customer requirements are met.

Overview

If the Quality Policy is the most important document in a Quality Management System, the Quality Manual is second in command, and although ISO 9001 no longer requires it per se, it is still a much expected document by most people, including your customers.  Since API Q1 and API Q2 do require a Quality Manual, Mireaux’s stance when Consulting, has been to create a Quality Manual, therefore Web QMS has the Quality Manual module dedicated for it.

Overview

The Quality Policy is undoubtedly one of the most significant requirements of a Quality Management System standard, providing Top Management’s stance regarding quality. No other document has such profound effect on the Quality Management System, than the Quality Policy. Since ISO 9001 and the API standards required that the Quality Policy be available to all employees, Web QMS has a specific module for the Quality Policy, which is prominently displayed front center in the Quality area.

Overview

Within the realm of documentation, having records is a commonplace requirement of all ISO and API standards. Web QMS helps you organize your records through its Records Retention Matrix module.
The Records Retention Matrix module makes it easier to identify which documents to keep as records and which to toss.  For those required to be retained, you can identify:

  • Record Title
  • Record Location
  • Minimum Retention Time
  • Maximum Retention Time (optional)
  • Disposition, and
  • Access.

And if the source of the is available on Web QMS (such as Corrective Actions), or on your network, you can link each Record directly to its source.

Overview

In a world where information is highly available, people expect products to be free of defects and to be delivered faster. Risks like poor product quality, late delivery, losing information, or causing injury are detrimental to a business and its employees. All ISO and API management system standards require organizations to plan for risks in order to manage them proactively.

For this reason, Web QMS has implemented the Risk Assessment application to help your organization identify and control its risks.
With the Risk Assessment (RA) application, any member of the organization can initiate RA events, identify risks within each RA event, analyze each risk based on pre-determined parameters and scale, as well as control or treat each risks through the automatic creation of a CIP.

Key Features
  • Various Risk Assessment (RA) types: In business, our tolerance for risks depends on the type of risk we are dealing with. For this reason, Web QMS’ Risk Assessment application has 5 type of risks to ensure you treat each according to your risk tolerance. The Type of risk are: Environmental, Information Security, On-Time Delivery, Quality, and Safety.
  • Setup your Risk Attributes: The Risk Assessment application comes with 3 attributes to choose from: Severity, Probability and Detection. You can select which to use depending on your processes and Risk Assessment procedures.
  • Setup your Scale and Definitions: For each attribute, you can select a Scale of 1 to 10, and provide the definitions for each. Definitions help RA owners and event facilitators make better decisions when assigning a value to a risk.
  • Setup your Risk Thresholds: Based on the Attributes and Scale chosen, you can configure the thresholds and let the system know what your organization considers a low risk, a medium risk, and a significant risks.
  • Lock RA Events: Owners of RA Events can lock the event to prevent modification, and unlock it when they are ready to add new risks to it.
  • View RA Events History and Risks: View the list of all RA Events conducted by the organization, as well as all risks identified within each event in a spreadsheet like format.
  • Standard 4-T Treatement Options: For risks with a medium or significant risk value, the Risk Assessment application allows you to select a treatment option from the well known 4-Ts – Treat, Tolerate, Transfer, and Terminate. Selecting the Treat option, triggers the creation of a CIP.
  • Follow up on Treatment Controls through the CIP: Significant risks automatically generate a CIP, and kicks off the CIP process for tracking the successful implementation of the controls.
  • Comprehensive Risk Information: Maintain all records related to your Risk Assessments in one place, including, Date, Risk Type, Facilitator, Process, Reports, Significant Risks and their control.

Overview

Incidents are a key factor in occupational health and safety, and ISO 45001 clearly states that “the activities needed for resolving them are the same as for nonconformities, through corrective action.”

Web QMS handles Safety Incidents as Corrective Actions, through its flagship application – the CIP, thus requiring root cause analysis investigation, verification, and validation before closure.

Key Features
  • Incident Type: Ability to setup the types of incidents according to your industry and processes.
  • Project or Job-related Items: If your organization performs field work, items like Country, State, Well Name, Project Manager, Customer, etc. are available to help keep track of relevant information regarding the incident background.
  • Approve/Reject: Approved Safety Incidents-or reject them- if the investigation, or actions taken are not satisfactory.
  • Expedited closure: Reduce the time it takes to close Safety Incidents by using the reminder and escalation features, available at Coordination and Action stages.
  • Cost/Benefit Analysis: Add costs and benefits dollar amounts at various stages of the Safety Incidents for later analysis.
  • Historical Overview of findings: Want to know who did what and when? The history window will provide a glimpse at the status of the Safety Incident as well as when it was created, when it was coordinated, verified, etc. and who completed each step.

Overview

The API Spec Q2 standard requires the development of Service Quality Plans to control the execution of services or use of service-related products (SRP). Unlike API Q1, API Q2 requires Services Quality Plans for all jobs.  Web QMS’ Service Quality Plan module can help your organization keep track of these critical documents and any revisions to them to ensure customer requirements are met.

Overview

Significant risks identified during Risk Assessment events automatically trigger the creation of a CIP and therefore are handled through the CIP application. These CIPs go through Action, and Verification steps, to ensure successful implementation of controls.

Key Features
  • Approve/Reject: Approved the actions developed to control the Significant Risks-or reject them- if you deem they have not been implemented satisfactorily.
  • Expedited closure: Reduce the time it takes to close out the actions on Significant Risks by using the reminder and escalation features, available at Coordination and Action stages.
  • Cost/Benefit Analysis: Add costs and benefits dollar amounts at various stages for later analysis.
  • Historical Overview of Significant Risks: Want to know who did what and when? The history window will provide a glimpse at the status of the Significant Risk as well as when it was created, when it was coordinated, verified, etc. and who completed each step.

For organization with a large number of employees to train, the Training Events application will help them manage multiple sessions of physical or Instructor-led training courses.

In the Training Events application, Admins can create multiple sessions of a training course, with a defined capacity, and invite employees to register online to a session of their choice. As employees signed up to specific classes, the capacity of each session is reduced.

Once employees attend a training session, the Instructor takes attendance and can add test scores to employees who registered and are part of the roster.

Training records are kept electronically and KPIs are available to monitor the effectiveness of your training program.

The Training Events application is complementary to the E-Learning application and Instructor-led courses may be linked to E-Learning tests, making it easier for employees to fulfill their training requirements.

Key Features
  • Create Courses and Sessions: Setup physical courses and sessions for those courses based on a date and maximum number of seats or attendees per session. Course material can also be attached to training courses.
  • Tests: Assign test to the events or training courses.
  • Registration: Send invitations to potential attendees based on their names or Job Titles. Employees can register for a session based on invitation, or Admin can register them. Available seats on each session will diminish as employees sign up to attend.
  • Event Management: Ability to add, edit, or delete Training Categories, Training Locations -such as Conference or Training Rooms, as well as available Instructors.
