Proactive approach to business-critical issues: business activity monitoring with IQAlert
Take a proactive approach to your business activity monitoring with IQMS’ highly customisable, query-based reminder and event notification system, IQAlert.
IQAlert evaluates business and manufacturing critical data in your enterprise and turns it into actions and advisory notices before issues become an issue.
Alerts can be sent as a text message, email, printed report or launching configurable processes, IQAlert can send messages on anything related to your IQMS ecosystem. Alerts can be ‘time’ driven, for example, you need to update the production schedule, schedule reports to print, perform an employee review etc., or ‘event’ driven, for example, inventory is falling below a predefined level, jobs affected by material shortages or changes in an order release, etc.
“We achieved tremendous returns within the first quarter of implementation and to this day, we are still continuing to add further efficiencies and return on investment with the roll out of new features, reports and other modules.”
