Please Help! Looking for Audit Software in the realm of $50K (software and training on it)

Hi Team,

Our company is looking for some audit software in the realm of $50K (software and training on it). The main requirements are that it has a workflow for 1st, 2nd and 3rd party audits. Not only handle Corrective Actions but workflow for audit scheduling as well. It would be programmable in the sense of standards and or checklists. A huge requirement is that is can dump into excel for more customized reports. Ability to edit audit records especially closure dates at any time (this means after an audit has concluded).

Really just seeing what your companies are using and if it can work for us. We just got through 6 months of going back and forth with a company that will remain unnamed. The software is programmed by programmers and not auditors ... that was the first and probably the biggest most frustrating issue.

Thanks,

Jim

Re: Looking for Audit Software in the realm of $50K (software and training on it)

Hi Jimbo,

I think there are quite a few options out there in this price range. Main problem will come if you want local training rather than on-line. I take it Pacific Northwest means Alaska (sorry I'm from UK so don't quite know terminology) so on-line will probably be best.

Meeting all your requirements will be another issue as many developers don't want to customise solution as this costs money. I have to declare my hand and say I work for a company in Dubai that can do this and certainly within your price range. Don't want to get chucked off forum as I am newbie so I've tried to abide by rules.

Currently our reports are crystal but we can dump to excel.

Send me an email if you want more info.

Re: Looking for Audit Software in the realm of $50K (software and training on it)

I have just completed one for no money unless to mention the labour cost of myself and my fellow colleagues were involved. Yes, some IT stuff also involved but nothing serious. It does the job from audit planning, audit management and administration till capa management including workflow management, common network authentication, etc. as well. All integrated into one integrated global kind of system.
This is the holy grail for audits and all surrounding activities, I had plan to publish a how to in general, but it's still a plan for my spare time
Look for free customizable tracking systems like trac and redmine.
Cheers!

Dbell & Sagai, I want to contact both of you about your software, but sending you a private message or email is not an option! It looks like you've disabled the ability. Could you private message/email me so I can contact you? I am very interested in both of your software options, as I'm looking for only auditing software, not an entire Quality database. Thank you!

It looks like maybe I haven't posted enough times to PM you...It looked like it was going to let me send a message, but said afterward I can only message administrators...so I don't know if it sent. I hope you check this thread and we can get in touch!

I'm not personally familiar with any packages that would fit your needs, but a Google search for - software for audits and capa - turned up a bunch of them. Someone else on here may be familiar with some of them.

Re: Looking for Audit Software in the realm of $50K (software and training on it)

Thanks. What I've found so far in my searches is that a lot of the "CAPA" databases are TOO robust. I don't need anything to track vendor or inventory nonconformances. I ONLY need software that applies to auditing. We have something that manages those other areas. They just seem to get too expensive because they're more than we're looking for.

Re: Looking for Audit Software in the realm of $50K (software and training on it)

My company is currently looking in to audit software from a company called The QAB. It was designed to be specifically audit software because most QMS software you find out there either doesn't include audits or includes so much other stuff on top of audits that it's not at all practical, especially for small to medium-sized businesses. We have been impressed with the ease of use of the software. It is very intuitive and requires minimal training. The pricing is VERY reasonable compared to other software I looked at (WAY less than the $50K you're looking to spend!!!). The people have been great to work with and it is by far the best solution I've seen since I started my search at the beginning of this year.

Send me a message if you want more info or you can find Paul Garber on this Elsmar Cove forum site and he can help you out. Good luck!
