Empower QLM provides a cloud-based collaboration portal allowing you to manage all processes virtually from anywhere. Self-assessment, offsite, and onsite audits can all be done virtually. PPAP can be automated using smart workflow technology. 8D verifications can be achieved with remote approval management.
The technology offers a template-based solution to simplify audits, PPAPs, and 8Ds by using standards from an existing library. Easily select a template then send an audit, PPAP, or 8D request to suppliers via the portal and monitor progress in real-time. Suppliers can submit all audit responses and evidence, PPAP elements, or 8D elements for evaluation, including attached documents, pictures, and videos.
You can also leverage Empower QLM’s global team to act on your behalf in an onsite, in-person capacity. Use an Empower QLM auditor to conduct onsite audits. Use one of Empower QLM’s certified quality engineers to review PPAP requirements or 8D corrective and preventive actions in-person. In addition, live video sessions can be held for any in-person audit, PPAP, or 8D visit using Empower QLM as the supporting platform.
Empower QLM has scheduling, progress status, and submission performance dashboard features to ensure full visibility, traceability, and transparency of all your requirements.
