Internal and external audits

Internal

  • Create templates, audit checklists and audit reports using Microsoft Word or Excel.
  • Develop audit programs by setting audit schedules linked to the checklist/reports formats. When schedules dates are reached, automatically notify auditors with an Action Item to conduct an audit.
  • Extract audit findings requiring action into Action Items and assign to responsible person.
  • Or raise major non conformances where multiple staff input is required in the Improvement module. Action Items are then raised to responsible staff as each stage of the corrective action process. Example, root cause analysis, planned corrective action, action taken and verification.
  • Use completed Action Items with actions as evidence of action taken.
  • Assign staff to roles as audit/checklist template writers, approvers and auditors etc.
  • Link (Para-Link®) audits to associated documentation such as procedures, plans or folders etc. Links are maintained even when items are renamed or moved.
  • Automatically maintain all relevant history for audit traceability.
  • Plus many more standard features included in Paradigm 3.

External

  • Import the external audit report into Paradigm 3 and lock as evidence.
  • Extract audit findings that require action into Action Items and assign staff to responsible person and completion date.
  • Use completed Action Items with actions as evidence of action taken.
  • Or raise major non conformances where multiple staff input is required in the Improvement module. Action Items are then raised to responsible staff as each stage of the corrective action process is completed. Example, root cause analysis, planned corrective action, action taken and verification.

To manage audit documentation and Action Items as the corrective action tool, you can purchase the Document Module only.

If more control is required for corrective action, also purchase the Improvement Module.
