Deadline Management: The Ecert Basic tool to easily keep track of all deviations

One of the challenges for certification companies is to follow up non-conformities and corrective actions of their clients as well as to keep track of their deadlines. Having this under control can be a fatiguing task, but if this task is not carried out with care, problems with the accreditation may occur. Excel tables and to do lists can be an option, but not the best one or more efficient.

With the module Deadline Management, the software Ecert Basic offers the a solution that helps you not to get lost and confused in this field.

By using Ecert Basic to conduct inspections, all deviations created during inspections will be automatically saved in the clients’ profile. With Ecert Basic, issuing deviations is easy and structured. Inspectors and certifiers can define the type of deviation, for which standard it applies, propose corrective measures, define a compliance date and a progress status.

At the same time, the Deadline Management allows certifiers keep an overview of all issued deviations for all the clients in one place, and to track them in a simple way. It is easy to find a client, to filter according to a standard or to get a clear overview of all applied deadlines. For instance, when a deadline is overdue, the system will show a red point for the specific deviation so it cannot be overlooked.

Moreover, the system allows you to export an overview of all deviations to Excel and, if required, print it out. You can also send reminders to customers about a deviation that was found, including its deadline for compliance. The module also available on the Inspectors and Certifiers Web Portal.
