Document Management Overview
Managing ever-increasing documents securely and efficiently has remained the top concern for businesses.

Create and Collaborate on Critical Documents
The document creation process involves utilizing standard templates to keep the process consistent and efficient. Additionally, different people are necessary to collaborate during the document creation process. Qualityze Document Management system makes this process easy for you. A standard template can be used to generate a document. In the Initiation step, you can capture the details like:
- Effective Date
- Expiration Date
- Security information & others
You can also use a ‘check-in’ functionality to store a completed document. Collaboration step is an optional step in which a document owner can invite several people to participate in the creation process of the document.
Efficiently Review and Approve Documents
According to the regulatory standards, once a document is drafted, a designated individual(s) should review it for the adequacy of the information and approval prior issuing the same.
With Qualityze, you can use the collaboration step to perform the review process. Alternately, approval process can also be used for a review process even though it is an optional step in the system. Our solution instantly sends alerts and notifications through email regarding the review and approval activities aligned for them.
Qualityze accelerates the document review and approval process, reducing the overall document cycle time.
Associate Reference Documents
Associating reference documents involves linking related documents to provide easy access and facilitate document control. With Qualityze Document Management, you can associate reference documents in a few simple steps. You can link documents that are related to each other, such as procedures, instructions, and records. This ensures that all the relevant documents are easily accessible from a single location.
In addition, associating reference documents enables version control and ensures that the latest version of the document is always available. It also helps to streamline document review and approval processes, as all related documents can be reviewed and approved together. It further helps to ensure compliance, reduce errors, and increase efficiency in managing your organization’s documents and records.
Streamline Document Release Process
Once the document has been through the initiation, collaboration, review and approval process, it is time to release the document for the end-user.
Qualityze has made the release process simplified. While setting up the document profile, you can also define the grace period that will control the release process. A document can be released as soon as the approval process is complete. If the effective date is in the future, the document will not be released. Additionally, a built-in review process can be scheduled to check the validity of the document on regular intervals. As a part of the effectiveness review, you have the option to keep the document active or revise or expire.
