How Do You Share Information With Your Suppliers?
Manufacturers use Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) for financial information, Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) for production control, Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) for specification management. Many organizations have internally developed applications that meet their unique requirements.
Extending these systems of record to your supplier community is very difficult. As a result, supplier quality and ongoing collaboration takes place across multiple systems or homegrown non-integrated databases. Managing processes that rely on these data is done via email, portals and multiple conference calls.
What if you could use a single system to completely manage your supplier community the same way you manage your internal processes?
Why GSQA? Easily Extend Your Systems To Your Suppliers.
GSQA securely extends your systems to your suppliers, and then adds the ability to track supplier material quality on top of the other information you manage. Your supplier community, as well as your research and development, purchasing and quality assurance staff work from a common system. The results include improved quality, reduction in production disruptions and faster new product introduction. With GSQA, you spend less time looking for information and more time acting on it.
GSQA integrates with enterprise applications based on the latest ERP, MES and PLM systems, or legacy systems on the AS-400 or other platforms. GSQA consolidates data silos, promoting efficiency through collaboration.
That is the point of improving supplier collaboration. That is the point of GSQA.
Simplify Material Quality Data Collection
While ERP, MES and PLM systems may have the capability to track supplier quality information, none really work well beyond the firewall. Add-on portals can’t easily manage complex processes. With over 20 years experience, GSQA makes it easy for suppliers to respond to your requests, upload material quality data, and share that data to improve material or ingredient consistency.
Integrated Supplier Quality Management Platform
GSQA connects all of the pieces together in one system. COAs, specifications, SCARs/NCRs, audits and source of supply reside in an integrated platform. You can now easily use these data together to not only eliminate management by spreadsheet, but, also simplify reporting.
Integrate With Any System
Whether it is the latest ERP, MES or PLM release, or an AS-400 custom developed application, GSQA has integrated with them all through standard messages sets.
Be pro-active instead of re-active. Know instantly when suppliers provide an update. GSQA also provides advanced notice as to when their updates to any audit, certification or specification are due.
Our approval and process workflow has been vetted from over 20 years of experience. It is completely configurable to match your current processes.
Full Historical Tracking
Any change to a controlled document requires a signoff. GSQA tracks changes, providing full process accountability.
