October 07, 2013 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream, the market leader in enterprise-wide Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) solutions will participate at the American Society for Quality (ASQ) Audit Conference in Tucson, Arizona from October 10-11, 2013. The event will bring together distinguished industry experts to discuss cutting-edge quality management processes and effective risk management tools. MetricStream will showcase the advanced capabilities and benefits of its highly acclaimed audit and quality management solutions at this event.

The quality management and audit functions have assumed an important role today in light of the breakdown of global barriers, complex global supply chains, expanding product offerings, rising customer expectations, and stringent regulatory requirements. Traditionally, quality management processes have been internally focused and largely dependent on spreadsheet and point-based solutions. Thus, achieving real-time visibility into enterprise wide quality processes was hence considered a resource intensive process. Today, organizations need to leverage the full capabilities of their audit and quality management functions to effectively manage and minimize a wide variety of risk arising across the value chain.

The MetricStream Quality Management solution helps organizations cultivate a transparent business environment that can proactively identify, track, and resolve quality issues. The solution features embedded best practices for compliance with standards and regulations such as ISO 9000 and FDA cGMPS which helps reduce the cost of regulatory compliance and the likelihood of non-compliance. The MetricStream Audit Management solution helps organizations manage audit-related activities, data and processes through a centralized framework. Best-in-class features such as time tracking, email-based notifications, and offline audit functionalities help align the audit process with risk and compliance management. Sophisticated risk assessment tools such as risk heat maps, risk scorecards, and risk calculators also help strengthen the quality and audit processes.

This two-day conference will focus on the evolution of quality methods, including the ideas, tools and processes that are used in different industries, governments, and countries. Event speakers will help quality professionals enhance their skill set, and through knowledge sharing, best practices, and technology tools, will empower them to stay ahead of today’s biggest challenges.
