IQS Enterprise Quality Management Software is a complete quality management system (QMS) covering audit management, inspections, FMEA (failure mode and effects analysis) & control plans, nonconformance & CAPA (corrective and preventative actions), change management & engineering change notices (ECN), equipment maintenance, gauge calibration, employee training, document management, supplier quality, customer complaint tracking, and more. The IQS system is designed to provide and enterprise-wide framework for manage compliance with multiple regulations, compliance mandates, and quality standards, including ISO 9000, ISO 13485, ISO 14000, IATF/TS 16949, AS 9100, and FDA GxP. The system is used across a range of industries, including medical device manufacturing, aerospace & defense, automotive, discrete and process manufacturing, and food safety.
IQS Enterprise Quality Management Software also offers a native mobile app for iOS and Android which allows users to manage audits from a mobile device, with the ability to download internal, supplier, and third-party audits, and complete the audit checklists online or offline. The system is designed to manage many of the manual tasks in the audit process, allows users to assign responsibilities and due dates, and automatically cross-references audit results to corrective action requests.
There are two version of the IQS software, the currently deployed Web 2.0 version, and their new version TruBox. The current version is a bit clunky (requiring Internet Explorer in Compatibility Mode), though the new direction they're heading corrects that.
We use this software for defect tracking the whole way through the process. Equipment/Gage management modules are available that are full featured whether you're one location, or many across the globe. Implementation with existing systems was a breeze.
The only downside I can see aside from the old interface would be that development work seems focused more on helping large enterprises get the most out of it. The complexity may be a bit much for a smaller business.
Have been to the user group meetings and met many of the staff personally. The customer service has always been above and beyond.
Active development and great customer support. Covers all features our quality department required.
Forced Internet Explorer usage for Web 2.0 version. Interface tends to lag a bit when tabbing through fields.

We have been using this software since 2008 and we switched to the web version in 2013. We use this software to maintain our equipment and it is a valuable asset to record keeping and documenting the preventive maintenance on equipment and tooling. It does require some time to add data to the fields but once it is done it is easy to look up and check on the equipment to see when maintenance has been completed and any upcoming PM's that we need to plan for. I also modify reports in IQS to make it easier for managers to use. I add the new users into IQS and help them with any issues they run into. The software has made it easier for us to show our customers how we are maintaining our equipment during audits.
Your story about how the IQS software has made an impact to your job is inspiring, Carl. It is great to hear how Red Dot Corporation is able to wow customers during audits and support employees with the reports they need. Thank you for your review, and be sure to check out iqs.com for a list of the quality management processes we support.
I think this system is great. Our customers really like how this works during audits. The information is at your fingertips. The only suggestion I would make to the program is that all modules and support look ups have the ability to have a full page view. I use 2 screens and many people do now so it would be nice to view all information on a full screen.
Ease, Information at your fingertips along with how quick it is to get info , charts, past history.
I would make all charts or logs with the ability to view on a full screen.

My company has been using IQS for our Quality system for aver 20 years. It has proven to provide us with all the funtionality that we require to be a leader in our industry. The IT Customer Support is by far the best I have ever dealt with.
There is a alot of funcitonality available with the software.
The web is not very customizable. Everything seems to require a new deployment.

IQs is a good product, though in its current state needs to be a bit more user friendly and term friendly. If you want more than Quality personnel to use this software than it needs to be able to be understood by common staff and management. Navigation is somewhat difficult but once you get use to it, its gets better.
not user friendly
