INFORMATION management software vendor, Ideagen, has launched the latest version of its market leading quality, safety and compliance management product, Q-Pulse.
Q-Pulse 6.1 comes with a notable enhancement to the Document Management module that includes PDF conversion and tighter integration with Microsoft Office.
Among the new features are several customer-led enhancements which were well received at the company’s recent annual User Group, held in Birmingham’s Metropole in November.
Ideagen’s Q-Pulse Product Manager, Paul Callaghan, said of the latest version: “We are delighted with the reception of this new release and we are particularly pleased that our customer base is taking such an active part in shaping the product.
“Amongst the new features are several that were voted for by current users via our own Customer Portal and these were greeted with delight when they were unveiled at the User Conference last month. If you regularly work with Documents in Q-Pulse, then you are simply going to love what’s in store with this latest release.”
Some of Q-Pulse 6.1’s document management enhancements include the capability to allow users to convert key documents to PDF, extending the reach of a document to colleagues that don’t have native Office applications installed, such as Microsoft Word. The security of confidential or sensitive documents has also been increased through the ability to restrict features such as printing, file save, send and copy text to PDF while there are smaller, but significant, changes including a Notifications Digest to ensure users are always aware of their actions in a single email distribution.
As well as improvements to the way documentation can be accessed and managed, Q-Pulse 6.1 also comes with enhancements to its Asset Management and People and Training modules, including users being able to sign off training events using the software’s electronic signature capability.
