GCAA lead the way for auditing - choosing Q-Pulse as the solution
With over 550 organisations - from Aircraft Operators to Air Traffic Control centres - GCAA realised that it was imperative they moved from their dated and laborious paper based auditing system.
Previously, evidence and findings had been collated through a series of impractical phone calls and e-mails – meaning traceability was then hard to demonstrate. The GCAA recognised that they needed a single, clear system to relay their audit findings from their hundreds of regulated clients and organisations, and allow them to analyse those same findings quickly and easily.
By turning to Q-Pulse – developed by Ideagen - GCAA had found the most comprehensive and flexible software tool that met their auditing needs, allowing them to integrate all their audit schedules and findings electronically in one centralised place. In doing so, they became the first such regulator in the world to adopt a centralised electronic system deployed directly into the organisations they regulate, firmly establishing a robust scalable solution capable of managing audit, document and SMS activities.
- Eliminated confusing paper based methods
- Bridged gap between regulator and the regulated
- Analysis of audit findings achievable within an acceptable timescale
- Greater control of audit schedule
- Single system to relay audit findings from hundreds of regulated clients & organisations
As the audit development manager, I'm looking forward to the long term benefits that we'll get from using Q-Pulse. Not only will we get valuable analysis from the performance and areas of development of our audited organisations, but we'll also be able to improve and develop our Inspector performance and auditing techniques.
