ISO 9001: 2015 Compliance
Q-Pulse helps organisations gain and maintain certification to ISO 9001:2015, the latest edition of the world’s most popular management standard.
ISO 9001:2015 requires your organisation to make sure that its quality management system (QMS) meets its needs and that it takes a risk-based approach to quality.
Being able to meet your organisation’s needs is the first step towards making sure that your QMS can help manage quality effectively and efficiently. Together with a risk-based approach, this helps lower the cost of managing quality, stop problems before they happen and comply with regulations and standards.
Q-Pulse’s configurable capabilities let you tailor your QMS to your needs and help you and your organisation take a risk-based approach to managing quality.
Q-Pulse is a single, centralised solution that helps streamline, and effectively manage, all compliance activities for ISO standards.

Alignment with ISO 31000: Enterprise Risk Management
While ISO 9001:2015 has adopted a risk-based model to become the world number one operational risk management standard, ISO 31000 represents best practice in Enterprise Risk Management. Issued for guidance only, it is not possible to become certified to ISO 31000.
Our federated best in class compliance management applications Q-Pulse and Pentana help customers implement the practices and recommendation of ISO 31000. Ideagen Coruson provides a cloud solution.
ISO 14001 Compliance
Implementing an ISO 14001 Environmental Management System (EMS) requires active participation from all staff members and departments, and even top management committing and endorsing activities. Employees frequently focus on documentation and gathering data for audits rather than activities or actions that can help the company improve.
Ideagen helps customers to achieve ISO 14001 and the business benefits that go with it: overall operational performance, increasing efficiency, and cost savings associated with emissions, discharges, waste handling and disposal.
From multi-national, multi-site organisations to local workshops, users have found Q-Pulse easy to use and valuable in improving staff engagement with their EMS.
ISO 13485 Compliance
ISO 13485 is a globally recognised medical device standard and specifies requirements for a quality management system in order to ensure and verify that customer and regulatory conditions are met by the medical device industry.
Compliance with ISO 13485 can enable medical device companies to implement and streamline robust processes and procedures to ensure quality, reliability and safety are achieved throughout the product lifecycle. Within a shifting global market, consistently delivering high quality products or services can create competitive advantage for medical device companies. A robust product lifecycle that follows the principles of ISO 13485 can accelerate time to market and mitigate future risk for organisations.
This paper examines how the quality management product, Q-Pulse, matches up against specific ISO 13485 clauses in order to create a holistic and streamlined approach to quality management to achieve continuous improvement and competitive advantage.

OHSAS 18001/ISO 45001
Organisations without an Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSMS) notice that many incidents result from poor control of organisational and technical change. They find it difficult to plan for hazard identification, getting staff to engage with health and safety procedures and being able to stand up to unexpected audits.
Our software benefits organisations by providing a centralised framework to manage safety, quality and risk. By having information available at the point of need it reduces the bureaucratic burden of a paper-based system and promotes the ownership of key compliance activities, providing easy access to relevant documents and non-conformances.
