We understand that quality and safety don’t exist inside a technology bubble. As experienced managers, you know that quality and safety take a combination of technology and practices – just like effective project management.
Let’s talk about how OnSite can help.
For quality, there are certainly barometric indications – percentage complete, percentage of cost, etc. And, there are specific identifiers such as scrap and rework which are both captured in OnSite. But beyond the numbers are the capabilities to use OnSite at the point of activity to report quality issues and have them escalated immediately – to have corrective activity applied when it is least costly. Alerts can be configured when inspections or approvals are required, and all of the data is made available in an auditable trail for future process improvements.
For safety, there are two levels. The first, completely outside the scope of OnSite, are common safety practices that are instilled as a matter of everyday practice. Think steel toed shoes in a production environment. The second level, where OnSite can help, are those processes where multiple levels of safety authorizations are essential to ensuring accident eliminations. OnSite helps in these processes by building in approval alerts and over-riding all “paper traveler is the master” logic configurations. Essentially, the process is locked until the precedent activities have been checked off and/or approved. Not many processes require this level of safety scrutiny, but when they do OnSite and your management expertise make for powerful combination.
One other note about safety is that for those organizations that need safety compliance training, all of those hours are tracked for future reporting requirements – eliminating the need to compile reports from training course certificates or manual forms.
