Why do you need a Quality control Module in ERP ?
In this blog lets see about the Quality Control Module in ERP Software. The Quality serves as a pillar for successful running of any businesses. Any long term customers are a sign that a business offers good quality products. Quality is something any consumers expect from a manufacturer and if it meets out then you definitely gain trust from them. This is a major aspect that helps you survive the competition and stay in the market. It is not only the best product you give but for how long is all that matters.
For example, when it comes to buying any appliances, there are N number of brands available in the market. Each person can have various expectations on its specification, broad variety that a company offers, even colors available and so on. But above all most people end up with a brand that serves for quite a long period. This clearly shows that people are always attracted to the best quality and service. In another case, imagine you have earned the customers trust on quality and everything is going fine. But unexpectedly you have missed a quality check which resulted in a defective product that reaches a customer. That’s it ! The name you have earned all these years will vanish all of second. And it is really so difficult to gain their trust again and people easily move on to another brand.
Hence it is not only that you should adhere to the quality standards but as well as you should maintain those standards without fail. An ERP is a software package as you well know, where quality is one of the modules integrated. Let us see some of the features from Freedom ERP’s quality module.
