The Akadeum team had already begun scoping eQMS platforms as Angela joined, and had a frontrunner in mind.
Since Angela had previous eQMS experience from other roles, she was tasked with taking over the search.
An easy-to-use system with fast implementation was her main criterion after going up against other clunky platforms in the past:
With other eQMS systems, I almost felt like I should've taken classes in coding.
They were so convoluted and confusing - and making procedures to train other people how to use them was also difficult.
Akadeum wanted a cloud-based and audit-ready platform which could go under the microscope of an FDA inspection.
After performing her own search of the market, Angela identified the same frontrunner as the rest of the team: Qualio.
Akadeum became Qualio customers shortly after, and Angela and the team were guided through a 'seamless' implementation and training process which completed in a 'phenomenal' 3 months.
