Innovative approach for managing audits by using BPA Quality and Microsoft Office 365 technologies like Flow for automation, Power Apps for mobility and Power BI for advanced reporting.
Managing audits or inspections is not an easy process. Typical considerations when managing audits include: audit planning and preparation, audit execution – e.g. with a mobile device, treatment of findings and follow-up actions, audit report preparation and sharing, audit monitoring, notifications to the concerned people, audit process validation, and business intelligence.
The audit module in BPA Quality lets you track any audit, like internal or stakeholder audits, quality, health, security, environmental, or data privacy audits or assessments.
A configurable workflow – built with Microsoft Flow – automatically alerts the right persons throughout the entire audit process, update the audit status, enforce all questions to be answered and actions to be compliant prior closing. The workflow generates new audits automatically based on the audit frequency, avoiding manual audit planning.
In this example, the audit is executed by using a simple mobile app. The app was created with Power Apps and it’s completely configurable. The auditor goes through each question and set compliance with notes and append photos if needed.
Finally we present a simple business intelligence report built with Power BI, with no code. The report lets you check the coverage of your audits, here by ISO 9001 clause. By selecting a clause, the report will dynamically filter audits where this specific clause was audited, questions that have been asked and the related number of findings.
Together with Office 365 technologies, we bring tools to improve traditional business processes.
