BPA proudly announces the release of BPA Pilot, a generative AI-based tool, supporting end users in improving quality of the delivered products and services, boosting efficiency and optimizing costs.
BPA Pilot is a virtual companion for asking questions and getting informative answers related to your internal eQMS content and/or external Internet-based data. The tool works like a chatbot and can be used from both the BPA software or from Microsoft Teams. Based on the eQMS modules used and the context, BPA Pilot suggests preconfigured questions guiding end users to solve a non-conformance, implement a root cause analysis, propose corrective actions or content to comply with regulations. Prompting for external data, like ISO or FDA regulations, the BPA Pilot helps populating the eQMS and supports end users to better understand requirements and good practices. Thanks to the BPA Pilot, the eQMS becomes a key venue for employees to find and learn about company processes and regulations, simplifying the onboarding process, and ultimately saving costs.
