Microsoft doesn’t provide any software solutions intended for quality management. With Dynamics 365, Microsoft provides access to tools for sales, finance, HR, and supply chain purposes. However, a quality management solution is clearly missing from the Microsoft software catalogue.
Microsoft 365 doesn’t serve as a Quality Management System (QMS) software solution but it brings the main ingredients needed for a QMS, like strong collaboration capabilities with SharePoint, tools for videoconferencing and discussions with Teams, workflow automation with Power Automate, tools for Business Intelligence with Power BI, and much more.
BPAQuality365® feature and technology overview video.
BPA Solutions has developed an end-to-end QMS software on Microsoft 365, Teams, SharePoint & Power BI, bridging the gap in Microsoft’s offering for quality management solutions. Currently, there are two software versions available for quality management – BPAQuality365® – and compliance in regulated industries – BPAMedical365®. Our 6th generation software is the result of more than 20 years of professional expertise as well as Microsoft development experience. A great deal of attention has been paid to the overall performance and user experience during the redesign phase.

Moving to a Cross-Functional Team-Oriented QMS Software
Microsoft Teams has become a standard teamworking tool worldwide. Organizations have begun to create new ways of increasing productivity with cross-functional and cross-organizational teams. Including internal and external stakeholders on secured workspaces and workflows has made relationships and organizational boundaries evolve. This has revealed opportunities for cross-organizational process improvement.
Integrating Teams discussions, video conferencing and business intelligence in the QMS enables instant quality improvement while also boosting productivity. With Microsoft Teams, the QMS software integrates along with tools used by frontline collaborators, workers in the field and back-office collaborators. This is a new opportunity for organizations to replace traditional email-driven workflows while dispelling common information clusters in departments.
Users interact with the QMS while chatting in Teams and share QMS documents or data with colleagues, and simplify meeting and task management.
Meeting Your Unique Needs With An Agile QMS Software
As quality experts, we designed an agile QMS software to meet various organization’s unique needs. This is thanks to modular components and flexible workflow automation. Clients have full control of changing the software while adopting the best QM practices possible.
BPA modular components extend Microsoft capabilities, providing a great user experience while filling in the gaps of missing features that are needed for a high-performing QMS. This includes relational capabilities, report generation, graphical charts, eSignatures, intelligent forms, reminders and more. At BPA Solutions, we are certain that QMS software has to be versatile enough to adapt to client organizations. We believe it’s counterproductive when organizations have to adapt their processes to match rigid software solutions.
Clients have full control to change the QMS software and automated workflows.
Achieving More With Microsoft 365, Teams, SharePoint & Power BI
Microsoft constantly brings new technologies into the market and innovates the way organizations will work in the future. When using Microsoft 365, our QMS software directly benefits from these technologies. BPA continually explores new areas to use innovative tools in the context of quality management. We have designed powerful software extensions built on the latest Microsoft technologies, ready to be implemented by customers without the need for development. This includes pre-built automated workflows with Power Automate and generic Power Apps for incident and audit management. With artificial intelligence we provide tools to augment human intelligence. This allows for the opportunity to find the right documents by asking common questions to a chatbot.
With Microsoft Teams, we are working on developing new innovative features to use the QMS alongside discussion flows. Users interact with the QMS while they’re chatting in Teams. They then have the ability to share cards with colleagues including QMS documents and data. Microsoft Planner is a great tool for managing tasks. Interfacing the QMS with Planner will bring about powerful task management capabilities and reminders in the QMS. BPA’s quality software is easy to interface with Dynamics 365 thanks to pre-built Microsoft connectors. This represents the ideal quality management extension to Microsoft Dynamics.
