I work for a company that manufactures A/V equipment and I'm looking for QMS software that can help out the Incoming Quality Control department, specifically with inspections and material management. I was wondering if anyone has a recommendation or advice, good or bad. I have evaluated around 30 software packages, but I don't come from a traditional quality background and could use any advice that someone wants to share!
We laid out the requirements. Did a buy, build, or reuse analysis. And came up with the best option was to build our own. All the commercial applications just had too many things that they did, that we were either not interested in, or our other software tools could already do.
Also, if this is going to be a major purchase for your organization, I would check to see if there is a Gartner's Magic Square for what you are looking for. If you have never heard of Gartner, talk with your IT department. They may have an account already established.
