IBS Drives Quality Management Improvements With CompliantPro Version 7.1

New Features Include a Custom Dashboard and Reporting Enhancements for More Streamlined Performance of QM Activities

LEXINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - June 25, 2008) - IBS, the global leader in enterprise quality and compliance solutions, today announced the latest release of CompliantPro, its web-based quality management software. New features in CompliantPro 7.1 include a configurable custom dashboard, which facilitates easy, real-time access to user tasks, and reporting enhancements which simplify and refine the way users chart quality-related data.

The standard dashboard displays for each user all the documents that he or she is currently working on and all documents that require his or her actions, such as document reviews and approvals. The new Custom Dashboard adds additional enhancements. A Dashboard Notice allows a system administrator to display messages of common interest on each person's dashboard. This could be used, for instance, to display notices of company meetings or important changes to company policy. A Dashboard Links Panel allows users to create up to 20 labeled links to specific documents or views and a Dashboard View Panel allows users to display up to 5 views, saved document searches or reports. With the custom dashboard, users can log in and gain immediate access to the views, documents and searches they use the most. They can then reconfigure their dashboard as often as they want, to correspond with their evolving priorities or responsibilities.

A new Dashboard Administrative Utility allows administrators to configure special dashboards for individual users or groups of users such as shop floor workers and technicians to ensure that the information they need to do their job is instantly available upon logging into the system.

New reporting features include more sophisticated options for creating and viewing charts and graphs, Pareto enhancements, the ability to display reporting source data and the addition of specific reports. These latest improvements make it easier for users to quickly analyze their most meaningful data, share findings with managers and colleagues, and make fully informed business decisions.

A number of new utilities will facilitate the movement of documents and users from one organizational unit to another making the system easily adaptable to organizational changes.

There are dozens of other system enhancements in this release, including enhancements to the Search Builder user interface, enabling users to further refine criteria during searches for documents and records; an enhancement that allows for great user control over document layouts; and a feature that will allow for audit reviews at any time.

"CompliantPro 7.1 offers new features and enhancements that make it more adaptable to user needs," said Matthias Grossmann, CEO, IBS America. "By enabling an efficient, consistent approach to business activities, CompliantPro remains the best solution on the market for enterprise quality management."
