We use a software program called Q-Pulse by Gael, Ltd. Each lab has to
record its "nonconformances", select the root causes, identify a corrective
action if needed, perform a corrective action if needed, and do a
follow-up... all these actions are documented in this software program.
Each lab supervisor is able to see what nonconformances are still
unresolved/not closed out in their lab, and the program's in-house
administrative manager can track problems that seem to be recurring.
The Q-Pulse program also enables us to record training records and staff
proficiency testing, equipment calibration data, and all of our SOPs.
You can find out if this is what you're looking for by going to their
website (entering in 'Q-Pulse' in your search terms is more direct).
