In terms of putting dashboards together, as an executive, one of the things that we do is understanding what type of data you need.



00:10 - 00:19
You have to know what type of data you need and then what in what format. I wanted to know, for example, high risk Non-Conformances and deviations.



00:19 - 00:31
I wanted to know high risk CAPAs and what their status are and which ones are close to closure and what is holding them up. Those are conversations I wanted to have at my fingertips.



00:31 - 00:40
The best place for that is your dashboards. We did dashboards for individuals so you could have your own dashboard, but you could also configure the dashboard for management review.



00:40 - 00:52
We used Unifize for management review. So instead of spending 15 hours being an analyst and getting somebody to put all these data together, the data was already available in dashboards, in Unifize.



00:52 - 01:16
So what we did is basically take a screenshot of the data and Unifize, and that would be a management review slide made it very simple. So instead of weeks of looking for data, aggregating them into sales and uploading them in a format that you want, you could just simply do a nice management review dashboard and then you could take a screenshot or email it or put in a PowerPoint presentation.



01:16 - 01:23
There very many ways of doing that, but you could easily have that information and have it in Unifize.

But what we've known from what I experience was, is we were able to get there with the system. We still there with the system. The system has what is needed to provide us what we're looking for, because every company, admittedly, is trying to get compliant. If we educate people, if we get people the education that they need and to get over the fear factor, I think 90% of those things can be resolved because most people will go to what they're most familiar with.What I worked with from a different company, but they're not willing to sit down and look at what the demographics are saying. People are into social media now. People are moving fast into fast paced world. But technologies are still antiquated. So there's a disconnect here, right? So while we're moving at a fast pace at home with dragging at work, so why can't we continue that speed while we at work?If your supplier has issues and you're not informed on time, you want to have an alternate supplier in place. If your suppliers are not qualified, you may not know that that needs to happen. And so when you have an integrated system that speaks to itself and is giving you all this data, you literally have the pulse of the organization in your hands as an executive at a money bound access.
