POWERFUL OUT-OF-THE-BOX TOOLS TO HELP YOU MANAGE QUALITY

Supplier Qualification

Qualifying new suppliers can be tough.  After they fill out your questionnaires and you visit their site, how do you decide whether or not they get onto your Approved Suppliers List?  What if there are a lot of risks but they're the only ones who can do the customization you require? Sigma Solutions will provide you with supplier questionnaires designed to give you critical information your suppliers don't want you to know.  Quartz will help you assess suppliers using nine criteria to determine a risk score, and allow you to create, track and manage all the actions required to start working with a new supplier.  

Quartz comes with the following out-of-the-box tools

to help you manage suppliers

Supplier Monitoring

Outsourcing production to off-shore manufacturers can bring increased profits.  But how do you keep tabs on a production line that is thousands of miles (and a few timezones) away?  Keeping employees at your employees premises is expensive.  And so is paying 3rd party inspection.  Instead, suppliers can log into Quartz to upload daily production information including key leading indicators such as first pass yield, changes to raw materials, personnel changes, inspection results, etc.  Reduce evening phone calls with your overseas suppliers by reviewing supplier information at your convenience.  Discover and investigate potential problems before the product leaves your supplier's facility.

Supplier Actions

When you discover a potential issue with a supplier, create and assign actions directly in Quartz. See the status of your supplier actions as soon as you log in.  Request pictures and videos, and have your supplier upload them directly to Quartz.  No more enormous email threads - everyone can log into Quartz and see all the relevant information at their convenience.  

Supplier Evaluations

Evaluating supplier performance and providing feedback to your suppliers is a critical part of managing supply chain costs, and an integral part of the 2015 version of the ISO 9001 standard.  Quartz comes with a pre-defined process to assist you with quickly evaluating supplier performance.  Evolution criteria customized to your organization within minutes.  Create, track and manage actions to address any follow-up from a poor evaluation, all from within Quartz.
