"Powerful Auditing Tool with Enhanced Features"

What do you like best?

The product is very easy to use and intuitive. The ability to conduct activities on a cell phone or tablet makes the product robust at point of use, and reporting is streamlined. Ease continually updates the product and makes it better each month. They have been very interested in feedback from the user group and have incorporated many suggestions from users.

What do you dislike?

I wish there were additional quality tools associated with the software, like nonconformance tracking and links to the corrective action side (currently being developed and enhanced). In general, there are very few things that are not to like about the Beacon product or Ease team.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The support team is exceptional, with a focus on continued enhancement to the software. I have been very impressed with the team since the beginning of our relationship as Customer/Supplier. This software was a breeze to implement, and the training was conducted in a matter of hours, instead of weeks. No "support team" was needed, and most of the activities can be done via WebEx.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The administration of our LPA process has been minimized. The reporting features allow us to analyze data that was formerly not available. The randomization of questions feature helps us keep audits fresh and relevant. The ability to categorize the audits into buckets has allowed us to add 5S, Safety, and other internal audit elements to the LPA process. This has allowed us to take a familiar tool and implement it across not only the plant, but across the division.

"Better than paper"

What do you like best?

The interface is easy to navigate, and training or the 'User' roles is very simple. Mitigations are also very visible helping them be reliably addressed.

What do you dislike?

Scheduling of audits is abysmal. It must be manually rescheduled any time new auditors or audits are introduced. Scheduling a few weeks of audits for 4 different users groups takes separate actions for each rather than any memory. Loading time for scheduling can be upwards of 15 minutes, which increased my scheduling time from 5 minutes confirming my automatic scheduling in my previous system to several hours a month at minimum. Users are unable to reschedule audits or transfer to someone else, so the admin (who is also the scheduler) has to maintain for sick, vacation, etc for every auditor. At a site my size, this means tracking a hundred schedules.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Easy training for auditors, an aesthetically pleasing interface, and accountability.

What Quality Management (QMS) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Not the best tool for auditing."

What do you like best?

Unlike the title the website itself is easy to use.

What do you dislike?

However, there should be a time period that allows for making up missed audits. We should not have to rely on one person to know if we are at work or not. We should be able to complete these later.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I don't think much is getting solved. More things are getting looked at but you have to practice these things regularly to get everyone on the same page. If myself or a supervisor goes to look at a press and there is a problem we solve it ourselves right there. Then have to let whoever was responsible know they messed it up.

"Runs it self"

What do you like best?

I like being able to input the schedule and it manages itself. Audits are conducted, mitigations are issued, and assigned to the owner. Then they add their corrective actions. No more paper, and tracking people down. It's all there!

What do you dislike?

I have some issues with the scheduling being a slow. Our other plants don't have the same issue, but that would be the only improvement I can think of.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Modifying questions to fit our needs is easy and instant. That helps as we fix one issue, and don't have mitigations, then we can add the next item, and focus correcting it.

"Great way of measuring areas within the plant for effectiveness."

What do you like best?

I like the fact that the system is upgradable. You can add any area to it and begin auditing.

What do you dislike?

One thing that I dislike is that the windows for completion are only 10 days. There are times where people are unable to complete the audits due to work schedule and availability.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The problems we are solving is the ability to assign, track and hold people responsible for assigned audits.

"LPA / Safety audits simplified"

What do you like best?

Automated scheduling, ease of use which creates consistency. Like the fact that accountability is integrated into the system. The system allows for the freedom to eliminate the micro managing that would be required with excel spreadsheets or access programs.

What do you dislike?

Would like to see improvements in the overall speed functions. Will occasionally see freeze ups and need to reopen program.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Utilize offered support and training classes

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Simplified LPA processes resulting in improved performance and accountability.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Better follow up on 5S and LPAs as we would lose site of the follow up using paper copies.
