Organizations can be struggling with an overload of quality measurements, which may be difficult to convert into real improvements. How do you involve the entire organization in measuring and improving quality? How do you set up your quality system as a smart and continuous process?
It all begins with measurements
Take a moment and think about what it is that you want to measure. What is the best time and how to measure? Collecting data through checklists and audits is the basis of every QMS. However, this is still often done manually on paper or in Excel. Digitize your forms and checklists and the continuous collection of data is made very easy. When measurements are done in a simple and easy way, you create time for what really matters: making data driven adjustments and work towards continuous quality improvement.
Using the software of CYS allows you to continuously collect relevant data, create data driven insights which allow you to make the right decisions.
Looking at quality from all angles
Besides customers, your employees have a very good idea about the quality. They often handle a product on a daily basis or speak to customers about the delivered service. They know very well what the good qualities are and even may have suggestions on improvements.
And of course, business information can tell you a lot about quality. How often is a product returned? Are there complaints and about what? What is your right first time rate on a delivered service?
We call listening to customers (Voice of Customer), employees (Voice of Employee) and business results (Voice of Business) with equal importance Experience Management (XM). By combining results, you create a complete overview, and you make the right decisions for the entire organization.
With our software you can collect feedback from your customers and employees, combine this with business data and identify problem areas quickly and easily.
When measuring, analyzing, suggest improvements and reporting on quality is the sole job of one quality manager, progress can be slowly if all. To organize quality improvement in such a way that the entire organization plays their part, is the next step for many companies.
Quality improvement needs to take place on a strategic, tactical and operational level and be on the agenda from marketing to production.
