AuditXL provides a well organized, extremely easy-to-use method of measuring and reporting on quality compliance. This is achieved through user developed and maintained AuditXL modules built from inception addressing management systems and compliance audit systems, or, through customized versions of the modules previously developed and currently available to our clients. These include:

With AuditXL's "Developer" component, users may easily build a customized module(s) to meet their organization's compliance and quality audit requirements for the above standards, processes and methodologies, thereby rendering an automated technique to measure, report, and uncover non-conformities in a total quality management system.

Non-conformities are uncovered while the audit is taking place. Subsequently, for those non-conformities uncovered, corrective action plans would be developed, implemented and monitored by the person(s) performing the audit, by other(s) to whom the task is assigned, or by a collaborative effort from both.
