Stronger, more informed business decisions

Hundreds of reporting options means you can understand the health of your documentation. You know what has been accessed, what hasn’t, who is doing what, and when.


I've been our document management co-ordinator since we rolled out Qualsys's GRC software more than 10 years ago. I like the system a lot, and it's grown considerably since then. I look after 13 sites with nearly 12,000 documents so I'm kept very busy with document reviews, change requests and uploading new documents. It's a very user-friendly system. I do feel that it can be quite time-consuming behind the scenes but this makes for a very compliant system which, when areas are being audited, is a great help. Qualsys's support has been great over the years and they answer all queries and requests in a timely manner.
