Our document control module is designed to help enterprises and SMEs meet the most rigorous compliance requirements

For ISO, GDP and FDA compliance

Confidence information is being controlled properly

Your employees want to feel confident that the information they’re using is correct, controlled and compliant. They don’t want to battle bottlenecks, fight cluttered inboxes or be unsure about whether they’re going against important regulations or standards.

Document Manager gives you confidence that the right information is accessed by the right person at the right time. The system provides you with a best practice framework for managing any kind of documentation. You can also configure forms and fields so they correspond with those you’re already using in your business.

And Document Manager works with other business applications and on any device. This means your entire business can see, collaborate and challenge documentation.

Best of all, having free end users means you can make good document control practice a natural and invisible part of your business.

Best of all, every interaction is recorded in an audit trail, including time stamps, personnel, comments and amends. It’s easy to compare document versions and prevent costly mistakes.

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.

Document control software which works for your business

We join best practices with technology

Security first

Deploy the software on your internal servers or have it cloud-hosted in an ISO 27001 data centre. With the cloud-hosted option, you can be confident that the system will be rapidly deployed with almost no need for any internal IT resources. This option is professionally managed and offers a back-up, restore and firewall.


Our document control management module can be used with any combination of our other modules. To buy, just tell us how many administrator licences you need. Administrators are those who will manage the configuration, settings and have overall responsibility for the system.


Our document control management module enables you to tailor fields, workflows and risk categories. Our service implementation managers will help you work to best practice if you need guidance in assessing your current approach.


Our software has been deployed by global pharmaceutical businesses, NHS trusts and other health organisations. The solution has been validated as compliant with regulations such as GAMP 5, ISO 9001, ICH GCP E6 and FDA 21CFR Part 11, as well as electronic signature legislation such as the EU Electronic Signatures Directive. Talk to one of our team today about your validation requirements.

Rapid deployment

We have a very organised approach to implementing your system. During the first weeks of coming on board as a customer, you’ll receive a project plan, scoping workshop and dedicated support team to help you through every step of the process.


Our software solutions have a flexible, advanced application programming interface (API) which means data can be exchanged both from our software and into it.

By integrating your solutions, you’re bringing all your data together. This helps you improve engagement, work more productively and efficiently, and automatically drive activity.
