This year, we blogged a lot about accreditation management operations because we see the same issues from organization to organization – disjointed processes leading to manual, timely tasks that slow down the accreditation cycle. Hopefully our past blogs on accreditation management can help guide your organization to a successful and more efficient 2017.
With the mobile nature of accreditation surveys and quality assessments, it makes sense to incorporate a mobile strategy in your auditing practices.
There are plenty of options out there when choosing smartphones and you should expect accreditation management software to work properly on any of them, not to mention larger format tablets. Many insist that the size or form-factor of even the largest smart phone is not adequate for the data collection activities that are necessary for an audit. It may be true that utilizing a smartphone to type up a full audit findings and recommendations report is less than ideal, but its usefulness in collecting information during the physical walkthrough or inspection should be considered.

Whether it’s too many manual processes or disjointed systems, these accreditation bodies all express that they do not have enough time to focus on customer compliance.
