Implementation of Doc and Training
MasterControl Quality Management system
Commentaires : MasterControl has allowed us to replace book shelves of policy binders, file cabinets of employee training and competency forms. Staff can all access the same document at the same time instead of waiting for the binder to be free. Regulatory requirements are easy to track within the system.
This system is flexible enough for a any regulated industry. It includes a document management module, employee training module, Quality module that included Deviations, CAPA, Change Control, non-Conformance; Quality, risk management, etc.
The suite of modules has not been certified as HIPAA compliant, except for the Documents module. Full HIPAA compliance is on their timeline for 3rd quarter 2020.

Implementation of Doc and Training
We had a paper training process and used PDM for document control, which was not ideal because the user had access to prior control document revisions. Once we were able to inventory our procedures and forms, we were able to implement a solution that is long term sustainable
We know we hit the jackpot, when the [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] of the company said that was able to do training very easily because the document was attached to the training. He didn't need to attend training on how to use the software to figure out how do complete his procedure assignment training.
1) For the user, it was very easy for the user to complete training. Steps are very intuitive 2) Implemented a document control solution that prohibited certain users from seeing archived versions of the documents. 3) each to find document by searching by datacard elements
didn't set up data card structure as best that we could.
It offers you more than your moneys worth.

There is nothing I don't like, the product worked above my expectation.
Middle-of-the-road quality system
- Often includes impressive enhancements to the system between version updates - Useful knowledge base that can be leveraged for troubleshooting defects or common issues - Excellent document control - Ability to implement Enterprise Business Units is useful for managing more than one business unit in the system
- Navigation can be challenging for end-users with both limited or expansive access and rights to the system - Lack of GUI customization - Occasional defects have caused quality issues - jReports isn't completely user friendly therefore incorrect usage can slow down the system - On-demand self-led library is not free which contains excellent resources that can be leveraged for end-user education and/or troubleshooting purposes

Commentaires : Overall experience with Qx has been excellent. Implementing most of the quality event forms had been relatively easy and end users have expressed having a good experience using the system.
I like how easy the software is to use for end users. It is also set up to be easy for admins as well.
The only con is that some of the features aren’t configurable for admins, so there are a lot of workarounds needed.
MasterControl is a very good QMS solution
Commentaires : Overall, I'm very satisfied with MasterControl
MasterControl is easy to use and has great functionality
Some functions are not as straight forward as they could be, and somewhat counter-intuitive

Allows for ISO 13485 and FDA Compliance and Efficiencies Gained for Users
Commentaires : I have loved how user friendly the platform is and how it allows us to more quickly close gaps as we strive towards ISO 13485 and FDA compliance next year. It allows for tons of efficiencies like 300% increase in records pushed through and allowing users to real time report quality issues.
The tracking/trending capabilities across the global business so we can escalate issues as needed and continuously optimize our products and processes. The ease of integration between modules allows for real time reporting and efficiencies for users. We released 300% more documents with this platform than our paper based system.
Some user features that are missing like doc number in my tasks and that CAPA due dates set based on risk scores.
MasterControl - Where Quality Changes Everything
We have been using the Audit, Process, Documents and Training modules and find the interconnection between the modules to be the most useful functionality that we did not see with our other systems. MasterControl is easy to use and in most cases is intuitive in terms of the workflows and visibility to end users. The MasterControl Support team have been one of the best I've worked with and they will work quickly and effectively to ensure any issues are resolved and applicable feedback given.
Analytics / Reporting has been one of our main pain points and although there are many reports across the system and modules which show individual elements etc, there are not many reports which contain a full data set of information needed especially in terms of Training or Process reports. We also have some wishes for future enhancements to the software and this is where the MasterControl User Voice forum comes in most handy where users can submit ideas for enhancements as well as vote on other use voices.
You get what you put into it
Commentaires : System is good but can require a lot of workarounds. Not as intuitive or user friendly ad it could be.
Great system for training compliance. Allows us to effectively track training compliance
Some difficulty with assigning classroom training. Cannot select more than one trainer at a time
Commentaires : Always helpful and tons of resources.
Easy to use from previous versions of Master Control.
N/A still learning the new interface and getting use to the system.
Powerful, but steep learning curve for users
Commentaires : Overall, it does what it is supposed to do. Once you get rolling, it's good. I wish documentation was better. I wish more control was given over individual document types. UI and bugs are annoying, but not show stoppers (though there is potential for the uninitiated). For the price, I would expect better UI/UX and fewer bugs, but it fills a niche, and the price reflects that accordingly.
The system is definitely a powerful system. There are a lot of great features just in documents and process modules. There are plenty of controls in place to control quality. Does everything you would expect of a quality management system.
Overpriced, IMHO. Has some bugs, and occasionally, they have caused quality issues. UI could definitely use some work - way too many additional clicks and navigations to get to get where you're going. New users have a difficult time adopting the system. There is a steep learning curve for both users and admins. Documentation leaves a lot to be desired in my experience. Would much prefer roles/rights be based on infocard type, not the vault they live in. Blanket rights on a vault cause unnecessary complexity in configurations. Not all users in a vault (e.g. geographical location, department, etc.), should have access to every document type in that vault, as recommended in MC best practices pptx...
Initial Site to Multiple Sites
I've been a MasterControl System Administrator for two different types of companies now. Both companies started using MasterControl at one site and have/are spreading the usage of this software to their international locations. The process to deploy to other locations is very controlled and Administration has plenty of options in regards to how much data can be made available between the two.
Overall, great solution to the answer many of the needs of a company in today's regulated industries.
MasterControl bridges many of the critical functions of a regulated industry. The ability to have documents/training/audit/event forms/projects and more interacting directly is a huge advantage. All of these processes are required anyway, why waste resources on individual manual systems or separated software systems? MasterControl brings all of the benefits of a non-manual process with additional bonuses due to the inter-connectivity.
The pricing is quite steep - especially in regards to licensing it's always a significant business decision to invest in more. The upgrade/enhancement process is actually designed well with the exception of retroactive updates. Many new/requested features are implemented in newer versions but upgrading is also a significant business decision.
A great company with an even better product.
There are so many different options you can choose to utilize to whatever best fits your company's needs. It's also great, because the different products can "communicate" with one another to pull information from one area to another. It saves our company so much time. Not to mention every time we have implemented a new product, it has been such a great experience. I know sometimes it can be stressful, but MC does such a great job at making the process as easy as possible. I truly can't say enough great things about the software of the company.
This isn't necessarily a software issue, we are hopefully upgrading to the cloud and we will have the new reporting system that we don't have now.
Mission Critical Quality Excellence
Commentaires : It has really helped us solve many issues with quality control and compliance. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants to move to the top tier of quality for their product.
This software is a complete solution with more modules you can add being built all the time. It is cloud based and does more than any in house solution could be built to do for the same price. The support team is very responsive in accepting our suggestions for improvements.
Even though there is a lot of support, it can be time consuming and very labor intensive to integrate the many pieces needed to implement the entire solution. It is a bargain but still very pricey for a small company and this will eventually limit its market.
Commentaires : Very good customer service for any issues.
One eco system, training and now the ability to do insights.
It's starting to look dated. Searches and results are limited.
Don't know how we got along without it!
Commentaires : At AcelRx we went from a paper based system to MasterControl and there is no comparison! Definitely made things so much better to keep control of documents.
Being able to have all our documents in one place is great. Launching DCO packets is so easy. Being able to log into MasterControl from anywhere makes collaboration easy for anyone to do especially since we have been working from home. Also having control of your documents and signature manifests from DCOs help to streamline audits. I also have to say that MasterControl has been the easiest system to help keep all users training up to date and on time.
with all the updates and upgrades the cons I had have been improved
Daily User and Admin
Ability to move documents along and track status in a simplistic manner
Limitations, can be clunky having to add things multiple places multiple times
MasterControl is the Best!!
I have been a MasterControl SysAdmin for 7 years. I have seen so many enhancements to the software over the years and always excited for where the future of MastetControl. is going.
Every company utilizes MasterControl to best fit business needs. As a customer there may be some features that I would like to see added but it may not benefit other companies. Through MasterControl’s Hackathon event, MasterControl customers can collaboratively make suggestions for systems enhancements that can be executed by the developers in 48 hours. It is amazing to see this done.
Commentaires : Overall, implementing MasterControl has increased what we can do as a company. We've freed up time and resources to focus on business matters as opposed to the housekeeping tasks that take up so much of everyone's time. MasterControl is constantly working on improvements and that give our company great confidence that this will be a long lasting relationship.
MasterControl has brought many improvements to our company including transparency and efficiency, two things that are near impossible with a paper system. We continuously find benefits and ways improve our use of the system and look forward to implementing more modules.
As a reporting nerd, I would like some more freedom / options with reports. I understand that large, involved reports can slow down processes for everyone on the cloud, but it would still be nice to have some more freedom or even a way to do reporting outside of the system.
Very Useful Tip
Commentaires : Absolutely love using MasterControl. We did have a different filing document system but this works so much better.
I love how organized the software is and how easy it is to find documents.
We have documents numbered as such LLL-LLL-L-NNNN and won't pull up if typed in the top navigational bar.
MasterControl provides many modules to enable an all encompassing QMS to be put in place in one single system. This helps with streamlining from the potential use of multiple electronic systems as well as provide efficiencies with bringing all these processes in an electronic format compared to manual.
MasterControl's JReports system is not the most intuitive in order to pull data for reporting.
Commentaires : It has been overall positive. Anytime I have been stuck I was able to reach out and get support from the friendly MC staff.
I like that the QMS is centrally located and the system meets all my compliance needs.
I with the data retrieval we’re more integrated. Extracting data can be compartmentalized depending on what I am extracting and consolidating to something useful can be time consuming.
The Best Software for Document Management
Commentaires : The document and Training management is excellent and easy to configure, deploy and implement.
The Collaboration is the best part of document module and workflow customization is simple and easy and any given document.
The cost of the software for is bit too expensive, specially with the user license. The cost of customer support is high.
The software has a slight learning curve, but once you get used to the environment the ease of use for daily activities is great.
I dislike the cloud based solution, which is reliant on AWS servers. The price is a little steep for what is offered, but this is offset with incredible customer support
Quality at the source
The ability to process documents with revision history in an existing info card is amazing. Moving from a completely paper based system with a digital tracking tool for all documents is innovative.
I do not like being able to add users onto a collaboration after they complete abd quit
