Secure, Reliable Data Storage
Qudos 3 uses a robust, industry-leading MS SQL Server database to offer more secure, reliable data storage with the best options for analysis, reporting, and notification - helping you access important information and distribute it where needed in your organisation. This trusted platform will help you turn data into actions and better decisions.
A range of security measures including advanced encryption are utilised to protect your data.
Controlled access is via individual User IDs and passwords. Your own administrators may enable each user's view/edit rights access based on selected criteria to best suit your needs.
The Master Document List displays approved documents in their native formats in read-only mode - eliminating the possibility of unauthorised changes to them. Authorised changes are by a controlled Revision process - requiring appropriate security permission and password sign-off.
In major data-entry forms throughout the application - such as Objective, Audit Record, Meeting Record, Risk Assessment, Benchmark Assessment, and Action Forms - the integrity of data is protected by locking with unique User ID and Password.

Easy to Use
For the technically minded, the Qudos 3 uses leading-edge Microsoft Dotnet technology - the industry standard for web-based, enterprise software.
For the rest of us, that means that the user interface is a clean modern look in a familiar web browser environment. There is no installation necessary on client-side computers - resulting in much less maintenance work for IT personnel, no delays for new users, and multi-site / off-site capability.
To save time and effort, Qudos 3 automates many tasks for you - such as scheduling document reviews, generating actions from meetings, audits and risk assessments, and generating email notifications.
