Based in Merrillville, Indiana, MonoSol are a world leader in the manufacturing of water soluble polymer films, compounds, and solutions.
Their MonoDose films are used to create water-soluble delivery systems for everyday items such as the liquid detergents and dishwasher tablets available in most supermarkets.
Moving from a client-server document management system (DMS); MonoSol required a web-based integrated Quality Management Software solution that could support the changing needs of their growing organisation.
The EQMS software needs to be functionally rich, providing not just Document Management, but Audit, CAPA and other Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) functions.
After a comprehensive market-scanning process, Qualsys’ EQMS became Monosol’s first-choice GRC solution.
“We are truly delighted that Monosol chose to partner with Qualsys to use EQMS throughout the business” says Michael Ord, Qualsys’ Business Development Manager.
“I'd like to thank both the MonoSol and Qualsys Project Teams; who have worked quickly and efficiently to implement various EQMS GRC software modules.
With manufacturing operations in 2 locations in the US and 1 in the UK, MonoSol's EQMS users require various methods of training and support. Being transparent and true collaborators allows us to successfully bridge the Atlantic divide.
We're looking forward to growing our business relationship in years to come.”

Managing and implementing upcoming updates to ISO standards throughout a growing organisation.
The Document Control Module is being launched to replace an older system. The EQMS system will be rolled out to the entire company and is being embraced by multiple layers of personnel. Other modules such as the CAPA manager will centralise a place for multiple departments to work through different critical improvement activities.
The initial presentation showing how all the modules are tied together and work in harmony was very appealing.
The user interface is user-friendly which was attractive to us because of our plan to roll many aspects of the program out to multiple levels in the organisation. The initial show of client support by Qualsys was also an appealing feature that helped us decide to move forward with EQMS.
Since first contact, the team at Qualsys has been extremely responsive and flexible to meet our needs. Even while working with the Atlantic separating us the support has been great.
EQMS is going to centralise many aspects of the business. EQMS is going to help us become more efficient and provide multiple layers of the organisation a more collaborative platform.
Customer satisfaction will be impacted with much faster reactions to any potential concerns. Internal customers will be tied together for more efficient closure to open items, and we will show large savings on paper with the use of the digital signatures.
One of the largest opportunities is the ability to get multiple layers of the organisation communicating in a centralised place, accomplishing goals more quickly and efficiently.
Yes, based on the experience thus far the program is superior to others we have seen and experienced. Additionally, the customer support and training have been very useful and timely.
