Simpler is much better than our previous paper-based QMS system. Document management, including versioning and digital signatures, is hugely better. We are just now implementing CAPA and defect management, which is the last piece we needed. We are very happy with Simpler, especially their service and support, and highly recommend it.

Pros

Simpler gave us excellent pricing, customer support for understanding how to use their system and set up our QMS, and is easy to use. We can continue to use Microsoft Office for our documents. They have templates for all of the QMS sections that we could choose to use as the basis for our documents. They provided lots of hours in a structured way to work us through the migration of our paper based system to Simpler. My users have a varied level of technical sophistication with software, and everybody found the system easy to use.

Cons

My issues are pretty minor. Sometimes the software runs a bit slowly, which I think may be a server issue. Simpler does a good job in keeping track of user training, but can only do "read and understood" acknowledgement. Simpler says that they are working on automated quizzes that can be set up to verify that training was received, but that feature has not been implemented yet. We do the quiz on paper and then upload to Simpler, which is fine at our small scale.

Reasons for Switching to SimplerQMS

Price, feature set, ease of use, and most importantly support and help with setup/startup.

Response from SimplerQMS

Thank you for choosing SimplerQMS, Subba! We're glad to hear that you're satisfied with our product and our customer support.

It's great to know that our software is easy to use for your team and that you find our templates helpful. Document controls, versioning, electronic signatures, and Microsoft Office Integration are some of the most popular features among our customers, so we're happy to hear that those are also working well for you.

Regarding the speed issue, you should not be experiencing this problem. We have reached out to you to find the root cause and fix it.

Our automated Quiz (Training Assessment) feature is now released, so you can benefit from this improvement instantly.

Thank you for being a SimplerQMS customer and for your continued feedback!

Great service and support. Easy to get started. Well working in document control.

Pros

- Easy to create and sign documents

Response from SimplerQMS

Thank you for your honest review, Sanne. We're glad to hear that you find SimplerQMS easy to use and that find our document control capabilities well-working.

It's true that metadata can take some getting used to, but it's a powerful way to organize and find your documents quickly. We often see that our customers get a much better structure of their data and improve their ability to easily find information due to the use of metadata.

We hope you'll continue to find value in our product.

Amount of manual work have decreased with SimplerQMS. Especially document workflow is now less prone for errors. Email reminders and periodic tasks have helped to minimize calendar reminders.

Simpler team offers their full and easy-to-access support for the customers and have free of charge templates available. System integration was flexible and could be scaled to our small team.
