In 1989, China introduced massive privatization. A short time later, China continued its transformation and joined the WTO. These changes brought China onto the world manufacturing stage and allowed Chinese businesses to trade in the global market.

The companies that moved production to China often brought with them old-fashioned methods of monitoring the quality of the products they made. These methods often cause bigger problems than they solve. Consider these typical quality control problems caused by outdated, pen and paper types of processes:

  • Lost and inefficient communication
  • Non-standardized inspection reports that are difficult to analyze
  • Inefficient, ineffective, and inaccurate inspections
  • Reporting delays
  • Reactive approaches to product defects that don’t initiate correction
  • Laborious data collection

Traditional quality control increases the risk of unexpected defects and ineffective audits despite a company’s best efforts. New approaches to processes can remove that risk, however.

In the early 2000s, new technology created a shift from quality control to quality assurance. That technology has continued to transform the quality control industry. Today we find ourselves in an age of empowerment and accountability. Brands and retailers now use digitized supply chains to collaborate productively with their production partners to deliver continuous growth and improvement.

The Benefits of Digitizing Quality Control

Adopting a digital quality control solution benefits all stakeholders in a company's supply chain, from brands and retailers to vendors and factories.

For Brands and Retailers

With digital quality control companies can capture data and validate whether that data is accurate and reliable in real-time. A quality manager can monitor an inspector's work and receive a report immediately after the inspection.

This real-time quality control creates a high level of efficiency for supply chains. The added efficiency frees time and resources to enable companies to devote resources in other areas of their operations.

With traditional quality control, it took significant time and resources to collect and analyze supply chain data. With modern digital systems, brands and retailers can analyze supply chains in real-time, get immediate results from inspections, and implement corrective actions in the event of failures.

This increase in efficiency and transparency from digital quality assurance platforms like QIMAone gives brands and retailers a significant competitive advantage.

For Vendors and Factories

Rather than filling out quality control forms with pencil on paper, QIMAone makes QC forms standardized and simple. Gone are the days of lost paperwork and bad penmanship. The software makes decision-making easy by relaying data back to management. Businesses can now spend more time focusing on production and making the daily decisions that make customers happier.  

Vendors and factories that adopt a digital quality assurance platform can put clients at ease with real-time data on quality control and production issues. This real-time data allows factories to collaborate with clients to find solutions quickly and efficiently.
