Our Verdict…

We like Qualcy’s modular structure, customizable user permissions, and transparent pricing model. It publicly publishes pricing details, unlike most QMS. Qualcy starts at $799 a month with a free 30-day trial.

However, it’s not for companies needing strong in-app guidance or support in the natural resource sector. In addition, users should prepare to invest time upfront in setting up user roles and establishing initial training and risk management plans within the system.

Who Uses Qualcy eQMS?

We found Qualcy well-suited for organizations with 5 to 500 users, but it can support up to 1,000. It’s the next logical step for users transitioning from manual or semi-digital methods to a cloud-based system. The QMS operates best in the medical device, pharmaceutical, and biomedical sectors. Qualcy offers on-premises and cloud-based deployment secured and backed up on the Amazon AWS platform.

What Features Are Missing?

  • Simple setup: Qualcy Systems work closely with companies to implement their QMS system. However, some customer reviews note that the initial setup process can be extensive, particularly when configuring user permissions and access controls. Additionally, learning to work with risk management templates and setting up the document management section consume considerable time.
  • In-app guidance: On the usability front, users have expressed that, at times, the functionality of specific sections within modules is not immediately clear. This is compounded by the absence of a general help menu with quick answers to queries about the software’s basic mechanics.

Pricing Plans

Qualcy operates on a monthly subscription model, where the fee is based on the number of admin users. Admin users are granted full access and control within the system. In contrast, basic users have restricted permissions and are priced differently, with fees ranging between $21 and $39 per month, depending on the total number of users in the account.

For most companies, pricing starts at around $799/month. The minimum requirement for each plan is five users for a $495 subtotal, plus the $299 monthly backup and maintenance support fee.

Who uses Qualcy eQMS?

Qualcy customers include biotech companies like Activa Biotech, Bioquest, Inc., Bioserv Corporation, Innovation Cell Technologies, and Pacific Biosystems Inc. The QMS software is best suited for small to medium-sized enterprises that must comply with specific regulations like ISO.

How is eQMS different from QMS?

QMS is a broad term referring to the procedures and policies utilized by an organization to meet product and service quality standards. It can take the form of documented manuals and paper-based records. eQMS refers to a digitized system managed through software, making it more efficient and compliant with regulatory requirements.

In our evaluation, Qualcy eQMS emerged as an adaptable solution catering primarily to medical device manufacturers, engineering firms, and professionals within the biomedical industry. Prospective users can gauge the software’s efficacy through a 30-day free trial. Furthermore, the platform offers flexibility, allowing customers to use individual modules that cater to specific needs or opt for the comprehensive system. Moreover, the platform takes data security seriously, employing high-grade safeguards to protect sensitive information.

We recommend potential users weigh Qualcy’s robust features against the initial setup time and potential learning curve. Companies must select the Platinum subscription tier for advanced implementation and data migration support. Additionally, organizations should prepare to allocate time to devise initial training schedules, configure user roles, and establish risk management protocols.

In our assessment, we think Qualcy is a great fit for small to mid-level biomedical companies looking to tighten their security and maintain ISO 13485 standards. Its modular nature, user-friendly interface, and robust features make it an asset for organizations keen on optimizing their quality management efforts.

User Reviews of Qualcy eQMS

Submitted on June 13th, 2023 by Damek Rehl

Qualcy is great for doc control, equiptment management (including calibration and PM reminders), audit, CAPA, and NC management. it is slim, so a great fit for a company that moves quickly.

The Good…

Qualcy is a surprisingly customizable tool for eQMS management. the support team is very responsive when you have questions and the tool can support paperless quality records without a huge effort to develop the system.

The Bad…

there is not an obvious support path other than contacting the qualcy team. ideally there would be more documentation on each module.

Submitted on July 27th, 2021 by Marie Becker

Qualcy eQMS is user friendly, easy to find the documents and records. The change control feature has been very helpful for us. The Training Management module is integrated with change control, this automatically releases the training assignments, when documents are changed. This has been a big difference, previously we used to spend lot of time on managing the training records. The other modules including CAPA, NC Management and Risk Management are integrated, which makes it easier to link the documents and QMS records.

The Good…

The simplicity and user interface is a big plus. The advanced notifications for tasks and approvals has been useful. The Qualcy team provides excellent support, we are surprised to find that they have team members who have GMP experience, that makes a big difference. They understand the issues and provide feedbacks that are aligned with our GMP/QSR expectations.

The Bad…

The software comes with nice reports, but they are not easy to drill down. Though same data can be obtained through Excel downloads. It takes more steps to get the same data.
