(BSI: Reston, VA) -- BSI Group America Inc. (BSI), a global provider of International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards-based assurance, compliance, and information solutions, has upgraded the quality management module in its Entropy Software solution. The enhancement provides organizations with tools to maximize business performance and improve bottom-line results by embedding good-practice quality guidelines into every facet of their quality management program. The enhancement provides improved transparency across a product’s life cycle, facilitating the early identification of gaps in the product realization process, and equipping organizations to improve business processes and drive business growth.

Some of the key benefits of Entropy Software and the quality management module include:
• Dynamic system that follows product life cycle and realization, tracking compliance to source
• Instant executive visibility on enterprisewide compliance to quality measurements
• Focused reports using traffic-light, real-time performance dashboards
• Ability to drive quality improvements through the supply chain
• Consistency of data across business sites, and comparability of internal and external assessments

The latest release presents features and improved functionality to better support risk and compliance needs and provide assurance related to quality management systems. BSI’s Entropy Software offers built-in ISO 9001-standard and self-assessment tools, further ensuring that compliance parameters are readily available. Between the extensive language capability and the exhaustive library of reports and charts, Entropy Software provides unparalleled access to an improved quality of data.

“This latest release solidifies Entropy as a leading innovator in developing quality management software,” says Bill McMoil, senior vice president of [good governance, risk, and compliance] GRC solutions with BSI. “Entropy’s quality management system helps enterprises—large and small—streamline and automate their processes for increased efficiency, improved risk management, and enhanced compliance to ISO standards, regulations, internal policies, and [customer service level agreements] SLAs. The end result is that quality is optimized, compliance ensured, and costs reduced for companies across a wide range of industries.”

Entropy Software enables organizations to become more agile by empowering them with the information that they need to deliver a superior level of quality in their products, streamline operations, and protect brand value and reputation.
