The Role of an Interim Q-Pulse Administration Service
In order to get the most from Q-Pulse Quality Management System, it is important to ensure the software is well administered, kept up-to-date and that users have the necessary support to use the system correctly on a daily basis. To achieve this, an experienced Administrator is vital, but sometimes due to leave, reallocations, or unforeseen events, an Administrator may not be available.
