Action Plan Software

Effectively managing Corrective and Preventive Action (CAPA) plans helps companies mitigate risks, improve performance and stay compliant. Global action plan software must be deployed in order to successfully respond to adverse events that threaten a company’s operations.

Organizations continuously pursue and manage simultaneous objectives (e.g. incident management, environmental compliance, and risk control measures) that require proactive and reactive tasks. These challenging tasks occur both at the corporate level and at the level of individual entities, and can be unique or repetitive in nature. This also means that companies must be capable of processing large amounts of data and action items in order to effectively manage performance, meet targets, report on progress and achieve regulatory compliance.

With the Enablon Action Plan Software, companies can effectively create action plans, track completion, manage reminders, ensure follow-up and create reports.

The Enablon Action Plan Software solution allows companies to define independent action plans and tasks or to centralize all action plans and tasks triggered from various applications within the Enablon platform.
