No more clipboards – IFS App simplifies your internal audit

It is the year 2018 and the digital age is widespread in all areas of life. Meanwhile, quality managers still perform their internal audits with pen, clipboard and camera? Not with IFS. IFS wants to contribute to an easy daily procedure – and forward digitalization. That's why the app "IFS Audit Manager" was developed.

The app IFS Audit Manager pushes forward digitalization – and contributes to an easy daily procedure in your business.

With the app, you can take photos from findings and send them to collegues or to your own mail adress. In addition, IFS users have the possibility to link the tasks and findings to the relevant requirements with just one touch, so photos and evaluations can be stored directly along with individual up-to-date requirements. To improve continuously, the app provides you with a corrective action tool.

The app runs on smartphones and tablets and provides, next to the included IFS checklist, various means of support during the audit. A compact collection of auditor questions, a glossary, guidelines and additional references on your device will help you as an internal auditor to perform audits. 

Yes, it is true: It is in the best interest of the IFS that companies are well prepared for the IFS auditor to come – and the app helps with that.
