It collects, keeps, and processes all necessary data and documentation on the process and makes it available to different departments of the company that work together on the certification process, thus enabling seamless cross-departmental collaboration.

  • Product samples
  • Approvals

Moreover, you need to monitor them all: time employee certification process demands attention to each participant to the full extent.
