CAQ – Information system for quality management support

Q-LanYs

The Q-LanYs information system is based on our extensive experience in quality management. It is constantly being developed and refined. The Q-LanYs IS is regularly updated to include new features and functions to meet the customer’s needs and also to reflect updates and new versions of standards relating to quality management systems.



NEWS about the CAQ version of the Q-LanYs information system

Modified for all modules:

  • Complete compatibility with OS WIN XP, WIN VISTA, WIN 7, WIN 8
  • Can log into system under SQL and WINDOWS authorisation systems
  • Everything converted to UNICODE. I.e. any character sets can be used in a single text. (E.g. Czech, German, Korean Cyrillic characters, etc.
  • Development history of individual modules
