Plio removes the drudgery from managing
a quality improvement program
Plio automates time-consuming, haphazard processes that depend on spreadsheets & email.
Spreadsheets waste time and lead to errors and omissions
Most smaller software businesses that operate a quality management program start by using spreadsheets. They use these to register nonconformities and and then to follow up corrective and preventative actions via email. This takes a lot of time and self-discipline. It's easy for deadlines to get missed and for your team to lose focus on key quality issues.
Hiring a consultant is not a sufficient solution
Quality consultants do a great job in setting up your initial documentation and getting you through your first audit. However they can only allocate you a limited amount of their time. Once they've gone Plio helps keep your team engaged and keeps your initiative on track. Ask your quality consultant to put your documents and actions in Plio.
Not getting on top of quality will hit your bottom line
If you don't operate a disciplined quality management system then root causes are not tackled and problems will recur. In software and SaaS businesses this can cost you a lot of money. Critical bugs and service downtime directly impact the customer. Maintaining your product gets more and more difficult (and expensive). Customers start to lose confidence. The time to take action is now.
Plio acts as your constant virtual assistant
It tracks follow-up actions, sends reminders so that you don't have to do all the chasing. Plio brings all your records into a single online database for easier access, reporting and audit.Sign up for 30 day free trial. No credit card required
Plio automates your quality program
Plio gives you out-of-the-box workflows for managing your nonconformities and risks, saving you time. These workflows include root cause analysis, assignment of corrective actions and verification of effectiveness. Plio coordinates your work items and monitors deadlines for team members.
Plio is surprisingly simple to use
Plio is a hands-on tool that your whole team can understand and use. It's been designed for front line managers and team leaders who are not quality management specialists. Our customers like the fact that Plio keeps things simple and doesn't try to give you lots of complicated features that don't need.
Plio takes just 2 minutes to set up
Setting up a Plio account is quick because it's already pre-configured for software and SaaS firms. Plio gives you a software industry-customized structure where you can slot in your standards documents and risk lists. This simplifies and streamlines the setup process.
Affordable for any size software or SaaS business
Plio price plans start from $25 (£20) per team per month for 2 users, rising to $49 (£39) per month for 5 users and $149 (£119) per month for 20 users. There are no upfront costs or hidden extras and we don't tie you in to long term subscriptions.
Plio keeps your data safe and secure
Plio is built on top of a secure database. Data is encrypted at rest and in over the air, so your data is always secure. If you need to, you can export your data out of Plio to use in other applications, so there is no lock-in.
