A Quantum Leap in Compliance and Quality
Today, thousands of compliance and quality auditors are capturing data across the world - but keeping it in isolated islands of spreadsheets or word documents.
QLBS was founded in New Zealand in 2002, motivated by the recognition that if you could connect these islands you would create a new intelligent assessment world, where you see what is happening across the community.
This requires going to the cloud where the same assessments can be used by everyone, and all responses can be collected in a database for long-term analysis of progress.
QuantumLeap is a SAAS platform built in the Microsoft.net development environment on a Microsoft SQL Server database. It has a number of important architectural design criteria:
Our leading-edge platform provides portals into your community across all the schemes that are important to you; both horizontally, across all growers, and vertically, up and down the supply chain.
The database automatically moves data into OLAP cubes enabling deep analysis across the data using multi-dimensional analysis and presentation in dashboards. These can be used in web designs, presentations, and documents as ‘live’ views into the data.
It is designed for open data access: Data can flow from and to CRM or Enterprise systems. Data can flow to third party dashboards and BI tools for analysis.
It enables online and offline auditing so that auditors can operate on farms where there is no internet coverage.
Remote auditing enabled through the digital video, audio and image functionality is integrated into the platform It offers dual accessibility; allowing producers and auditors to view and navigate the audit at the same time.
The Assessment Configurator designed to build monitor and manage questions and scoring systems including weighting, parent-and-child dependencies and cross-linking from one scheme to another.
The QuantumLeap platform is hosted on mirrored servers behind secure firewalls. Hosting can be set up wherever the client wants.
The Assessment Manager enables set-up and access to authorities and the management of the whole assessment teams.

The Digital Traveller has an attitude that seeks out and demands modern IT systems that enable knowledge harvesting, analysis, and reporting in ways that were not previously possible.
Auditing organisations that have strategically planned and implemented the uptake of digital auditing tools are digital travellers who have become knowledge leaders. And, the introduction of new digital knowledge has enabled auditors to become knowledge workers, able to add significant value.
A strategic approach to planning investments in data and knowledge, by investing in training and organisational opportunities from the top of the organisation to the bottom, results in organisational future proofing.
