Why do I need software to manage my Quality Management? 
In order to avoid potential setbacks in completing units, our customers have made it a top priority to construct and uphold high-quality homes that meet strict regulatory standards.   When information is kept in plot books or disparate systems, information can become siloed causing a lack of visibility across the business. As a result, many have turned to software solutions to effectively manage this process. 
How do I know your templates meet regulatory requirements such as Part L? 
Our templates have been designed alongside some of our Housebuilder clients such as Taylor Wimpey and have been “battle tested” with members of the SAP Assessor community.
How does Zutec Quality Management benefit my business? 
We understand the specific challenges and regulatory landscape in house building, helping you make decisions around how to optimise your platform setup.   Zutec is a fully integrated cloud and field application which gives you the future potential to expand the solution into Document Management, Handover Management and Asset Management within a single environment.   This helps to maximise your investment as it reduces the number of software platforms you need for these processes to just one, making us an ideal partner over the long term as you move forward with your digitisation journey.
