CDA | Controlled Document Area

More control over your quality documents within your company?

As a company, there are often a lot of quality documents circulating which can cause damage to your business if not checked & updated in a consistent and correct manner.

Therefore, challenges such as working with the latest version of a file, categorizing by department, document numbering that is automatic and unique and creating an efficient approval process are often encountered.
Working with a CDA module provides a solution to these issues

Why CDA?

  • Central location for all quality documents
  • Automated and efficient approval process
  • Document numbering based on company structure

Base Products.

Start your digital transformation.

Sonical has been active in digitizing, automating and optimizing business processes for over a decade. This for both scale-ups and listed companies. Our experience shows that companies often face the same issues and challenges. Our Base Products have automated some of these business processes. This includes both the automations of the basic process and all the technologies needed to support the process from A to Z.

By making the best use of standard Microsoft Technologies, the process can be easily adapted to the specific needs of the client. In essence, we can say that 80% is in the basics and 20% needs to be adapted to the client’s needs.

By specifying which tasks and deliverables are included, the project scope of the Base Product to be delivered is clear to the stakeholders involved, senior management and team members.
