In short, the Kianda platform takes a modern approach to business process automation. Most noteworthy, it is a true NO-CODE platform. Therefore, users without technical knowledge can easily build business apps and workflows.
In this webinar series, you will learn how to turn inspections into an easy digital process.
So, organisations that require frequent inspections, need checklists that contain large amounts of data. However, that data is often unreliably, on paper documents.
To be more clear, traditional methods used to carry out inspections generally consist of papers, scanned documents, signatures, Excel sheets and so on… But, these aren’t exactly efficient ways to record data or more importantly, to store it.
Kianda offers a no-code platform that allows you to create digital inspection checklists and workflows. In short, it organizes and stores data, generates documents and captures signatures on the go, digitally.
Adopting new technologies that can automate a business process will benefit industries that conduct frequent inspections such as construction, engineering, manufacturing and others.
So, it’s time to transform your inspections into a more efficient process.
Above all, you will save time, reduce costs and eliminate paper.
In other words, a digital process will allow you to carry out a site inspection more rapidly than a manual one. In addition, you can say good bye to paper documents and hello to more efficient ways of recording and storing data and information.
We hosted this webinar to show you how to turn inspections into an easy digital process using Kianda platform. During the webinar, Osvaldo demonstrates how to use a site inspection app, along with the advantages.

Osvaldo is the CEO of Kianda Technologies with almost two decades of experience in the IT industry has developed many successful enterprise solutions across a broad range of technologies. He is the subject matter expert in digital workplace collaboration solutions.
Kianda is a no-code business process automation and workflow software. It makes it easy for companies to automate complex business processes connecting people and existing company systems.
Kiandais headquartered in Dublin, Ireland, is being used by businesses across the globe. It is helping users to digitally transform core business processes improving compliance and enabling faster decision making, and higher productivity.
Quality management systems are widely used to ensure compliance. A quality management system is a set of integrated business processes. To deliver quality in the production process, organisations use integrated business processes.
A viable QMS (Quality Management System) should reflect the organisations’ vision, goals and objectives.
Why do quality leaders seek a viable QMS to ensure compliance?
Manager are pressured to implement quality management processes. Reason being, are the following:
1- Compliance with existing laws, 2- Compliance with standards of production, and 3- Developing a quality conscious culture.
Today, leaders use technology and systems to improve data analysis. They use it to make informed decisions. In doing so, ensuring quality in the production process.
Furthermore, the organisation workforce strive now more than ever, to transform goals and objectives into resources and policies. Consequently, the policies help every employee to follow standard operating procedures.
Above all, the quality management standard ISO 9001, advocates for strong leadership that impacts a quality-driven culture.
6 core elements to consider to improve quality management
Alignment of people, financial resources, and technology is a good combination to ensure that quality is maintained in production life-cycle.
Meanwhile, here are 6 core elements that you should consider to improve quality management:
1- Data Managementis a technique to maintain quality.
Presence of real time data can go a long way. This can earn a company enormous profit. Further, modern organizations ensure compliance using quality management systems to manage data.
Moreover, long-term data management techniques can predict high profitability, good customer relations, efficiencies and consistency in product quality.
Certainly, to ensure there is effective quality control, you must hunt data to implement.
With the help of a quality management software, you can address data collection, disposal methods, data management and analysis.
2- Achieving customer satisfaction with product quality
The primary goal of QMS is to ensure that quality objectives are met. The process involves describing product quality and setting up measuring tools.
Consequently, organisations should try to establish monitoring systems that can show if customer satisfaction is achieved.
3- Establishing a customer-mindful culture
Quality objectives are a tested and satisfied requirement of QMS. They are laid down to define strategic goals that will help achieve quality goals. In other words, objectives address the link between customer expectation and specific measurable goals.
So, quality leaders should lead employees in establishing a customer-mindful culture. Therefore, to deliver quality goods and services, a company should address gaps such as staff training requirements, inadequate resources and use of over-aged data.
4- Continuous improvement of quality controls across departments
An organisation should improve its data and its production methods. As a result, this will help to learn current trends and incorporate them into its production method.
To maintain a culture of quality, you should lead by being responsible, respecting the set quality standards and being accountable.
To design successful organisation processes, you should define a culture of clear documentation and improve quality controls across departments, for instance.
5- Communication and sharing of knowledge for the success of QMS
Reliable record keeping is essential for the success of QMS.
A quality-driven organisation ensures evidence-based data and a clear channel of communication.
To retain all supporting evidence, an organisation should look for digital quality management solutions. As a result, this will maintain transparent record keeping.
6- Defining organisational structure
A quality management system can ensure compliance by defining hierarchical order in an organisation. By doing so, the system should show what every employee is expected to do.
Automating Your QMS
All businesses are starting to adopt technology in various processes, more and more. To compete fairly, you should shun away from the error-prone and cumbersome systems as these can increase risks and cost you money.
Using papers or Excel sheets to store your data can complicated and prone to errors. Not to mention, it is also expensive to maintain in the long run.
Why should you as well endorse digital QMS?
Organisations are looking to save costs and time by adopting quality management software. They simplify tasks. As a result, they save resources that can be used in other areas.
When looking for a viable digital system, you should focus on something that addresses your organisation’s business needs.
The system should be flexible, so that users can create digital processes via forms, workflows, fields, business rules and reports. The users should easily mould and shape it to fit business processes. By doing so, the organisation can use it to the best of their ability.
Here are several benefits your organisation will bring in from a digital QMS:
Technologies now allow you to move your business to cloud. In other words, this enables an organisation to store data in the cloud. Above all, it is time efficient and cost-effective.
Compliance to quality standards is necessary for every organisation. Therefore, companies should put some form of a system in place. In this way, it will help them manage and track quality.
With a cloud-based solution, companies can verify that all processes are accessible to everyone. Also, that they comply to industrial standards by instinct.
Continuous Employee Training
Human resource is the most vibrant resource in an organisation. Therefore, for consistency in quality, employees must for example, be trained continuously to adapt to changes in the market.
Once they are trained, the next big thing is motivating them to meet deadlines. Policies and procedures constantly change. It is wise to maintain highly trained staff who efficiently complete their tasks.
Improved Risk Management
With real time data, it is easier to identify potential threats that can affect your organisation. Using a digital process management system as such, managers can give tasks to employees and monitor their progress in respect to the timing.
Customer feedback is wisely used in making future business decisions.
When complaints emerge, notifications are sent to respective employees to inform them to take corrective action. Taking the best approach to risk assessment can help determine critical events from non-critical events. In this regard, prioritizing critical.
Lack of organised data can make it daunting to account for primary activities. Above all, organisations receive loads of information every day. This is challenging to analyse manually. With the help of a digital quality system, one can report on any department within the system and thanks to that, make more meaningful information.
Furthermore, a digital QMS gives you all the features needed to abandon stressful and tedious manual tasks. All your documents are stored safely and ready when you are.
To conclude, a cloud-based system can be used as your digital QMS. Allowing you to create workflow apps and better quality management processes.

Kianda at Ireland eGovernment Awards and Summit 2019
Our CEO Osvaldo Sousa presenting Kianda at the Ireland eGovernment Awards. Certainly, it was a pleasure to introduce the Kianda platform to an audience of government leaders in digital services. This took place on 11 September 2019 in City Hall, Dublin.
“It was fantastic to have the opportunity for us to present Kianda to such a prestigious audience. And talk about how we help organisations to accelerate and simplify their digital journeys with our innovative process automation platform Kianda.” says Osvaldo.
Benefits for public sectors
During, Osvaldo demonstrated use of the Kianda platform, at the Ireland eGovernment Awards giving clear examples of purpose.
Process automation software is a growing platform that can benefit many industries. For instance, the public sector is one that frequently carries out processes that can be easily simplified.
To clarify the simplicity, paper can be eliminated, costs can be reduced and time can be saved.
As a result, less paper means less waste and more organization. Secondly, reducing costs converts into more finances for other business aspects. Finally, more time results in dedicated effort to neglected tasks.
“Often use case of our platform with public sector is online application forms or public queries. These require some sort of background process to get resolved after they are submitted.”
Sometimes, there are issues though. For example, the documents can get lost or forgotten, when travelling from A to B. Consequently, slowing down processes.
Osvaldo states to the audience at the Ireland eGoverment Awards and Summit:
“What Kianda does is that, it transforms these interactions to an entirely digital and traceable process from the beginning until the end. Not just the first online form. This brings huge savings and eliminates inefficiencies for organisations.“

Per Diem means Per Day. Also, referred as daily allowance.
It is a particular measure of money an organisation provides for an individual. To be more clear, it is frequently a representative of the organisation.
It covers everyday costs when travelling for work. A per diem can incorporate part, or the majority of the costs acquired. And most companies pay the government rate, which is based on the cost of living in the location being visited.
In aviation, it is usually available to a pilot, flight attendant, crew member or office staff who are travelling for business. Specifically, it is the reimbursement for his or her meals and incidental expenses. And, every airline pays differently per diem rates.
One method is employees request the actual cost of meals, lodging, and incidental travel costs may be deducted. That is, subject to certain limitations, providing the invoices and receipts.
On the other hand, there is the allowance method. In short, an employee is only required to prove where they were, and that they were travelling as a requirement of their work. Generally, in the aviation industry, most employees and independent contractors use the allowance method.
How to optimise per diem management
Kianda Forms allow users to manage per diem, all in a single platform. With an automated workflow, flight personnel or office staff can easily make per diem requests. And they can submit their requests, before or after they travel.
This automated process empowers personnel to do their per diem calculations and request rapidly. It is presented as a simple online form where employees can consult what is available to them.
Kianda platform provides capabilities for users to work offline. That is to say, it is highly suitable for industries that involve a lot of remote working, in remote areas.
As employees in the aviation industry frequently fly on long-haul flights, remote access is essential.
With Kianda, they can submit per diem requests, even when they are off-line during a flight.
Employees can easily reach the information they need and submit their requests. More importantly, they can do so without any delays or unnecessary email communications.
Information related to the submissions can be stored in the company’s existing data systems. Moreover, to ensure regulations and compliance, all information can be managed and tracked efficiently.

Additionally, how it can bring in-house control to organisations. In particular, over their IT solutions and help them bring efficiency in their operations.
“There is some debate as to whether Albert Einstein actually defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. But, the sentiment certainly struck a chord with tech entrepreneur and software developer Osvaldo Sousa. They spent 17 years pounding the same ground building similar automated process solutions for different companies.
In July 2016 Sousa and his wife, Derya, (an IT consultant), decided to pool their skills and develop a solution. One that consigned this constant reinvention to history. They set up business process management and automation company Kianda. And, they have spent the last two years developing a cloud-based platform that enables users to easily build forms and workflows to streamline complex business operations.”
Kianda is a true no-code platform that aims to put business users in the driving seat of process automation. Moreover, digitalising business processes rewards organisations with huge advantages.
