Today, with the rapid growth in business, many manufacturing firms are looking beyond the adage of employing traditional, on-premise, legacy software that give no visibility in core areas like supply chain, quality and compliance. Besides, with the rising customer demands and business expectations, manufacturing companies cannot risk having infrastructure and data disruptions causing supply chain failures. Founded in 2013, ComplianceQuest reenergizes the industry with a modern approach to the traditional EQMS solution. ComplianceQuest offers an Enterprise Quality Management System that is built and run on the modern cloud Salesforce® platform to aid manufacturing companies to redefine quality and compliance facets of supply chain operations. The company offers unmatched compliance and other benefits with remarkable efficiency. Hence, to have a brief idea about the platform and its vision Insights Success conducted a worth read interview with the ComplianceQuest’s CTO and EVP of Software Engineering, Atulya Risal.
Below are the highlights of the interview between Insights Success and Atulya Risal:

Where does ComplianceQuest see itself in the long run and what are its future goals?
ComplianceQuest’s journey is steadfast in its belief of Salesforce platform and ecosystem as a strong foundation for continuing to develop and deliver future innovative solutions and seeing rapid growth globally. Salesforce itself is also becoming a more standard platform within many companies and hence IT is looking at other Salesforce apps available to extend the value of their investment and reduce overall IT footprint. This modern cloud experience means a reduction in management of modular licenses and versions and simplifies IT issues surrounding software management. Using the cloud, customers will always have the most updated version of the software platform. In addition, since the business application platform is continuously innovated and managed by Salesforce, it allows ComplianceQuest to drive more innovation into its own solutions. Because of the ease of development, ComplianceQuest can quickly create fully working prototypes, new features or customer specific capabilities to address new market or customer requirements and turn them into final production solutions.
With continued passion and dedication on this journey, ComplianceQuest is well on its way to become a market and competitive disruption.
Testimonials Proving Excellence
“Our experience with implementing Compliance Quest @ Flipkart has been nothing short of a wonder. As the company project lead, I have had the privilege and hands on experience in Designing the System Architecture, Configure and Deploy it across the organization and the entire experience has been nothing short of GREAT…
While wearing the hat of System Admin, the most significant feature that I have experienced is the platform’s capability to design, configure/customize and deploy any workflow / module from the front end itself i.e. NO CODING REQUIRED at all.
The tool is so simple to use that we hardly reached out to CQ Support for any subsequent customizations and all Enhancements / Add-On’s were implemented In-House and enabled us to de-skill the System Admin role and assign it to people with good command on spreadsheet applications like MS Excel.
A true asset for the organization! 3 Cheers for team Compliance Quest”. – Satish Venkataraman, Manager Quality, Flipkart
“If you need an entire QMS in a Centralized Cloud-Based, 100% Salesforce Supported Platform, then go for COMPLIANCE QUEST (CQ), you will be rest assured that YOU MADE THE RIGHT DECISION FOR LIFE!” –Ron Shah, Director of Quality Assurance, Ocean Optics
