Companies that track requirements, create traceability matrices, and complete audits — especially for compliance — run into many problems using only Word and Excel to accomplish these tasks.

Most notably, manual processes leave employees vulnerable to making costly mistakes and wasting valuable time.

These outdated tracking procedures rob organizations of benefiting from four keys to productivity and efficiency:

  • Automation
  • Collaboration
  • Visibility
  • Traceability

However, modern application lifecycle management (ALM) tools solve all of these problems, linking and organizing information into a single source of truth that is instantly auditable.

Gerhard Krüger, senior consultant for Helix ALM, explains how the right software supports these fundamentals, generating improvements that save time and money.
