Plio removes the drudgery from managing
your quality improvement program
Plio automates time-consuming, haphazard processes that depend on spreadsheets & email.
Spreadsheets waste time and lead to errors and omissions
Most academic institutions start by using spreadsheets to manage their quality programs, using them to register nonconformities and and then to follow up corrective actions with email. This takes a lot of your time and self-discipline. It's easy for deadlines to get missed and for your team to lose focus on key quality issues.
Hiring a consultant is not a sufficient solution
Quality consultants do a great job in setting up your initial documentation and getting you through your first audit. However they can only allocate you a limited amount of their time. Once they've gone, Plio helps keep your team engaged and keep your initiative on track. Ask your quality consultant to put your documents and actions in Plio.
Not getting on top of quality will impact your reputation
If you don't operate a disciplined quality management system then root causes are not tackled and problems will recur. In education this can have severe consequences. Student satisfaction falls and staff turnover increases. This leads to a decline in the number and quality of applicants. This impacts both your reputation and your financial position. The time to take action is now.
Plio acts as your constant virtual assistant
It tracks follow-up actions, sends reminders so that you don't have to do all the chasing. Plio brings all your records into a single online database for easier access, reporting and audit.Sign up for 30 day free trial - no credit card required
Plio automates your quality program
Plio gives you out-of-the-box workflows for managing your nonconformities and risks, saving you time. These workflows include root cause analysis, assignment of corrective actions and verification of effectiveness. Plio coordinates your work items and monitors deadlines for team members.
Plio is surprisingly simple to use
Plio is a hands-on tool that your whole team can understand and use. It's been designed for educators and adminstrators who are not quality management specialists. Our customers like the fact that Plio keeps things simple and doesn't try to give you lots of complicated features that don't need.
Plio takes just 2 minutes to set up
Setting up a Plio account is quick because it's already pre-configured for academic organizations. Plio gives you a customizable structure where you can slot in your standards documents and risk lists. This simplifies and streamlines the setup process.
Affordable for any size of academic institution
Plio price plans start from $45 (£33) per team per month for 2 users, rising to $90 (£66) per month for 5 users and $250 (£195) per month for 20 users. There are no upfront costs or hidden extras and we don't tie you in to long term subscriptions.
Plio keeps your data safe and secure
Plio is built on top of a secure database. Data is encrypted at rest and in over the air, so your data is always secure. If you need to, you can export your data out of Plio to use in other applications, so there is no lock-in.
Plio is well supported
We provide high quality email-based support from people who understand quality management systems from an education perspective. We provide a rapid response time to all support requests together with comprehensive online documentation.
A free Skype 1:1 tutorial session is included in our subscription plans. We show you how to upload your existing quality documents and get the most out of the system.
“We tried several systems before someone recommended Plio to us. We had historically used spreadsheets and documents, which gradually became unwieldy, we also wanted to make our management system 'active' in the way it related to users specific roles.
We have found that Plio is really easy to use and is very flexible. We have particularly valued Plio's reliability and their openness to enhancement requests, they clearly want to make the system useful to the widest audience possible and the system is updated several times a year without us lifting a finger.
We particularly like the fact that Plio does what it says on the tin and does not try to give us lots of stuff we didn't want or need, which keeps the cost down to a sensible level. I would recommend Plio.”
