To us, quality isn't just a department, it is a way of doing business. Practicing common quality concepts actually helps shape the way a company can do business and molds its processes. So, more often than not it isn't just the quality departments responsibility. It's a common myth that only the quality department should worry about the quality of products or services when in reality it takes everyone from every department to ensure high-level quality throughout the entire process. This helps prevent unnecessary headaches, delays, and cost related to faulty products going out the door or all over low quality. Moreover, quality doesn't only have an internal impact. It sets a company apart from the competition and it shows customers commitment to provide them the best product and service. Customers in the biopharm industry set high expectations and quality helps not just meet them, but exceed them. They also recognize great quality when they see it and tend to be loyal to suppliers whose quality systems are not only robust but easy to work with!
