User Friendly Contact Management Software
Contact Manager Software
The beauty of TLM is that we recognize the solutions you need today are going to have to play nicely with the solutions you might already have in place, or will be forced to purchase in the future. The most common examples of this real world challenge are ERP data, Accounting, and CRM data.
Yet almost all of your quality system work flows are likely to need access to other databases and TLM provides a foundation for building an integrated digital landscape. This integration with your existing or future systems can leverage the data you already have in categories where you might be forced to incorporate software that can address your unique business needs.
TLM Contact Manager Software helps utilize customer and vendor data and supports other work flows such as vendor approval, sales orders, as well as customer feedback and equipment calibration.
- Use TLM Connection Manager to import existing CRM data to support QMS workflows.
- Create Invoices.
- Maintain customer and vendor contact data.
- Manage vendor approval and qualification program.
- Record contact events with customers or vendors.
- Robust Search Features.
Contact Manager Software
The Best of Both Worlds – Robust Features yet Simple and User Friendly.
Due to the ability to integrate with all the other TLM modules, the TLM Contact Manager module can be integrated with other sales funnel based CRM systems for the vendors, customers, and other contacts that need to be related to other modules, or who make it through the sales funnel of other systems.
- Establish an Action Plan for a given company that shows up on the assigned person’s dashboard when due.

It also serves to create the foundation of your company’s digital landscape which saves you as much as possible from purchasing disconnected stand alone software, and provides the technical support for integrating other information systems when necessary.
All TLM software modules are rolled up to a user specific dashboard and summaries of each user's dashboard can be automatically emailed to ensure QMS activities are scheduled and prioritized accordingly.
In addition, the TLM dashboard helps users navigate to where tasks are performed, making it easy for new users to adopt the software without having to pay for extra training before being able to put TLM software to work for your company.
TLM Contact Manager software provides a much needed foundation of customer and vendor contact data in support of almost every other TLM module.
This might require integration with other CRM solutions that can meet other requirements of the overall sales funnel so that once prospects turn into customers, or are qualified into deeper levels of the sales funnel, they can be imported into the TLM Contact Manager module for needed links to other TLM records.
- Customers: You will need customer data in TLM in order to link to Customer Feedback, Survey, Sales Orders, and Work Orders for example.
- Vendors: You will need vendor data in TLM in order to link to Corrective Actions, Rejected Materials, Inspections, Purchase Orders, and Deviations for example.
Integration with SalesForce, HubSpot, and other online CRM applications is available as a development project so that your entire sales funnel can be crafted to insert the appropriate data at the appropriate levels into TLM when needed.
Your management team can create impressive organizational growth by harnessing this basic element of the human experience and the TLM Contact Manager Software module is one of the key tools for their success in this effort.
By organizing key aspects of how work is done, managers can use the contact manager module to empower employees to participate in finding opportunities for improvement and customer satisfaction while maintaining approval control to ensure additional risks aren’t introduced.
TLM Contact Manager Software ensures these efforts are well organized, linked to all other aspects of the QMS that might be related, and assigned to ensure employees who rise to the occasion can be recognized accordingly.
Historically the decision to implement ISO was driven by the consequences of NOT being ISO certified when competitors were using ISO certification to win new business from customers who needed confidence in their supplier’s ability to consistently meet requirements.
This resulted in a lot of paper based systems set up by various “consultants” that advocated vague procedures that could technically meet the requirements of the ISO standard, but in reality did very little to improve quality or any other aspect of the business.
Times have changed, and the introduction of QMS software allowed organizations to take a different approach to their quality system and instead of wasting tons of time and money for little benefit, they are using their QMS to improve all aspects of the business.
At least the companies who could afford the high cost of most QMS software.
The whole point of ISO based quality standards is to address the minimum risks across every aspect of the business that could have consequences to customer satisfaction. Unfortunately, by calling them “quality” standards, a misperception developed over the years that caused managers to think of quality as something the “quality department” was responsible for.
Total Lean Management (TLM) Software corrects this misperception by acting as an integrated management tool not only for compliance, but as the framework for how a company evolves. Audit management software can be a vital component of this evolution, provided it is integrated with all the other aspects of the business to make auditing easier, faster, and more insightful.
There is Only One Type of Quality Management System
Over the last 20 years TLM has discovered a very basic truth when it comes to information management systems such as your eQMS, no two companies have the exact same needs.
In fact, the two biggest risks in the software selection process is either selecting software that is not flexible enough to manage information that is unique, and important to your workflow, thus forcing work arounds, or other concessions that effectively add waste to your business.
The other mistake is getting stuck with comprehensive, but inflexible systems due to their web based cloud hosting design, which forces a one size fits all approach to meeting customer needs.
And while one size might fit some, it might not fit all your needs when in the long run your understanding of those needs evolves and improves.
Total Lean Management Software, by definition, recognizes this fact, and addresses it through a dual technology, upstream / downstream user landscape approach to meeting the needs of both your upstream and downstream user types. This is combined with our tiered approach to addressing newly discovered customer needs, making sure the software works in alignment with your business systems the day after your purchase, and for all the years ahead.
These measures include:
Allows you to adapt the software to your company’s terminology.
Allows you to choose which features are applied to your process.
Incorporating employee feedback into the continuous improvement cycle creates a synergistic effect on moral, engagement, and productivity.
This capability provides insurance that your system will never leave you stuck after discovering unknown needs after implementation.
By implementing and combining modules in way that might be unique to your business or work flows.
Evolution is a team effort, and the whole team behind TLM enjoys helping companies comply with regulations, manage risk, continuously improve, and maintain a steady growth rate.
This unique TLM feature allows you to link individual screens in TLM to your own controlled procedures or work instructions for that area of the software (if needed).
