Quality Management is a Team Effort. Collaborate on More Than Text Documents

Maintaining and publishing documents requires the cooperation of multiple stakeholders. As your quality system matures, the number of documents and the types of documents being processed increases. The upkeep of these files becomes more time-intensive and needs additional support and buy-in from coordinators

Edit Request

Suggest document edits and create new versions of specific documents. Improve your inter-team communication and empower your people to enhance processes.

Approval Workflow

Make document approval feel like a breeze. Create your predefined document approval workflows and improve inter-team document collaboration.

Multiple File-Extensions

File management has changed over-time. Companies are no longer restricted to PDFs and desktop software. Cordage supports multiple files including GSuite, CAD, Word, Excel Sheets, DWG, Video, Audio and more. Over 140+ file types supported

Advanced Customization

Make it Truly Yours

All quality management systems and companies are different. Your software should adapt to your organizational requirements, visual appearance, and glossary without over-complicating the experience. Cordage enables companies to personalize their Document Control with custom labels, extended fields and brand alignment.

Extended Fields

Add new fields like dates, dropdowns, texts and numbers to your Document Management System. It is just like adding a new column on your spreadsheets.

Custom Fields

Change the document glossary according to subject, task, department or standard.

Brand Alignment

Cordage offers flexible packages and support to help you accelerate your path towards excellence. Our team works by your side and answers your questions. We work closely with you to deliver simple and powerful Quality Management.

Concierge Onboarding

We assign a specific staff member to assist and answer any questions you have about your new EQMS system. Onboarding isn’t limited to document uploads, it is about helping your organization succeed.

Partner Services

We help you find the quality consultant suited to your company stage, location and industry. We will focus on getting you up and running, while experts help you in the process of getting certified.

How long does it take to implement Cordage EQMS?

It depends on the number of documents, processes and the company size. While an SMB with little documentation can start in 2 business days, larger organizations may require up to 6 months to get up and running.

What type of support is included?

We offer a support center that provides email and in-app chat support. We answer all the questions posed by users, regardless of their role in the organization.

Do I need to buy onboarding services?

Yes. While we’ve worked hard to make Cordage as easy to use and understand as possible, it is a fairly big software solution. We assign a dedicated customer success agent to guide you through your setup, data migration, and training.

Do you offer any training?

We offer video materials and manuals free of cost. We are also able to offer remote and on-site training for an additional cost.

When will I be charged?

We adapt to your payment preferences. We provide a 15-day free demo for you to experience our EQMS product. After that, we will charge your credit card monthly or annually, depending on your preference. We offer special pricing for multi-annual deals.
