We evaluated all 3 companies at the same time when we were "shopping" for an electronic quality management system solution. We spoke with other users about their experiences and received extremely positive feedback from 2 current Greenlight Guru clients. The clients highlighted …
Chose Greenlight Guru
Qualio did not appear to be as robust a solution as Greenlight Guru, and in particular, did not have as strong of design control and risk management capabilities for medical devices. MasterControl was too involved and expensive, and the extra benefits that MasterControl …
Chose Greenlight Guru
If you are looking for a medical device specific eQMS that you do not need to customize, Greenlight Guru is for you. With most of the other eQMS solutions out there, they are not industry specific, so you have to customize it to meet your needs. They also have built in …
Qualio
Chose Qualio
We selected Qualio over Greenlight Guru because of the flexibility offered in adapting the system to support software as a medical device (SaMD) processes. Greenlight Guru was more expensive and very focused on hardware medical devices which did not fit our needs.
Chose Qualio
We ultimately went with Qualio because it contains all of the required features and was the easiest to use and implement.

Greenlight Guru
Greenlight Guru is well-suited for medical device companies. They have exceptional resources that are especially helpful for smaller, start-up type companies, including customizable SOPs, Forms, and Work Instructions, as well as countless other educational resources on focused topics like Risk Management or Auditing. Greenlight Guru is NOT currently able to be integrated into any ERP systems and therefore may be difficult for the Operations and Quality aspects of the organization if, for example, manufacturing is being performed in-house, and the ERP system is used to document all quality events. (In this case, it would be redundant to also document them in Greenlight Guru - although could potentially be useful to document investigation details.) Greenlight Guru also only allows documents to be uploaded one at a time, so for companies that want to convert their existing DHF or other QMS files into Greenlight Guru for completeness, this process could be incredibly time consuming.

Qualio
This is one of the most user-friendly QMS programs I have used because it does not require lengthy training to navigate the system. We are able to bring on a new employee and have them start their own initial onboard training in Qualio with only a simple introductory message that shares a few key instructions. The available training in Qualio Help has proved very effective when needed. An individual can pick whatever training is appropriate at that moment and there will be instructions on demand on any topic related to Qualio operations. Qualio is relatively new software and is maturing with a responsive staff that releases new updates on a monthly, weekly, or even daily basis. It has grown incapability in the two years I have used it and it continues to evolve through customer inputs and looking at other state-of-the-art products. The staff listen and respond quickly compared to my past experiences with other QMS software. There is an opportunity for them to provide more and better features, but the gap is closing and the Qualio engineers have been very collaborative to work with, providing us opportunities to participate in their directions for growth.

Cons
Greenlight Guru
  • Periodic review of documents is an industry standard that is missing
  • Would love a training matrix similar to the design matrix that links with procedures/work instructions
  • Ability to modify or add parameters in the analytics function for better trending metrics
  • Ability to modify or add to predetermined "lists" in CAPA, Audits, Nonconformance workspaces

Qualio
  • I would appreciate if similar documents are grouped together. For instance if engineering documents are put in one category and management document in a different category
  • Qualio has links to external documents but it would be helpful if it linked the user to sections within the document also
  • I would prefer that users be able to purchase licences directly without contacting a representative

Two great things Qualio has for customer support. 1. They are available online and on the phone, if needed, 24/7 with very friendly and knowledgeable people. Usually, the wait is no more than 10 or 15 min, and while you wait, you can search their online help library. I used to call first, but now I've found that their online help library usually has he answers already and the instructions are clear. Usually, I learn more than I needed. So I now go there first and only call if I don't find anything in the online help library.

Greenlight Guru
Greenlight Guru definitely has the better/more easily understood UI. I've tried several other training systems and haven't bumped into any of the issues I've faced before, like my training being completed by another person or glitches within the system. Greenlight Guru is a program that doesn't take too long to learn to use and get used to using.

Qualio
Much better suited to a small start-up environment than Green Light Guru. Less suited in terms of usability compared to Q Pulse which has more bespoke configuration options, is easier to configure, and has more modules that interact with each other. Have tried Q Pulse and Green Light Guru.
