Electronic Certificates of Analysis (e-COA)

Electronic Certificates of Analysis (e-COA) automates quality functions between internal departments and trading partners—digitizing approval of inbound or outbound product specifications and more.

Benefits


Get More Control Over
the Quality Function

Compare buyer and supplier specs to prevent problems with the customer or at the plant. Automate quality-related transactions, data exchange and criteria with Electronic Certificates of Analysis so it can be managed with less admin, risk and time investment.

Reduce Material-Related
Risk, Cost and Variability

With a more efficient exchange of quality authentication between trading partners, manufacturers are able to stop off-spec materials and components at the gates. Sellers are able to better ensure consistent quality and all parties make the most of their spend.

Empower Forensic
Analysis

Having to ask “What went wrong?” is never fun. But when it’s unavoidable, the e-COA brings the product pedigree needed for root-cause answers. These authentications also enable better supplier assessment or value prop support.
