What is the Documentation Module?

Our documentation module houses our documentation register which allows for in depth document control through the registered approval and review of all items. Items can be assigned ownership and responsibility and reminders will be sent when they require review. Each documented item will be assigned a specific reference, type and status so they are clearly categorised and easy to find. Our search functions and quick links to the document location allow for instant access to the latest version of all documents, cutting down unnecessary searching and paperwork and ensuring all staff are using the latest documentation version.

How do I customise JLB Track for my business?

JLB Track can be customised in a multitude of ways to suit your organisation. The modules can be switched on or off dependent on what the organisation as a whole or users within individual roles want to see. You can edit, add to, delete and reorganise options within dropdown boxes, for example document types and NCR origins. The risk matrix and EPE scoring guidelines can be created to match your organisations management manual. All records will also be printed with your own logo!

What is the difference between an NCR and CAR?

A Nonconformance (NCR) occurs when there is a variation from the specification or requirements. Whilst incorrect it is not considered a major problem or risk that will substantially impact the business. While all nonconformances are normally addressed or fixed, often immediately, not all need to be investigated to find their root cause.

Examples of Nonconformances (NCR):

  • Operational problems
  • Customer complaints
  • Compliments
  • Good ideas & suggestions
  • Internal & External Audit NCRs.

A Corrective Action Request (CAR) should consider the action that will be taken to eliminate the root cause of a detected nonconformity or other major variation from specifications or requirements. The CAR should investigate the underlying cause and consider a solution and then implement the corrective strategy. CARs often stem from recurrent NCRs or serious issues.

How do I set up JLB Track?

Our dedicated Track team will set up your account with your guidance. We can tailor the system to suit your organisation by customising the different modules and field drop down options.

Do you offer training for JLB Track users? Will we have after-training support?

Which web browsers are supported by JLB Track?

We recommend using Google Chrome.

Do I need to install additional software in order to run JLB Track?

No. JLB Track is entirely web based – all that is required is an appropriate device with a web browser and an internet connection.

How secure is my data?

Data is protected via a software-based tenancy system that interacts with a central database. All queries to the database restrict access of data to only return data that is within the user’s current tenancy, thereby locking out all unauthorized access in accordance with best practice data security.

JLB Track security meets the requirements for clients’ certification to ISO 27001 (Requirements for information security management systems). Moreover, JLB Track meets all Australian Commonwealth and State Government Departments’ security requirements, including the Department of Defence.

Data managed by JLB Track is hosted in the Cloud in Sydney, Australia, by Amazon Web Services Australia Pty Ltd (AWS).

AWS is compliant to the Information Security Registered Assessors Program (IRAP). IRAP compliance enables customers to validate that appropriate controls are in place and determine the appropriate responsibility model for addressing the requirements of the Australian Government Information Security Manual (ISM) produced by the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD). Refer to the AWS website, https://aws.amazon.com/compliance/irap/, for AWS terms and conditions.

AWS is also certified ISO 27001 for its information security management system.

How many users can I have?

The number of users will be determined by your subscription package; however JLB Track allows for an infinite number of users.

What happens if an employee leaves?

You can easily suspend users to disable their JLB Track access while retaining all the records they have created or edited.

How do you control who sees which modules?

The modules a user can access on JLB Track depends on the permissions they have been assigned. When a user is created they will be assigned a ‘role’ within the system and this ‘role’ will have varying levels of permission dependent on your preferences, you can choose who you want to be able to create, edit or even delete items.

We start all our clients off with 6 default roles which can then be customised. These roles are Administrators, Manager, Staff, Document Controller, Human Resources and Training Manager. If your organisation requires other roles, we will happily accommodate this.

How will I be billed?

Our preferred method of payment is by direct debit however our dedicated Accounts team are happy to discuss other options to suit your organisation.
