Software Version: V4.0
Release Date: 3 September 2018
Hooray! So what are the changes?
Stendard First™ Version 4.0 has been officially installed with many new exciting changes. Here are the things you need to know:
+ (FOR ISO 13485 CUSTOMERS) MERGING OF TRANSITING AND NEW ACCOUNTS
Customers will no longer need to worry about needing both accounts to understand the transition requirements. We have now included the ISO 13485 transition checklist and have merged both types of user, collective known as ISO 13485 customers.
+ COLLECTION OF COMPANY INFORMATION
We have removed some of the questions from “Company Information” to make sure all our customers have an efficient way to head straight into our document creation. Only the necessary questions are left to be answered here!
+ NO REPEATED QUESTIONS THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE PROCESS
Any questions in any of the documents are cross-related to one another, ensuring that each question will only need to be answered once. No more repeated questions, no more frustrations in Q&A, only the quickest way towards the creation of document!
+ DIRECT EXPORT INTO DOCX OR PDF
In our prior versions, only PDF-exporting is possible, while our team manually converts the document into DOCX upon request. With this new version release, you can directly select to export in DOCX or PDF. It’s entirely up to you which format serves you the best!
+ REMOVAL OF TEXT EDITOR
With the latest inclusion of the choice of DOCX export, the text editor function would be removed. Users are free to edit anything from fonts, colours and formatting in accordance with your corporate preferences. As the design of Stendard First™ is intended for smart document generation, we believe that customers should have the freedom and ownership in their documentation.
+ GET READY TO EXPORT IN AN INSTANCE
We have removed the need for documents to be ‘Marked as reviewed’ before documents can be exported. In other words, once you have completed your Q&A, you’re ready to go!
+ PREPARATION FOR FUTURE FEATURES
Here’s where it gets a little more exciting. The entire Stendard First™ has been redesigned to allow our team (full of creative minds) to build in future features that will enable your team to maintain your QMS year after year. (Hint: it’s going to be a very exciting journey ahead for all of us!)
Note: It's really quite a magical experience
FAQ for Existing Customers
+ DO I NEED TO DO ANYTHING?
Absolutely not, all your accounts and organisation data are still intact. This means that you can still head to first.stendard.io and log in as per normal. You would be able to navigate around and make changes to your Q&A, or even directly export into *.DOCX document when you are ready!
+ WHAT IF I HAVE ALREADY TEXT EDITED SOME OF MY DOCUMENT IN THE OLDER VERSION OF STENDARD FIRST™?
In order to ensure all our customers maintain a proper control over document numbering and proper naming, the Text Editor feature has been removed in this Version update. It is therefore highly recommended to make the same changes to your latest set of documents generated from Stendard First™ Version 4.0, if necessary.
+ I DID NOT DOWNLOAD THE LATEST COPY OF DOCUMENTS FROM THE OLD VERSION OF STENDARD FIRST™, WHAT CAN I DO?
If text editing were not done previously, you can log in directly to first.stendard.io and notice that all your documents are still intact. However, if text editing were previously already conducted, do contact our Butler (firstname.lastname@example.org) and make private arrangements to visit your old account.
