VDM Consulting

This whole exercise has empowered the Consulting Division to control our information and intellectual property which will result in efficiency and due observation of the process requirements of a professional engineering business.

The word back from the users of the system is around “effective, user friendly, time saving, innovative, accountability …” which augers well for our future.

VBM is a powerful and innovative document management system which whilst making employees motivated and accountable, it focuses the entire work force on activities that will create value for themselves as well as the business.

My thoughts on Advantage VBM – Well what a fantastic system you have. It is comprehensive and so very user friendly. I think it will be a great asset to the company.

Thank you to everyone for their commitment to quality, especially their patience and positive attitude towards the implementation of our new core processes and the rollout of VBM. Staff input into the core process and VBM has been critical. Since the last audit there has been a lot of hard work by all staff to make sure correct processes and procedures are followed. We wouldn’t have had such a positive response from the auditor without this level of commitment.

I would like to acknowledge Mike McGinty’s work and support over the last 6 months or so. He has been a great asset to the business.

The auditor was suitably impressed with our internal systems (core processes & VBM) and how we manage our compliance requirements.

We approached CY Innovations for advice about upgrading our ISO9001 certified business management system as part of our Quality Business Processes and Information Management Improvement Project.

After talking to Mike McGinty and actually seeing how our unique business practices could be mapped, documented and implemented in Advantage VBM we knew we had a solution which was readily adaptable to suit our business needs. I was particularly impressed by Mike’s attention to detail and his involvement of all our staff to create a comprehensive system. They are all part of the resulting system which they now feel ownership of, from executive management, business development, department managers, operations staff, HR, HSEQ, finance and IT.

I would highly recommend Advantage VBM and CY Innovations services to anyone wanting to create a best in practice quality, safety and environmental management system.

I have dealt with Mike McGinty from CY Innovations since 2016 during the implementation and ongoing use of the VBM system within RJV.

I found Mike to be extremely approachable and always available when needed. He is very helpful, nothing is too much trouble and he explains things in a step by step manner which is easy to understand.

Before Advantage VBM our electronic filing system was a mess, now we have a logically organised and easy to use format.

Mike McGinty spent a lot of time tailoring the system to the needs of RJV and its staff, who were provided sufficient training before implementation and with the thorough knowledge and helpfulness of Mike, transition was stress-free and easy.

As an administrator and daily user of Advantage VBM I would recommend the system and CY Innovations.

I have had a close working relationship with Mike McGinty from the early stages of setting up VBM in our systems, throughout the implementation and rollout.

Mike’s passion and dedication in ensuring the transition from our old system to the VBM System ran smoothly and with little disruption was exemplary. He was always available to answer queries, solve problems and offer support when needed. He continues to provide ongoing support which is greatly appreciated.

I’m very impressed with the Advantage VBM System for its simplicity and logical format, particularly the Biz Group structure that brings together the department relationships. I’ve found VBM to be simple to understand and easy to manage.

Watching what has occurred with the public folders, this is a very strong case for the management of correspondence via a good project control database such as Advantage VBM. I have been using VBM for project correspondence and the traceability VBM offers is invaluable for evidentiary purposes not only in OH&S but in any contractual matter. I am sure you would be aware of this but I thought it worth a mention.

On large EPCM I have been involved with this became extremely important and (name supressed) in particular win projects because of their project control systems. I have already used this traceability with good effect recently.

Public folders can potentially expose the company to litigation as evidence can and as has been proven will be lost forever. I for one will never store valuable OH&S information in a public folder for this very reason, exposure to both the company and myself professionally is not worth it.

A quick update for you on the operation from Tom Price site; I have been on site two times since VBM was installed and I have found it not only acceptable in terms of speed (marginally slower than when on line in Perth) but also very practical in me being able to keep the data base up to date instead of waiting to get back to Perth and load up to a weeks of correspondence later.

I am getting familiar with the file structure the more I use it and find that in general VBM covers 90% of what I need with a minimal requirement for me to adjust the structure for project specific requirements.

I have found Advantage VBM to be an exceptionally useful and reliable tool. The user friendly package requires minimal training and allows documents to be filed away for future reference. The software was very useful as it monitored correspondence sent to/from company stakeholders; a useful tool when wondering if that important document was actually sent to a client last month.

I am using Advantage VBM to organize all of my quality documentation.  We are ISO 9000, AS9100 and NADCAP approved.  VBM is an excellent tool for keeping everything organized, tracking all revisions and distributing copies to the appropriate departments.  I looked at a lot of software before making my choice, and I definitely made the right one.  Very simple to set up and use, and a very economical piece of software for the features that are available.

All things considered, Advantage VBM is a reliable application that can help you organize documents on your computer as well as other data such as contacts and email messages. It comes with a comprehensive user interface, packs an extensive collection of functions and features a detailed help manual to help you understand and operate its controls with ease.

I would not hesitate to recommend Advantage VBM. The resulting system is now operational and will provide huge benefits to the organisation. We now have structure and consistency built around our day to day operations, particularly in terms of our quality procedures and electronic document and records control. We chose Advantage VBM because of its flexibility in adapting to the way we wish to run our business as well as its many time-saving features which will benefit our staff.

I would not hesitate to recommend Advantage VBM to any other organisation wanting to improve their ISO9001 systems or regain control of their shared drives and electronic filing.

Dealing with the CYI Team was exceedingly beneficial as they took the time to understand the needs of the business and offered constructive/informative ideas rather than just trying to sell a product. The VBM system delivers everything it advertised and has certainly improved the day to day operations of the business.

I am extremely pleased with Advantage VBM and would certainly recommend CY Innovations and the VBM System to anyone requiring a similar product.

VBM is a great product! The system makes sense because it’s set up to match how your unique business operates. Managing and controlling your documents is easy with VBM.

Mike is extremely helpful and always prompt assisting with any issues. I have no hesitation in recommending VBM and the team at CY Innovations.
