QBench has a feature known as modules, which allows you to customize your experience. The modules QBench currently features QMS, Inventory, Billing, and Worksheets.
The QMS module (or Quality Management System module) houses many management tools for labs. With every aspect of QMS enabled, you will see features such as Issues, Equipment, Documents, and Training.
You may wonder why Equipment is not considered part of Inventory. Inventory tracks items within the lab that can be used up, such as reagents. Equipment tracks items that are not likewise used up and require regular maintenance or calibration.
In QMS, you can also create logs but only if you have the QBench Worksheets module.
The Inventory module allows tracking of expendable lab resources.
You may also note that you're able to track Suppliers under Partners. This is because the Suppliers page is connected to Inventory (or Equipment, and thus QMS.)
The Billing module allows you to create invoices for your clients. You can likewise create and choose invoices from the Invoice Template page under Configuration.
Finally, the Worksheet module enables you to create worksheets. As mentioned previously, you will also see Logs under QMS if you have both enabled.
As an administrator, you will also see Modules under General Settings. Here, you can enable or disable portions of QBench to streamline use.
Admins in QBench are also able to assign modules to users in QBench. This is done from the User Settings under the User page. Here, you can assign a user to the modules you want them to see.
You don't have an unlimited amount of active subscriptions for QBench. The amount of active users and subscriptions to modules is limited to your contract with QBench.
You can create more users than subscriptions to QBench. In order to do this, you must set some users to inactive. This is used to retain logs of users who may no longer be with your company or work in that department.
