What's New in this Product Release

Welcome to the new Product Updates page - the easiest way to explore the latest and upcoming updates to EASE

New Conduct Audit Module

The conduct audit feature of EASE is one of the most important components of the software as it enables non-technical employees to conduct plant floor audits with little to no training. The next generation conduct audit delivers improved audit guidance and lays the foundation to provide real-time contextual insights for auditors.

  • Redesigned conduct audit user interface
  • Initially supports layered process audits with other audit types being added in Q1 2021
  • Attach and upload mitigation files directly on the conduct audit page when closing out a mitigation
  • Improved guidance to auditors as to which actions need to be taken in order to complete an audit - especially in the case of question failures
  • Auditors can opt-in or out of the new conduct audit at any time

“The next generation conduct audit and reporting capabilities not only bring immediate benefits but lay the foundation for many future enhancements.”


Scot Larsen, Chief Technology Officer, Ease Inc.
New EASE Reports and Dashboards

Redesigned Reporting and Dashboards

  • New dashboard concept – a collection of one or more report panels
  • Create multiple dashboards to focus visibility on different locations or KPIs
  • Share pre-configured dashboards with other EASE users to enable faster adoption
  • Set target goal lines and % complete for key performance indicators and track progress towards goals directly on each report
  • Increased visualization options for each report type
  • New gauge visualization chart option
  • Improved filter usability including visual indicators of filters currently in use

  • Enhanced custom date range filtering
  • New report types with more specific focus
  • Improved report drilldowns
  • Additional report types will be released throughout the next two quarters

Performance at Scale

During the past 12-months, EASE has seen an exponential growth in audit volume across plants in more than 40 countries. In order to ensure the platform continues to provide a best-in-class experience, the team has been undertaking work to stress test the platform and drive performance improvements. The latest release of EASE has a response time that is now more than 3x faster than just 4 months ago in most of the key application areas.
