You ask, we answer! Yup, here are all the questions we’ve been asked by customers and prospective customers – most often when trying to make a decision about audit/inspection management software. And, here are the answers – because we believe the best decision is an informed one!

User Management

Yes of course. At Certainty, we appreciate that decisions about enterprise-level software involve a lot of people and take a long time. If you want to use Certainty at your site but don’t have budget or buy-in for a wider corporate-wide project, that’s OK as you can start a project with a smaller group of users and expand if and when you wish.

Yes, Certainty’s administration tools allow you to define – completely – the site(s) or Site Group(s) a user has access.
