Pros
My experience with Arena has been fantastic so far. They aim to please and are improving the product all the time.
Overall the software has been very useful to our company and the customer service has been outstanding.
Arena BOM management and change control are outstanding.
Cons
Searches are confusing, and notifications are confusing. Circulating documents through Arena is a hassle.
A team that no longer is with the company made a number of decisions that ended up causing a lot of trouble (for me specifically, as the admin/quality rep) in the future.
While using the software at times I am automatically logged out or the App will crash causing me to have to re login and either look for my last page or use some time waiting for it to log in.

Arena QMS System Review

Reviewed a month ago

Arena overall provides many features that are extremely useful for a Quality Management System. The features and interactions between the different systems and Worlds available are the key to establishing our QMS.

Pros

Moving our change control and corrective action processes from other systems into Arena has been a game changer. The risk of losing records has been reduced dramatically. The workflow status of both the change control and corrective action processes provides the needed visibility for our organization.

Cons

Some of the user functionality is not intuitive which makes navigation of the system by part-time users challenging.

Arena is a good fit for compliance and flexibility

Reviewed a year ago

Positive experience with the system that has maintained our quality control and compliance to meet increasing external compliance demands with MDR and FDA compliance.

Pros

The set up and validation management process are not burdensome as the software is validated but configurable. This helps reduce the compliance management burden of the system while allowing us to customize and add fields as needed.

Cons

There are almost no process flows/logic gates in the system. I have not used a system before that does not allow, for example, an open-field text box to appear when an "Other" option is selected. This can lead to some burdensome workflows with lots of fields that are only applicable in certain circumstances.

Vendor response

Hi Clarke, Thank you for leaving us a review! We're glad that you've found value in our configurability. We also appreciate your feedback regarding process flows and logic and will share with the team.

User Friendly Bill Of Materials Control

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall the software has been very useful to our company and the customer service has been outstanding. Arena gives the customers the ability to customize workflow and also listens to the voices of the customers when releasing new updates.

Pros

ARENA is a very user friendly platform and easy to navigate. It has made it easy for our company to create, document, and maintain Bill of Materials and show visibility to those in our company, as well as third party suppliers/contract manufacturers. Requests and Changes are easily created and implemented.

Cons

The user interface itself looks a little outdated. Some of the integrations aren't exactly what was desired. Even with the Third party integrations, there is a good bit of backend, manual entry to be done.

Vendor response

Hi Bo, Thank you for your review of Arena QMS. We appreciate your feedback. Glad to hear Arena has been helpful for your company and you're happy with our customer service. You noted in the cons section that UI is a little outdated. As you know we've been updating the UI with a fresh, clean look. We have a commitment to improving user experience. -Alaine

PLM and QMS integration

Reviewed a year ago

The implementation took about 12 weeks. But the bigger challenge is getting all users to buy into the process. T

Pros

The Quality module and Product lifecycle management has been critical to our successful implementation.

Cons

Uploading data into Arena can take a while without proper guidance. We uploaded thousands of documents but bulk uploads would cause errors during import due to human error.

Vendor response

Hi Mark, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We're glad that you found more functionality with our product and still find enjoy using it with your current company.
