How is PowerDMS different from the competition?
Many policy management solutions share similar features – the ability to store, organize, distribute, and track policies. But PowerDMS goes a step further, integrating your policies, training, and accreditation content to achieve everyday compliance.
Top problems we solve
Easily find your policies
All of your content in PowerDMS is indexed for full-text search, so staff can find what they need, even if they don’t know exactly what they’re looking for.
Automate policy reviews
With automated email reminders and workflows, you can set and forget your policy review cycle, knowing your policies will be reviewed and updated by the right people.
Cumbersome Survey Prep

How does PowerDMS help me maintain survey readiness?
PowerDMS maps your policies, procedures, and proofs of compliance to your accreditation standards. When your documents or standards are updated, you automatically get alerted about the potential impacts, along with a visual comparison so you can easily identify every change.
Each policy that has been mapped to a standard includes a reference of all related standards. This gives administrators the power to see each standard related to the document before updating said document.
With this tool, you can feel confident that your documents are always in compliance. Keep reading to see additional features that help you prepare for surveys or onsite assessments.
What programs does PowerDMS integrate with?
PowerDMS currently integrates with the Microsoft Office and Adobe suite of tools, as well as OneDrive and Google Drive.
Can PowerDMS help simplify our editing and approval processes?
Yes. We’re here to save you time and frustration. Our software integrates with Microsoft Office, Office 365, One Drive, and Google Drive. So when you need to edit a document in PowerDMS, you can edit within these apps. When you click save within an app, the changes are also saved in PowerDMS.
Can PowerDMS help my organization track licenses and credentials?
Yes. With PowerDMS, you can schedule recurring reminders to renew certifications and licenses.
Does PowerDMS provide version control for our documents?
Yes. It’s easy to stay organized with a single, published version of each policy. When it’s time to update a document, all reviewers access a single draft. Once the draft is approved and published, a couple things happen. First, the previous version is automatically archived so you can reference it for future use if necessary. Secondly, every instance of that policy across your policy, training, and accreditation solutions will be updated as well.
