Philippe is a Chemical Engineer by trade who founded Solabs almost 20 years ago. Supported by a team of strong developers and IT professionals, Philippe has managed two major iterations of his fully integrated EQMS Solabs QM.

The process is quite unique to Solabs QM and is an extremely useful feature to learn about!
