Idorsia Implements Veeva Development Cloud
in Less Than 12 Months

Unified applications for clinical, regulatory, and quality help fast-growing start-up drive greater efficiency and compliance throughout development

BARCELONA, Spain — 10 July 2018 — Veeva Systems (NYSE:VEEV) today announced that Idorsia Pharmaceuticals Ltd established an integrated development landscape with Veeva Development Cloud. With unified applications for clinical, regulatory, and quality on a single cloud platform, Idorsia now has the technology foundation to accelerate product innovation and support its global growth plans.

“With a strong pipeline of innovative new therapies, we needed cutting-edge cloud technology that could scale as we grow,” said Joseph Bejjani, CIO at Idorsia. “Our IT strategy had three guiding principles when it came to product selection – cloud-first, easy-to-use functionality, and integrated, platform-based solutions. Veeva met all three objectives within a very tight timeline.”

Idorsia is a fast-growing biopharmaceutical start-up focused on research and early-stage clinical development. Immediately after its founding, Idorsia set an aggressive timeline to transition to new clinical development systems within 12 months.

With Veeva Development Cloud, Idorsia has unified applications to streamline documents and workflows so teams have a single source of truth across clinical, regulatory, and quality. This eliminates manual, duplicative efforts and gives teams consistent information throughout clinical development. Because Veeva Vault applications have the same modern and intuitive interface, teams work with greater speed and spend less time on training.

“Veeva gives us the right technology foundation to manage business processes, content, and data across the organization,” said Simone Mechler, associate director clinical & quality systems. “We exceeded our goal and went live within seven months. All regions and departments now have a consistent view of the products in development to drive greater operational efficiency and maintain compliance.”

Idorsia is using or plans to use multiple applications across Veeva Development Cloud suites, including Vault eTMF and Vault CTMS from Vault Clinical Suite; Vault Registrations, Vault Submissions, and Vault Submissions Publishing from Vault RIM Suite; and Vault QMS and Vault QualityDocs from Vault Quality Suite.

“Idorsia needed to bring together their applications for clinical, quality, and regulatory to streamline drug development,” said Rik Van Mol, vice president, R&D strategy, Europe at Veeva. “Veeva Development Cloud helps life sciences companies like Idorsia achieve alignment across headquarters, sites, and countries and increases communication, collaboration, and compliance across the functions.”
