Industry’s first unified cloud solution breaks down silos in quality management, connects end-to-end processes across all global stakeholders
PLEASANTON, CA – May 26, 2016 – Veeva Systems (NYSE:VEEV) today unveiled the industry’s first cloud application that unifies quality management processes in life sciences. Veeva Vault QMS replaces disparate, on-premise systems to manage global quality processes across an organization, including external partners. Together with Veeva Vault QualityDocs, Veeva now offers the only integrated suite of quality applications for seamless end-to-end content and quality management, delivering greater visibility and collaboration.
“Quality management solutions are crucial to ensuring product safety and ongoing regulatory compliance,” said Robert Lorence, vice president, Quality and Compliance Services at HighPoint Solutions. “Veeva’s new QMS application offers the market a powerful, modern, cloud alternative to existing on-premise quality management systems. In an industry segment continually looking for greater efficiency and effectiveness, this is welcome news.”
Increased global outsourcing of quality manufacturing, combined with intensified regulatory scrutiny, is fueling complexity in the life sciences industry. While the majority of companies have implemented a quality management system, these solutions often reside – and are only accessible – within a company’s four walls1. This limits visibility and access throughout the entire global supply chain for critical stakeholders, especially external contract manufacturers and partners.
Veeva solves this with a suite of cloud applications – Vault QMS and Vault QualityDocs – that brings together quality processes and documentation throughout the enterprise. The new Vault QMS application incorporates external stakeholders into the full spectrum of quality processes, including deviations, lab investigations, complaints, internal and external audits, corrective and preventive actions, and change control. This reduces compliance risks and eliminates bottlenecks in bringing drugs and treatments to market.
“Quality management is more complicated today, involves more people and geographies, and requires greater transparency for regulatory authorities,” said Michael Jovanis, vice president of Veeva Vault Quality. “Customers struggle to keep quality processes and documentation in sync and incorporate external partners with disparate systems. Vault QMS meets the realities of today’s quality manufacturing environment and connects the entire end-to-end quality process.”
Veeva Vault QMS is the latest application built on Veeva Vault, a cloud platform and suite of applications that provide a single source of truth across the enterprise. Native interoperability between Vault applications empowers life sciences companies to streamline their business processes across an increasingly broad ecosystem of internal and external stakeholders.
Veeva Vault QMS will be available in late June 2016. To learn more about how cloud–based quality solutions are modernizing quality management, register for the upcoming webinar, “Modernizing Quality Management,” and see a live demonstration of Vault QMS on July 14, 2016.
