Integration of Veeva Vault with Microsoft Office Online improves user productivity across their most critical business processes

PLEASANTON, CA and REDMOND, WA – Oct. 4, 2016 – Veeva Systems (NYSE: VEEV) today announced the integration of Veeva Vault with Microsoft Office Online to unite leading cloud innovators and best-of-breed enterprise applications, delivering real-time, collaborative authoring in a compliant way.

“For life sciences customers, it’s a race against time in bringing treatments and life-saving products to market,” said Jennifer Goldsmith, senior vice president of Veeva Vault. “Seamless integration of Veeva Vault with Office Online will boost customer productivity by unifying applications and business processes to respond faster and improve compliance.”

“The cloud is empowering business and IT leaders to drive significant transformation in how they run and manage their business,” said Rob Howard, director of Office Ecosystem, Microsoft Corp. “By integrating with Office Online, Veeva can provide their customers a powerful content management and collaboration experience that fits how they work and need to get things done with speed.”

Veeva Vault is a content management platform and suite of applications that delivers a single source of truth for content and data across the enterprise. Veeva Vault not only manages regulated documents, but also the information for product development and commercialization processes. Together with Office Online applications such as Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Microsoft Excel, customers can author, review, and approve files online and work together with greater ease.

The integration of Veeva Vault with Office Online will enable business users to:

  • Collaborate in real-time and create content faster with multiple users editing documents and viewing changes simultaneously, while capturing an audit trail to meet compliance.
  • Improve productivity and maintain a single source of truth for content and data by editing documents directly in a browser without downloading them.
  • Always stay current with the latest cloud innovations with no ongoing maintenance, validation, or integration of applications.
  • More than 200 customers, including 35 of the top 50 pharmaceutical companies, use Veeva Vault applications to streamline their global business processes. This partnership will enable life sciences companies to improve the speed and compliance of content creation across clinical, quality, regulatory, medical, and commercial operations, including quality documentation, promotional materials, and protocol authoring.
