More companies are aligning regulatory processes and systems to drive greater efficiency and productivity
PHILADELPHIA – DIA 2016 Annual Meeting – June 27, 2016 – Today at the Drug Information Association’s (DIA) Annual Meeting, Veeva Systems (NYSE: VEEV) announced broad industry adoption of its regulatory information management (RIM) solutions, Vault Registrations, Vault Submissions, and Vault Submissions Archive. More than 55 life sciences companies – including 20 since the Veeva Vault RIM suite was announced late last year – have adopted Veeva’s RIM solutions for a single authoritative source of content and data to improve regulatory operations and compliance.
Life sciences companies are struggling with highly fragmented regulatory information environments where each region or affiliate maintains information in multiple systems and spreadsheets, resulting in duplicate data, documents, and effort. However, recent industry research finds those with unified RIM systems for headquarters and affiliates have better process integration, reduced time to submission, and higher user productivity.
Veeva is helping organizations unite submission documents, published dossiers, product registrations, and health authority interactions with a single authoritative source for all regulatory information. Adoption of Veeva Vault RIM is on the rise as companies look to streamline regulatory processes, improve data quality, and respond more quickly and accurately to health authority inquiries.
“The Veeva Vault RIM suite of applications has helped our regulatory operations team achieve optimal efficiency,” said Daniel Takefman, head of regulatory affairs at Spark Therapeutics. “The ability to have a fully integrated, real-time view of regulatory processes has helped us improve efficiencies while maintaining compliance for records management. We’ve greatly improved alignment across our entire organization.”
“The concept of a unified suite of RIM applications is gaining momentum as customers seek greater visibility and global alignment across regulatory activities and a growing ecosystem of stakeholders,” said John Lawrie, vice president of Veeva Vault RIM. “With a single source of truth for regulatory content and data, life sciences companies are achieving productivity and efficiency gains across their organizations.”
Veeva Vault RIM is part of Veeva Vault, a cloud-based content management platform and suite of applications that provide a single source of truth to reduce complexity and increase business agility. Traditionally, companies have had to deploy multiple applications to manage content and the associated data. Veeva Vault is the only content management platform with the unique capability to manage both content and data so that life sciences companies can eliminate system silos and manage end-to-end regulatory processes and content.
Further industry trend data on the impending change ahead for regulatory is available in today’s infographic.

How Are You Managing Regulatory Events?” on Tuesday, June 28 at 1:20 p.m. in Exhibit Hall B, at the DIA 2016 Annual Meeting.
In related news today at DIA, Kinapse selected Veeva Vault Submissions for authoring and managing regulatory submissions content. Veeva also released the latest findings of the Veeva 2016 Paperless TMF Survey, which shows that eTMF application use has doubled amid the industry-wide drive to improve inspection readiness and shorten clinical trial time. A presentation on the full research findings will be given at DIA on Tuesday, June 28 at 3:25 p.m. in the Innovation Theater, Exhibit Hall B.
