Life Sciences Key Issues
Meeting global regulations: Governments across the globe enforce quality codes for life sciences manufacturers wherever they sell or distribute products. Generally, the regulations cover all aspects of manufacturing, selling, marketing and distributing products. Failure to comply can result in heavy fines and product recalls. The pressure of demonstrating and validating systems compliance to Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) is paramount.
QAD provides tools to help ensure that users follow all processes and safeguards.
Introducing new products: With limits on patents, technology and science, innovations are critical to drive the success of life science companies.
QAD Enterprise Applications provides the tools needed to manage resources and contain costs across all phases from discovery and development to marketing and manufacturing.
Reducing risk: A secure and auditable system is a key mandate for the life sciences industry. Details on a product’s history, from discovery through manufacturing, need to be accessible in the event the product faces an inquiry.
QAD Enterprise Applications equips manufacturers with the tools to manage systems validation, electronic records and signatures, comprehensive audit trails and lot traceability to reduce risk and cost-effectively manage compliance.
Enhancing performance across the supply chain: Supply chain managers require complete visibility across the extended supply chain to incorporate information from suppliers as well as collaboration with customers.
