The Internet of Things can best be described as a group of network-enabled technologies which allow devices such as mobile phones, wearables and computers to communicate, interact with each other and act autonomously based on preconfigured parameters. IoT is profoundly changing the way we perceive and use information and it’s already beginning to play a role in different aspects of our lives.
The Life Science industry includes organizations in the fields of biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, biomedical technologies and in general, organizations and institutions that devote the majority of their efforts in various phases of research, development and commercialization.
In our next article in the series of the 10 requirements Life Sciences companies need addressed by their industry specific ERP systems, we cover the next three capabilities: Inventory Storage, Quality Management, and Document Management.
(In our previous articles we covered: Traceability and As Built / As Maintained Configuration Record; Electronic Signatures, Engineering Change Notice, and Effectivity Dates and Phase-Ins.)
In this article, we continue the discussion of the 10 requirements Life Sciences companies need addressed by their industry specific ERP systems. In our last article, we identified the first two requirements – traceability and as built / as maintained configuration records.
In this blog post we will discuss three more requirements: Electronic Signatures, Engineering Change Notice, and Effectivity Dates and Phase-Ins.
To ensure that Life Sciences companies record and store the information required by most regulatory bodies, an ERP system must have certain specific functionality. When evaluating ERP systems, it is important to delve deeply into the capabilities in specific areas to ensure that the supplied features are robust enough to support industry requirements.
During this blog series, we are going to cover 10 Requirements Life Sciences need addressed by their industry specific ERP systems. This article discusses the first two: traceability and as built / as maintained configuration records.
It goes without saying that every business that intends to grow needs an ERP system that provides a framework for business processes and insight into costs, results and performance. For companies in some industries, almost any ERP system will probably work fine. But because of the highly regulated nature of their industry, Life Sciences companies have special requirements they need to consider when selecting an ERP system.
Mobile technologies have come to occupy such a significant place in our everyday lives that many of us cannot imagine living without them. In spite of their prevalence, there is one area that mobile technologies have not infiltrated: pharmaceutical clinical trials. This situation leads to a more costly and less effective clinical trial experience for pharmaceutical companies. Read on to learn the advantages of implementing mobile technologies in clinical trials run by pharmaceutical firms.
Mobile technologies have improved the speed at which life science companies innovate. The R&D process, the supply chain, and clinical tests can all run more efficiently and effectively thanks to the competitive advantages mobile technologies offer. That being said, mobile technologies are not without their challenges. Security and compliance are two examples of obstacles life science companies face. However, implementing a set of best practices regarding mobile technologies will enable life science firms to utilize them effectively and safely.
