Life Science Industry Challenges • Need for Collaboration and Control of Compliant Content: • The lack of a centralized, globally accessible platform to manage and store essential study documentation • Inconsistent document management processes across the organization and between organizations • Inconsistent or incomplete work assignments • Inefficient notification of key events requiring follow-on action • Incomplete, missing, expired or redundant documentation • Other technical, administrative or security related obstacles Lack of an effective document management system can lead to loss of expert knowledge, inconsistent procedures and processes, re-work, flawed decision making, and missed deadlines, all of which ultimately translate to increased costs.
