Case Study Summary

About Sanofi Pasteur MSD:

Founded in 1994 as a joint venture between Sanofi Pasteur and Merck and Co. Inc., Sanofi Pasteur MSD is the only European company dedicated exclusively to vaccines. It employs more than 2,000 people, has a presence in 19 countries, and offers one of the broadest portfolios of vaccines available.

The Situation:

Sanofi Pasteur MSD had no standardized system for capturing, storing, and tracking the documentation required for regulatory submissions in 19 countries. This prevented Sanofi Pasteur MSD managers and executives from gaining deep insight into the status of document collection.

The Solution:

Sanofi Pasteur MSD deployed the NextDocs Document Management System. Using Microsoft SharePoint Server as a foundation, the NextDocs solution provides a powerful document management, workflow, and collaboration solution that meets FDA 21 CFR Part 11 requirements.


Sanofi Pasteur MSD now has a streamlined and efficient document management process that helps it capture, store, and track documents originating in locations throughout Europe. This increases efficiency, fosters confidence in the integrity of the documentation record, and facilitates the preparation of materials for submission in the electronic Common Technical Document (eCTD).
