Virtify SPL R4 Sharesourcing Solution Provides, On-Demand Label Conversion and Compliance Services for Life Sciences Companies

Cambridge, MA - April 29, 2009 - Cambridge, Mass. - August 10, 2009 - Virtify, Inc., the market leader in enterprise content compliance software solutions for life sciences companies, today announced the Virtify Structured Product Labeling (SPL) Sharesourcing solution, a new on-demand software and services offering for structured product labeling. As life sciences companies race to comply with new SPL and PLR U.S. FDA mandates, Virtify offers a complete solution that combines its flagship Virtx SPL software with a team of specialists to ensure accurate label conversion and guarantee regulatory compliance.

The new SPL R4 standard has grown in size, scope, and complexity, and for the first time includes medical device/drug kits, animal health, OTC, and biologic manufacturing segments, in addition to pharmaceuticals. SPL R4 also eliminates any remaining paper-based forms by requiring detailed ingredient codes, packaging, and establishment registration information be submitted via the FDA Electronic Submissions Gateway.

Virtify's SPL Sharesourcing solution is based on the company's advanced SPL R4 software, Virtx SPL, a web-based solution that automates compliance with current SPL and PLR standards as established by the FDA. The solution also offers an experienced team of conversion specialists and a unique 6-Step SPL conversion methodology to ensure accurate label conversion and 100% compliance. Users gain significant operational efficiencies and time savings from the SPL Sharesourcing software because it streamlines the product labeling development and regulatory submission process. They also have complete control of the labeling content creation - similar to an in-house software solution - but at a fraction of the overall cost of ownership.

"Life sciences companies are racing to comply with the aggressive new FDA standards," said Dr. Satish Tadikonda, president and founder of Virtify. "These new product labeling demands have a very real, significant financial and operational impact. We are pleased to offer a solution that makes compliance seamless and streamlined to meet all of the emerging global standards."
