Another company emphasizing standards is enterprise content solutions provider Virtify, which has announced standards-compliant software for content management in a secure online environment. Its Virtx suite provides out-of-the-box compliance with such standards and regulatory mandates as Clinical Trial Disclosure, Electronic Common Technical Document (eCTD) and Structured Product Labeling (SPL).
"The ability to dynamically author, manage, access and re-use accurate content is critical to bringing consistency to validation processes," says George Skillin, senior director at Wyeth, a Virtify customer, in an announcement. "Virtify's approach to enterprise content compliance makes this possible by automating and streamlining the complex content exchange requirements from scale-up through to full operations. By enabling content structure and re-use across the many tasks required for engineering validation and other activities, Virtify enables companies like Wyeth to streamline these efforts, reduce costs and increase operating performance through the product life cycle."
The Virtx suite's workflow design enables collaborative content authoring, reviewing, archiving, and re-use, minimizing inconsistencies and redundancies enterprise-wide, the company says. Features include a Web 2.0 interface, Microsoft/desktop-like conventions for nontechnical users and a shared content repository that separates content from structure for a "create once, publish many" approach to managing regulated content. Changes made once can be leveraged across all applications and publishing outputs, the company says, and a common metadata repository yields standard nomenclature across all products. The software is available for license (SaaS or perpetual) or in combination with an integrated enterprise content compliance solution.
