Generis and DocShifter Partner to Provide Compliant Content for Life Sciences

About us - Trusted Partners

DocShifter proudly announces its exciting new partnership with Generis Knowledge Management Inc. to provide industry-leading rendition handling as part of their CARA toolsuite. The advanced content conversion abilities of DocShifter, together with the functionality in CARA and the resulting application will provide complete compliance functionality for regulated content management use cases, especially for Life Sciences.

Serving the world’s top Life Sciences companies

“There are various regulatory requirements that our clients face to provide content in a compliant set of formats, with the features and functionality of CARA on top”, said James Kelleher, CEO at Generis. “Our integration with DocShifter enables customers to ensure that content is managed to these requirements, with a wide range of integrations that CARA also offers to other applications specifically in the Life Sciences industry.”

CARA provides customers an industry-leading, cost-effective and highly flexible user interface, either on premises or in the cloud; Generis’s customers include 8 of the top 10 largest Life Science companies as well as government and finance companies, and there are over 400,000 licensed users of Generis software products. CARA in particular not only provides a high degree of ergonomic and functional advantages, but comes with a set of Life Sciences solutions pre-packaged as accelerators or “RapidDeploy” options, including Submission / CTD, Electronic Trial Master File (eTMF), SOPs / Quality Management, and Change Control. With this new integration, Generis and DocShifter offer customers a tightly integrated solution. The solution will be 21 CFR Part 11 and GxP compliant, as well as offering the End to End RIM (Regulatory Information Management) functionality of CARA.

An easy answer to the high regulatory requirements

DocShifter allows its customers to easily automate the generation of compliant output according to the different local regulatory authorities’ needs. Other uses include robotic form generation, correspondence management, tracking automation, and standardization for archiving.

Geert Van Peteghem, CEO at DocShifter states “The combined CARA and DocShifter solution can drastically speed up and simplify the process of generating compliant output. Our customers in Life Sciences are seeking an easy way to create submission ready PDFs, in accordance with the different local regulatory requirements”, adding that “the need for content conversion capabilities is growing: preparing content for archiving; and automating correspondence tracking processes being two such use cases. This partnership with Generis will allow us to streamline previously disjointed processes for our customers and maximize their investment with us.”
