Ensuring confidence beyond compliance with DocShifter
Reducing manual work, and the associated costs & risks
PharmaLex, a technology enabled solution provider in the Life Sciences industry, has chosen DocShifter to speed up and automate the preparation of submission-ready PDF documents for their 1000 clients worldwide.
PharmaLex was previously using licensed PDF plug-in tools to prepare content for inclusion in submissions. The process of converting the original source documents to fully compliant submission-ready documents was complex, manual and extremely time-consuming.
Due to the volume (thousands of documents every year) and complexity (different document sizes, multiple formats such as Word, PDF, scanned PDF, etc.) of documents, the PharmaLex team has decided to streamline and rationalise the tools used, and make the switch to DocShifter.
DocShifter works directly with PharmaLex's submission management system, picks up the original source documents, creates the compliant PDF renditions (simultaneously for either one, or multiple HAs), and uploads the compliant PDFs back into the submission management system, ready for compiling into the submission publishing tool. This allows the PharmaLex team to avoid resource intensive tasks, save time on the critical path, reduce cost, reduce the risk of non-compliance, and provide better and faster document publishing services. All while maintaining essential quality and compliance.
