Case Study: RIMS & xEVMPD for Global Pharmaceutical Company

Project Summary:

A global biopharmaceutical company needed to streamline operations for its regulatory affairs activities, including xEVMPD submissions, document formatting, publishing and submissions to health authorities, and RIMS data collection and management.

Celegence Solution & Approach:

  • Establish a Center of Excellence to support end to end publishing activities like word formatting, PDF formatting, Publishing for various countries adhering to ICH standards and finalizing the submission package
  • Tackle document-level formatting per customer in-house specification, with Celegence using its own IT tools and processes for document and PDF publishing activities as per regulatory requirements. Find more information here: Business-Process-as-a-Service.
