Sponsors struggle to collaborate with mission-critical partners when using traditional on-premise technologies. As an alternative, cloud-based Vault Submissions enables global access and easy collaboration for more efficient submission content production. Now, with integrations to leading publishers, life sciences companies have a more robust cloud option. "Combining content management and publishing capabilities in the cloud offers a credible and innovative alternative to the architecture of the past 15 years," said Steve Gens, Managing Partner of Gens and Associates; a Life Science benchmark and consultancy. "This announcement is an important step towards next generation solutions and illustrates how vendors can create valuable partnerships across technologies." Christian Bohrmann, EXTEDO's Vice President of Marketing and Alliances, said, "There is a clear trend in the life sciences industry toward using cloud-based solutions to manage regulated processes and content. With the integration of Vault Submissions and eCTDmanager, sponsors and local affiliates anywhere in the world can reliably access and publish the most current documents with each submission." Vault Submissions is built on a modern multitenant cloud architecture for rapid innovation with no software upgrades. As a truly cloud-based solution, Veeva customers can more easily stay current with regulatory changes. And, Vault Submissions' real-time reporting gives companies visibility into submission readiness and missing documents to speed the submission process.
