How many of these pitfalls and traps sound familiar?
  1. We employ multiple systems, creating “silos” that make it difficult to search and retrieve documents.
  2. We rely on a simple — yet restrictive — collaborative workplace program to manage our documents, and there’s reluctance to change.
  3. We hesitate to migrate documentation from newly acquired products or licensing deals because we’re worried about how it will affect the DMS.
  4. We let our eCTD vendor manage submission documentation, but last-minute changes never seem to get integrated back into the DMS.
  5. We keep plowing more money into a system that doesn’t deliver an effective ROI.

In this case-study-driven, 90-minute Encore presentation, regulatory software experts Jill Iacopi and Lee Knoch will illustrate how companies can avoid the most common pitfalls and increase efficiency and milestone achievements, as well as avoid regulatory sanctions, through the use of an appropriately designed document management system.

Using cases studies, attendees will be guided through examples of how firms tackled and overcame their biggest DMS challenges.
