Building on Growth

As global health and regulatory authorities continue to push for tighter controls and electronic standards, many life sciences organizations find themselves challenged due to outdated processes that are fragmented and paper-based. To enable accurate and timely compliance customers are demanding new technologies and systems that are modeled on best-practices and easily configurable to adapt to changing regulatory requirements.

Virtify has emerged as an innovator and technology leader in Enterprise Content Compliance for life sciences. The company has quietly built a strong reputation and following in the life sciences industry where R&D, clinical trial and submissions activities have become increasingly regulated. Virtify's easy-to-use Virtx software suite is the industry's only solution to provide a secure, collaborative web-based environment for managing regulated content throughout the entire product continuum -- from pre-clinical through product registration to commercialization. The Virtify product suite is highly modular and built to comply with a variety of different global standards and mandates surrounding clinical trial transparency, eCTD, SPL/PLR/PIM, and submissions planning and tracking. Its open architecture is standards-based and designed to leverage a company's existing infrastructure including standard security systems, databases and legacy document management systems.

"With Steve and his team, we've added a strong combination of strategic consulting, solution development and go-to-market leadership skills that will enable us to fully leverage this opportunity and help take the company to the next level. Steve is a great addition to the Virtify team," said Dr. Satish Tadikonda, president and founder of Virtify Inc.
