Like many life sciences organizations, our quality environment was heavily paper based and document centric.

We needed a digital system that could incorporate efficient electronic workflows to manage our quality events, audits, SOPs, quality documents and employee training records. In order to achieve an ambitious timeline for the rollout, we opted for the out-of-the-box option with minimum customization.

In this session, I will share the experience of our journey moving from paper-based to paperless Quality System.
