Veeva Systems and UL EduNeering Partner to Deliver Integrated Learning Solution

Trending Now:  The partnership marries industry cloud solutions to improve quality and compliance across the value chain.

PV0216_EthanSmithUL EduNeering is delivering a connector integrating Veeva Vault QualityDocs, a cloud-based life-sciences document management and control solution, with its ComplianceWire, a learning management system. Developed by UL EduNeering, the connector leverages Vault’s open APIs and allows life-sciences companies to align training curriculum with regulated content, increasing inspection readiness, providing visibility into compliance risk, and elevating overall quality.

With UL EduNeering’s connector, companies leveraging Vault QualityDocs and ComplianceWire can provide reliable documentation, easy access and coordination of information and training, and full visibility into supporting processes — the building blocks for enhancing quality and compliance. The UL EduNeering connector can detect new training content in Vault QualityDocs and prompt the next appropriate action in ComplianceWire, ensuring employees are current on critical content and providing near real-time status on training and assessments.

In addition, Veeva and UL EduNeering’s connected solutions can streamline employee training for greater operational efficiency while eliminating content redundancy.

“Life-sciences companies will now have a faster and more compliant way to track and assess training progress, including knowledge comprehension,” says Ethan Smith, director of product strategy at Veeva. “No more lengthy delays from the time a change is made to an SOP, or other critical document, to the time employees have been trained on it. This integration enables up-to-the-minute SOP training status anytime throughout a quality document’s lifecycle.”
