Veeva Offers New Global Registrations Management Solution

John LawrieVeeva Systems has launched Veeva Vault Registrations, a solution to manage product registration data worldwide, including registration status, variations, and health authority interactions. The new offering is part of Veeva’s regulatory information management (RIM) suite that also includes Vault Submissions and Vault SubmissionsArchive.

A large life-sciences company can have upwards of 400,000 registrations around the world for different products, indications, packages, and formulations. Typically, its regional affiliates use multiple tools for registration management and rely upon manual processes to bridge the gaps, resulting in redundant or missing information. Disconnected, difficult-to-use systems impede companies’ ability to manage product registrations, health authority interactions, and compliance, according to research by Gens & Associates.

“Veeva Vault Registrations addresses the significant need for a single system that is easy to use, accessible to affiliates worldwide, and provides complete visibility,” says John Lawrie, director of Veeva Vault RIM. “With Vault Registrations, companies can speed time to market by quickly understanding the impact of product introductions and proposed product changes.”

Vault Registrations is part of the upcoming Veeva Vault RIM suite of applications to manage product and registration information, submission documents, and published dossiers.
