Standard benefits of introducing an IT Solution
When introducing a software solution for validation, the following “standard” benefits which are inherent to IT solutions, are immediately realized, such as:
- Standardization; paperless validation requires defined validation processes and activities, which will be enforced by the software solution. This will avoid reinventing the wheel and ensure optimization and efficiency gains.
- Access anytime, anywhere; the use of a software solution will allow global access, through various kinds of devices. This facilitates teamwork and ensures progress of activities, thereby reducing the cycle time for validation.
- Elimination of paper; paper as a medium requires continuous activities by personnel related to printing, distribution and storage, and these activities can be eliminated by using a software solution. This will lead to efficiency gains and cost reduction, not to mention the positive environmental impact.
- Control; paperless validation enables visibility of validation activities and provides management with the required tools to control and improve processes. This leads to efficiency gains and cycle time reduction.
