UL EduNeering and Veeva Systems Partner to Deliver Integrated Learning and Content Management Solution for the Life Sciences Industry

Partnership marries leading industry cloud solutions to improve quality and compliance across the value chain

PLEASANTON, Calif. & PRINCETON, N.J.--()--Veeva Systems and UL EduNeering today announced that UL EduNeering will deliver a connector integrating Veeva Vault QualityDocs, a cloud-based life sciences document management and control solution, with UL’s ComplianceWire®, a leading 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.

“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.”

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 will 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. Users will be able to seamlessly access the new content, read, and complete tasks or tests on any device. All learning and compliance activities will be logged in detailed audit trails that extend from content creation, review, and approval to training and assessment. Companies can also generate custom reports for inspectors on demand.

ComplianceWire has been used to train more than 35,000 FDA investigators and hundreds of life sciences companies globally. “This partnership combines UL EduNeering’s top learning management system in the industry with Veeva’s best-in-class document management and control solution that promotes employee development for overall quality improvement,” said Scott Barnard, vice president of market strategy and innovation at UL EduNeering. “Plus, cloud-based Vault QualityDocs delivers crucial process visibility to enable more proactive mitigation of issues and reduce compliance risk.”

In addition, Veeva and UL EduNeering’s connected solutions can streamline employee training for greater operational efficiency while eliminating content redundancy. For example, ComplianceWire users will be able to seamlessly access critical content in Vault QualityDocs with single sign-on, eliminating the administrative overhead of maintaining and syncing content in two different applications and preventing users from having to toggle between various systems. “A seamless flow from content to training, helps prevent costly knowledge delays,” added Barnard.

As critical, Vault QualityDocs and ComplianceWire are both FDA 21 CFR Part 11-compliant and validation ready.

“Life sciences companies will now have a faster and more compliant way to track and assess training progress, including knowledge comprehension,” said 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.”

The connector from UL EduNeering is planned for availability in Q1 2016.
