Boehringer Ingelheim Chooses Docuvera® Structured Content Management to Drive Efficiency in Pharmaceutical Documentation

WELLINGTON, New Zealand–()–Author-it Software Corporation today announced that the pharmaceutical company Boehringer Ingelheim selected Docuvera to enable medical authors to efficiently build clinical and regulatory documents from pre-approved components of medical content. Docuvera gives Boehringer Ingelheim a powerful, yet intuitive platform for authors to create and update pharmaceutical documentation in a fraction of the time versus traditional desktop software.

Docuvera, developed specifically for the Life Sciences market, combines component authoring, review and approval, publishing, and audit trails on a single platform allowing BioPharmas to collaboratively author documents, conduct targeted reviews of modified components, and publish Word, PDF or HTML documents from a single source. And, when source content changes, modifications efficiently cascade to documents reusing component content.

“For years, BioPharmas have searched for a solution to the inefficient copying-and-pasting of documents using traditional desktop software. Unfortunately, their only option was complicated software requiring medical authors to think like software programmers,” said Paul Reid, CEO of Author-it. “With Docuvera, medical authors now have an intuitive system that feels as familiar as desktop software, but also allows them to create/update, review/approve and publish documents in a fraction of the time as traditional methods.”

Docuvera is a new breed of SaaS services targeting the Life Sciences segment bringing new technology to an industry that has traditionally been underserved by advances in software. As BioPharmas look for ways to deliver more value with existing resources, increase reliability in meeting deadlines, and improve their overall compliance footprint, Docuvera is becoming an increasingly valuable tool to improve documentation within the drug development lifecycle.
