IQMS Announces Device History Record Module For EnterpriseIQ


5/16/2006 10:44:02 AM

PASO ROBLES, Calif., May 16 /PRNewswire/ -- IQMS, a leader in the design and development of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software, today announced the availability of the Device History Record (DHR) module for its EnterpriseIQ ERP software. The new module links device history records to the rich set of ERP capabilities found in EnterpriseIQ, resulting in a real-time, electronic platform that provides total visibility and control over the manufacturing process. With EnterpriseIQ and the DHR module in place, medical device manufacturers can cost-effectively eliminate time-consuming, paper-based tracking systems, streamline product development and better ensure quality standards compliance.

"Medical device manufacturers operate in one of the world's most competitive and highly regulated industries where time-to-market delays and a lack of traceability can mean the difference between failure and success," said Randy Flamm, president and founder of IQMS. "In this environment, paper-based DHR systems are quickly becoming obsolete. EnterpriseIQ with its DHR module automates process tracking and approvals to deliver complete traceability, improved quality compliance, higher yields and faster time to market. It's a true competitive advantage over paper-based systems."

Using Web-based workflow tools and email, the IQMS DHR module transparently connects business systems and real-time data to promote open communication and eliminate redundant activity. In-process control and enforcement are easily managed throughout the product lifecycle. For example, each person in a work group is simultaneously notified of change orders via email. Once notified, team members can simply click on the provided link and approve changes with an electronic signature. This eliminates the inefficient process of paper-based approvals passed from one person to the next, and it also saves on document storage space. The system's user-friendly interface also helps operators to follow proper procedures with easy-to-access work instructions, including drawings, process routings, and bills of materials. Product introduction within the system is not confined to internal procedures and processes, so it is easy to monitor raw material supplier and outsource vendor activities as well.

By going paperless with EnterpriseIQ and its DHR module, medical device manufacturers can expect to benefit from:

-- Cost-effective and more efficient device history tracking -- Immediate data analysis and structured reporting -- Improved FDA compliance through the online capture of data -- Faster time to market and reduced liability risk Availability

The DHR module is available immediately. For more information on the module or EnterpriseIQ, visit http://www.iqms.com/products/quality/dhr.htm
