Leading Japanese pharmaceutical company standardizes on Vault Submissions and Vault Submissions Archive to speed submission development and health authority correspondence

PLEASANTON, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Veeva Systems (NYSE:VEEV) today announced that Sumitomo Dainippon Pharma Co., Ltd. (Head Office: Osaka, Japan; Representative Director, President and CEO: Hiroshi Nomura; hereinafter “Sumitomo Dainippon Pharma”) implemented Vault Submissions and Vault Submissions Archive last year to unify its regulatory submissions processes. As part of the Vault RIM Suite, Vault Submissions and Vault Submissions Archive give Sumitomo Dainippon Pharma a single authoritative source for submission development and enable the company to respond faster to health authority requests.

“Veeva gives us the best technology platform to streamline submissions and improve visibility into global regulatory processes,” said Kenichi Otani, senior director, development regulatory affairs, drug development division, at Sumitomo Dainippon Pharma. “Veeva Vault Submissions and Veeva Vault Submissions Archive help simplify processes and increase collaboration, while making our correspondence with health authorities more efficient.”

Sumitomo Dainippon Pharma previously had a mix of systems to manage regulatory submissions. Since unifying on Veeva Vault RIM applications, Sumitomo Dainippon Pharma gained a single source of truth for all submission activities, from planning to authoring to archiving. This allows the company to have greater access and control over regulatory submissions worldwide.

With actionable reports and dashboards in Vault Submissions, Sumitomo Dainippon Pharma can closely track the progress of submission content as well as the overall status of each submission. Vault Submissions supports all major filing types and country-specific modifications. With Vault Submissions Archive, the company can easily locate the complete history of regulatory submissions, facilitating faster and more accurate interactions with local health authorities.
