SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Author-it Software Corporation (ASC), a world leader in component authoring and content management solutions, announced today the release of DocuveraTM – a SaaS service that promises to transform how life science documentation is created and managed through the lifecycle of drug development. With its easy-to-use web interface, medical authors no longer need to learn complex software tools to efficiently manage labeling information, medical response letters, quality documents and more. By dragging-and-dropping content blocks from one document to the next, authors can easily reuse approved content to build new documents. And, once core blocks of content are updated, the content simply propagates to all downstream documents. This transformative approach can lower costs to create original documents by 50% and change to existing content by 90%.
“Today, medical authors spend countless hours using word processing software to copy and paste content across documents. Then, as content changes, authors need to manually recopy modified information,” said George Northup, CEO of Author-it. “The manual processes can lead to high documentation costs, missed deadlines, and compliance errors. With Docuvera, core blocks of approved content are reused to build documents reducing the time and costs needed to manage documents while drastically lowering compliance errors.”
“Docuvera’s key differentiation is ease-of-use,” said Brian Nace, SVP of Sales and Customer Success. “There are various XML and other systems in the market, but you need to be a software programmer to use them. Our customers want to adopt an enterprise-grade service that has the robust features and security they need, but can be easily rolled out to their medical authors without extensive training or disruptions to existing workflows.”
In addition to its intuitive interface, Docuvera merges component-based authoring with:
- Collaborative review and approval workflows allowing authors, peers, SMEs, legal and managers to simultaneously review component level content assembled into a complete document
- Robust change management tools including extensive component and document level versioning, change notification services for downstream authors, and track-changes view of upstream content changes
- Multi-channel publishing that produces different output formats (e.g., Word, PDF, HTML) from the same core content though the use of separate publishing templates
- A robust audit trail that tracks and stores detailed content and metadata level changes to ensure compliance with 21 CFR Part 11 and other life science standards
