For medical device manufacturers, success depends on cost-effectively maintaining regulatory compliance, driving rapid technological innovation, efficiently documenting quality data, managing product life cycles, and driving higher value to customers. It takes a lot risk management and continuous improvement to remain competitive in the face of these complex requirements.
Medical Device manufacturing companies operate in one of the most competitive – and regulated – industries today. Like many technology, electronics, and device manufacturing organizations, success in the Medical Device industry depends on a company's ability to produce the highest quality products faster than the competition. Unlike many other industries, however, Medical Device manufacturers must meet some of the most stringent government and customer compliance regulations regarding documentation, controlled processes, and product safety.
This requires more than medical device ERP or Quality Management software.
Sure, Medical Device companies need features like electronic device history records, CAPA, track and trace, recall procedures, learning management, document management, kitting and assembly, warranty and more. But all of these features mean nothing if your people do not accept change and adopt the system; your workstreams are inefficient; the solution is not validated or implemented correctly; or there is no foundation for continuously improving value to customers.
Therefore, it is extremely important that any Medical Device company looking to undertake an enterprise transformation project works with a proven consulting partner with expertise streamlining workstreams, mitigating risk, facilitating organizational adoption, and implementing compliant software solutions.
