Genetics Pharma Company Takes Its Data Management to the Next Level with IDBS’ Validation Capabilities

The customer excels at translating scientific research into clinically actionable test results. 

Key points:

  • The customer wanted to replace its paper data management approach  
  • During discussions with IDBS, it became interested in our validation services 
  • IDBS’ validation services will automate validation and therefore greatly increase the customer’s productivity  

The challenge

The customer was looking to up its data management game by replacing their paper-based data management approach with something more sophisticated. When the pandemic ebbed, it decided it was time to act.  

While it was searching for a simple paper replacement ELN, the genetics pharma company was blown away by IDBS’ offering and its original ask turned into a solution that could fulfil its validation requirements.  

The solution criteria

Together, the customer and IDBS explored additional functionalities and outlined the validation requirements, which would be a must-have in the near future. 

The IDBS team identified a need for GxP support and presented the customer with our GxP offering, which has a proven record of improving data management, auditing, and advanced capabilities, including IQ, OQ, and PQ. 

The customer showed interest in these, so we involved more teams to realize the full potential of the IDBS offering. We brought the QA team into the conversation to run on-site demos and showcase the value of the product. This challenged the needs beyond the customer’s requirements and instilled a higher level of trust between us.  

In addition to our sophisticated capabilities, we are also offering flexibility in timing – we are happy to work to their timeline. 

The solution

The customer decided to go ahead – The big selling point was the validation capabilities, particularly the IQ and OQ, so the company didn’t need to deploy such complicated workflows itself. 

The validation services was a big differentiator: it made the spreadsheet capability more enticing.  

The software will do the validation and free up scientist’ time so they can focus on science.  

A quality assurance specialist highlighted: “This is a no-brainer. If someone can automate the validation, the amount of time freed up will directly impact productivity.”  

The customer was interested in more but decided to take things as they come, with room for growth in the near future. 

The impact

The customer successfully signed on and, with IDBS’ support, has begun training its staff. The journey from discovery to implementation was completed in a matter of months. The customer is thrilled by the efficiency and quality brought on by the IDBS team.
