With this new integration, Generis and DocShifter offer customers a tightly integrated solution. CARA provides customers an industry-leading, cost-effective and highly flexible user interface, either on premises or in the cloud; Generis’s customers include 8 of the top 10 largest Life Science companies as well as government and finance companies, and there are over 400,000 licensed users of Generis software products. CARA in particular not only provides a high degree of ergonomic and functional advantages, but comes with a set of Life Sciences solutions pre-packaged as accelerators or “RapidDeploy” options, including Submission / CTD, Electronic Trial Master File (eTMF), SOPs / Quality Management, and Change Control.

DocShifter allows customers to easily automate the generation of compliant output according to the different local regulatory authorities’ needs. Other uses include robotic form generation, correspondence management, tracking automation, and standardization for archiving.

Geert Van Peteghem, CEO at DocShifter states “The combined CARA and DocShifter solution can drastically speed up and simplify the process of generating compliant output. Our customers in Life Sciences are seeking an easy way to create submission ready PDFs, in accordance with the different local regulatory requirements”, adding that “the need for content conversion capabilities is growing: preparing content for archiving; and automating correspondence tracking processes being two such use cases. This partnership with Generis will allow us to streamline previously disjointed processes for our customers and maximize their investment with us.”
