Good Products has released its Validation Project Management tool, ValMan.
This software helps life sciences organisations to store and manage validation protocols and test plans, enabling compliance with the strict regulations governing the industry.
ValMan is available as part of the g-docs suite, which is designed to streamline document management. It allows users to manage multiple validation projects in a clear and organised format, with the status of each of the products visible on a high level portfolio page.
The ValMan software tool allows documents and activities for specific projects to be stored in separate secure areas, while a set of predetermined workflow templates facilitates effective project management. Version control of all documents is carried out within ValMan and approved documents are published to a separate library for added user convenience. Product training is minimal as users are already familiar with the web browser environment of the g-docs platform and once ValMan is implemented, administrators control the ability to configure future libraries, templates and workflows.
ValMan customers can choose from a database of more than 5,000 validation template documents covering facilities, cleaning, manufacturing equipment, laboratory equipment and computerised systems for biopharma, laboratory and clinical organisations to pre-populate their validation document libraries.
ValMan also contains pre-configured project workflows, although companies' existing templates, responsibility matrices, protocol review and approval workflows can also be entered quickly into the system. Within ValMan, documents are stored on the g-docs MOSS 2007 platform and can be easily integrated with existing software systems, such as training management and learning management systems. Electronic documents and protocol deviation forms can be easily digitally signed using the CoSign digital signature solution.
