London, UK – June 17th, 2022 - Generis, the creator of CARA™, the data and content management platform that helps companies in regulated industries transform their complex business processes, has announced more impressive milestones as the international life sciences industry spearheads rapid adoption of the one-stop, unified, cloud-based platform for managing critical data, content, and business processes across multiple functions.
Since its launch of the new-generation cloud-based SaaS version of CARA, and of CARA Life Sciences as a pre-configured layer on top of the platform, Generis has seen a sea change in the diversity of its customer base. Now, alongside major global brands such as Merck and Pfizer, mid- and lower-tier pharma companies are taking up CARA due to its limitless potential to transform processes and data/document management across multiple functions – from Clinical Trial Management to Safety/Pharmacovigilance and Quality/QMS.
Over the last 12-18 months, Generis has clocked up a series of impressive new milestones:
“Often companies come to us for one use case, but then they see everything else they could be doing via our one-user/one-license platform and they’re like kids in a candy store,” comments James Kelleher, Generis’s CEO and Founder. “We show them a slide illustrating all of the applications and business cases we serve via CARA, and before long they’re marking it up like a takeaway menu with all of the options they’re interested in.
“They love the whole idea of just having to enter data once, knowing that they can re-use it confidently across multiple use cases, always assured that the source material is correct and consistent,” James continues. “Everything across our platform uses the same single information lake. That’s what sets CARA apart from other so-called platforms: there are no silos; there is no re-entry of the latest product data from one application to another.
“That’s very powerful for impact assessment too – so if something changes at a manufacturing site, teams can see all of the ramifications with a single button click – instead of via several weeks of function-by-function detective work. Before now, this has been a huge struggle for companies.”
Of CARA Life Sciences’ soaring adoption in the sizeable Japanese market, James says, “As pharma companies here talk to each other about upcoming system renewals, news of CARA is spreading quickly. Japanese pharma companies appreciate our local language support, and value our user interface which can be tailored for each market. In Japan, where detail is prized, CARA can provide that on the home screen.”
“We also plan to add an enterprise-wide feature for structured content authoring, and to continue to get across the message about CARA’s potential to more fluidly create documents from master data, and distil and re-use important, detailed data from verified documents. This will help life sciences companies prepare for IDMP and DADI submissions compliance in Europe.”
In the meantime, Generis continues to play an active role in moving on industry discussions about the interplay of data, content, and extended business processes in life sciences through its Big Debate event series. The next Big Debate, which will be announced shortly, brings together respected visionaries and industry leaders to discuss data ‘ownership’ and governance as more weight is assigned to a single master source of approved, reusable assets.
