Document Change Control Software

The most important element of an EDMS is its document change control capability. Every organization produces and manages tens of thousands of documents in the course of their business. All of these documents have their own unique life cycle and must be managed in a compliant manner.

QUMAS Document Change Control process provides the features and the flexibility to manage different types of documents with varying degrees of control on the change process. Documents can have a very light change control or documents can be heavily controlled. The degree of control is purely driven by the configuration chosen by the business.

In addition, Document Workflows ensure that each document is controlled in a compliant manner with serial and parallel workflows that support quorums and vetoes.

Collaborative Review of Content

Regardless of whether the project is internal or external, Pharma/Bios operate in an environment that requires them to collaborate on content within their own organization, across all the function areas such as research, trials management, manufacturing, and vendor management as well as their business partners. Sharing this content in a secure controlled environment has proven challenging in the past. QUMAS Collaborative Review functionality allows for multiple reviewers (internal and external) to collaborate on a document in parallel, ensuring a faster, more complete review of the content.

The collaborative review capabilities provided by QUMAS offer the following:

  • Web-based “real-time” collaboration – See live changes as they are being made and respond to other user’s changes and comments as you are working
  • Ability to have more than one reviewer collaborating on “track changes” to a document - Parallel collaborative reviewing
  • Review initiator/author still has control of accepting or rejecting changes – The best of both worlds, track changes and annotations
  • Collaborate on Controlled Documents with External Authors – both internal and external authors can collaborate without giving access to external users to the broader EDMS system
