Cork, Ireland – May 15, 2012 - QUMAS today announced that Samsung Bioepis has selected QUMAS ComplianceSP on Microsoft SharePoint 2010 to manage all of its regulatory documents following an extensive vendor evaluation process. Samsung Bioepis is a joint venture between Samsung Biologics and Biogen Idec to develop, manufacture, and market biosimilars. Both Samsung Biologics and Biogen Idec are existing QUMAS customers, and are displaying their commitment to and satisfaction with QUMAS in their selection of ComplianceSP for their new joint venture.
