Formpipe and Sigma partnership

By Hilary Stephenson | 19/06/2013

Building on over ten years of successful collaboration projects in the Nordic region, Sigma and Formpipe have invested in a joint initiative to extend the solid partnership in the UK and Ireland, with Sigma working as the preferred licence reseller, implementation and support partner for the Formpipe Life Science product.

Formpipe Life Science is a powerful, flexible and modular Enterprise Quality and Document Management System (EQMS) that meets industry compliance requirements and provides control in regulated environments for quality and continuous process improvement. Formpipe Life Science provides pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device, contract research organisations (CROs) and contract manufacturing organisations (CMOs) with a highly flexible framework to streamline quality management. The solution gives users a set of targeted tools for managing quality in an end-to-end manner, throughout the product lifecycle. Increasingly, it is being used to manage operations and mitigate risk in relation to regulatory compliance and product quality.

Built specifically for the Life Science industry, the solution integrates key processes including:

  • Regulated Document Management – SOP control for supporting work instructions, guidelines, templates and output reports
  • Support for the CAPA process – capturing observations, adverse events and audit findings with workflows that integrate the various phases of the CAPA process
  • Employee Training Management – logging that proper training is conducted by appropriate staff with auditable training records with direct links to SOPs and users within the system
  • Deviation, Change Control and customer complaint tracking and reporting
  • A versatile approach to connecting users, roles, functions, assets, equipment, documents, processes and events, such that a full audit trail can be held within the system
  • Ability to configure and create workflows that trigger real time alerts, email notifications, process approvals and electronic signatures in compliance with FDA Part 11 and EU Annex 11 industry regulatory requirements
