We’ve worked with many big brands in this sector – such as Baxter Healthcare, GE Healthcare, Mentor, and Tiopharma – to implement IBM Maximo within their business. With this first-hand experience, combined with our in-depth knowledge of the software, we are able to configure solutions to meet the needs of the business.
Managing the challenges
With our ability to configure an industry-leading off-the-shelf product, we can create a solution that meets the specific needs of your business, while reducing overall lifecycle costs.
Operating in this heavily regulated sector means containing costs and reducing risk while staying compliant to strict industry standards. But by working closely with our clients, we have achieved this and more.
Our EAM solution Maximo is recognised by the FDA as being CFR 21 part 11 compliant, meaning it can be used for storing electronic maintenance and calibration of records for periods of more than 10 years.
What’s more, in addition to its standard functionality, Maximo for Life Sciences includes Maximo for Calibration as well as testing and validation scripts – specifically developed to support the calibration of instruments used within pharma manufacturing and testing processes.
