SourceSolution, a provider of supplier relationship management (SRM) software for the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, has implemented its partner portal solution PlanIt for Vivante GMP Solutions.
Vivante is a contract manufacturing organisation (CMO) in the production of GMP-grade viral vectors and vaccine products.
Vivante said that by offering access to a partner portal, Vivante will be able to offer its clients an additional resource for managing critical project activities and for securely sharing sensitive project information.
SourceSolution said that PlanIt allows companies to manage projects with internal teams and external partners more efficiently, without the expense associated with purchasing and maintaining additional servers.
Team members are able to securely access project information through any browser to share documents. The system tracks all document versions and timestamps them ensuring that all team members have access to the most recent version of a document.
Additionally, the system includes budget tracking tools, task management features and a project communication messaging center. PlanIt is a customizable, fully branded system that can be launched in less than a day.
Premila Anand, founder and CEO of SourceSolution, said: Most biotech and pharma projects are managed using tools like Microsoft Project, which work well for tracking projects. On many teams, only a few members have access to the software or know how to use it, requiring project managers to rely on email and other disparate systems to track tasks and documents.
PlanIt offers project teams a system that is easy to implement and use to track day to day project activities. We are confident that PlanIt will organise communications, document and tasks, thereby improving the likelihood of project success.
David Enloe, president and CEO of Vivante GMP Solutions, said: PlanIt is one of the tools we’ve implemented that will allow us to more effectively communicate with our clients, many of whom have project team members located in numerous locations around the world.
