AODocs Named in the Gartner Hype Cycle for Life Science Research and Development, 2020

AODocs Cited as a Sample Vendor in the Clinical Development Automation Category

ATLANTA, September 03, 2020 -- AODocs, one of the fastest-growing content services platform providers, announced it was recognized as a Sample Vendor in the Gartner Hype Cycle for Life Science Research and Development, 2020. AODocs was cited in the Clinical Development Automation category.

According to Gartner, clinical development automation uses off-the-shelf process design and automation tools, such as robotic process automation (RPA) or business process modeling (BPM), to optimize processes in clinical development.

The report states, “Life science companies should run proofs of concept (POCs) with RPA and BPM that include simple process design and repetitive workflow tasks and see that the tool works. These projects should proceed from there with the selection of a common platform and move into POC and implementation when project assessment determines a good fit. Common benefits include reduction in resource percentage FTE, improved data entry accuracy, reductions in task completion time, and process simplification.”

Built on the Google Cloud Platform, AODocs for Life Sciences leverages automated software validation to address FDA and GxP compliance while reducing costs and manual processes. AODocs provides a modern quality management system (QMS) that is intuitive, secure, and allows for the creation, management, and sharing of all life sciences-related content.

"Life sciences companies are racing to become more agile and lean, and to modernize their technology stack to help automate and optimize clinical development processes," said Stéphane Donzé, CEO of AODocs. “AODocs for Life Sciences solves the conundrum of being agile in a heavily regulated environment by providing a user friendly QMS platform, with continuous validation and fast paced innovation.”
