AUSTIN, Texas — December 2019 — Aztec Technologies, Inc, a leading manufacturing automation and information management firm focused on the life sciences sector, announced a strategic partnership today with Austin-based CherryCircle Software, Inc., developers of the QbDVision knowledge management solution for life sciences. QbDVision is a powerful, cloud-based platform to facilitate robust manufacturing process development in the pharmaceutical industry.
This partnership enables Aztec to implement the QbDVision platform on behalf of its life sciences customers and assist them in bridging the knowledge gap by providing critical transparency between R&D, process development, manufacturing, and commercialization.
“Through QbDVision, Aztec’s manufacturing clients can effectively structure and track multiple dimensions of information driving process understanding and simplifying tech transfer throughout the development lifecycle,” said Yash Sabharwal, President and CEO of CherryCircle Software. “This partnership will drive adoption of our platform and bring needed digital maturity for successful implementation of Pharma 4.0 and a successful transition to commercial manufacturing. ”
The biotech, pharmaceuticals, and medical device industries need a streamlined, comprehensive solution that automates quality-by-design and data integrity by design. This requires moving away from manually intensive paper and spreadsheet-based processes often used in the development or manufacturing stages. QbDVision is a user-friendly system that promotes collaboration and alleviates multiple pain points related to process transparency and understanding.
“We recognized the need for a knowledge management solution to eliminate data silos and support product life-cycle management. A solution to ‘connecting the dots’ between process design, process characterization, technology transfer, and qualification of commercial production is key to helping our clients increase the efficiency of bringing products to market” said Roop Kumar, President and CEO of Aztec. “Aztec believes QbDVision is the right product to support achieving these goals and through this partnership, we will be able to support our clients more effectively.”
Quality by Design (QbD) is a systematic approach to pharmaceutical development and manufacturing that emphasizes product and process understanding and knowledge, quality risk management, and process control. Promoted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and other international regulatory bodies for process development and validation, QbD is a foundational framework supporting Industry 4.0 principles of science and data-driven development for the pharmaceutical industry.
