POMS Corporation is considered one of the industry leaders in MES software. Their users span 20 countries and over 120 installations, making it one of the most widely used MES solutions in Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology, Consumer Packaged Goods and other regulated industries.
Prior to ByteGrid, POMS had been searching for a cloud solution provider that could securely host their POMSnet MES software solution. Several POMS clients had also inquired if they were planning to move to a cloud delivery model, but had concerns about satisfying GxP requirements.
Under terms of the compliant managed hosting services agreement, ByteGrid provides POMS, and their clients, with a complete managed hosting solution delivered to POMS clients in a cloud business model. Services include provisioning, validation documentation (SCS, RAQS, IQ and summary reports), managing daily monitoring, documented change control processes, audit transparency and support. In addition, POMS is evaluating ByteGrid's validated offsite backup and other services to cover compliance, security and maintenance for its clients' solutions.
"The challenge we face in offering our product as a validated cloud solution is the same that nearly every Life Science and Healthcare company using or selling IT applications must address," said Darrell Tanner, Director of Global Sales and Marketing at POMS Corporation. "We work in a highly regulated industry with special needs when it comes to quality, compliance and audit transparency and finding a hosting provider that understands FDA regulations was the most important element for POMS. ByteGrid checked all the boxes when it came to managed hosting and cloud solutions meeting FDA standards and is the perfect fit for our POMSnet MES software solution."
"We are excited to be selected to provide the comprehensive validated hosting solution for POMS and its customers," said Michael Duckett, CEO of ByteGrid. "Today, there over 120 validated sites and more than 25,000 POMS MES users across 20 countries, making POMS MES one of the most widely used MES solutions in the healthcare industries that include pharmaceutical, bio-pharmaceutical, and medical devices. ByteGrid's selection by POMS further substantiates our unique, integrated capabilities associated with our Compliance as a Service (CAAS) product set."
In addition, ByteGrid recently expanded the availability of highly compliant Life and Health Science hosting platform to ByteGrid's Seattle, Chicago and Silver Spring, MD (Washington DC) data centers. These ByteGrid locations have been formally qualified to offer the highest levels of technology, security and compliance of any national IT infrastructure services provider.
Overall, ByteGrid delivers services from eight data centers in six geographically dispersed markets encompassing more than 700,000 square feet of premier multi-tenant colocation data center space and meeting the highest standards for security and reliability.
