AgileMD Supports Product Lifecycle Management and Regulatory Compliance Demands at Global Medical Device Company
"Haemonetics is strategically focused on profitable growth and operational excellence, and we wanted to work with a PLM solution provider that will enable us to meet our goals," said Robert Ebbeling, Haemonetics' vice president of operations. "We selected Agile because it offers a comprehensive PLM solution built on industry best practices. With AgileMD, we have the ability to manage the product record of the various medical devices in our portfolio throughout their lifecycles-from research and development through regulatory approval, new product introduction and end-of-life."
"We considered several PLM solutions and selected Agile because of the breadth of the solution and Agile's proven experience with numerous other medical device customers," said Dottie Barr, Haemonetics' director of business process development. "Because AgileMD is designed specifically for our industry, no customization was needed, and with Agile's proven track record and domain expertise, we experienced a very smooth deployment and validation."
"Medical device manufacturers have special profitability constraints that result from the unique demands of regulatory compliance, here in the United States with the FDA, and with numerous other local, regional and international regulatory agencies," said Bryan Stolle, Agile CEO. "Agile PLM solutions have been built to simplify regulatory compliance, optimize processes throughout the product lifecycle, and enable a closed-loop complaint handling CAPA system-functions that align well with Haemonetics' priorities."
