"With our industry software, companies already receive consistent, integrated support out-of-the-box to master the regulatory requirements of MDR, ISO 13485 and FDA," explains Wolfgang Renner, Head of Medical Technology and Healthcare Market. The industry software specialist has further expanded the inclusion of the document management system (DMS). Companies manage e.g. B. Drawings, approval documents, certificates of conformity, supplier verifications, certificates or operating instructions in a central location, which ensures a traceable assignment down to the component level. Documents flow into the document management system over the entire product life cycle, for example test orders, visit reports, proof of repairs or documentation as part of FMEA and CAPA measures. KUMAVISION thus establishes a single point of view that includes all areas of the company. The documents required for audits can be made available practically at the push of a button. In addition, KUMAVISION will offer automated uploading to online portals for remote audits and approvals.
