One mainframe computer tools/applications/forms provider charges $199 per month per user. That is about $10,000 per month for 50 users. But, the real expense is the time to enter data into, manage, extract and communicate data from their 23 separate tools/applications/forms. This data is then copied, pasted, paraphrased, maybe corrupted and sent to stakeholders and team members.
(for 50 users per month) $10,000.
Dedicated staff, expensive.
FDA recalls, really expensive.
Menlo Park Project is just one application. Data just needs to be entered once. It is then shared by all team members on the project over the internet or an intranet. There is only one version of any data. It is always up to date and original. Snapshots can be taken at any time and used to update history files or keep stakeholders informed.
Fewer dedicated compliance staff.
Reduced recall chances. Priceless.
