Projectfusion is used to securely manage and version control sensitive client documents. The following is a case study from a leading Pharma firm’s VP of Operations.
I am a user experienced over many years in the Pharma industry with the mainstream providers of data rooms for programme management and latterly as a company data room. I switched to PROJECTFUSION and have used it as both a Pharma Regulatory documentation repository as well as a corporate data room. This move has enhanced both our operational effectiveness through improved remote access and our ability to provide data when needed for due diligence requirements.
The data room is a cost effective and intuitive data repository that has coped well with both huge regulatory documents, often 250-300MB in size and folders of many Gigabytes. It offers clear descriptions, searching facilities and access enabling rapid sourcing of documents. Searches can be done at the simple level by typing in criteria or by using metadata to define search words. In practice the simple search is normally adequate for my needs.
“Documents can easily be transferred between sites and companies using the data room, with version control ensuring that updates are well controlled and secure.”
Regulatory documents can easily be transferred between sites and companies using the data room, with version control ensuring that updates are well controlled and secure. The data room copes well with the document size and complexity of a dossier and the search facility in particular enables those in the company less familiar with the CTD structure to access what they need.
The normal web browser access is well controlled and can be managed down to individual folder level which is essential when you operate in a virtual environment with many different suppliers accessing the data room or for use when due diligence is being conducted. The diligence can of course be done remotely saving much time and money. A useful feature is reporting of the data room access where all users’ usage can be monitored – particularly useful during a diligence process.

One bonus is that access to PROJECTFUSION via an iPad is so easy. Both downloading & uploading being simple, fast & intuitive wherever you are. Yet another good reason to ditch the laptop and move to a data room!
