Lorenz launches new Documentum interface for docuBridge.com in Europe!



Barcelona: On March 7, 2001 Lorenz Archiv-Systeme GmbH announced to its customers and prospects the European launch of its new software docuBridge.com 3.2 with interface to Documentum.

Documentum is the leading Content Management System in the pharmaceutical sector to manage scientific documents for Drug Regulatory Affairs. docuBridge.com is the state-of-the-art Submission Management System to compile and publish dossiers and complex reports. The interface provides direct access to documents and VDMs in Documentum 3.x and Documentum 4i.

This new combination enables docuBridge.com to be implemented as a specialized 'out of the box' application of Documentum.

The first installation at Bayer’s R&D in Wuppertal, Germany has shown that the smooth integration with the current Documentum installation will enhance the electronic assembling and production of submissions for pharmaceutical product registration.

The demonstration of the new version to a number of clients proved to be a huge success.

"With this enhancement to our new generation of software we are able to capture most of the complex processes within a regulatory affairs department as well as the authorities. These include the management features, the review & QA processes as well as the publishing tasks - paper and eSub (e.g. European or FDA Guidance)," says Akira Yamaguchi, Director of Sales and Marketing.

Wolfgang Witzel, Executive Partner, added: "The reaction of our clients and prospects has shown that we have successfully used our experience in a highly focused niche market and produced an application second to none. The potential benefits for companies, small or large, implementing such a system are enormous."
