Solution leverages industry-leading scientific informatics platform, delivering up to 25 percent productivity improvement, 50 percent decrease in cycle times and reduced compliance risks.

Accelrys, Inc., a leading provider of scientific innovation lifecycle management software, has announced the new integrated Accelrys Process Management and Compliance Suite of software products designed specifically to enhance product and process insight, facilitate collaboration and streamline product development from research through late-stage quality control and manufacturing. By improving the way businesses manage the scientific innovation lifecycle, the suite helps bring products to market faster and at a lower cost, while meeting critical quality and regulatory compliance objectives.

"Companies that rely on science to innovate continue to struggle with quickly and cost-effectively transforming good ideas into successful products," said Accelrys president and chief executive officer Max Carnecchia. "The unified approach to product development and process execution offered by the Accelrys Process Management and Compliance Suite provides a transformative path forward for organizations demanding new ways to accelerate innovation and retain competitive advantages."

The Accelrys Process Management and Compliance Suite directly integrates with systems critical to development and manufacturing processes such as laboratory information management systems (LIMS), enterprise resource planning (ERP), product lifecycle management (PLM) and manufacturing execution systems (MES). The ability to leverage existing applications and infrastructure, combined with the features of the Accelrys Process Management and Compliance Suite, offers organizations for the first time a single, unified source for harmonizing critical-path data and meeting the "right-first-time" needs of downstream manufacturing. The insights gained from the suite enhance reporting, decision making, knowledge management and operational excellence from lab to commercialization.

The Accelrys Process Management and Compliance Suite is the result of Accelrys' 2012 acquisition of VelQuest Corporation with its industry-leading paperless lab execution and data capture technology. The integrated suite comprises:

Accelrys Enterprise Platform
Accelrys Lab Execution System
Accelrys Electronic Lab Notebook (formerly Symyx Notebook by Accelrys)
Accelrys Electronic Batch Records

"For too long lab-to-market value chain processes have been managed by an outmoded combination of disconnected point solutions, paper notebooks and home-grown tools, creating a productivity gap that has slowed innovation," said Ken Rapp, managing director of Accelrys' analytical, development, quality and manufacturing solutions. "The Accelrys Process Management and Compliance Suite changes that paradigm. By combining the capabilities of an electronic lab notebook, lab execution system and an enterprise scientific informatics platform, Accelrys brings a holistic approach to solving common and costly operational challenges ranging from production quality issues and regulatory violations to shrinking margins."

Integration of the Accelrys Process Management and Compliance Suite with the Accelrys Enterprise Platform enables lifecycle aggregation, analytics and comprehensive reporting across the continuum from discovery to manufacturing, supporting Six Sigma and Quality by Design (QbD) programs and International Conference on Harmonization (ICH) initiatives in pharmacovigilance and risk management.

The Accelrys Process Management and Compliance Suite supports scientists working in early and mid-stage analytical, formulation and process/bioprocess development all the way through to stability, material and release testing during late-stage quality control and commercial production. By ensuring seamless technology transfer at the crucial research, development, pilot and manufacturing handoffs, the suite enables the rapid and accurate transfer of methods, recipes and procedures captured during early development into automated execution. As a result, customers have reported that they are experiencing up to 25 percent productivity improvement while cutting cycle times in half and reducing compliance risks.
