RadBee Recognized as a JIRA and Confluence Expert
News Oct 13, 2015
RadBee Ltd, which specializes in providing software solutions for quality assurance in the medtech, biotech and pharmaceutical industries, has been approved as an Atlassian Expert. This means that RadBee is endorsed to sell licenses for the Atlassian JIRA and Confluence collaboration products to “unleash the potential in every team”. They can provide customer support in the form of project tailoring for Atlassian users; and they can create and sell plugins for the software.
RadBee helps life science companies to reduce their regulatory compliance burden by providing them with customized software solutions based on JIRA and Confluence. These software products enable them to streamline regulatory-documents and quality management processes.
JIRA is a tracking software that, when customized for life sciences quality assurance, makes it easier to manage corrective and preventive actions (CAPAs), nonconformities and customer issues, and to follow standard operating procedures (SOPs). Simple forms, rules and automatic escalations ensure regulatory compliance. Collaboration features help to get everyone in a company engaged with quality assurance (QA), and the intuitive dashboard and reporting show the bigger company picture, helping to highlight opportunities for improvement.
The Confluence collaboration platform enables clients to streamline their controlled document process. It allows multiple parties to work together to create better controlled documents, faster, and by keeping a record of all discussions about a document in one place, ideas and clarifications are easily accessed by users.
Rina Nir, Director of RadBee, commented: “Life science companies are spending significant operational costs on quality assurance, yet too often the time and effort being spent does not contribute to quality, operational excellence, or better products. By combining our understanding of Altassian’s powerful JIRA and Confluence tools with our expertise in the medtech, biotech and pharmaceutical industries, we implement transformative, easy-to-use and compliant quality management systems for our clients.”
Matthew Coughlan, Expert Partner Manager at Atlassian, said: “Although the Atlassian products were developed for the software development industry, 30% of our users are working outside this field, and that number is growing. RadBee are doing a fantastic job of tailoring our software products to meet the needs of the life science market, which is why we have approved the company as an Atlassian Expert.”
RadBee moved from Belgium to Cambridge in November 2011, and has recently taken up residency at St John’s Innovation Centre. Rina Nir added: “Cambridge has grown into one of the world’s leading life sciences hubs, and our services could support many on their journey to safeguard compliance and promote a culture of shared ownership of quality.”
Rina Nir founded RadBee in March 2014, as she saw a need to streamline the quality management processes within life science, biotech and pharmaceutical companies.
