Enhanced trend reports include 3D charts as well as an expanded report gallery reflecting changes in regulatory guidance.
At the same time, there is an Excel® plug-in that allows a direct, secure connection to the MODA-EM™ software for ad hoc trending and statistical analysis.
MODA™ Version 3.1 features numerous customer-driven usability enhancements, including SOP linkage to document management systems, once-per-session data entry with color-coded compliance checks for sampling and lab activities, and new automatic trending notification features based on new industry guidance on environmental monitoring.
The MODA™ API (application programming interface) allows the development of applications that integrate with MODA™. It provides connections to existing systems with no end user interaction required.
The web service API facilitates data exchange with widely adopted enterprise systems commonly seen in Pharmaceutical and Biotech organizations, such as continuous monitoring systems, ERP, LIMS, and maintenance/calibration systems.
Many new particle counters and lab devices have been added to MODA-EM™ supported device list.
Version 3.1 supports multiple languages (English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Czech, Japanese and Portuguese–Brazil) and offers the framework to quickly and easily add additional languages.
