NEWS - Leading Sports Equipment Manufacturer Chooses MasterControl™

SALT LAKE CITY - May 28, 2009 - MasterControl Inc., a global provider of software solutions that enable regulated companies to get their products to market faster, while reducing overall costs and increasing internal efficiency, today announced that Black Diamond Equipment, a global leader in the climbing and freeride ski markets, has selected MasterControl software to automate its document control and training record management processes and to implement more robust corrective and preventive actions (CAPA) and nonconformance systems.

Before installing MasterControl's software solution, Black Diamond Equipment used a paper-based document review system, which meant that documents had to be manually routed for review and signing. As an ISO-certified international company, Black Diamond needed a way to electronically consolidate all its documents to meet ISO requirements.

"In today's global economy, Black Diamond needed a system that would seamlessly integrate our document-related processes for our different locations. MasterControl is helping us connect our worldwide operations and improve our time to market for new products," says George Jamison, Black Diamond's engineering support services director.

MasterControl's integrated software solution allows life sciences and other manufacturing companies to meet and exceed strict FDA requirements and meet ISO quality standards.
