Data Capture and Quality Management Solutions Reduce Paper, Risk and Costs while Ensuring Efficiency and Regulatory Compliance

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, USA and NEWTOWN, PA, USA - February 3, 2010 - MasterControl and GxP Partners, two companies offering software and services for document and quality management, have announced the next phase of their alliance to deliver solutions that will enable compliant information capture in regulated industries. Through this collaboration, GxP Partners will provide systems consulting plus implementation, data capture and validation services to existing and prospective MasterControl customers.

Compliant Capture™ combines intelligent scanning of paper documents, automatic document classification and automatic extraction of critical data from these documents with the least amount of human intervention. Compliant Capture reduces lost documents, captures data at the "point of origin," safeguards critical documents and makes relevant information available to other people or business processes. Paper documents, faxes, multimedia files, email, transactional files and forms can all be captured and the information delivered to regulatory-compliant systems via a process that is secure, auditable, time-stamped and monitored consistently for accuracy.

The partnership between MasterControl and GxP Partners furthers the MasterControl commitment to offering "less paper, less effort, and less risk" in document and quality management. Solutions provided by the partners will reduce the costs of filing and document storage, searching for paper files and performing duplicative data entry. They will also reduce the risk of non-compliance and missed opportunity during documentation management, forms processing, quality management and regulatory submissions as well as in the tracking of equipment calibration and training.
