SALT LAKE CITY - September 24, 2008- MasterControl Inc., a global provider of GxP process and document management software solutions for the life science and manufacturing industries, today announced that ATC Logistics & Electronics (ATCLE) has chosen the MasterControl solution suite to replace its current document management system.
ATCLE, a subsidiary of ATC Technology Corporation, provides customized supply chain solutions for high-velocity devices in the wireless, broadband, electronics, and automotive industries. Many of today's Fortune 100 companies rely on ATCLE to streamline their supply chain efficiencies and enhance their opportunity to grow profitably. The MasterControl Suite will be deployed in ATCLE's Fort Worth and Carrollton locations.
"We currently use a manual system to control our documents," says Terry Fillner, ISO Program Manager." Implementation of MasterControl will allow us to reduce our costs associated with this manual process, while at the same time, strengthen our compliance to ISO, SAS70, and Trade Compliance requirements."
" The flexibility of MasterControl's document control product's software gives us the ability to configure it to our business structure," Fillner added. "Other features like approval routing, collaboration, and electronic signatures will help us to reduce our document approval turn around."
In an ATCLE employee newsletter, Fillner describes how workflows will be improved with the MasterControl solution. "MasterControl is web-based and will help connect all employees involved in document and quality control from virtually anywhere. This tool will streamline our current control procedures and reduce the amount of time and manpower used to process our documents. Hard copies will no longer be needed as everything will be processed electronically. Cycle time from document creation to publication will be greatly reduced with automated approval, release, and archiving of documents.

MasterControl facilitates compliance management by automating and managing document and change control, training management, audits, corrective/preventive action (CAPA), customer complaints, nonconformance disposition, deviation handling`, electronic batch record (EBR) management, and other GxP processes critical to regulatory compliance.
