U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Selects Quality Management System (QMS) Software Solution from MasterControl and i4DM

SALT LAKE CITY, UT, USA - October 29, 2009 - MasterControl, a global provider of software solutions that enable regulated companies to improve internal efficiency and reduce overall costs while accelerating time to market, announced today that the company and i4DM, a MasterControl partner, have been selected as the software provider and implementation team of a quality management system (QMS) for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

After an extensive evaluation of industry solution providers, the FDA's Office of Regulatory Affairs (ORA) selected MasterControl’s quality management software solution to be used by their agencies that are engaged in field investigations enforcement, and scientific laboratory analysis of field samples. The system will be implemented across the United States, in regional offices, district offices, laboratories, and headquarters.  The FDA’s implementation phase will consist of the configuration of MasterControl's quality management system solution to improve ORA's vital quality processes, including:

Jonathan Beckstrand, MasterControl CEO said, "Given the thoroughness of the FDA’s evaluation process it is particularly exciting to have been selected. We are very pleased that the FDA recognizes the quality of our QMS solution and our absolute commitment to the success of this project. Together with i4DM, our domain expertise and industry experience will create a solid, long-term solution for the FDA.”

Contributing factors that made MasterControl’s quality management system a great fit for the FDA included its flexibility, functionality, and the cooperation, knowledge, and professional willingness of MasterControl personnel to support the success of the project.

Partnering for Success

i4DM will provide program management and security consulting services and will serve as the integration expert after the initial installation/configuration, integrating the QMS system with seven or more legacy systems within the Agency.

Mike Peart, i4DM’s CEO said, "We're very excited that the FDA selected us for this significant project.  We look forward to working with both the FDA and MasterControl for a smooth and successful implementation that will help the FDA automate many of their core quality systems."

"i4DM has the expertise in software integration consulting for large organizations that this job requires and MasterControl has the software solution," said Michael Bothe, MasterControl's vice president for strategic alliances.
