GlobalVision Adds Electronic Signatures for Enhanced Data Integrity to Most Comprehensive Platform Yet

by Ryan Szporer

With regulations increasing exponentially in importance, GlobalVision has responded to customers’ calls for greater control over data integrity by introducing electronic signatures into the fold.

By further addressing quality control professionals’ needs to meet FDA 21 CFR Part 11 compliance as a result, GlobalVision 5.1 for desktops is primed to exceed expectations. Whereas electronic signatures deliver enhanced transparency, other new features like the highly anticipated additions of Text and Spelling modes round out the offering for in-depth inspections that cover all your bases.

In short, top new features include:

  • Electronic signatures for greater transparency,
  • The ability to save scans to the Audit Trail for references purposes, and
  • Text and Spelling modes, making GlobalVision 5.1 a one-stop shop for all inspection types.

 

Electronic Signatures

With the integration of electronic signatures, administrators can control the system’s extensive record-keeping more thoroughly. When checked on, the feature forces the logged-in user to enter their credentials before generating a report, which gets signed with the appropriate name. In the application’s Audit Trail, reports can also be approved or rejected via much the same security mechanism, allowing companies to take greater advantage of the platform’s enhanced traceability.

 

Save Original Scans

The application’s traceability is enhanced even more by the ability to automatically save original scans. Previously scanned masters and samples saved to the database can be viewed by users with administrative privileges in the Audit Trail to help preserve data integrity to a greater extent. In addition, the time stamp of the scan and the name of the user who scanned the image are also recorded directly in the Audit Trail, accompanying the file for reference purposes.

Text and Spelling Inspection Mode

The release’s heightened functionality extends to inspections with the introduction of Text and Spelling to the all-in-one platform. With support for a variety of file types, Text compares documents with radically different layouts. For example, the accuracy of a printer’s proof in any language as a PDF compared to the text in an internally approved Microsoft® Word® document.

Spelling meanwhile, checks a loaded PDF, Word, HTML, or Adobe® Illustrator® doc against any one of 37 dictionaries. Each is customizable with company-specific terms to prevent false positives in future inspections, while every file also gets run against the onboard medical dictionary to verify drug terminology and ingredient lists for an extra degree of protection against potentially costly typos.

Additional updates:

  • Automatic removal of QRD (Quality Review of Documents) headers without having to create custom templates.
  • Advanced Table Logic to efficiently inspect tables with different cell formats.
  • Automatic Resync to enable post-processing difference detection.
  • Improved file-loading speed.

Resulting in added value and an unparalleled convenience factor, this release marks the first time all GlobalVision desktop modules have been combined in one platform.
