The software, branded as InstantGMP Pro, helps supplement firms institute and maintain Good Manufacturing Practices in their manufacturing facilities. One of the key parts of the software is a document management function, which has now been upgraded with the additional SOP templates, the company says.
InstantGMP helps manufacturers take the generation of documents fully into the digital realm. Its automated document generation and tracking functions replace the plethora of clipboards which are still a feature of some manufacturing facilities.
Creating more specific SOPs
A lack of adequate documentation has been one of the most often cited failures by FDA inspectors during GMP inspections. Key among these failures are a lack of SOPs for various procedures, or SOPs that are insufficiently detailed.
InstantGMP claims its new SOP update means that companies will no longer have to make do with overly generic templates. The 115 new templates will be better fit for purpose and won’t require the after the fact customization and guesswork implied with cruder templates, said Dr Richard Soltero, president of InstantGMP.
“InstantGMP’s Full PRO Standard Operating Procedures set helps manufacturing facilities lay the foundation for an effective quality system,” he said.
“Instead of relying on vague and generic templates, manufacturers now have access to fully realized SOPs that clearly and actively define the purpose, scope, and business requirements for each specific procedure, as well as identify all responsible parties and their respective action steps,” he added.
