Hand-written data entry in paper logbooks is error-prone and requires enormous time and effort. Associate spend hundreds of hours generating, reviewing and approving logs, then waste more time trying to retrieve the information, which is often stored in different physical locations, during audits and inspections.

Compliance Risk
  • FDA 483 Threat - Inaccurate paper logbooks can lead to deviations, Form 483 observations, warning letters, and even regulatory fines and sanctions
  • High probability of human errors - Mistakes are inevitable because of the sheer volume of information maintained in log
Operational Inefficiency
  • Reduced Productivity - It's time-consuming to physically (and methodically) record the date, time, product and lot number of each batch for equipment usage logs. Logging the required cleaning data is equally tedious. Manual log management takes a severe toll on productivity
  • No Insights - There is no structured data available for analysis and performance improvement. Data compilation is tedious
