Connectria Provides Managed Software as a Service (SaaS) Hosting For QUMAS To Ensure Rapid ROI Without IT Overhead Costs

ST. LOUIS, MO (August 22, 2006) - Connectria Corporation has announced that it will provide 'Software as a Service' (SaaS) Managed Hosting for QUMAS, the leading developer of enterprise governance, risk and compliance solutions. The Software as a Service (SaaS) offering of QUMAS Compliance SuiteT, an end-to-end solution for managing government and regulatory compliance, will provide life sciences firms an additional option when determining how to best comply with industry regulations, while efficiently managing IT resources. QUMAS Compliance Suite as a hosted software solution provides a 'fast track' for customers to be up and running quickly and achieves a rapid return-on-investment as companies strive to manage compliance-related activities. Connectria will offer data center services, including Managed Hosting of QUMAS Compliance Suite and providing 24/7 support to QUMAS customers.

"Regulatory compliance is an unavoidable reality for all life sciences companies," said Ken Hayward, senior vice president of life sciences for QUMAS. "However, regardless of size, and for a variety of reasons, some Life Sciences organizations may prefer to focus on their core competencies, rather than apply resources to owning and managing enterprise software. QUMAS sees a competitive advantage in that philosophy and is offering QUMAS Compliance Suite as a hosted solution, enabling customers to quickly realize the benefits of compliance software."

QUMAS is a leading developer of enterprise compliance management solutions designed to help life sciences organizations meet industry and government standards for 21 CFR Part 11, cGxP, Quality, Regulatory Affairs and Clinical Operations. With over a decade of experience, QUMAS is helping companies accelerate business processes, reduce costs and improve quality. From content lifecycle management, business process and change management to reporting and analysis, QUMAS' Compliance Suite is successfully enabling global life science organizations to proactively manage their regulated content and processes in a secure and compliant way.

The QUMAS Compliance Suite enables life science companies to effectively manage the creation, review, approval and revision of the content; efficiently interact with submission management systems; and, ease the process for handling Process Change Control, Adverse Events and other data-centric requirements. The QUMAS web-based application suite enables organisations to consolidate and manage their regulatory compliance requirements through a configurable enterprise software suite. Accessed through the CompliancePortalT, which provides a role-based point of access, the Compliance Suite includes two complete software applications -- DocComplianceT and ProcessComplianceT.
