SOP Management

SOP Management

Compliant document management from creation, release and distribution to archiving.
XERI™ provides employees of GxP-regulated companies with structured and targeted access to all documents relevant to them.

Manage, control and sign SOPs in accordance with GMP.

Simple. Safe. Time and cost saving.

The manual management of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and accompanying documents presents companies with major challenges. Monitoring deadlines, validity and ensuring document availability is becoming a serious problem as revision and distribution cycles become shorter and shorter and document volumes increase. XERI™ is the ideal platform for the electronic management of SOP documents. It maps the entire SOP lifecycle as a customizable workflow and fully meets the requirements for long-term archiving, electronic signature and audit trail. Working with XERI™ thus ensures that the same process flows are always maintained and that they are documented in an audit-proof manner.

Your benefits.

  • Traceability of decisions or adjustments due to complete logging of all accesses
