Medical Device Manufacturer TranS1 Goes Live With FourthShift Edition for SAP Business One

Manufacturing Processes Successfully FDA-Validated During Implementation

MINNEAPOLIS, May 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Medical device manufacturer TranS1 has gone live with SoftBrands' FourthShift Edition for SAP Business One as its manufacturing ERP system. SoftBrands, Inc. , a global supplier of enterprise application software, is a global ISV partner of SAP AG.

Based in Wilmington, N.C., TranS1 develops, manufactures and distributes products used in minimally invasive surgical procedures to treat low-back pain. The FourthShift Edition installation helps ensure TranS1's manufacturing processes comply with Food and Drug Administration regulations.

"Executing the validation of FourthShift Edition as part of the roll-out, rather than afterward, let us reduce our regulatory risk and get to work right away," said Rick Randall, president and CEO of TranS1. "The FourthShift team made the validation process quick and painless."

The FourthShift Edition validation process models the FDA Quality Systems Inspection Technique (QSIT) to help ensure that the business system as implemented meets the requirements of regulated companies. The FourthShift Edition validation program is also "risk-managed." It identifies the critical points at which FourthShift functions and data records intersect with specific cGMP regulatory requirements and focuses documentation and audit/test coverage at those intersections, rather than giving equal attention to each FourthShift Edition function.

In conjunction with FourthShift Edition, TranS1 will run the global alerts application FourthShift VisiWatch, an event-driven system that lets manufacturers monitor important events and respond without manual intervention. FourthShift VisiWatch can extract, transform and import data from and to various sources, and its VBA-compliant scripting engine enables event responses to be customized for each company's specific business needs.

"FourthShift Edition has the lot trace, security and auditing features that we need from our ERP system," Randall said. "SoftBrands' Validation Service gave us the peace of mind that our business system is operating as intended."
