Case studies

  • Client problem:
    A major USA based pharmaceuticals client contacted CommQP in 2012 to aid sourcing and assessing artwork origination studios for EU and Asia-Pac markets.

    CommQP solution:
    CommQP assessed the client recommended suppliers with inclusion of other options.  As a part of this project, eight artwork studios were audited for GXP compliance and suitability to meet client requirements.  Based on this work, the client selected a one supplier whom CommQP later were requested to train.  The project was successfully completed in time and on budget.

  • Client problem:
    The company's US sister unit was to be audited by a customer to potential supply of printed plates.  The site was not would not meet the required standard in it's current state.

    CommQP solution:
    CommQP conducted a GXP 'gap analysis' audit at US site and instigated a quality and pharmaceutical compliance improvement programme.  The site subsequently, passed the inspection (a pharma top 20 company) and were approved as a vendor for the supply of printed plates.

  • Client problem:
    A major pharmaceutical company were on boarding a new artwork management system, initially for UK then rollout to USA sites.  The company lacked QA oversight, specifically related to GXP compliance of artwork origination systems. They required Artwork Origination-QA expertise for this 12 month project in 2011.  

    CommQP solution:
    CommQP acted as QA Consultant on project team responsible for implementing the web based artwork management system. The system was successfully adopted meeting the company goals.
