The VENTURES program supports startups and young companies in the early implementation of a digital quality management system. The basis for this is the integrated management system DHC VISION. The early use of the software and its close integration with research and development ensures a regulatory-compliant quality management system at every stage of the innovation and startup cycle.

VENTURES consists of two building blocks: DHC VISION eDMS focuses on regulatory compliant document/SOP management and supports ensuing digital training processes. DHC VISION eQMS covers the controlled processes in the areas of deviations, measures, CAPAs, complaints and change control. DHC VISION eDMS and DHC VISION eQMS use a common database; the functional scope is defined by activated software modules.

DHC VISION is offered as a cloud-based solution (Microsoft Azure Cloud). All services for software maintenance, support and system operation are covered by an annual service fee. Documentation for system validation (“Validation Accelerators”) and detailed instructions software use (“Quick Guides”) are provided.

With VENTURES, DHC VISION is available as a standard solution preconfigured according to best practices. All GxP-relevant processes and workflows can be used immediately; templates make it easier to get started. The chapter structure of relevant standards (DIN EN ISO 13485, DIN EN ISO 9001, etc.) is part of the solution. And detailed step-by-step instructions replace time-consuming training courses. If, over time, adaptations to company-specific requirements become necessary – no problem: Almost unlimited options for system configuration are available.


Growing in the cloud

VENTURES brings digital quality and compliance management to the cloud; each startup uses its own system there. This means independence and freedom: there is no need for a separate IT infrastructure; the solution can be further developed and adapted at any time as business growth requires.

Methodologically, the solution is aligned with the V-model according to GAMP®; it meets the requirements for IT compliance as defined by EMA and FDA as well as by other standards such as ISO 13485. And it is quickly validated as the complete validation documentation (“Validation Accelerators”) is provided as well.


Validation and compliance consistently in view

DHC VISION is specially designed for use in highly regulated industries. The solution fulfills GxP guidelines and directives of the FDA, EMA, PIC/S or ICH, as well as 21 CFR Part 11, for both technology and business processes. The Validation Package is available for system validation; it consists of “Validation Accelerators” (complete documentation set for validation) and Validation Services for adapting the documentation to a specific system configuration.

Insight into our customer relations

“We wanted to get into digital QM processes early. The fact that we can use DHC VISION in the cloud saves us a lot of work. And we have done very well with the VENTURES model so far.”

“The requirements in our industry are high and they are not expected to become any less complex in the future. In addition, digitization will not stop at the GxP environment and digitized quality management systems will become inevitable sooner or later. For us as a young and innovative company, conventional forms of management are therefore absolutely out of the question already today.”
