QUMAS Connect is like the Super Bowl of the Life Sciences industry. IT and business professionals and decision makers within the Life Sciences community gather to discuss the common challenges they face around document conversion, rendering, compliance, submission and best practices to overcome these issues.
Adlib and QUMAS are like two important pieces of the Life Sciences document life cycle puzzle. When integrated and deployed together in the right way, everything just seems to work seamlessly. This is why QUMAS Connect is such a strong and important event for Adlib. This event gives us the opportunity to connect with our customers, gather their insight and feedback – an ongoing process that helps shape our product road-map. With new QUMAS customers, higher renewal rates than ever before and the average deal size tripling over the past three years, QUMAS CEO Kevin O’Leary indicates there is a need for less systems to do more for organizations. At Adlib, we get that. In fact, that’s what we are all about. Our goal is to help enterprise organizations become more efficient and produce consistent, accurate and compliant-ready PDFs across the enterprise with one integration, instead of several and better still leverage Adlib PDF as a shared service across the organization for all document to PDF conversion requirements.
During the conference, we were able to engage with many of the conference attendees. We learned about how multiple organizations use Adlib PDF, and how are they planning to tackle the new challenges of data explosion and the ever growing volume of documents on a daily basis. Some attendees brought in very niche situations such as password protection, forced rendering, damaged metadata and OCR (Optical Character Recognition) in multiple languages.
Being able to provide and meet quality and regulatory compliant documents is a mandatory requirement within the Life Sciences industry. To be able to automate the conversion of documents to PDF and include features such as hyperlinks, table of contents, water marks, page numbers, and searchable images using OCR etc. just makes sense. This not only reduces elements of error but also induces cost and resource reduction. No wonder a very high percentage of QUMAS users already enjoy Adlib PDF. Many of these existing Adlib PDF users were intrigued by PDF Therapy – a new on-site consulting program.
