The Adlib-SOLABS partnership provides Life Sciences companies with Advanced PDF Rendering capabilities as well as document publishing and management of controlled copies within the SOLABS QM document control functionality. As an essential component of SOLABS’ standard product offering, Adlib, allows SOLABS to offer an advanced document-to-PDF transformation tool within SOLABS QM through an easy to use, simple to maintain and cost effective SaaS model.

SOLABS chose to partner with Adlib due to its best-in-class technology for PDF rendition in controlled environments, such as Quality Assurance in the Life Sciences Industry. With Adlib’s high compatibility for easy integration along with its robust server-end engine, SOLABS QM is able to efficiently manage thousands of PDF rendering transactions per week.

How it Works

Working with Adlib, SOLABS QM is able to automatically convert documents (from any file format) to PDF format once the approval cycle is started in SOLABS QM. This ensures that no changes can be made to the document once the document revision is completed and the approval process has begun. .

Adlib provides SOLABS QM with  the required functionalities to efficiently render documents to PDF with:

  • the automated application of enhancements like watermarks, headers and footers;
  • document publishing and management of controlled copies;
  • adherence to eCTD (electronic submissions) guidelines.
