OCR: Save Time and Reduce the Risk of Non-Compliance

Verify continues to offer the most cutting-edge technology in cloud-based proofreading software by refining and optimizing our Optical Character Recognition capabilities. This feature allows users to inspect flattened text on documents such as labels, promotional material screenshots and supplier proofs by converting the digital images into readable, live text format.

Verify’s OCR feature leverages powerful artificial intelligence technology that detects characters within images or flattened documents, rendering a precise character-for-character text inspection possible.

This feature helps you save time on inspections and reduce the risk of non-compliance errors falling through. By automating the process of recognizing and extracting text from images or scanned documents, users can expect to drastically decrease the need for manual inspections, as well as the overall time needed to digitally inspect files.

By reducing manual processes, OCR also decreases the risk of human errors, safeguarding sensitive and critical documentation from errors that can lead to financial losses and the potential of a negative brand image.

While OCR is intended for all users, it will prove to be particularly beneficial for content, creative, regulatory, and labeling specialists in a variety of sectors from pharmaceuticals, print and packaging, prepress, and marketing agencies. 

Watch our video to see the OCR feature in action 

Revamped Prep Stage and Filtering Tool in the Results Stage

You can now expect to go through inspection results in record time through the new Prep Stage options and Filtering Tool in the Results Stage. Previously, users did not have the option to opt out of Text Inspection, and when reviewing inspection results, users sometimes had to go through large amounts of results cards with no clear and efficient method to filter and resolve them. 

Now, users can select exactly which types of inspections they want to perform from the Prep Stage, and all Results get automatically segmented into 5 separate panels with their own unique default filters: Text, Spell, Graphics, Barcode, and Braille. You will also still have the option to view all results together with the “All” filter function. 

This will allow you to view results in a more clear and concise manner and tackle differences by priority and importance, ultimately improving the revision process and allowing you to make corrections and improvements with greater ease. 

See the new revamped Prep Stage and Filtering Tool below

Enhanced Graphics Inspection Capabilities

For those who heavily focus on graphics inspections, the Verify Winter Release also offers game-changing features to ensure the accuracy of your graphics. 

Ability to Manage Spot Colors in the Prep Stage

This release also brings the ability to manage Spot Colors in the Prep Stage (also known as “Separations Control), expanding graphics inspection capabilities by ensuring a more comprehensive assessment of files, resulting in the heightened accuracy to your graphics files.

In the Prep Stage, a new option called ‘Spot Color Controls’ will now allow you to turn Spot Colors on or off to ease your revision process and allow you to view results and make needed adjustments efficiently.  

Regulated industries such as pharmaceuticals, print and packaging, CPG, as well as agencies  deal with complex workflows and often have limited power over the composition (layers and spot colors) of the files that need to be inspected. If the presence of a Spot Colors is hindering a successful graphics inspection from happening, the inability to turn that Spot Color off may reduce the accuracy of any given inspection, or make the inspection impossible. With the addition of this new feature, this bottleneck will be eliminated allowing for more seamless inspections. 

Watch our video to see the Spot Colors Control feature in action

Graphics Inspection Captures Live Text Differences in Red Boxes

When running a graphics inspection, Verify will perform a pixel-for-pixel overlay, detecting all deviations, including deviations in live text, and will now capture them all within a red box. 

By grouping and visualizing all differences found, this feature ultimately reduces confusion about which elements are being inspected when enabling Full Page Graphics. 

See the new Graphics Inspection Improvements below

Scale Globally With Improved Accuracy of Asian and Right-to-Left Language Text Inspection

Multinational brands and agencies need to adhere to the compliance requirements of global authorities of the countries where their products and content are distributed, and are often faced with inspecting languages such as Asian text and right-to-left texts, such as Arabic and Hebrew, on various types of documents. 

Without adequate processes and solutions, these companies are forced to either outsource these tasks or perform the inspections manually. This can lead to slow revision processes, delayed product-to-market times, and can ultimately hinder a company’s ability to scale its brand globally.

We improved our text inspection algorithm that recognizes and compares Asian characters and Right-to-Left languages. This allows multinationals to render more accurate inspection results and consequently, improve the quality of their multilingual documentation and packaging assets. 

Reduce Unwanted Spelling Results

The Winter Release also brings new improvements to the spelling inspection algorithm and now offers a more reliable dictionary, rendering more accurate results for the following:

  • Hyphenated words
  • Soft-hyphenated words
  • Words that include special characters
  • Commonly used abbreviations

This is particularly beneficial for global brands and agencies that need to ensure all of their distributed content is accurate and free from all errors. Much like with multilingual documentation, without proper processes and software to help with these quality control tasks, international brands and companies may need to outsource tasks or do inspections manually. This can slow down revision times, delay product launches, and hinder global brand expansion.

Verify addresses these problems and offers a comprehensive and seamless solution to all organizations in a wide range of markets who want to ensure the quality of their products and brand.

Collectively, the network is made up of over 45 agencies that are spread across six continents and 6,500+ employees driven by a company-wide obsession with harnessing creativity, technology, science, and data to inspire behaviors that fuel better health. 

IPG Health’s clients include the top 20 global pharmaceutical companies as well as countless startups, biotech companies, biopharma companies, and a variety of life science companies. In everything they do, IPG Health is relentlessly focused on doing what’s right for their clients, their brands, and their people. 

The Challenge: Keeping Content Accurate While Facing Regulatory and Time Constraints

Due to the fast-paced, highly regulated, and critical nature of their field of work, IPG Health must focus significant time and resources on ensuring the accuracy of every piece of content and creative material produced. 

Kyle Richards, EVP, Executive Director, Editorial, at IPG Health, gave us a detailed look into some of the key challenges his teams and department face in the project development process. He noted that their main goal was to deliver accurate content for their clients and a large part of ensuring that was through accurate and fast proofreading processes. 

IPG Health deals with large volumes of medical and scientific materials that are often lengthy and technical, and that include special characters that further complicate proofreading. When reviewing the documents manually, the proofreading process can be very time-consuming. Traditionally, this often led to the need for additional proofreaders at the late stages of the project development process to avoid bottlenecks while ensuring accuracy. 

Further, duplicate proofreading reviews at key project milestones were part of their standard operating procedure to ensure accuracy as projects moved through the late-stage production steps. The need for a second proofreader so routinely added a resource management challenge to the quality control process.

“We found that there were bottlenecks with regard to turning projects around and getting them back to our clients. We were coming up against these crunch times to turn around content quickly for product launches, and the manual proofreading process was slowing us down.”

  • Kyle Richards, EVP, Executive Director, Editorial, at IPG Health

The Solution: Increase Content Review Efficiency and Maintain Accuracy Through Automation 

When IPG Health first sampled GlobalVision’s automated solutions 10 years ago, they instantly noticed the incredibly accurate results it was producing proofreading files. On top of that, even at a time before the routine use of digital tools, GlobalVision products were easy enough to use to enable a broad rollout within the editorial teams. 

For over a decade, this accuracy has proven reliable, as IPG Health still trusts GlobalVision as an important component of its editorial process. 

“A lightbulb went off when we were proofreading a 35-page product package label. The manual proofreading took most of the day to complete, yet when I ran the files through [GlobalVision], it took all of 30 minutes. It caught all the errors the manual proofreader found plus two additional errors that would have otherwise slipped through.”

  • Kyle Richards, EVP, Executive Director, Editorial, at IPG Health

In many cases, IPG Health teams work with pre-approved client content that needs to be included in their materials. While there is plenty of room for their renowned creativity in other areas, in these cases they must strictly adhere to the approved language. To help with this, GlobalVision is used to ensure complete accuracy, in addition to its use for late-stage proofreading to ensure content integrity.

Kyle Richards notes that due to their text-heavy content, the Text Inspection tool is the feature they rely on most. They also benefit greatly from the built-in Spell Check and Custom Dictionaries, which proved to be extremely helpful when proofreading health-related material. Graphics inspection is also used frequently, as diagrams, charts, and visuals are commonly included in the content.

Throughout the years, IPG Health found numerous advantages of using GlobalVision’s file comparison technology but has particularly noted three main software benefits: 

  • Accuracy: Maintains accuracy of proofread documents and provides an additional layer of quality control in late-stage reviews. 
  • Time Savings: The addition of automated inspections drastically decreases the time needed to proofread lengthy, technical, health-related documents, particularly in late-stage reviews.
  • Better Use of Expertise: Provides an added layer of support and verification for editors and allows them more time to perform other high-value aspects of their role. 

Automated inspections drastically decrease the time needed to proofread lengthy, technical, health-related content. In general, it decreases proofreading times at IPG Health by about 75%-80%.

It hasn’t been just IPG Health reaping the benefits of GlobalVision, their clients have also received the benefits. Kyle Richards notes that “Clients are always looking to be more efficient with their budget. With GlobalVision, we’re able to do more work within the same time, meaning they’re getting more for their dollar.” 

“Clients are always looking to be more efficient with their budget. With GlobalVision, we’re able to do more work within the same time, meaning they’re getting more for their dollar.”

Verify X Veeva integration - Revision

Date: May, 2023 | CategoryCompany Author: Gabriella Naguib

In Life Sciences, Speed-to-Market is Key 

In an industry where being first to market is critical in maintaining credibility and leadership, life sciences companies that embrace digitization in content management and proofreading workflows are likely to have an edge over their competitors. 

GlobalVision provides life sciences teams with accuracy and efficiency while minimizing the resources required in the review process. Now, with a Veeva Vault RIM Suite integration, highly regulated businesses can achieve efficiency in their review and regulatory workflows while also achieving global efficiency alignment and cross-functional unification — otherwise challenging tasks for large multinational enterprise companies.

From Vault Submissions to Vault Promomats , Vault QMS, and more, Veeva tackles use cases for a wide range of life sciences stakeholders. While regulatory, promotional, and labeling teams extract much value from these solutions, Veeva and GlobalVision partnered up to address an important piece of this elaborate puzzle: the need for content proofreading. This task often spans multiple stakeholders while cross-functional approvals need to get products to market fast, without compromising quality. This challenge is especially true for pharmaceutical and medical device companies as they strive to:

  • Get critical products to market quickly and safely
  • Mitigate the risk of non-compliance issues such as recalls and sanctions
  • Protect their brand’s reputation in a highly competitive market
  • Minimize financial losses caused by errors and workflow bottlenecks

An Integrated End-to-End Quality Ecosystem

The Verify x Veeva Vault integration is the ideal solution for regulated industries that want to ensure speed, accuracy, compliance, and risk mitigation. Verify is GlobalVision’s latest cloud-based automated proofreading software which is designed to protect the critical assets produced in highly-regulated industries. Verify was specifically engineered to accommodate the rigorous demands of the life sciences industry, providing companies with the necessary tools to scale their operations and achieve long-term success. The former, along with its strict security and compliance architecture make it the ideal complement to Veeva’s digital cloud solutions, from R&D through to Commercial business functions.

The Verify x Veeva Vault integration is seamless and prides itself on simplicity thanks to its easy-to-deploy REST API technology.

Simply, it enables Veeva Vault users to securely pass files into Verify to perform inspections on critical content and graphical items, input the required annotations, and then send the working file back into the Vault to continue with their day-to-day operations.

The result? Life sciences benefit from a seamless end-to-end content ecosystem. 

Below are some of the use cases happening in the industry today. 

Simplified Regulatory Submissions 

In the regulatory space, the Vault Submissions integration with Verify enables teams to navigate and automate the extensive amounts of proofreading often needed at this stage. Using text inspection to proofread documents in any language, as well as custom dictionaries, and a built-in medical dictionary, turnaround times for regulatory submissions are significantly reduced. Moreover, the integration of platforms strengthens data integrity, allows for continuous visibility and traceability of content changes, and allows regulatory teams to work more efficiently with global health authorities.

Efficient Promotional Content & Editorial Reviews

Honing in on the promotional content use case for Vault PromoMats, the Verify integration empowers creative teams to maximize editorial efficiency by reducing the number of content revisions needed. The character-for-character text inspection coupled with the pixel-to-pixel precision graphics comparison in Verify allows creatives to focus on more meaningful work while the integration takes care of proofreading critical content. 

Comprehensive Labeling Quality Checks

Remaining on the commercial side of the life sciences product workflow, the Verify integration with Vault QMS enables teams to optimize speed-to-market. Teams involved in packaging and labeling development can seamlessly send files from the Vault directly into Verify for an automated text and graphics inspection, and then push reports back into the Vault, ensuring document versions are error-free and GxP Compliant before they go to production. This end-to-end quality ecosystem is essential in getting critical products like patient drugs and medical devices out swiftly while also protecting the end consumer. 

Across the entire quality workflow in life sciences, teams across various departments and business units can find value in integrating their Veeva Vault with GlobalVision’s Verify solution. The integrated solution not only maximizes process efficiency but also boasts a sophisticated security architecture and effortless cloud hosting.

From automating the proofreading process to saving time, and ensuring the utmost quality of documentation, regulated industries can expect to reap many benefits from this integration. Request a free Verify trial today.

GlobalVision is not a great place to work anymore. 

Our market-leading proofreading software company was previously certified by Great Place to Work. In 2022, we received the certification as a testament to our dedication to creating a positive and fulfilling work environment for our employees.

This year, however, is a little different. 

In recent years, GlobalVision has made extensive efforts to make our organization an amazing place to work and our efforts have not gone unnoticed. In addition to gaining the Great Place to Work certification, this year, we are extremely proud to announce that we won the Best Workplaces in Canada for 2023 award. More specifically we received the 2023 award for the Best Workplace in Canada for the 50-99 Employees category.

The Global Authority on Workplace Culture

The Great Place to Work certification recognizes companies that have gone above and beyond to create an outstanding work environment. It works by surveying employees about their experiences and the environment they find themselves in Mondays to Fridays. 

The certification is a two-step process that includes a survey as well as a short questionnaire about work culture. Survey results are completely based on employee feedback about their organization. Results also offer valuable insights to potential job seekers about a company’s work culture and its efforts to keep employees motivated and happy. Results of this year’s certification have also been received extremely well, with even the Globe and Mail advertising the 2023 list of lucky winners. 

GlobalVision employees participated in the Great Place to Work survey in November 2022 and met the Trust Index score to secure certification for 2023! The Trust Index is designed to measure employees’ perception of the quality of their workplace relationships which includes their relationship with their peers, their job tasks, and with management. 

This year, GlobalVision received a Trust Index Score of 92%, increasing from 88% in the 2021 survey – a true testament to our company’s continuous efforts to keep employees satisfied.

Best Workplaces Start With Happy Employees

Over the past years, GlobalVision has made significant progress in establishing a top-tier remote-first company culture that prioritizes the well-being of its employees. The many initiatives put into place to increase employee satisfaction have proven to be extremely successful; the proof being in how employees feel about their day-to-day on the job.  

The Great Place to Work questionnaire gives critical insights for employers and employees alike, giving each an overview of the major advantages of an organization. For GlobalVision, employee responses reflect an overwhelming appreciation for flexibility, asynchronous and remote-first work, self-managed time off, and amazing work-life balance. In other words, a great company culture. 

According to a majority of GlobalVision employees, a high point of company culture was the remote-first, self-managed work and time-off policy. Employees feel that the flexibility they are given to create their own hours and schedules shows that they are trusted, that their skills and capabilities do not go unnoticed, and that micromanagement is not needed in order to complete tasks. 

There is no “one-size fits all” work process that GlobalVision employees need to follow, instead, they are free to work however and wherever they please through independent, asynchronous work. Employees feel that this leads to autonomy over their work and the ability to have a great work-life balance which is reflected in the high productivity and performance of every individual at GlobalVision. 

What’s more, the survey found that not only do employees feel a sense of pride and accomplishment in their work, but they also feel empowered to be innovative, driven, and ambitious. It helps that the open work environment allows for seamless teamwork with talented, passionate colleagues who are always readily available to help and collaborate on daily tasks. 

Yet, what sets GlobalVision apart from other remote-first, tech companies is not the endless benefits that it offers its employees. Many companies boast a long list of benefits while still struggling to find and retain top talent. What truly sets GlobalVision apart is that the entire company, from top to bottom, lives and breathes its company culture and values. 

At GlobalVision, it’s not about listing company values and benefits, it’s about actually implementing them for the overall development and well-being of each and every employee. 

Extensive efforts are constantly being put into place to ensure the benefits and freedoms given to employees remain true. From complete transparency to constant, open communication and feedback, employees notice all the genuine efforts being made to keep them happy. A winning combination for company and employee success.

Continued Efforts to be Great 

GlobalVision’s certification as a best place to work in Canada is a positive development for the company and its employees and an affirmation that a remote-first, asynchronous company culture works. It is also a recognition of the company’s commitment to excellence and its ongoing efforts to create a workplace culture that supports and empowers its employees.

As the world continues to navigate the challenges posed by market changes and uncertainties, it’s more important than ever for companies to prioritize the well-being of their employees. GlobalVision’s certification as a Great Place to Work and a Best Workplace in Canada is a testament to our company’s commitment to creating a positive and fulfilling work environment and is a model for other companies to follow.

Here’s to continuing to grow an amazing workplace culture and to one of many Best Workplace certifications!
