Biogen is a leading multinational biotechnology company specializing in therapeutics and medicines for the treatment of neurological diseases, specialized immunology, and rare diseases. Pioneering innovative science to deliver new medicines that transform patient lives, Biogen operates internationally with offices across the Americas, Europe, and Asia.

Challenge: Product Lifecycle Delays Causing Financial Losses

Prior to implementing GlobalVision, Biogen struggled with certain convoluted business processes and unreliable legacy systems that caused delays in their products’ lifecycles. The processes in place made making even minor changes a difficult task.

Their legacy systems were inefficient, resulting in regular compliance issues and data losses, hindering Biogen’s ability to maintain regulatory compliance, and reducing operational efficiency.

Solution: Streamline Artwork Development With Automated Quality Inspections 

In March 2019, Biogen implemented GlobalVision’s suite of automated quality inspection tools in hopes of alleviating these critical delays. The system helped them deliver artwork files exactly as intended and significantly reduced revision cycles. They calculated the following success metrics:

“The Artwork Design TeamRegulatory TeamsQuality Partners, and Graphic Service Providers—across all four of those functions – the time savings are associated with the move to GlobalVision.”

Ultimately, Biogen’s implementation of GlobalVision’s market-leading software allowed them to deliver critical medicines to market faster, further solidifying the software’s position as the leading proofreading and quality inspection solution for regulated industries.The software’s capabilities such as pixel-to-pixel comparison and text comparison, quickly proved to be crucial for maintaining the integrity of product information across the product lifecycle.

“The reliability associated with both the implementation, the maintenance, and the operation of  the [GlobalVision] system has been amazing and really is one of the keys to why we want to prolong the relationship with GlobalVision.”
