Camstar Launches Industry-Leading Medical Device(TM) Suite into Asia-Pacific
Leverages Extensive Medical Device Industry Experience to Help Asia-Pacific Manufacturers Bring Safe, High Quality Products to the North American and European Markets
CHARLOTTE, N.C., Oct 14, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Camstar, the leading provider of Enterprise Manufacturing and Quality Execution solutions, today announced its commitment to help Medical Device manufacturers and suppliers in the Asia-Pacific region quickly bring products to volume without compromising quality or compliance. The company is launching its Medical Device Suite -- already deployed widely at major Medical Device companies in the United States and Europe -- in China, Japan, Singapore and Taiwan.
Regulatory bodies, in particular in the United States and Europe, are dramatically increasing oversight of import safety and supplier quality. As Global Medical Device manufacturers outsource more of their manufacturing operations to the Asia Pacific Region, they must require complete visibility into critical quality and manufacturing metrics. Asian Medical Device manufacturers are faced with intense scrutiny around products destined for Western markets and must effectively demonstrate that their quality systems and manufacturing processes are fully compliant with all required regulations and mandates.
Camstar's Medical Device Suite, built on Camstar's Enterprise Manufacturing and Quality platform, facilitates compliance in global manufacturing companies by providing full manufacturing control and traceability, and allows companies to build the foundation for quality that can be scaled across their enterprise.
Medical Device Suite helps manufacturers reduce costly errors, scrap and rework, and eliminates redundant paperwork checks. The audit trail, the basis of the electronic Device History Record, is accessible globally for traceability and effective root-cause analysis.
"We want to help Medical Device manufacturers and their suppliers consistently satisfy requirements of ISO 13485, U.S. FDA Title 21 CFR Part 820, and China's YY/T0287-2003," said Manash Chakraborty, Camstar's General Manager, Asia-Pacific. "One of Camstar's key advantages is wide acceptance in North America and Europe. Top global Medical Device manufacturers are already running on Camstar's solutions -- these are the very companies that many Asia-Pacific manufacturers are targeting as potential customers. Product safety, brand protection and customer confidence are prime concerns."
