About Samarind RIM Solution

Deployed on-site or accessed on-line, Samarind RMS provides a smarter way to manage medicinal product license information, where customers only need to enter data once and reuse it as many times as required. This concept applies to all key data held within the system and is proven to streamline workload and help increase the quality of data.

Components include:

  • A secure Regulatory Information Management (RIM) system with planning, tracking, automated alerts and comprehensive reporting facilities
  • An electronic document management system (EDMS) with version control, template creation and the ability to link to external document management systems such as Documentum™ or SharePoint
  • An optional eCTD module for dossier creation and maintenance (NeeS is also supported)
  • An optional EVMPD module for automated maintenance of data required by the EMA’s extended medicinal product dictionary, xEVMPD with a clear path to IDMP
  • A Med Info addition, for quick and easy logging of medical information queries, with links to the associated products elsewhere in the system as necessary
  • A Medical Devices module plus UDI add-on to handle any kind of medical devices
  • A Drug Safety module, handling Pharmacovigilance requirements
  • An Analytics module, allowing users to visualize large amounts of data in graphical format, supporting critical business decisions in real time
