Transform Pharmaceutical Authoring Processes With Fonto Integrated Authoring Platform

Latest innovation, developed in collaboration with leading pharma companies, dramatically simplifies content creation, review, publishing and regulatory submissions

CHALFONT ST PETER, England–(BUSINESS WIRE)–RWS, a unique, world-leading provider of technology-enabled language, content and intellectual property solutions, announces the launch of the Fonto Integrated Authoring Platform (IAP), a game-changing solution designed to streamline the document creation and publishing process for the pharmaceutical industry.

Fonto transforms the complex and time-consuming task of drafting, editing and reviewing critical business documents – including regulatory submissions and drug applications – into a straightforward, efficient process. Its user-friendly interface, similar to Microsoft Word, allows experts to collaborate centrally, enhancing the speed and quality of document production.

“It would usually take me a minimum of 10 to 15 hours to format a significant document – whereas now it takes me about five hours to achieve the same result,” explains a medical writer from a large pharma company.

“We’re delighted to announce the availability of Fonto IAP,” explains Jan Benedictus, Managing Director, Fonto. “The technology is born out of a close collaboration between our pharma clients and the Fonto and Tridion teams, resulting in a breakthrough for regulated companies with heavy demands on content creation.”

Fonto IAP seamlessly integrates with external data sources, automating the creation of working documents. It also ensures consistency of content through templates and standardization, ensuring all documents are compliant with regulatory requirements.

“We release five new products to the market per year and that number is growing. Per new drug application, our scientists spend 800 days on automatable work, i.e. collecting, retyping, changing, inserting and formatting content and data. We needed to speed up these processes and reduce the amount of costly manual work. That’s why we’ve introduced Fonto IAP,” according to a Digital Transformation Program Lead at a large pharmaceutical company.
