Friday, March 18th, 2016 - Parashift

South Australian technology company, Parashift, today announced they have been selected to help Ego Pharmaceuticals bring their people and processes together with a document management system (DMS).

Ego Pharmaceuticals’ existing document management tool was not cost effective, difficult to use and lacked functionality. Ego Pharmaceuticals deemed it was time for a generational change in the way they managed their rapidly growing information.

Ego Pharmaceuticals Managing Director, Alan Oppenheim  explained that the company is experiencing enormous growth and had identified a need to further improve its data management system and processes to increase efficiency.

“As our business continues to grow we need to continue to evolve to ensure we have the most effective systems and processes in place. I like our ICT systems to enable our people to achieve even greater success.

“Like Ego, Parashift is an innovative Australian company and we’re looking forward to increasing efficiency in our data management across the business through their services” added Mr Oppenheim.

Parashift’s Managing Director, Kieren Fitzpatrick, said that Parashift were thrilled that Australia’s leading Alfresco partner got to work with Australia’s largest pharmaceutical company, specialising in dermatology.

“There is much apparent cultural fit with our two great organisations,” he said.

“Initially our work began with a proof of concept pertaining to contract management and taxonomy consultancies. From the value they received, the project quickly branched out to an enterprise-wide project to modernise their knowledge management.

“In an industry that is heavily governed on their information, process and security, management of this information is vital.

“The new DMS will provide a single repository for all of Ego Pharmaceuticals’ information – documents and records – allowing for staff to focus on their day jobs and high-valued tasks.

“Automation of these processes, together with a customised single repository, will ensure the right people have the right information, at the right time, to make the right decisions,” said Mr. Fitzpatrick.
