Introducing Compass as a Guided Compliance Platform
Compass is a product development compliance and commercialization platform used to aid in the development of medical devices, pharmaceuticals, and combination products. Compass allows teams to trace the product development process from concept through commercialization and into post-market.
Compass is designed with compliance in mind. Built-in features enable compliance as defined by critical standards relating to medical device and pharmaceutical design. Standards include 21 CFR 820, ISO 14971, and IEC 62366, to name a few.
Compass is hosted on a secure SaaS environment provided by Synergio. Synergio’s SaaS offerings are compliant with SSAE 16 and 21 CFR Part 11. Access your project from a secure, shared environment made for collaboration.
Compass offers a guided approach to complying with many standards. This method ensures consistency with the regulations and standards throughout all projects. It also produces compliant, submission-ready documents that can be used for regulatory deliverables.
From Market Requirements, to User Needs, to System and Regulatory requirements through to Design Outputs: Compass guides teams to manage all aspects of requirements during a project. Requirements can be imported or created within Compass, allowing teams to work with them in a central location.
Compass provides a full, visual traceability mechanism to see connections from product inception to completion of testing. Compass’s unique linking ability allows teams to easily create connections between Requirements, Tests, Risks and Mitigations. These connections are then shown in multiple dashboard views throughout the project.
Compass provides out-of-the-box templates for PHA, FMEA, FTA, and more. Scoring and color matrix options allow you to tailor the Compass experience. Risk calculations are done within the platform, reducing the room for error. The built-in risk functions can be configured to suit medical device or pharmaceutical products.
