Vaccine research, travel regulations, supply chain disruptions, quarantines, and the ticking clock of a pandemic have underlined the importance of a competitive edge.
While most life sciences organizations won’t face the pressure of developing a lifesaving vaccine in the face of a global health crisis, their work remains critical to the health and well-being of millions. But manual, paper-based processes hold back research and development, making innovation more difficult.
Your industry faces major challenges.
Disrupted clinical studies
Elevated drug pricing scrutiny
Restrictions on site visits for inspections and audits
Decreasing medical device revenue due to a drastic decline in elective care

Do more with the Content Cloud
Collaboration between sponsors and CROs is critical to bringing medicine to market faster. But managing content and workflows has never been more complex.
Sponsors and CROs need to work closely together from remote locations, while external partners and vendors need to complete specific tasks. Meanwhile, teams also must keep regulators in the loop.
Box streamlines your research exchange of regulated and non-regulated clinical assets between sponsors and external alliances, including clinical research organizations (CROs) and research partners.
The traditional process for communication and collaboration is fragmented.
Emails, faxes, paper files, and employee hard drives lock data into silos.
Organizations grapple with slow information exchange.
Sensitive data is at a high risk for breaking the chain of custody.
The Content Cloud — a single, secure, easy-to-use content platform — empowers you to:
Accelerate research collaboration and exchange of regulated and non-regulated clinical assets between sponsors and external alliances, such as CROs and research partners
Securely monitor clinical sites and verify source documents with GxP Validation, granular permissions, and data governance
Improve researcher collaboration on clinical (SAS) datasets when working with programmers and data managers
The Content Cloud for clinical collaboration
With Box, you remotely monitor all site content. Investigators can drag and drop information or capture documents anywhere, on any device, improving workflows and freeing up time to focus on what truly matters.
In the absence of these tools, regulators must visit multiple remote clinical sites to manually monitor and review site files. Investigators are pulled away to find files or learn a new content management system, disrupting patient care.
Major issues can arise from standard operating procedures (SOPs) without simpler management.
• SOPs require significant onboarding and training
Create, share, and publish policies and SOPs faster from draft to disposal.
Each time a research and development partner begins a vendor collaboration, they must spend valuable time training on SOPs
• SOPs are complex and contain sensitive information
If a partner fails to secure SOPs properly, they become vulnerable to compliance breaches
• SOPs constantly change
Employees who download SOPs to their computers risk working with obsolete information
Box makes it simple to create, share, and publish SOPs across the entire document lifecycle.
Easily access, share, and update documents
• Partners always have the latest information
Protect sensitive information
• Regulated procedures have access limited to
Stay proactive and prepared
• End users and trainers on SOPs always have
access to the most recent version of the SOP
Do more with less
Box lets you manage the lifecycle of a controlled document — from GxP document creation to sharing procedures to external alliances — using one repository. Leverage helpful apps and services like ComplianceQuest (for documents as well as change and learning management) and USDM Life Sciences (for solution implementation and maintenance).
Best-of-breed partner integrations simplify your quality management workflows.
