Fagron Expands Use of MasterControl’s Quality Excellence to 8 European Sites

Salt Lake City, Utah, UNITED STATES


SALT LAKE CITY, March 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MasterControl, a global provider of software solutions for life sciences and other regulated industries, today announced that Fagron, a leading global pharmaceutical compounding company, has expanded the use of MasterControl Quality Excellence ™ to eight of its European sites as well as two more U.S. sites. The expansion is part of a phased implementation toward integrating the quality management system (QMS) software across all Fagron sites.

Fagron first implemented MasterControl Quality Excellence in Florida, Kansas, Minnesota, and Nevada and recently expanded to Colorado in the U.S. In efforts to harmonize quality process throughout the world, two sites in the Netherlands, four sites in Belgium, one site in the Czech Republic, and one site in Poland are now using MasterControl Quality Excellence. Texas is underway with implementation, scheduled to go live this summer. With a cloud-based QMS, Fagron can have all employees on one system regardless of location or time zone and also be assured that everyone is accessing the latest version of documentation, such as training, standard operating procedures (SOPs) and work instructions. One in three employees at Fagron is using MasterControl to date.

“Phasing our implementation of MasterControl has always been the strategy,” said Matthew Seitz-Paquette, North America Quality Specialist at Fagron. “It actually helps us speed adoption when we have perfected one site and can roll that out to others.”

Fagron is extending a quality culture throughout the organization, giving wide access to quality event reports. Any employee can launch a quality event which is then evaluated by the quality department and escalated as necessary.

“By encouraging quality reporting, we have more data to analyze events and understand trends,” said Seitz-Paquette. “For example, now we know exactly when to launch a CAPA, instead of launching a CAPA for everything.”

“When we see our customers expanding their use of MasterControl, it’s a testament that our product is significant to their operations,” said Jon Beckstrand, CEO of MasterControl. “We are thrilled to support Fagron in their mission.”
