When life science organizations release a new drug or medicinal product into the market, they are legally bound to adhere to regulatory submission and patient safety standards. These requirements can be complicated, and compliance is almost always time-consuming and expensive.

EXTEDO makes pharmaceutical compliance an effortless process. We provide solutions and expert knowledge that help life science organizations worldwide to reduce the time and effort required to create and submit regulatory applications for medicinal products and maintain them throughout their lifecycle.

Our comprehensive Regulatory Information Management (RIM) platform, EXTEDOpulse, addresses every step of pharmaceutical product development. Use the applications individu­ally or gain additional value by using them together based on your requirements.

To ensure that our industry and agency customers can rely on our EXTEDOpulse software and services, we regularly conduct strategic important audits and certifications and contribute through our various memberships in relevant organizations to innovation and knowledge exchange.
