MasterControl is expanding as pharma faces an increasingly complex regulatory environment, which has fueled “unprecedented growth,” says EVP.

The enterprise software solution provider renovated a six-floor 154,000 square-foot office building in Salt Lake City, Utah.

The new headquarters will house 300 employees, though the location was chosen with longevity in mind, according to the company – as it expects to double its workforce in the upcoming years.

MasterControl is seeing unprecedented growth in the demand for its solutions from the pharmaceutical and biotech industries​,” Matt Lowe, executive vice president of MasterControl told

As companies in the life sciences industry look for increased efficiencies in an increasingly complex global regulatory environment, MasterControl’s EQMS [Enterprise Quality Management Software] products are a natural fit​,” he said.

MasterControl enables companies to meet regulatory requirements and quality standards in multiple geographies by automating workflows and repurposing data and content to country-specific regulations, Lowe explained. 

Over the next five years, Lowe said the regulatory environment is expected to become more complex to navigate and will involve technology “in increasing doses​.”

This is manifest in many geographies even today with aspects of the regulatory process being mandated as electronic-only​,” he added. “If companies in the pharmaceutical space wish to remain competitive and get to market quickly, they will have to be prepared with the proper tools and processes​.”
