SGS’ OneVision initiative is working to standardize record-keeping across the global life sciences industry in an aim to accelerate laboratory testing, development, and eliminate paper-based systems.

SGS Life Sciences, launched a global digitalization initiative, OneVision, which will use technology to standardize record-keeping processes in all office and laboratories worldwide.

“The OneVision project is first and foremost people-centric,”​ Ulrich Markens, global head of Quality & Business Excellence, SGS Life Sciences.

Markens explained, “SGS Life Sciences is deploying a range of high-tech solutions for our global laboratory community, in order to implement standardized record-keeping processes in all offices and laboratories around the globe. This means, wherever a customer is in the world, they are guaranteed the same high-quality service.”

As part of the initiative, the company will implement a fully digitalized global network to connect systems and laboratories.

According to the spokesperson, as part of the digitalization project, SGS will implement electronic quality management, auditing, document management, and training management system to drive harmonization and optimization across the life sciences network.

This standardization will enable all network data imputing and processes to be streamlined, establishing a more efficient workflow and accelerated turnaround times.

“OneVision will eliminate physical borders, delocalize information by creating a global knowledge database,”​ said Markens. “Digitalization and centralization allows faster and more comprehensive data analysis/data trending, which supports continuous improvements and allows SGS Life Sciences Global teams and their local laboratory teams to keep pace with market developments.”

A main component of the project will be the introduction of electronic Lab Notebooks. The notebooks will be integrated with the existing lab management solutions which the spokesperson stated will eliminate “unnecessary transcriptions and data review steps.”
