NextDocs Named Microsoft Life Sciences Partner of the Year

NextDocs, the global leader in regulated content management and compliance solutions for the life sciences industry, today announced that the company has been recognized as Microsoft’s Life Sciences Partner of the Year for 2013.

The award recognizes NextDocs’ excellence and achievement in delivering innovative solutions for the life sciences industry which are built to work with Microsoft technology.  This is the fourth consecutive year NextDocs has received this award.

“The life sciences industry has been undergoing a major technology platform shift.  The leaders in the industry are rapidly turning to regulated content management solutions based on open standards to streamline business processes and drive compliance,” said Zikria Syed, Chief Executive Officer of NextDocs, Inc.  “NextDocs, working closely with Microsoft and relying on its technology, has helped more than 100 leading life sciences companies transition from legacy systems to modern solutions to manage regulated content.”

According to the research report, The State of SharePoint in Life Sciences 2013, nearly 37 percent of life sciences companies reported scaling back or replacing their legacy systems, such as EMC Documentum, over the past three years.  Nearly 65 percent of life sciences companies say they have already shifted or plan to shift to a Microsoft SharePoint-based platform.

NextDocs regulated content management and compliance solutions are built on the dynamic Microsoft SharePoint platform – and extend SharePoint’s functionality to satisfy the unique business needs of life sciences companies.

“Life sciences companies actively seek solutions that provide greater flexibility and capability for their business; solutions that take advantage of their increasingly global, mobile and connected business environment; solutions that connect health professionals and empower them to increase productivity, save money and improve care,” said Andrea McGonigle, Managing Director, Life Sciences, at Microsoft. “Year in and year out, NextDocs has helped these companies transform their operations and drive compliance.”

Winners and finalists were selected by Microsoft’s Life Sciences team.  NextDocs also participates in the Microsoft Global ISV Innovators Partner Program.
