Based on our experience with many Veeva customers, Epista has developed an implementation support framework that counteracts common pitfalls and sets you up for success with Veeva.

Implementing a new IT system brings the unique chance to improve compliance and business: revisit the current status quo, harmonize processes, and optimize current ways of working. To accomplish this in the most efficient way possible, we listen to our customers. We challenge you to get the most out your effort.

Why choose Epista as your implementation partner?

As with any new IT system, deploying Veeva will result in major change to your organization – but that doesn’t mean it has to be difficult. As a Preferred Partner for the Veeva Development Cloud, we address the major challenges that pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device, and other Life Science companies face when making the transition to a new IT system.

Smart Configuration Decisions

The Veeva Configuration Phase is short, and decisions must be made quickly. Time constraints don't allow for very many process improvements or harmonization activities. Epista helps you turn your business strategy and goals into actionable configuration decisions to create a digital platform for you future.

Efficient Process Optimization

New IT systems bring layers of complexity, crossing internal ‘silos’ and making it difficult to meet everyone’s needs. Yet, streamlined processes are essential to achieving business goals. We ensure your  processes are harmonized and streamlined to meet compliance requirements while unlocking value throughout your organization.

Expert Validation Support

The stacks and stacks of validation documents provided by Veeva can be overwhelming - especially to those inexperienced with Cloud/SaaS qualification. Epista's deep expertise gives you a proven path to success. We know what needs to be read/reviewed, what vendor documentation can be re-used,  and more. Instead of reinventing the wheel, you'll have the confidence that comes from being supported by reliable experts.
