Veeva Vault Helps VentilatorChallengeUK Speed Production of More Than 13,000 Ventilators for COVID-19

Share

In an effort to help overcome the shortage of ventilators during COVID-19, Veeva Systems (NYSE: VEEV) today announced that VentilatorChallengeUK used Veeva Vault QMS to accelerate ventilator production for the U.K. The consortium of the U.K.’s most innovative companies across the aerospace, automotive, and medical industries is helping meet the nationwide need for more ventilators to treat COVID-19 patients. With Vault QMS, VentilatorChallengeUK automated processes to rapidly scale production and ensure quality to deliver more than 13,000 ventilators to the National Health Service (NHS).

“Veeva allowed us to streamline quality across all of our manufacturing sites to get ventilators to the patients that need them faster,” said Dick Elsy, chairman of VentilatorChallengeUK and CEO of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult. “The speed of the Veeva team was critical to helping us produce such a large volume of devices in under three months.”

Ventilator production was already underway when VentilatorChallengeUK transitioned from paper and manual processes to Veeva’s modern, cloud-based quality management system. Vault QMS was ready for production in 10 days across multiple manufacturing facilities. With improved control and visibility into quality processes, the consortium tripled its number of ventilators in just four weeks. Partners were able to quickly ramp up production and maintain better quality throughout the end-to-end supply chain.

“We’re proud to support VentilatorChallengeUK and achieve their goal of getting important medical equipment to patients,” said Chris Moore, president of Veeva in Europe. “Thank you to the consortium and Veeva employees for their incredible teamwork to help treat U.K. citizens with COVID-19.”

VentilatorChallengeUK includes 33 companies that have come together to manufacture and deliver ventilators, including Airbus, Ford, Penlon, Siemens Healthineers, and STI. For more information on VentilatorChallengeUK and its members, visit ventilatorchallengeuk.com.
