Find and Fix Software Defects Before They Derail Your Timeline

For companies in the medical device industry, reviews of source code and requirements are essential. They enable teams to reduce risk and identify defects as early in the development process as possible, which is especially important for complying with the FDA's 21 CFR part 11 and ISO 13485 standards.

Collaborator empowers teams to conduct peer code and document reviews early and often, to ensure premier quality throughout the entire application lifecycle. Cross-functional teams can remotely and collaboratively improve on deliverables all in one place. Whether you are a product manager writing and reviewing requirements or a software architect building the latest feature, Collaborator helps you and your team stay on the same page.

Drive Process Improvement and Quality Management with Custom Reports

How do you show your review process in a tangible way? With Collaborator, custom reporting is a standard, out-of-the-box capability. Whether you're trying to illustrate your review efforts for a compliance audit or just looking to find the gaps in your process, Collaborator's reporting feature can be leveraged to drive insights and document your team's compliance with code and document review standards. 

 

"It’s very powerful to have Collaborator create a documentation package that documents reviews with a great level of detail structured in a way to facilitate audits and integrate with other project documents. We also benefit from a 70% reduction in our code review and test review timeline."

Aaron Peterson VP of Research & Development at Heart Test Laboratories

Simplify Compliance by Exporting Code and Document Review Details

For many teams, preparing for audits means manual documenting your review work or tracking down Excel spreadsheets. Does your team have time for that? With Collaborator, you can easily pull data on your entire peer review process and download it as a zip file. From there, it is easy to hand over to auditors or store for your own records so you have a long-term digital audit trail of your development.
