Quark and Glemser Technologies Bring Quark XML Author to Life Sciences Organisations

Glemser Integrates Quark’s Microsoft Word-based XML Authoring Tool into its Global Labeling Solutions for Creating Compliant Document Submissions in PIM and SPL Formats

Denver - 3/1/2011 - Quark announced today that Glemser Technologies has signed on as a Value Added Reseller of Quark XML Author™ for Microsoft Word. Founded in 1987, Glemser designs and implements XML and content management solutions for the largest and most successful life sciences companies in the world. Glemser will bring Quark XML Author to organisations that require knowledge workers to use Microsoft Word to author XML documents ready for submission to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in Structured Product Labelling (SPL) format and to the European Medicines Agency (EMA) in Product Information Management (PIM) format.

Quark XML Author is an XML authoring and editing add-in to Microsoft Word that allows anyone using Microsoft Word to create structured XML content. The familiar user environment makes it possible for anyone – not just technical experts – to use Microsoft Word to create compliant XML-based content components that can be managed by Glemser’s xmLabeling solution.

“We are confident that Quark XML Author for Microsoft Word will resonate with our clients and prospective clients who need to meet global labelling requirements, as well as improve their publishing processes,” said Andrew Glemser, Vice President of Marketing, for Glemser. “Ease-of-use is of particular importance when life sciences organisations are adopting a new tool for creating content. It allows them to avoid outsourcing the XML creation or conversion and improves speed to market – both of which have significant impact on the bottom line.”

Together Quark XML Author and Glemser xmLabeling allows life sciences s to:
•    Meet evolving regulatory requirements
•    Streamline global labelling processes
•    Enable authors to focus on content rather than format
•    Use industry standard technologies such as Microsoft Word, Microsoft SharePoint, and Documentum
•    Ease adoption of XML and our global labelling solution

PG Bartlett, senior vice president of product marketing at Quark said, “Glemser has long been regarded as a leader in solutions for life sciences. We look forward to the opportunity to help solve the XML authoring and global labelling challenges that their customers face. Our combined solutions can bring a tremendous amount of value to organisations that need to comply with industry regulations today and as they continue to evolve.”
