Quality System Consultants, a leading medical device quality consulting firm, has partnered with Arena Solutions to expand its software consulting capabilities.

Through this strategic partnership, Santa Clara, Calif.-based Quality System Consultants will be able to build on its extensive track record of providing medical device companies with compliant and effective product lifecycle assistance. Foster City, Calif.-based Arena Solutions provides quality management system (QMS) and product lifecycle management (PLM) software solutions that help companies accelerate new product development and streamline regulatory compliance.

“We believe that companies will continue to digitalize their manufacturing processes, and that this trend will allow our clients to more easily meet ever-changing compliance regulations less expensively,” says Paul Schwartz, the president of Quality System Consultants, who brings more than 30 years of experience working with medical device companies and the FDA.

Technology like that offered by Arena Solutions helps engineering, quality, and manufacturing teams reduce the time it takes to introduce innovative products to market. Quality System Consultants has spent the last few years helping clients use this technology to improve their quality systems while reducing the expenses associated with regulatory and compliance.

“It’s great to partner with Quality System Consultants’ team,” says Craig Livingston, CEO for Arena Solutions. “With more than 30 years of experience working with medical device companies, they know how to help companies get the most from Arena’s cloud-based applications while navigating regulatory compliance initiatives.”
