Data Sheet 2 MasterControl Guest Connect™ Features and Benefits: • Connected System: MasterControl Guest Connect makes it possible to involve vendors and outside experts early in the development cycle. Anyone with an e-mail address can be added to a secure, online collaboration workspace. • Automatic Notification and Task Assignment: MasterControl immediately sends electronic notification to vendors and other external parties when a new revision of a document or specification has been approved and made available. Project tasks can be assigned to vendors or outside experts. External parties are also able to report back to the project plan and provide a status. • Enhanced Communication: With MasterControl, vendors and consultants can retrieve product documentation on their own from a secure repository. MasterControl also ensures that vendors are not using outdated specifications. Challenges MasterControl Solution Manual, Ineffective Systems: Tens of thousands of dollars may be lost each time document control personnel forget to notify a vendor of a new revision to a part specification before the vendor begins working on a current part or a processor is not notified of a donor criteria change. Connected Electronic System: MasterControl reduces the possibility that a contract manufacturer is using an out-of-date specification. Users can automatically notify vendors and other external parties of document or specification changes as they are approved in MasterControl. Inefficient Systems: Manually notifying suppliers and other external parties that a specification has changed wastes time and resources. The later suppliers or consultants are involved in the development process, the more costly manufacturing becomes. Cost Effective System: MasterControl can provide external parties with rights to view collaborations, add comments, and redline documents. Outside vendors and consultants are involved earlier in the development cycle, thereby saving time and money. Difficulty Tracking Project Status: With disconnected manual systems, external and internal groups may not be on the same page when working on specifications, documents, or tasks, which can lead to a painful amount of retesting or reworking. Automated Tracking: MasterControl ensures that all parties are working with the most current specifications and documents and it allows all iterations to be electronically tracked. External parties can also be sent scheduled reports and electronically assigned to project tasks. Challenges and Solutions
