Alternative Translation & Label Approval System (ATLAS)

The Alternative Translation & Label Approval System (referred to as ATLAS) is Fisher Clinical Services proprietary web based tool used for translation management. The industry’s first clinical, web-based, label-specific translation and approval management system, ATLAS, that comprehensively addresses the full spectrum of label development,streamlining the process from text translation and approval through label manufacturing.

This system combined with our extensive project management expertise provides:

  •  Flexibility and ease of use to translate text with a single mouse click
  •  Ability to store and auto-populate country specific regulatory requirements
  •  Monitoring and management of task translations to foreign affiliates for approval
  •  Non-compliant user escalation process
  •  Detailed performance metrics tracking

Currently being utilized by pharmaceutical and biotech companies globally, ATLAS has demonstrated a reduction in clinical label manufacturing timelines by over 50%.

Typically, clinical label production is on the critical path to bringing an investigative drug to market. The length of time it takes to generate and receive approval of label text for dozens of countries participating in a clinical trial however, can be time consuming and ultimately lead to costly bottlenecks.
