Pros: The structure of the design control and risk management modules guide you through the process of documenting both. Especially great for someone who's never gone through these processes before.

Cons: While it contains the core of what's necessary for a QMS, it lacks a lot of functionality that a larger business would need, making it likely that we'll outgrow it quickly.

Overall: greenlight.guru is the perfect software solution for a medical device startup company looking to get a quality management system, compliant with both the FDA's and ISO's requirements, up and running. It also holds your hand through the design control and risk management process, which is especially valuable for a company without much experience going through these processes. We didn't need to hire a quality manager because of how helpful this software is, a fact that alone makes it worth the price.

Hi Matthew, we appreciate you taking the time to write your review of our software.

That's great to hear greenlight.guru has enabled you to delay the hire of a full time quality manager.

Per your comment regarding the feature set needed for a larger business, we'd love to hear your specific recommendations if you have them so that we can take them into account as we continue to execute on our roadmap.

You can reach out to us and provide your feedback directly to customer.success@greenlight.guru.

To date, we have several larger medical device companies with multiple products and hundreds of employees that are successful using the platform.

Pros: I like that this medical device software is built by medical device professionals and not just SW developers who don't even know what a medical device is! this SW is built to match the processes I have been doing now for over 35 years - document control, design control, capa, internal audits, etc. Both modules GO and GROW are on spot to meet the regulatory requirements.

Cons: As with any SW we have to be methodical in our naming conventions as we load documents. Its all about setting rules as a company so that SMART naming is followed which makes the search mechanisms more effective.

Overall: Ease of integration of design control with risk management is a breeze. No more tedious xcell spreadsheets!!

Hi, Penny.

Really appreciate your feedback and comments.

Did you know that all documents are assigned a unique ID when added now? Yes, there is still a need to apply some intelligence with document naming and description. Those attributes (regardless of system) are key.

Pros: The design trace matrix makes the development process very straight forward and easy to use. The ability to link anything to each DTM component, and to link the DTM to the risk management module is great as well.

The document management and routing/approval features are also a great tool. We've been able to implement digital versions of most of our work forms, without the need to use third party document signature programs.

Cons: Sometimes there is a bit of a learning curve for the various modules that they release. It would be nice if a help/guide button was available for each to walk through the module step by step.

Overall: Overall experience is great. As a small medical device company, I can't imagine keeping up with our QMS requirements without a software platform like Greenlight Guru.

Pros: Feature to read across related user needs, di, do and testing is a good idea. Printed matrix document looks nice.

Cons: So much clicking to accomplish needed tasks; not all features work as needed or expected.

Overall: We have been using Greenlight Guru now for a few months and I note the following concerns:

1) There is no undo button - once editing in a screen if you accidentally change something there is no way to return to the original state - clicking the close button will save ANY change you make even incidental ones.

2) Loading time is ridiculous. Our software currently has fewer than 300 requirements total and loading can take a few minutes.

3) Traceability for risk doesn't yet work properly in terms of tracing right through to V & V

4) Workflow could be dramatically improved - so many clicks are required to create each requirement.

5) Sometimes you will create a requirement and it does not show up in your list until you refresh the whole list - which led to a couple of duplicate requirements being created and these then can't be deleted - only obsoleted.

6) Document signing order created huge headaches for us organizationally in efficiently getting documents routed and signed.

7) Users who were in the application at the time of document routing received no notification a document was waiting for them.

8) There should be a way to check all validation and verification test cases within a given protocol off at once. Individually checking them off as passed is a make-work exercise.

9) Search feature is totally brutal and sometimes will not find something as simple as the DI title (e.g. searching for DI-159 which exists does not necessarily return DI-159).

10) When switching between projects - window did not always update content - leading to editing the wrong requirements

11) No way to sort requirements except through tagging- no way to view a short list of requirements only with a given tag reliably since search function can't be relied on.

Recommendations to other buyers: Needs more work and up-versioning before it is actually ready for market.

Pros: online

Cons: very limited functionality

Overall: Overall the software is easy to use, but there are a few functionality that we wish were there, specifically:

- parallel approvers

- ability to attach redlines as part of routing (and then ability to publish clean copy); now it forces you to review redlines offline (not great since it gets lost in people's email, etc.)

- ability to reassign who can publish the document (if person who routed it is out and doc control/quality should be able to publish for them).

- ability to turn on email notifications if you have something in your inbox

Recommendations to other buyers: would like to see upcoming planned changes to software (functionality wise)

Pros: It is the only Medical device management software on the market. Also, it allows us to centralize our numerous documents and other design records together in one place.

Cons: Limited functionality. We are still having to come up with our own solutions for numerous things that we believe were we able to use Greenlight it would immensely alleviate some of our work load.

Overall: We really like using Greenlight guru and we believe that it is a service that all businesses in the medical industry should be using. However, when we signed on we were promised the addition of many various features. These features have not been added in the nearly two years we have been involved with Greenlight. I come from a software background and understand that things sometimes have to be placed on hold in order to fix more pressing issues. However, so far the additions that have been made have made greenlight more difficult to use rather than easier. We look forward to seeing some of the new features that have been promised to us in the near future.

Recommendations to other buyers: The security stuff (although we have been told has to be the way it is to comply with FDA standards) is tedious. Is there not a better solution that is still within FDA standards?

Pros: The dashboard showing User Needs; Design Inputs; Design Outputs; Design Verification; Design Validation all on one screen. I also like the Doc control capabilities

Cons: Risk Management section is cumbersome to use

Overall: Overall my experience is positive. I like having the User Needs through Design Validation all on one dashboard in front of me. The Risk Management section is a little cumbersome to use at this point. I'm looking forward to new modules like ECO etc.

Recommendations to other buyers: I'm anxiously awaiting the ECO module and the automatic approver notification (so I don't have to manually email the next approver to sign a document)

Hello Jeff, appreciate you taking some time to write your review of our software.

Your comments regarding the risk management module have been heard and believe you will be excited about the changes coming with our risk 2.0 release.

We also appreciate your feedback regarding automatic notifications with approvers and are happy to let you know that this feature will be made available as part of our next release.

Glad to hear your overall experience has been positive and look forward to delivering on your feedback.

Comments: Three main deficits: First there is no strukture for the data we save in Greenlight like direktorys, subdirektorys, a kind of tree... Colours... The only method to find data in the large pool is the serch funktion. This is useless if you don´t know the right name of what you are looking for.

Second deficit: We were told that data exchange with other systems is not possible. If that is really true I would immediately stop this software, but keep cool, I am far away from beeig responible.

Third deficit: Though the speed of the operations improved, it is still not acceptable. Important to know would be if the internet-connection we have at invendo is sufficient and reliable.

Positive: I have no doubt that you are able to program every kind of user interface we need. And I am very happy that you are really interested in my opinion. Feel free to ask me specific Questions.

Pros: Software is great for document control and for Design review and design freezes. Risk management functionality holds a lot of promise. Customer service is great.

Cons: No training feature as yet and Risk management doesn't seem to work well for our style. Would like to see more flexibility on how that works. Document list doesn't load well in Chrome.

Overall: Greenlight is excellent when you're still a young company and are able to grow with Greenlight. Lately, we would like more functionality with GL as our company is growing and features like training, and better/more flexible risk management matrix are needed. Hope to see GL grow, because their customer service is A+ and their advice and consultancy calls are also really good.

Recommendations to other buyers: Keep growing. I'd suggest rolling out training asap, it is a much-needed feature that we would like to have associated with our doc control program.

Hello, Laura. Thank you for the feedback. We have enjoyed working with you and your team. Did you know you can manage training activities in the software today?
Regarding risk management, Greenlight Guru aligns with ISO 14971. And knowing that this standard will be revised soon, expect some updates to Greenlight Guru risk management workflow to continue to be in alignment with 14971.

Comments: I am a consultant, working with OtoNexus, an early-stage medical device company, on the implementation of their Quality Management System (QMS). We advised them to consider deploying Greenlight Guru for this purpose, and they are in the initial stages of doing so. The Document Management features of the software appear to be thorough, well thought out and useable. Obviously, the flexible routing and detailed history features for document review and sign-off, and compliance with Part 11, are very helpful and key to the success of any medical device company's QMS. The tutorial on the Product Development module, which is based on 14971 risk management principles, seems like it will be an excellent tool. Unfortunately, the client is a bit behind in utilizing it, and wants some other project management features implemented that, frankly, are a bit beyond the scope of this type of software tool.

Customer support in general has been excellent. We have noted, however, that when product feedback is given, although the response to a question or issue is timely, there is often a defensive tone that comes across. An example of this was when there was a change to the software, which caused a conflict with login using a browser that had worked fine previously. Yet, we were not notified of this change, and once we found the issue, were told to update our browser. This software, like any other, is imperfect, and can and should be continuously improved.

Overall, my initial impressions are that this is an excellent software tool for implementing a QMS at a medical device company.

Pros: The fact that it automates the process instead of just storing documents.

Cons: It would be great to have email notifications when you have an assigned activity.

Overall: GreenLight.guru has made implementing our quality system a manageable effort. We have likely saved half the effort and tens of thousands of dollars by using it for our first FDA submission.

Pros: electronical signature and the fact that my document is blocked one published.

Cons: I would like to be able to put my document in file, not only have routing, published etc etc but QMS, DHF etc etc. I know I can do it with the search system but then I need my documents to have many tags...

Overall: It is currently difficult to rate your system for me because Diabeloop managers decided not to use all fonctionnalities included within Greenlight-guru. If I may suggest something, I would like to have a less sensitive search system. Because right now if I don't know the exact name of my document, the search system will not detect it!

Recommendations to other buyers: make the search system a bit less sensitive, have a email system to email the user who needs to review or approve a document,

Pros: Aesthetically pleasing as well as practical and easy to use.

Cons: The risk and design modules have been difficult at times to use - the risk matrix is not easily maintained as a living record, e.g when a risk is mitigated and the scoring reduced.

Overall: Green light Guru has been an invaluable resource not only in the set up an electronic QMS but in the advice available in the form of webinars and podcasts and someone who is new to the world of Quality and Regulatory requirements.

Pros: Easily allows for document control in a compliant system for medical device development

Cons: I like traditional interfaces with document lists that look like a "Window" rather than highly formatted presentations. Give me simple presentation.

Overall: GreenLight.Guru (GLG) is a terrific tool that solves multiple issues - design controls, document controls, and compliance. Perhaps just as valuable is an unending stream of blog posts and educational articles from the GLG staff. Their goal is to help users of their software (and, frankly, just about everyone else) adopt best practices in medical device design and maintain compliance during the product development process and beyond. The system is not very intimidating, but still requires some sophistication to use properly. That being said, it enables a single person to do the work of several people, which is extremely efficient for a small or start-up company. My current "complaint" is that our GLG installation does not send email notifications about tasks or documents to review. This would be very beneficial.

Comments: We are a small, early-stage medical device company that struggles with all the usual small, early-stage company issues: minimal headcount, limited budgets but the same regulatory requirements that apply to anyone else in the space. Like many other companies in our position, we were using free or cheap tools to keep track of our design controls since we simply could not afford the systems that were available for purchase.

Enter Greenlight Guru. The system they presented was not only more affordable than anything we had encountered previously, but, being completely web-based, also did not require us to have any expensive IT infrastructure in order to implement.

The system is relatively intuitive, well thought out, and easy to understand both by someone entering information and someone reviewing the final product. We have already had several audits where this system has allowed us to quickly show that our design controls meet the regulatory requirements, which would have been much more difficult with our old, primarily manual methods of maintaining our records.

I would definitely recommend Greenlight Guru to anyone who has to follow design control regulations. It has certainly had a significant positive impact for us.

Pros: The relational database capabilities to link and trace. The CFR 11 and consistancy with 14971.

Cons: The structure is very rigid, which limits the ability to take advantage of some things in 14971 (like P1xP2 risk assessment) and some simply practical elements of design and development (like running separate and independent use, design and process FMEAs within a project.

Overall: In general, this is a very good upgrade from the manual, Excel-based approach we had been using. The automation of trace ability is Huge!

1) As our matrices have grown, the interface slows to a crawl, slowing the flow of data input and evaluation.

2) The inability to separate use, design and process FMEAs, which may have different structures (including or excluding detectability $ having different "frequency" distributions), results in a missing the value of trace automation for the matricies that need to be handled manually.

3) The system doesn't have an efficient way to implement P1xP2 analysis of risk probability, and is harm-centric.

Recommendations to other buyers: Figure out gow to run large data sets faster over teh internet, or better yet, allow local operation with ports to Greenlight when internet and or time allows.

Pros: Easy to use and learn, integrates the entire Quality Management System into one interface.

Cons: It was difficult to use on mobile devices and tablets. It's been a while since I tried accessing it from either of these types of devices and may have changed since, but it would be nice to be able to pull up documents on a phone every once in a while.

Overall: As a small company developing our first medical device, greenlight.guru was an incredibly helpful tool. The software doesn't just provide a means of storing and organizing documents, but also provides an interface for product development and project management that is very useful.

Furthermore, the greenlight.guru team is nearly always available through the chat feature. On the rare occasions that issues do arise with the software, I've been able to get in touch with their programmers and resolved the matter within minutes.

Pros: Visibility to elements required for 13485 compliance

Cons: Browser quirkiness

Overall: Our tiny team of 10 purchased Greenlight Guru a little less than a year ago. The team at Greenlight provided training and support to see us through our adoption of the tool. Their guidance, knowledge and support has been instrumental in getting our team compliant with quality systems regulations. We feel our decision to to purchase Greenlight was a key factor in meeting our early quality milestones and will be instrumental in our success to launch.

Comments: We started working with Greenlight Guru about a year ago, and the support that we've been able to have since then has been excellent. Having an agile technical solution for your Quality and Design History management needs is a must have as the regulatory guidances shift and move constantly. We were just starting out and really learning our way through the setup and implementation of these device company infrastructural elements, and the GG software was the perfect fit for us and we're confident that will have ample room to grow as we add additional products to our portfolio.

Pros: Doc management

Cons: Organize the publish documents better

Overall: We use this system as a quality management system. Greenlight guru has really helped us as a team that is at different places collaborate easily. Design reviews can now be done virtually. Sign off prompts and doc alerts really help in getting documents published faster. If there was one thing lacking, I would say the ability to make folders and organize the publish documents better. Never the less we are managing that by using the search function and our own doc log.

Pros: easy to use, covers most of the basics

Cons: lack of flexibility is managing content across multiple sub-contractors working on the project.

UI can be refreshed to an easier form based on mobile use today

Overall: A couple missing key features discussed with GLG and hope they will be incorporated to allow us to better use the tool with our external vendors. These relate to file permissions and to release flow. I think these would benefit many companies like ours that rely on external vendors for portions of the development.

Recommendations to other buyers: This is all preliminary feedback as we are just starting to use the software :) thanks !

Vendor Response

by Greenlight Guru on October 12, 2018

Hi, Danny. We recently deployed sharing features within document management that allow you to share specific information with sub-contractors and external vendors. We also have a new partner view to expand on this further.

Comments: I work as an R&D Engineer for a small start up company working on a medical device. Greenlight.guru has made the process of implementing a quality system very easy and simple. The biggest benefit I've found is the simplified organization that the service provides, namely keeping all documents in one place and not having to continually keep track of updating and compiling documents as progress is made. Great tool!

Comments: Greenlight.guru has provided a significant amount of value to our company. Being that we are a small startup with team members decentralized, having a cloud based solution for document management can save considerable time and keep people on the same page. In addition, the risk management and design control modules are very easy to use and facilitate understanding with individuals that may not be as familiar with these processes.

Cons: Still needs a number of features (important to us) to make it really useful.

Overall: We're transitioning from a paper system to your system. We chose Greenlight because of several recommendations. It's been a bit slow to bring up, and we've had to hire a dedicated person to help manage our content.

Recommendations to other buyers: You really need to commit time and staff to make this work.
