Mitigating the CoronaVirus Travel Restrictions

Updated: Mar 26

The recent Coronavirus outbreak and subsequent implications has tossed businesses into a new reality, impacting life Science organizations worldwide. Prior to the onset of the new reality, life science companies have been accustomed to conducting their business and operations globally spread over different locations not only domestically but often internationally.


The Current Challenge


However, sending your teams across the globe in today's Coronavirus reality has been abruptly disrupted. It has become almost impossible to travel as more and more countries have recently closed their borders in an attempt to contain the spread of the deadly virus. Life science companies now need to manage their research, clinical and manufacturing operations with limited or no ability to interact face to face as they were used to.


Now more than ever, the ability to conduct business remotely and with supporting electronic systems and tools has become a crucial element of business continuity and a capability that all companies must adopt in order to continue operations as normal as possible.


Travel Restriction Impact


Typical scenarios that are impacted by the change in how business is conducted due to the Coronavirus travel restrictions include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Working with multiple sites where the remote team of researchers needs to interact on a regular basis with peers across the ocean or at clinical sites.

  • Working with the ever-complex supply chain that can include many sites, vendors and other 3rd party providers that are physically remote and spread across continents.

  • Continuing a wide-array of business operations and activities while a large portion of the workforce can only work from home (bans imposed by authorities or senior management on gathering).




Business Continuity Enablement


Historically, deployment of electronic enablement systems was a tedious and long process. Dot Compliance, with its ready to use off-the-shelf compliance package enables life Science organizations to deploy core quality processes as well as an electronic document management system within a matter of days.
