Here’s a qualitative approach to how this can positively impact your protocol validation activities.
1. Cost, effort, and time:
A proprietary solution could easily consume 5 to 6 person-months of development time and cost you more than $75,000 for a single protocol. Most importantly, why must your Validation Engineer write code and build automated validation infrastructures?
On the other hand, Soliton’s PVS needs only a few hours to install, at a lesser cost and with minimal effort, while your engineers focus on other priorities: measurement & data analysis.
2. Test Coverage:
Building a solution requires more technical knowledge and extensive protocol research within a given time, resulting in limited test coverage of only around 60-80%. This is not optimal. Compliance takes a hit leading to potential product failure, and in certain use cases, even customer returns. A solution that can achieve greater test coverage will help you capture the market and win over customers.
A tried-and-tested alternative is Soliton’s PVS, developed with a collective experience of 15+ person-years of R&D that can achieve greater than 90% test coverage, create custom test cases, and give you a competitive edge.
Do you spend weeks on data collection to make your solution user-friendly? Focusing solely on UI & UX can divert attention from your validation time, which is why you must leave it to the experts.
The PVS comes with an interactive GUI equipped to generate reports in just a few clicks. Data collection now becomes much easier with PVS, for veterans and newbies alike.
Adopting a new solution can be intimidating in terms of onboarding. When you buy our PVS, onboarding becomes seamless and simple with a well-established repository of collaterals and FAQs that might otherwise take years to develop. This reduces the ramp-up time for new users to about 4 hours instead of a week. In case you hit a roadblock, unlike an in-house solution where you might struggle with it yourselves, you can reach out to the Support Team who are just a ping away!
5. Maintenance, upgrades, and support:
As technology advances, so does our responsibility to match that pace. An in-house solution might require internal developers to keep track of protocol updates and have deep expertise in various protocols to upgrade and support. Our seasoned R&D team with 15+ person-years of protocol developing experience understands and delivers faster, overcoming any challenge with attrition of the in-house protocol expert.
So, the next time you want validate your protocol, think not, it’s better to buy than to build!
