Like most large companies, Xytex Cryo International, one of the world’s largest sperm banks, has a compendium of business challenges ranging from document storage and management, workflow and time management, to communications and employee training. All of these elements are important in order to improve efficiency and profitability, and for maintaining strict compliance requirements.
Xytex is a globally-regulated company located in Augusta, Georgia. They are subject to federal and state regulatory inspections and industry-standard examinations on a frequent basis. They are monitored and regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), whose focus for this industry includes standards for screening and testing donors and proper record-keeping procedures.
According to Anita Wylds, who heads Special Projects and Quality Assurance, managing large volumes of donor information and regulatory documents using archaic computer and data storage systems posed significant challenges and required much time and effort. With an estimated 60 to 80 million infertile couples worldwide, Wylds realized the increasing demands of the expanding fertility industry. She investigated technology solutions to improve the efficiency of Xytex’s document and workflow processes.
