Ideagen, an information management software provider in the U.K., acquired IPI Solutions at the end of 2016 for £5.5MM (~US $6.8MM). IPI and Ideagen both serve multiple industries, including medical devices.
IPI is the developer of the Visual FAIR software application for quality and compliance reporting. It integrates with Q-Pulse, Ideagen’s quality and safety management application. For medical device manufacturers, Ideagen can assist in achieving and maintaining compliance with the FDA’s 21 CFR 820 and Part 11, ISO 13485, ISO 14971 or Medical Devices Directive requirements.
The purchase is Ideagen’s eleventh in nine years and its third in 2016, following earlier acquisitions of Covalent Software and Logen.
Ideagen is an OMTEC 2017 exhibitor, and will be available in Booth #635.
