VeriCycle™, Sterigenics' Automated Process Verification, Ensures Critical Medical Equipment Sterilization Cycle Results While Delivering Cost Savings and Peace of Mind

CHICAGO, Feb. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- NVISIA, a software development partner with a 22-year history of connecting business innovation with emerging software technology, today announced a successful engagement with Sterigenics. NVISIA provided a tailored third-party assessment focusing on the testability and maintainability of Sterigenics' VeriCycle™ Automated Process Verification solution designed to validate the sterilization cycle prior to shipment.   

Key Facts:

  • Providing sterilization services for medical equipment requires a level of trust that is unparalleled by many industries. Should the verification of the sterilization process be compromised, resulting in a unit being shipped prior to completing a successful cycle, the effects could be disastrous.
  • Sterigenics needed a qualified and objective outside firm with a strong software development background to inspect the design, architecture and code to provide assurance that the solution would be reliable, available and supportable.
  • With a collaborative approach, NVISIA provided hands-on advice and expertise to ensure Sterigenics was fully equipped to promptly address any short-term issues as well as maintain and improve the software in the long-term.
  • NVISIA helped Sterigenics establish stronger policies around release management and automated unit testing, while exploring potential long-term business requirements and suggested enhancements that could be implemented as appropriate to support expansion in the future.

Supporting Quotes:

  • Michael W. Smith, vice president, information technology, Sterigenics, said, "It was incredible to see a project come in on time and under budget while delivering great results. NVISIA provided a solid approach and capable resources in performing our assessment while maintaining an atmosphere of trust and collaboration, without pushing for extraneous features or additional services." 
  • Shaun Lovick, president, NVISIA said, "Sterigenics needed to establish an absolute level of trust in Vericycle for their customers. With our expertise in software development, NVISIA was perfectly positioned to provide objective, third party validation for this innovative verification technology, ensuring Sterigenics was fully equipped to deploy new capabilities with confidence."
  • Bruce Kannry, founder and CEO, NVISIA said, "NVISIA has a 22 year tradition of working with clients in a transparent and open fashion focusing on what's best for the client.  The opportunity at Sterigenics is a good example of our company values in that we delivered an honest assessment of their solution and provided them with a plan to continue to improve their product, with or without NVISIA. This collaboration gets at the heart of what we are best at, serving as a trusted advisor to help our customers achieve their goals."
