The Submission Tracker assigns key dates to deliverables, for example, when a deliverable will be provided for publishing and when certain tasks related to that deliverable must be completed to in order to promote it to submission ready. The tracker is used to determine if submission content is being provided according to schedule and if publishers are completing tasks on time.
Submission publishers face a number of challenges as they perform the day-to-day tasks associated with compiling and inspecting the quality of an eCTD. Innovations in technology are easing the burden in terms of actions publishers must perform manually. Streamlining publishing tasks saves time, effort, resources and in the end, produces a higher-quality submission. Susceptibility to error is a corollary to the number of labor-intensive, manual actions performed by your publishing team. Manual processes also extend the publishing time frame, induce extra effort and require greater resources for quality assurance.
