The ThinSpring TeamÂ?s SPL Software and Data Conversion Specialists will be on hand to discuss ThinSpringÂ?s SPL Server technology (used by the FDA to validate SPL submissions) and data conversion services (using SPL Server) designed to provide immediate and long-term structured content management solutions for FDA compliance of electronic label submissions.

The ThinSpring Team will be exhibiting at the Barnett Structured Product Labeling (SPL) Conference in Philadelphia, PA on September 22 and 23. The ThinSpring Team members are: ThinSpring, developer of the SPL Server™ software used by the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in building the ELIPS system, and Reed Technology and Information Services, ThinSpring’s conversion services partner, who converts over 400,000 patent applications and grants to XML each year for the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The ThinSpring Team, having converted scores of SPL labels to date, has been selected to convert hundreds, during the course of the next year, for several of the world’s leading pharmaceutical manufacturers. Contracts with additional clients, representing hundreds of additional labels, are pending.

The ThinSpring Team’s SPL Software and Data Conversion Specialists will be on hand to discuss ThinSpring’s SPL Server technology and data conversion services designed to provide immediate and long-term structured content management solutions for FDA compliance of electronic label submissions.

The FDA currently uses ThinSpring’s SPL Server tool as part of the process to internally validate SPL submissions from pharmaceutical manufacturers. "The ThinSpring Team’s dedication to implementing effective SPL software solutions, high accuracy XML-based data conversion and 100% assured compliance with a migration path to hosted and internal implementation solutions, is a winning combination for a wide-range of pharmaceutical companies," states Ron Celeste, CEO of ThinSpring. He goes on to say, "The ThinSpring Team provides pharmaceutical manufacturers with stepping stones to success – starting with the opportunity to receive a sample label conversion, at no charge, for qualified pharmaceutical companies. If the FDA uses ThinSpring’s SPL Server technology to validate your label submissions, shouldn’t you?"

Mark Bayer, Vice President of Business Development for Reed Tech adds, "When the ThinSpring Team is responsible for a label’s conversion, the label will pass the FDA’s XML validation process and business rules review. We are not finished with the conversion until both you and the FDA are satisfied. We will help you cross the SPL Compliance Gap, one step at a time."
