OpenQ selects to tap into the power of social, mobile and open cloud technologies to transform customers into social enterprises

OpenQ, today announced OpenQ Empower is now available on,’s Social Enterprise cloud platform for building employee-facing social apps. The life sciences and healthcare industry has the most to gain from being social and compliant since it has been required to pay billions of dollars in fines for failures to comply with regulatory requirements while facing collaboration challenges. Empower is the next generation content distribution solution that enables social collaboration, management and delivery of thousands of presentations and other content while seamlessly integrating with your existing portals.

Empower’s technology enables users to share, collaborate and control content compliantly, with Investigators, researchers and other thought leaders, both inside, and outside, of an organization. Empower is the only content management system for life sciences that automatically updates or expires previously downloaded content as new versions are available and leverages the power of social collaboration to produce scientific advancement. Coupled with the only mobile application of its kind available on the iPad App Store, Empower is the only fully native gesture driven mobile solution for content collaboration “on the go.”

Comment on the News

“Empower allows organizations to collaborate to create and distribute content in a controlled manner, yet allow for compliant flexibility,” said Otavio Freire, Chief Technology Officer, OpenQ. ” Content management has been due for a revolution. Out-dated technologies focus on uploading files for storage. OpenQ unlocks the power of social collaboration while ensuring regulatory compliance.”

The Power of Social, Mobile and Open

Clinical Research Organizations and Life Science companies can use Empower as the foundation technology for compliant document and message sharing in their social community.
