Meetings-management technology provider StarCite officially launched its Life Sciences Solution this week, an industry-specific platform designed to help life sciences companies comply with government and industry regulations in their strategic meetings management programs. Specifically, the solution incorporates specialized budgeting, approval processes and reporting features within StarCite's Meetings Management Suite, designed to help track any expenditure related to health-care professionals. For example, meeting request and approval processes prompt clients to collect all necessary data and obtain required approvals; sourcing controls direct planners to select appropriate facilities for events that include health-care professionals; and specific budget fields and line items address regulatory tracking requirements.
