Partnership with Softcomply

Press Release, February 27th 2018       

Zurich, Switzerland. – As of today, PEDCO announces the partnership with Softcomply ( 

PEDCO and SoftComply will work together in fostering the growing numbers of Applied SAFe customers; where PEDCO delivers its own product Applied SAFe® and SoftComply helps with their tools and knowledge in order to achieve full product compliance for  Applied SAFe customers in medical device development.

SoftComply automates regulatory compliance and integrates it to the agile software development environment ensuring the safety and compliance of medical device innovations. One of the major challenges in developing software for regulated environments is ensuring the safety of the final product. With SoftComply Risk Manager, a JIRA add-on,  medical device developers are able to link risk management activities to their software development lifecycle and requirements, automate reporting and traceability. SoftComply automates regulatory compliance and integrates it to the agile software development environment ensuring the safety and compliance of medical device innovations. People from SoftComply are known to our product Applied SAFe and we at PEDCO are convinced, that the combination of our two products, a complete implementation of SAFe as a process model and SoftComply’s mechanics and pre-filled out templates, boosts scaled agility in the medical device development in order to bring a new product completely to market in a very short time.

This collaboration supports our commitment to foster scaled agility on an enterprise level, especially for companies working in a regulated environment. Applied SAFe is our fully-fledged implementation of the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) as a process model. Applied SAFe is based on and kept in sync with the actual SAFe version by Scaled Agile Inc. (SAI). Our product is officially approved by Scaled Agile Inc, the inventors of the Scaled Agile Framework. Implemented as a comprehensive, executable process model it includes all roles, activities, templates, guidelines, milestones, and phases in order to bring the framework to life; including metrics and tailoring. Applied SAFe is a ‘ready to go with’ implementation and allows organizations to start using the framework immediately.

Medical device companies are often overwhelmed with regulatory requirements for their complex devices. With Applied SAFe these companies can not only prove that the development of complex physical products using SAFe still meets all regulatory requirements but also have a very performant tool to support a sustainable SAFe implementation. Together with our products, customers will almost immediately be able to develop medical device products.
