- Why Us
At Greenlight Guru, we’ll never forget 2021. It was a big year of growth for us, our customers, and the medical device industry as a whole.
As we move into 2022, here's a snapshot of what happened over the past year:
One defining moment was when Greenlight Guru received a $120 million investment from JMI Equity, a software-focused growth equity firm, a partnership allowing us to accelerate product development, expand our capabilities, and support significant global growth.
Customers can look forward to more game-changing tools like Intelligent Document Management powered by HaloSM, our AI and machine learning recommendation engine.
We also launched Guru Assist, an on-demand lifeline to our in-house medical device experts, where customers access the knowledge and expertise of our Gurus when and where they need it. Maybe that’s why we’ve been ranked the #1 QMS software on G2 for the third year in a row. Check out our newest case studies if you want to hear why our customers keep putting us in the leader’s position.
2021 also saw the launch of Greenlight Guru Academy, a place for medical device professionals to learn new skills and industry knowledge, and get comprehensive certifications for training and regulatory requirements. The most popular free course this year? Our Overview of Design Controls. And the most popular certification was our Introduction to Design Controls for Medical Devices.
We hosted four True Quality Summit Series events with over 12,000 registrants and speakers from organizations like TUV SUD, ISO Working Groups, and the NIH. These events covered vital topics like Risk Management, Get to Market strategies, Raising Capital, and our largest event on MDR/IVDR, which had over 6500 registrants, 20 sessions, and 20+ speakers. And let’s not forget how special Green Carpet Day was for us and our customers.
Of course, none of this happens without our team. That’s why we continued our investment in company-wide mindset training to promote health and wellness (we even found out who can get the best sleep).
We also published 180+ new pieces of content this past year. If you didn’t catch them all, we’ve put together this list of our most popular content from 2021. We hope you enjoy consuming them as much as we did creating them.
Wishing you and yours the very best in 2022!
