While modifying their quality system for full EU MDR implementation, Zyris has navigated through several Notified Body audits successfully and a week-long surprise audit from Health Canada, which was performed — and passed—remotely.

When we talk about implementing quality systems, it should be something you’re proud of. Starting out in medical device technology, you may have brilliant ideas, but you need to make sure you’re not going to do this on your own. Instead, surround yourself with smarter people who can change with you. There’s a lot of dependencies that occur in every part of a quality system. Greenlight Guru is a fantastic software because it addresses each one.”

According to Zyris, when navigating this new era of regulatory updates, changes, and hurdles it all comes down to your quality management system, or more specifically, finding your QMS partner.



With the changes brought forth by Regulation (EU) 2017/745, Sherwood and his team realized that they needed to change some of their processes quickly and efficiently. 

Challenges with their eQMS solution became an obstacle to their future. With the inevitable stresses that come with company growth, pushes into additional markets, and a changing regulatory environment - The solution in place wasn’t helping.

Sherwood recognized they needed not only a software solution but a partner in regulatory requirements instead of a one-size-fits-all tool.
