About Greenlight Guru

Your mission, is our mission - to improve the quality of life

We're an assortment of bright, talented, and interesting people united to bring a higher quality of life, by changing the way people make medical devices. In order to do that, we have three core values.

3 Core Values


Be Innovative in Everything We Do

Because the rules and regulations medical device companies must follow are always changing, it takes creative and innovative solutions to keep our customers one step ahead. That’s why not only is our product innovative, but everything from the way we view support, to our accountability system, to our culture is as well.


Quality is Your Friend

The very top performing medical device companies view quality as a competitive advantage. It is the responsibility of the entire company, not just the quality department.


Fanatical Support of Our Customers

No issue is too big or too small. We believe in providing fanatical support to all of our customers. Your success is our success. We are very passionate about what we do and take improving the quality of life through our customers very seriously.

Our History

The seeds for Greenlight Guru were planted back in 2006 by a medical device engineer turned consultant as a result of a simple observation: paper-based quality management systems are painful, risky & wildly inefficient. Commercial quality management software solutions have been available for over 20 years now, yet only about 30% of medical device companies that should be using them are. But why?

Enter Greenlight Guru's platform

This observation and question led Jon Speer to team up with David DeRam to create the vision for beautifully simple quality management software and develop Greenlight Guru's platform to see it to light. With our powerful, easy to use eQMS solution, medical device companies can bring higher quality life changing devices to market, faster - which, after all, is our mission
