Grantek Chooses 4IR Solutions' PharmaStack to host its new CloudEMS in the cloud

Grantek has selected 4IR Solutions' PharmaStack™ platform for their new cloud-based Environmental Monitoring System (EMS) for the Life Sciences Industry. By offering a new cloud-based EMS product that leverages modern advances in web and IT technologies, Grantek aims to ensure compliance and security now, and into the future. In 2021, Grantek named 4IR Solutions a Strategic Partner focused on Cloud technologies; since then we've been on a mission to simplify OT infrastructure management and increase plant floor efficiency and productivity. Grantek's CloudEMS and PharmaStack™ collaboration is a step in that direction.

CloudEMS will handle data collection, processing, alarming, and notifications, while also leveraging industry-standard communication protocols (OPC-UA, MQTT). This will be a 21 CFR Part 11 ready solution, which meets the technical requirements for regulatory compliance and uses encryption to satisfy the requirements of an "open system". CloudEMS will feature a light-weight deployment on site, allowing for better accessibility. Notifications will be sent via SMS, email or push. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year.

CloudEMS Benefits:
· Regulatory Compliance - CloudEMS will leverage current regulatory and industry guidance to ensure it meets today’s data integrity & cybersecurity requirements.  
· Enhanced Support – Grantek’s Service & Support infrastructure will ensure that CloudEMS is always working behind the scenes.  
· Peace of Mind - Grantek’s CloudEMS product will be built on a modern cloud technology stack using our current web design technologies created with Pharma 4.0 in mind.  
· Look-and-Feel - CloudEMS will have a similar look-and-feel to earlier Grantek EMS offerings, but with a refreshed user experience, ensuring a seamless transition.  
· Mobility - CloudEMS will be built on a mobile-responsive platform allowing access from tablets and other mobile devices.
