At OdysseyVC we are constantly researching our market so that we can better serve the needs of our customers. This is a critical function for any company who wishes to not only succeed but to excel in their field. The uncertainty brought on by the sheer diversity of the global marketplace can create problems for the R&D, design, manufacture, distribution and marketing of products. This insights page aims to bring some of our learnings, achievements and goals as a company to our customers and indeed to a wider audience in the hope that we can pass some value back.
Odyssey VC are delighted to announce that we plan to create 100 new jobs from our headquarters in Sallins, Kildare.
Odyssey VC offer Integrated GxP Cloud and Computerised System Lifecycle Management Services to Life Science companies that operate in highly regulated environments.

Quality standards are an essential flag to fly for any organisation. On that note we are both very proud and happy to notify our clients that we have received our ISO 9001:2015 certification. Why proud you might ask? Well the team here at OdysseyVC, spearheaded by the expertise and drive of Fionnán Friel, managed to design, install and make live an ISO compliant Quality Management System (QMS) in the unheard of time frame of 3 months!!
We recently attended a seminar in Brussels to examine the impact of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on the operation of R&D and science and on collaborative research in the EU and with its global partners. Our interest is in the cross-over between the GDPR and the regulations that govern our clients businesses such as the CFR’s, PIC/S and Eudralex to name a few. The GDPR entered into force on 24 May 2016 and will apply from 25 May 2018. The regulation is aimed at empowering the citizens as owners of personal data, as well as establishing legal certainty for business based on clear and uniform rules.
Implementing enterprise level computerised systems that support regulated activities is not a simple process. Forget about the regulatory requirements for a minute and just focus on the business impact. It is extraordinary to see the complexity that companies have introduced into their own business processes in their global operations. One acronym means a different thing depending on the person you are speaking to and their geographical location. And this is just an acronym! When analysing the business processes of global organisations we have only ever seen discontinuity, nuances, different organisation structures and so on. It makes the design of ‘standard’ business flows extremely difficult.
