Press Release

This innovative feature simplifies the MPR creation process, improves oversight and communication, and provides CMOs with a key differentiating factor.

CARY, N.C. March 14, 2023 – InstantGMP, the all-in-one solution for capturing manufacturing  inventory and quality data, is proud to welcome one of the top contract manufacturing organizations (CMO) to our client base – and give them a competitive edge with our software features.  

BotanaWay, Inc. is a brand builder and contract manufacturer based in Richmond VA which specializes in low minimum order quantity (MOQ) and proof of concept.

As a thriving CMO, BotanaWay was experiencing some growing pains. Namely, they were finding it difficult to provide their clients with the high level of oversight that they were demanding. 

Many of BotanaWay’s clients want to have more control of their product’s formula design, manufacturing instructions creation, and materials selection. Essentially, they want to supervise or collaborate with BotanaWay during the Master Production Record (MPR) creation process. By doing so, the client ensures that the final product meets their specific needs. 

To provide this service to its customers, the BotanaWay team drafts an MPR and shares it with their respective clients either as a physical document or electronic file. The client makes their revisions and sends it back to BotanaWay. This process continues between BotanaWay and their clients until a final MPR is approved. 

Unfortunately, this process isn’t very efficient or effective for BotanaWay and their clients. 

First, it’s an incredibly time-consuming process, especially when dealing with paper documentation. More importantly, the possibility that the information included in the final MPR draft is not completely accurate. Since there are multiple revisions of multiple physical documents or digital files, the final version may: 

  • Include outdated information that was not deleted from a previous draft. 
  • Exclude critical information or instructions.
  • Omit a key member of the client team during the review process. 
  • Lack an electronic signature option for review/approval purposes 

InstantGMP PRO’s External User Feature Gives CMO A Competitive Edge To improve their existing process, offer their clients greater oversight, and avoid these serious issues, BotanaWay began looking for software solutions.

“When we learned that InstantGMP™ PRO software includes an external user feature that would allow our customers to securely access master production records and batch productions records online, we knew we found the answer to our oversight issues,” said Dave Derian, President of BotanaWay. “With this innovative feature, we’ve simplified our MPR process, improved client communications, and greater oversight during the entire manufacturing process. Additionally, this software feature gives us a competitive advantage over other CMOs who still rely on the traditional process.”


Not only does InstantGMP PRO’s external user feature permit BotanaWay’s customers to conveniently and confidentially review MPRs and BPRs at any time from anywhere, it also allows them to: 

  • Revise master production records (MPR) and batch production records (BPR) during the design phase. 
  • Provide comments which are recorded as part of the respective records.
  • Check the real-time status of a batch production record
  • See real-time results during a batch production. 
  • Receive notifications/emails when production deviations occur. 
  • Respond to alerts in the Requests For Action fields. 
  • Use an Electronic Signature to approve MPRs and BPRs. 

“Thanks to our software innovations, BotanaWay now enjoys greater engagement with their customers during the MPR process and batch production,” said Dr. Richard Soltero, President of InstantGMP. “Plus, this feature acts as a key differentiator between BotanaWay and other contract drug manufacturing organizations.”
