Don’t Snooze through Compliance: 4 Ways an Automated System Benefits Life Sciences

Author: Emily Ysaguirre via Verse Blog 

I’m not a morning person. Well, I could be… once I fully wake up. Waking up for me is the hardest part of my day. I’ve tried every different alarm sound my cell phone has to offer and still I manage to tune it out and continue dreaming. One morning, I thought— I wonder who the inventor of the alarm clock was and if waking up was any type of struggle for him/her like it is for me?

A few google searches later and I learned the evolution of the alarm clock was a lot more complex than I had hoped for… but I narrowed it down and found that the mechanical alarm clock was said to be created by Levi Hutchins, of New Hampshire in 1787. He only made one for himself, (so I guess he needed it a lot like I do!). It only rang once at 4 am to wake him for his job. French Inventor Antoine Redier was the first to patent an adjustable mechanical alarm clock in 1847. Now whoever invented the snooze button was a google search for another day…

An alarm clock to me is what Compliance Software is to an organization. So if you don’t have a Compliance Management System— wake up!!
