“If we had purchased ten licenses of one of the other systems, it would have taken us a decade to spend that same amount of money with SIMCO CERDAAC.That’s a pretty big upfront investment, and we would only have been using limited functionality out of that system. For our needs, SIMCO software was a much better solution.” — Lukin Moline, Validation Specialist, WuXi AppTec
