International specialty software company opens office at Purdue Research Park in Indianapolis

INDIANAPOLIS and EUREKA, Calif.  – A California-based software company that serves pharmaceutical and other high-tech customers around the world, S-Matrix is looking to better serve its existing American customers from its newly opened office in the Purdue Research Park of Indianapolis.

“We have a solid pharmaceutical industry and regulatory customer base in the Midwest generally and in the Indianapolis area specifically,” said Richard Verseput, president of S-Matrix. “The Indianapolis location provides easy access to the entire Eastern USA and Canada regions.”

Based in Eureka, California, S-Matrix is the developer of the Fusion QbD® (Quality by Design) modular software platform that supports different types of analytical and product research and development. It’s widely used throughout the United States and in more than 30 other countries. The modular components of the Fusion QdB platform can be used in situations varying from single-use systems all the way through global environments with full regulatory compliance.

The Fusion QbD product is in use by many pharmaceutical-related companies. Quality by Design is a standardized product design process that has become a major regulatory imperative within the global pharmaceutical industry.

The company’s Fusion Pro product is used in electronics, semiconductor, personal care, specialty chemicals, aerospace, medical device, engineering and other companies around the world that work with technical product development.

S-Matrix will use the Indianapolis office to develop and qualify new analytical methods as a contract service for its existing customers and for live trial testing of new software capabilities under development.

“This location will also be our regional training and meeting center,” Verseput said. “The Purdue Technology Center is a perfect fit for us. It has all the lab and business support facilities we need.”
