Implementing regulatory compliance software within an organization ensures data security and privacy, maintaining the reliability & credibility of information used in the regulatory process. Companies such as Freyr, with their advanced Integrated Regulatory Management System (IRMS), emphasize their commitment to upholding the highest data security and regulatory compliance standards. This dedication increases trust and reliability in client relationships. This demonstrates the growing appeal of RIM software, which is in accordance with the primary's input, which specifically states that conventional RIM is no longer in use:

“In order to comply with the requirements for drug approval, traditional methods of RIM are not possible to follow because they take a lot of time, and time is crucial in the pharmaceutical industry. If we compromise on timing, we risk losing the drug's royalties or experiencing other similar consequences, so adopting such technological advancements as Veeva Vaults RIM software gives us the leverage of working effectively.”

- Pharmaceutical companies market expert, India.

For instance, a well-known pharmaceutical business noted in its customers' feedback for Veeva's Vault RIM Suite that RIM is one of the change and digitalization strategies that they are continually forcing themselves to think about when exploring the data-driven regulatory information solution.
