James Farley, a longtime executive with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and president of Cardinal Consulting, will be offering advisory services to InfoStrength.

InfoStrength provides software and services to the life-science industry to help companies meet FDA regulatory requirements.

"Jim’s 35 years of life-science experience in pharmaceuticals and with service as a Science Branch director at the Food and Drug Administration will deliver many benefits to our clients." said Rita Geiger, chief executive officer at InfoStrength.

"Jim’s life-science industry expertise as a regulator, a scientist and a consultant will bring insights and experience to InfoStrength as we continue to expand InfoStrength Smart Enterprise Suite to help our clients meet the challenges of FDA-regulated environments,” she added.

Cardinal Consulting and Training offers training and services to help pharmaceutical firms in a variety of areas. Farley founded the firm.

"I am impressed by InfoStrength’s functionality, which I find both simple to use yet very thorough,” Farley said in a statement. “Many of the other systems I have seen are more complicated to use and require more training.”
