Constantly changing market conditions demand pharmaceutical manufacturers and distributors to quickly and effectively capitalize on emerging opportunities to provide additional value to customers. However, companies must be able to maintain consistent and compliant processes in order to adhere to increasingly stringent regulatory requirements.
Consumers today increasingly rely on pharmaceutical products to improve their health and the quality of their lives. But with this increase in customer demand, so too is competition increasing for pharmaceutical companies. Intense government and media scrutiny, extremely long product development lifecycles, and declining margins mean pharmaceutical companies need to continuously innovate and improve performance and value without sacrificing quality.
This requires more than pharmaceutical ERP or Quality Management software.
Sure, Pharmaceutical companies need features like electronic batch records, CAPA, track and trace, recall procedures, learning management, recipes and formulas, co- and by-products and more. But all of these features mean nothing if your people do not accept change and adopt the system; your workstreams are inefficient; the solution is not validated or implemented correctly; or there is no foundation for continuously improving value to customers.
Therefore, it is extremely important that any pharmaceutical company looking to undertake an enterprise transformation project works with a proven consulting partner with expertise streamlining workstreams, mitigating risk, facilitating organizational adoption, and implementing compliant software solutions.
