How Your Clinical Supply Chain Can Achieve Extended Enterprise Maturity

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials, Pharmaceutical,
  • Tuesday, May 07, 2019

Many clinical supply chains lag behind their commercial counterparts in sophistication and visibility. If your clinical supply decisions are impulsive rather than planned, your forecasting is guesswork, you’re constantly fire-fighting issues, and you’re tired of excel, you are not alone.

This session will define four stages of clinical supply chain maturation and help you determine which stage your company is at today. It will offer practical solutions that can help you build better forecasts, reduce overages, make better manufacturing decisions, and improve inventory visibility and traceability.
