Gain Control of Your Packaging Supply Chain

Life Sciences, Pharma Manufacturing & Supply Chain,
  • Tuesday, November 10, 2015


Pharmaceutical and Life Science companies are under pressure to ensure initial packaging and documented changes on existing pharmaceutical packaging are properly managed and coordinated, globally. Daily functions are often performed in “silos” inside a company or between different companies.

However, the stakeholders are located all around the world – in different time zones, using different tools and speaking different languages. All these participants must perform flawlessly under extreme time pressure with the flexibility to adapt to changing drug regulations. Managing expectations and handoffs between these different players is not only challenging; it becomes a major source of errors and delays.

By leveraging a pharmaceutical packaging management solution, you can take ownership of your pharmaceutical packaging assets to enable proper coordination across stakeholders, increase visibility to the process, and decrease cycle and production time. In this webinar, you will learn how to implement and optimized processes to keep everyone on track and informed with better communication and collaboration.

During this webinar, you’ll be given three examples that how show you can take back control of your pharmaceutical packaging supply chain:

  1. Learn methods to effectively manage pharmaceutical packaging assets. Do you know who changed, what, when they changed it and why?
  2. See how technology can help your company manage the pharmaceutical packaging approval process.
  3. Learn how to set the right customer expectations for over-the-counter products.
