FusionOps Launches Supply Chain Analytics

Trending Now:  Cloud solution provides supply chain visibility to help pharma companies drive growth and reduce cost.

PV1015_AllenJacquesFusionOps has launched FusionOps Pharma, a new analytics suite designed specifically for the pharmaceutical industry. The new cloud solution provides end-to-end supply chain analytics that enable pharmaceutical companies to increase revenue in high growth segments, while reducing cost and decreasing working capital for mature product lines.

Pharmaceutical companies have been facing unprecedented pressure as their branded drugs have lost patent protection while their R&D pipelines have lagged in filling the void. At the same time, biologics and other specialty medications have emerged as key drivers for topline revenue growth. To support these disparate trends, companies are seeking both high product availability for growth products and reduced cost and lower working capital for mature products.

“Pharmaceutical companies need to balance the need for lean, more agile supply chains to meet the reality of lower priced products, while also driving revenue for new high-growth products,” says Allen Jacques, VP of pharmaceutical analytics at FusionOps. “Now, these companies have analytics purpose-built for the pharmaceutical industry that give them the supply chain visibility they need to support product-specific business goals.”
