Deloitte Launches ExaLink, a Multi-Services Platform for Commercial Operations
Trending now: New platform helps pharma companies transcend legacy enterprise systems.
Deloitte has released a hybrid cloud-based, multi-services platform, ExaLink, to help life-sciences companies transform their commercial operations processes through innovative technology, compliance knowledge, and managed services operations related to commercial contracts, increasing government regulation, and pricing pressures.
“Our vision is to address the issues that have been impacting our pharma clients as they pursue cost efficiencies, while gaining greater visibility into critical commercial activities,” says Mel Walker, managing principal, Deloitte Advisory, Deloitte & Touche. “Business decisions today are often stalled due to lengthy software updates and slow system response times. We designed ExaLink as a true hybrid cloud platform that offers data security and scalability, operational management and access to business information that simply didn’t exist previously. Data functions that are cost centers can now be value drivers because of greater focus into pre-deal analysis, post-deal monitoring, pricing discrepancies, and the identification of lost revenue.”
ExaLink can incorporate new or changed compliance requirements and address their impact on pricing strategy; and remain in control of business performance, methodologies, and processes while eliminating system maintenance and upgrade expenses.
The client portal allows immediate and mobile access to integrated business insights; can create day-one dashboards that enhance pricing decisions and contract negotiations; gives full visibility into workflows; and offers quick access to analysts and industry specialists with years of experience.
