In biomanufacturing, healthcare technology, Life sciences, logistics, manufacturer, manufacturing, marketing, medical device, pharmaceutical, technology by Generis0 Comments

Outsourcing in the pharmaceutical industry, until recently, has been largely confined to commercial manufacturing, packaging, and support for clinical trials.

Many companies are outsourcing activities that have historically been kept in house, freeing themselves to concentrate on their core competencies and become more agile in responding to changing conditions. These new outsourcing models include discovery and R&D, regulatory, chemistry and manufacturing controls (CMC) support, and back office sales and marketing activities—virtually no activity is out of bounds. Instead of building or acquiring specialized technologies and facilities, many companies are seeking access to them elsewhere. Smart outsourcing provides the following operational and business benefits: To learn more about smart outsourcing and what the operational and business benefits are, check out this white paper by OQSIE
