Smart Outsourcing: Strategic Alignment, Risk Management, and New Relationships

Outsourcing in the pharmaceutical industry, until recently, has been largely confined to commercial manufacturing, packaging, and support for clinical trials. The industry is rapidly changing; companies are facing rising costs, a fast evolving global market, and weak pipelines. 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:

Q&A eBook with QT9 Software: Benefits of Automating Your Quality Management System with Software

Industry regulations can make life for medical device manufacturers very challenging. Regulations are there for a reason and are required to grow and improve your business. This is different than in most manufacturing sectors.

Demonstrating compliance to these various regulations requires meticulous record management. As an example; the ability to easily manage and maintain your records for Product Design, can provide an organization with a competitive edge for getting new products, or enhancing existing products for their market.

QT9 Software will be speaking at our American Medical Device Summit taking place October 4-5th, 2017 in Chicago, IL. The presentation topic will be on the “Benefits of Automating Your Quality Management System with Software.” We asked Brant a few questions about quality management, issues medical device manufacturers are facing today, and how to save time and money in the industry.

Please, take a look at our Q&A eBook with Brant Engelhart from QT9 Software below!

How Medical Device Manufacturers Can Optimize Quality, Lower Costs, and Increase Efficiency

Medical device manufacturing has minimal tolerance for error—and quality is of the utmost importance. If your products don’t deliver what you promise, lives can be at stake. At the same time, product returns erode your profit margins, while customer satisfaction can make—or break—your reputation. For companies with unique patented products, meeting demand puts added pressure on every stage of your supply chain.

This white paper by the Copley Consulting Group explains how you can make a commitment to lean processes while raising your quality standards, improving efficiency, and driving down costs. It’s important to create efficiencies in your manufacturing processes, but this often involves taking small incremental steps.

Find out more about educating your organization about these opportunities, driving down costs, and systematically removing waste and uneven workloads from your manufacturing processes below:
