A $1 billion global generic pharmaceutical manufacturer headquartered in the U.S. with more than 20 manufacturing sites.
The client decided to use their current managed service provider as their auditor globally and needed to find another provider to complete their U.S. government pricing calculations. Standing up an entire government pricing platform takes subject matter expertise, systems and time, which the company did not have.
The immediate result was that the U.S. unit was able to shift providers as required but was also able to have validation of its current processes, and through this, uncovered some improvements in the process. Using the managed services option allowed the client to reduce their footprint to bring on staff and systems and leverage subject matter professionals to improve their knowledge in this area by providing them confidence in the results senior leadership certifies each cycle.
