Life Sciences

Pharmaceutical and life sciences companies need visibility into their Supply Chain to ensure availability and reliability of finished goods and raw materials. Decentralized procurement processes and a consolidated view of spend data are imperative to maximize utilization of resources. In addition, collaboration with stakeholders and a seamless extended Supply Chain facilitate uninterrupted product flow and statutory compliance.

Bristlecone offers planning, collaboration, and analytics solutions that help pharma and life sciences companies develop responsive Supply Chains. Our solutions address end-to-end requirements – from demand forecasting for generic drugs to production and procurement planning for Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs). Reliable order data and accurate delivery schedules enable superior inventory management of raw materials, intermediates, finished goods, blends, and packing materials.

Bristlecone NOW accelerators combine time-to-benefit, scalability, flexibility, and best practices to harmonize processes. Our DemandPlanningNOW solution offers demand evaluation in off line mode and enables seamless integration to SAP system. We use proprietary data extractor kits and file validation tools to automate data upload, integrate data from disparate systems, and ensure a ‘single source of truth.’
