webinar description

For many companies, procurement and sourcing are back office functions distributed between anyone who has the time to place an order or find a supplier. Unfortunately, this ad hoc approach not only introduces risk and uncertainty into the continuity of the development and pre-launch processes, it also passes over a huge opportunity to maximize resource efficiency and innovation.

On November 17th, Matchbook is hosting a case study webinar that will explore the reasons why an investment in procurement and sourcing is a ‘must’ for pre-commercial life science companies. We will discuss the benefits of formal procurement, through a case study focused on how one biopharmaceutical company worked with a third party service provider to quickly bring their spend under management and increase collaboration with suppliers.

Reasons to attend the webinar:
  • The first and simplest investment pre-commercial life science companies should make in procurement

  • How to ensure that procurement and sourcing professionals are involved at the appropriate times in the budgetary planning and purchasing processes

  • The strategic benefits of clarifying where procurement should sit in the organizational chart and what steps in the end to end process flow will be managed centrally
