Investment in Procurement and Sourcing

A Must for Pre-Commercial Life Science Companies

THIS WEBINAR WAS RECORDED ON THE

November 17, 2016

DURATION

60 min

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
