Contract Research Organisations (CRO) are dynamic businesses that are constantly reacting to client-driven, regulatory-driven, and other business requirements that are placed on them. As large pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device companies continue to navigate changes to their regulatory environment and expand their businesses globally, their CRO service providers are expected to follow suit. As a result, the need to manage global studies in a profitable and efficient manner has never been so prevalent.
Overcoming these challenges can be the difference between success and failure in the CRO market. Having complete visibility across your business, including any global operations, is now an organisational imperative. This can only be achieved through the use of an integrated ERP software platform that provides real-time insight into the performance of your finances, clients, projects, and employees.
Services-driven organisations face unique challenges not encountered in other industries. Having intelligent tools that help you manage critical financial resources, effectively sell and deliver project-based services, manage valuable human capital, and quickly react to changing client needs can be the difference between success and failure.
