Business Drivers

BE-COMPLIANT: ENSURE ROBUST WAYS OF WORKING

  • Labelling and artwork presents a significant compliance risk. This represents one of the largest causes of recalls in the pharmaceutical and medical industry. For many companies, their current capabilities are struggling to meet today’s requirements.

BE-CAPABLE: HAVE THE RIGHT CAPABILITIES TO MEET YOUR COMPANY’S BUSINESS STRATEGY

  • There are important and immediate business challenges facing the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry. Pharmaceutical and other healthcare companies are facing one of the most difficult periods in their history.
  • Delivering many new product variants into as many different markets as quickly as possible is vital for their short and long-term viability. At the same time, they need to enhance their reputation with regulators, governments, the public and other key stakeholders.
  • Packaging artwork management capabilities are critical to delivering this business strategy. Essential to the strategy described above is the need to be able to develop, deliver and maintain a significantly increased number of packaging artwork designs for a rapidly expanding number of markets.
  • For many companies, today’s capabilities will not achieve this without significant improvement.

BE-CROSS FUNCTIONAL: LABELLING AND ARTWORK IMPACTS MANY PARTS OF YOUR BUSINESS

  • Delivering quality labelling and artwork is a complex endeavour involving many moving parts.
  • In the largest organisations, artwork capabilities involve thousands of people, working across many internal functions, in more than one hundred countries, involving tens, if not hundreds of external organisations. The capabilities require the skilful design and management of integrated business processes, organisations and facilities, which are enabled by a suite of sophisticated information technology systems.
  • In smaller companies, whilst the scale is reduced, the fundamental challenges remain unchanged. Establishing and delivering improvements in artwork capabilities is a significant, but achievable change management challenge.
  • Delivering change in this area requires the management of a complex interaction of business processes: people in many different functions, organisations and countries using many, often validated information technology tools.
  • This requires careful and skilled project and change management skills to do it effectively if significant compliance risks are to be avoided.
