One of the greatest challenges faced by most vendors in the pharmaceutical contract manufacturing market is the lack of transparency and information integration in the whole supply chain process.

If companies are equipped with a centralized system, they will be able to observe changes in inventory and can order shipments as per requirements. Distribution vehicles or shipments can be redirected to obtain drugs in the required areas.
With the right integration of available data from all the stages within the supply chain, companies can keep track of orders and delivery rates. This can e ectively cure the delays and disruptions in the pharmaceutical supply chain, making the entire value chain e ectively responsive to the unmet medical needs.
