«Because of increasing interest in human capital and investment in public health, the pharmaceutical industry responds to emerging technologies faster than other industries. High-tech pharmaceutical companies all over the world require not only an automated production process but also the implementation of new technologies in their business processes. However, most of the products offered by IT developers are aimed at solving narrow and precise tasks, be it transition to electronic document circulation or some complicated algorithms to calculate revenue in newly-opened selling points. On the contrary, we are offering a comprehensive IT ecosystem which unifies all the data across a pharmaceutical company and enables taking balanced but quick managerial decisions based on the most relevant data on the sales, inventories, product recalls, as well as partner- and client-related data».
