The launch of pci | bridge is one of many initiatives that PCI has undertaken to incorporate digital transformation as core to its business strategy
PCI Pharma Services (PCI) has announced pci | bridge, a digital platform that aims to give customers “immediate visibility into their clinical and commercial supply chain and provide instantaneous data and insights to inform decision-making”.
The launch of pci | bridge is one of many initiatives that PCI has undertaken to incorporate digital transformation as core to its business strategy.
A direct connection between PCI and clients, the platform will make real-time information accessible to clients including inventory, production, distribution and shipping data, presented in organized, customizable formats. The platform also features a document repository where electronic paperwork can be stored and accessed in one place, and signatures secured on the platform.
The technology behind pci | bridge will closely and securely integrate PCI’s systems with those of clients so that the supply chain can be managed by both parties. This has the potential to eliminate manual processes that are often time intensive for both sides.
“At PCI, we are always looking to the future and could see the potential that technology and digital systems held for the pharmaceutical supply chain industry,” said Salim Haffar, Chief Executive Officer, PCI Pharma Services. “Twelve months ago, we made the deliberate decision as an organization to invest more in this area, with the goal of enhancing client experiences, digitizing business processes and aligning our IT to scale as we grow. The launch of pci | bridge represents a key milestone achievement in our digital transformation journey. We believe our unique offering will simplify how our clients interact with us and create a leading-edge client experience.”
“Seeking input from multiple customers to understand how we hope to use the platform and previewing iterations with us is invaluable in terms of structuring the tool so it can actually be helpful to our work,” said Wendy Xia, Senior Director, Head of Supply Chain at Agios Pharmaceuticals, a key PCI client who collaborated with the company on pci | bridge. “I am very excited about my team using pci | bridge because I think it will greatly increase productivity and efficiency on both ends.”
