The pace of change is accelerating rapidly in pharmaceutical and life science industries. Staying ahead is more difficult than ever. But with the right information, employees can be just as productive working in the field as they are in the office. Accounting or business management systems that can’t deliver information where it’s needed can create bottle necks that slow everything down from the front office to R&D and production. In an industry where getting there first is a benchmark to success, this is unacceptable.
Extend the reach of information
Life sciences employees have become accustomed to having the personal information and connections they need at their fingertips no matter where they are. If your business is not using technology to promote that same social connectivity in the workplace, you are missing opportunities to better serve your people and communicate with investors.
Transform the way your people work with a solution that works the way they want to use it ‒ over the web, through a SharePoint portal or using a traditional desktop computer. With a business solution from Microsoft, employees can perform business processes and connect through the tools and channels they’re used to ‒ such as instant messaging, email, voice and presence. And remote staff members have the flexibility they expect, so they can work and be productive wherever they are.
Connectivity drives satisfaction
By extending access to your life sciences business management systems and your productivity tools like Microsoft Office, you give your people greater flexibility, help them be more productive and ultimately provide a better experience for your customers. For example:
- Employees working from home or on the road can access documents, submit or approve orders according to established workflows, and collaborate with others to keep business moving.
- Remote self-service capabilities allow employees to streamline administrative tasks, like entering payroll hours, tracking time and accessing HR documents.
- Automated requisition management allows employees to submit purchase requisitions online which will route to managers for approval and on to the purchase order system.
- Access customer records to provide accurate, timely service and extend sales opportunities.
