Meeting regulatory and compliance reporting needs. Managing complex research data and activities. Ensuring your field sales force has ready access to the information it needs to be successful. Technology is imperative to your organization’s success. Yet, the need to focus on core businesses makes it hard for many mid-sized biotechnology companies to justify all of the technology skills required to run their operations. Have you considered the following:
- Do you have sufficient, dedicated IT resources internally to handle issues and prepare for the future?
- Is your organization able to meet regulatory compliance and reporting requirements efficiently?
- Are you following a plan to keep your technology up to date with your organization’s business and goals
- Do you rely on an outside vendor to maintain your technology environment?
- Does your vendor really understand the biotechnology industry and the critical systems that keep your business running?
