Pharmaceutical

Why is it important?

The pharmaceutical industry has always been particularly challenging given regulatory requirements that make operational improvements burdensome. An ongoing challenge is increasing competition in mature product segments, putting pressure on new product development and, in parallel, work towards “continuous compliance," and now COVID-19.
