Genpact and iContracts Help Pharmaceutical, Biotech, and Medical Device Companies Transform Contract Management Operations
Turnkey cloud-based solution combines Genpact's Lean Digital approach with iContracts' commercial contracting platform to streamline processes and reduce costs
BRIDGEWATER, N.J. and NEW YORK, Jan. 12, 2016 - Genpact (NYSE: G), a global leader in digitally-powered business process management and services, and iContracts, a leading provider of cloud-based contract, compliance, and revenue management solutions, are partnering to help leading pharmaceutical, biotech, and medical device companies transform their contract management operations with an innovative operating model to significantly reduce costs and improve accuracy and speed.
Contract management in the life sciences market often involves an unwieldy collection of spreadsheets, customer applications, cluttered filing cabinets, and scattered electronic directories that increase costs and waste professionals' time with inefficient processes. Life sciences manufacturers are estimated to pay more than $100 billion annually in rebates, discounts, and chargebacks, and spend an additional $1 billion in operations, technology, analytics, and master data management to eliminate unnecessary profit and revenue leakage. With these pressures top of mind, they also seek to deliver best-in-class accuracy, timeliness, and low cost operations in their end-to-end contract management processes.
The Genpact-iContracts joint solution addresses the above challenges by providing a single supplier for all contract management processes. Life sciences companies can therefore streamline their operations and the business process outsourcing (BPO) environment provides a cost-effective way to access leading-edge digital technologies, analytics, and a vast resource of professionals with deep process expertise and domain knowledge.
This joint offering delivers optimal contract management operations with up to 100 percent timeliness and accuracy, and up to 60 percent reduced operating costs in a one-stop turn-key solution. The solution combines the power of iContract's contract management as-a-service (CMaaS) platform with Genpact's Lean Digital approach that harnesses digital process-centric technologies with design thinking methods focused on the end customer and Lean principles focused on agility.
"By leveraging Genpact's Lean Digital approach and expertise working with top tier life sciences companies with iContracts' leading cloud platform, clients can completely rearchitect their middle and back office contract management processes to align to their business outcomes," said B.K. Kalra, senior vice president and business leader, Consumer Goods, Retail and Life Sciences, at Genpact. "Our joint offering also eliminates the need to continuously invest in consultants, new technology, and expensive upgrades, or worry about process quality and discipline over time."
"iContracts is proud to work with Genpact to help the industry's largest companies better manage critical contract management related processes to reduce costs, optimize revenue, and ensure compliance," said A. Leigh Powell, chief executive officer at iContracts. "While iContracts already counts multiple Fortune 50 companies, two of the top 10 generics manufacturers, and numerous multi-billion dollar public entities among our 200+ clients, we look forward to significantly growing our client base with life sciences' largest manufacturers."
