Life Sciences

Overview

The life sciences industry needs to adapt its business model and operations—and fast.

Leading pharma, biotech, and medical devices companies are looking to optimize global operations, including Finance & Accounting (F&A), Human Resources (HR), safety and regulatory processes, commercial operations, R&D operations, as well as IT functions. They can do this through business process transformation via technology, process reengineering, or analytics—enabled by the adoption of advanced operating models, for example, in shared services, outsourcing, or Global Business Services (GBS).

More than 10 of the top 25 global life sciences companies partner with Genpact for enterprise process optimization, process reengineering, analytics, and outsourcing for a number of functions, such as F&A, contact centers, procurement services, access and reimbursement, to name a few.

Approach

Genpact improves the efficiency and effectiveness of business processes and enables more informed business decisions. Acting as an extension of our client’s organization, we optimize operational performance through the right mix of process, analytics, and technology.

By expanding on the expertise gained through our Lean Six Sigma heritage, Genpact has developed the science behind improved operational effectiveness—Smart Enterprise Processes (SEPSM). SEPSM helps identify the key metrics that drive the desired impact, and it determines gaps through granular data analysis and benchmarks. Subsequently, it pinpoints the operational practices that will improve those metrics, resulting in targeted interventions for maximizing process effectiveness and achieving tighter controls resulting in stringent regulatory compliance; faster time to market; increased revenues; and improved capacity and productivity for better cost management.

Data and information are the lifeblood of the life sciences industry, but interpreting those data requires the right people and processes. Through Smart Decision Solutions—comprising analytics and reengineering—life sciences enterprises can intelligently interpret the large amounts of data to which they have access and evolve their business practices.

Technology is the enabler of great processes. Genpact has a unique, process-centric approach to enterprise, analytical, cloud-enabled, mobile, and social collaboration technologies. The result is more agile, targeted, and cost effective use of technology. Additionally, Genpact is a leading provider of global service desk and remote infrastructure management solutions.
