Eprocurement in the Life Sciences: On the Rise
Leading-edge life sciences organizations see eprocurement not only as a proven way to generate savings through strategic sourcing and better terms and conditions with suppliers, but also to bring greater efficiency to research and development efforts.
Several well known pharmaceutical companies are currently leveraging the strategic alliance between Ceiba Solutions and SciQuest to cost effectively and quickly integrate their eprocurement solutions and ERP systems, a key step in creating a closed loop system that eliminates the time-consuming manual purchasing processes so common in the lab environment. As a result, researchers at these organizations enjoy fast and easy access to the critical supplies that are typically purchased ad hoc as experiments evolve--a hallmark of effective, results-oriented research and development operations.
