Accelerate innovation and bring life-saving products to market

INDUSTRY overview

Recent advances in the field of life sciences have led to improvements in quality of care and health outcomes around the world, but the industry is also in the midst of ongoing transformation due to internal and external pressures that will have unprecedented long-term effects. Technology is revolutionizing how pharmaceutical companies research, manufacture, distribute, and market new products. Players across the industry must invest in the adoption and implementation of cutting-edge technologies while preparing for large-scale regulatory change.

Change Management

After an acquisition that doubled its size, a global pharmaceutical company needed to integrate its people, processes, and technology. SEI led the migration of seven commercial business units onto an integrated commercial capabilities platform. We retired five redundant systems and helped generate over $3 million in annual operating expense savings.

Data Privacy

SEI was engaged by a global pharmaceutical company to accelerate the maturity of its privacy program. We developed a global systems inventory to maintain accurate data mapping and improve responses to data subject requests. The engagement resulted in an overall increase in program efficiency and global privacy improvements.

Product Launch

A leading biotech company needed to deploy a new salesforce for an upcoming product launch in a new therapeutic area. SEI led salesforce enablement activities for the company’s 320-person sales team. As a result of SEI’s broad-based efforts, the company witnessed first-year sales that aligned with its ambitious pre-launch forecasts.
