Business Applications in medium-sized companies in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries

Less complexity. More efficiency. We stand for both.

Medium-sized companies (SMEs) in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries have recognized their chance: Innovative scalable IT solutions, such as cloud-based and mobile business applications, are not only growing, but they also guarantee flexible capacities and an efficient cost control.

With the right Compliance expertise, they can also be used in accordance with regulation standards.

For over 18 years, ARCONDIS has been helping IT departments handle your business applications challenges.

Whether it be the introduction or optimization of applications, process improvement or data management: We provide a clear starting point, take over the project management and business analysis, manage the stakeholders and accompany the implementation.

This ranges from research and development to regulatory affairs to commercial operations. It also spans from coordinated strategies to agile processes to efficiently used technology.

Our pharmaceutical expertise and our experience with medium-sized companies guarantee that we implement even your most complex requirements in practical business applications that grow with your company. We do this in a way that not only ensures a high level of acceptance among your customers, but also ensures the maintainability by your IT management.

 

From strategy to implementation – everything from a single source.

First-class concepts and strategies for your business applications alone do not offer any added value. That is why we implement them for you from A to Z. Our consulting work is only done once the results are achieved in your everyday work and the transfer of expertise to you has been completed. In the process, we protect your financial interests and secure your return on investment.

More than 30 regional pharmaceutical Customers have now come to attribute equally as much value to this as do the global Big Pharma. Challenge us and call us at one of our Locations!
