Discover how Almac partners with pharmaceutical and biotech sponsors to build optimized and efficient supply chains in their upcoming webinar, Developing Effective Clinical Supply Chain Strategies Utilizing Forecasting Technology, presented by Caitlyn Clauss.

Building an effective clinical supply chain that factors in the increasing challenge of getting the necessary drug to the patient in a timely manner has never been so important.

To accommodate the scale and complexity of today’s clinical trials, sponsors require a sophisticated and responsive supply chain that provides agility, speed and control of which accurately forecasting patient need is critical to delivering a successful trial.

The number and complexity of variables affecting supply forecasting has grown to include intricate protocol design (e.g. blinding, variable dosing, cohort expansion), increased costs of investigative and comparator drugs, patient recruitment challenges and increased regulatory requirements.

This webinar will discuss how by leveraging supply forecasting and demand planning technology, sponsors are able to create optimized and flexible supply chain operations while mitigating risk, preventing site stock-outs, reducing waste, and controlling cost.
