Drive production with the right information engine

When looking to reduce production costs, pharmaceutical manufacturers must still ensure the quality and safety of products. Initiatives by regulatory agencies for electronic record keeping add further incentives to modernize processes. Using QlikView, production planners and managers:

  • Refine/extend process improvement methodologies (Six Sigma, Lean)
  • Work with dashboards and reporting customized to area of responsibility
  • Integrate production data with other business and compliance data
  • Contribute to higher levels of customer service and regulatory confidence
  • Extend operational cost reductions beyond the production floor

Regulatory Compliance

Minimize compliance risks and costs

Companies tend to approach each compliance requirement as a separate management program. Best practice pharmaceutical companies integrate compliance governance within their enterprise processes. Using QlikView, corporate compliance officers can:

  • Implement an enterprise compliance architecture
  • Collect, organize and analyze large volumes of compliance data
  • Standardize analysis and reporting for a myriad of regulatory standards
  • Track effectiveness of compliance programs
  • Reduce the risk and cost of compliance


Simplify the job with better answers and processes

Companies need more automated and agile processes to manage and report financial performance. But manual intervention and poor visibility into accounting processes and the underlying data create obstacles. Using QlikView, financial executives:

  • Automate processes to consolidate financial reporting
  • Track P/L views from the enterprise to individual cost centers
  • Improve financial controls and predictability of performance
  • Follow progress toward revenue targets with scorecard KPIs
  • Reduce the time and cost of regulatory compliance (IFRS, SOX, etc.)
