Pharma industry challenges
From declining R&D returns to rising costs
For research and development
Today’s connected Pharma organizations are taking advantage of digital and network transformation to speed up development of new treatments.
|Never leave your private network when connecting to cloud-based research data and applications.
|Conduct virtual clinical trials. Collaborate internally and externally with research staff, clinicians, patients, and others.
|Clinicians need solutions to monitor data on remote-trial patients and use content to ease discomfort.
|Use digital signage to bring data to life, helping keep employees informed and engaged.
|Defend intellectual property as your ecosystem grows larger and more complex.
For plant and distribution
Our connectivity capabilities—including 5G/LTE-M, Wi-Fi®, and in-building solutions—provide the robust platform needed for digital transformation in Pharma manufacturing.
|Help increase customer satisfaction by providing near-real-time visibility into delivery status of purchases.
|Help reduce plant costs and enhance product quality with predictive maintenance.
|Deliver low latency, highly reliable network performance, and increased privacy and security for asset tracking, robotics,
and factory floor.
|Monitor material and product conditions using IoT devices for cold chain temperature control and counterfeit prevention.
|Improve field efficiency with mobile devices and business applications designed to meet staff needs.
|Maximize bandwidth for IoT devices while maintaining security and reliability.
For marketing and sales
Connect employees with clinicians and integrate resources with cloud-based applications, AR and VR data visualization, voice and collaboration solutions, and remote-access resources to provide greater flexibility and information access.
|Equip sellers to connect to cloud-based data and applications to share with clinicians offsite.
|Gain macro insights on patient/clinician data to drive analytics-based marketing and sales.
|Access and manage network applications more efficiently as you connect siloed environments.
|Help employees easily engage with clinicians in other locations, and enhance the customer experience by reducing response time to queries.
|Enable high-bandwidth access for remote teams; make it easier for remote workers to train and keep up with compliance requirements.
For the COVID-19 vaccine
Increased monitoring at every stage of production and transportation, from location tracking to temperature and cold storage monitoring, for continuous visibility on environmental condition.
|Monitor patients and their vitals (i.e., temperature, blood pressure) between and after vaccine doses; connect them to telehealth care, if needed.
