New Delhi — India’s fourth-largest pharmaceutical manufacturing company Mankind Pharma said that it has collaborated with technology consulting firm Accenture to digitally overhaul business processes across key functions such as finance, supply chain, sales and procurement.
The company said that as part of the project, Accenture deployed a digital platform based on SAP S/4HANA, a Microsoft Azure cloud-based data lake and Tableau dashboards, providing cloud-based analytics to help Mankind Pharma get better visibility into its global business operations and performance.
The combination technology enables the pharmaceutical company to integrates data in real-time from multiple sources across the supply chain, workforce and sales to provide a consolidated view of market insights. This can help the management team make informed decisions around business strategy, planning and product development, said the company.
The project was completed remotely during the ongoing pandemic with no impact on business continuity, claimed the consulting firm.
“Digitally transforming our business processes with support from Accenture has been key to unlocking value trapped within the organization, accelerating real-time decision making and improving our product innovation lifecycle,” stated Arjun Juneja, chief operating officer, Mankind Pharma.
“Digital reinvention can not only help pharma companies deliver high-quality and hyper-personalized services, but also improve business performance and build resilience against future disruptions. We are focused on helping Mankind Pharma embrace change and emerge as a data-driven enterprise to enhance its customer-centricity bringing innovative offerings to market at a faster pace and scale for patients,” said Rishabh Bindlish, India Life Sciences and global generics lead, Accenture.
