Top 10 Pharma Outsourcing Companies in APAC - 2022


The pharmaceutical industry is characterized by years-long R&D cycles, as well as an acute need for speed when it comes to time-to-market. As a result, traditionally sales force automation and other backoffice automation services have been the main money earners when it comes to pharma outsourcing.

The advent of robotic process automation (RPA) in their field of pharmaceutical R&D and manufacturing promises to change the game, as using digital robots to perform high-volume and repeatable tasks, CROs and CMOs can execute recurring processes faster, and more efficiently. This is further accentuated by the fact that RPA solutions are easily implemented without impacting IT-managed infrastructure or technology resources, thereby saving companies considerable time and money while outsourcing.

To put the spotlight on such key developments in the industry, Pharma Tech Outlook APAC illustrates how CMOs and CROs are changing the pharma outsourcing space. This edition also features thought leadership articles from subject matter experts. Some of the exclusive insights are authored by Nick Thomson, Senior Director, Chemical Research and Development, Pfizer Inc; Dr. Sarah Tregenza PhD, BSc (Hons), APAC Oncology Medical Affairs Director, Pierre Fabre; and Dannarjaya Harinta Sri, VP Operations and Technology, PT Anugerah Pharmindo Lestari (APL).
