During my 12 years in the pharma industry, I literally saw dozens of “tools,” “solutions” or clever “data applications” that opened up the magical black hole that is “BIG DATA.” And frankly, what did we get out of them? …Well, exactly what they advertised – a BIG pile of DATA!
It didn’t tell us much, and we didn’t change the world (surprisingly). It wasn’t until I realized that it isn’t just about the technology, but also about how we use it, that I started to see a difference. Focus and unification across a company is the key – without this, even the best tech will fail.
Companies – and in particular, Supply Chain leaders and teams – intuitively know there are problems and bottlenecks within their processes, but isolating and removing them is not so easy. Rather than being given 1,000s of KPIs they will never fully use and which will only distract them, they need help finding and focusing on, as an enterprise, those few yet very important data points that reveal the HUGE IMPROVEMENTS inevitably hiding out there – and often worth millions.
I hope I’m stating the obvious when I say: Nowadays, anyone with good database skills and a bit of imagination into what a good user experience looks like can throw together a “Business Intelligence” app with a thousand standard metrics based on “best practice.” …But do these tools really drive change in your business? The short answer is NO.
But what if there were a team of people who had actually achieved millions of dollars’ worth of Supply Chain improvements in the pharmaceutical industry, with experience in all the relevant processes & challenges – from manufacturing right through to delivery of products across the supply chain? And what if with all this real-world experience, they could rapidly target where the biggest issues typically reside and show you how to find them instantly? In other words – A shortcut to the most powerful data and the huge potential savings across your supply chain… that would be interesting, right?
“We give you the information and you make the changes.”
WELL, THAT TEAM DOES EXIST, AND WE’RE HERE TO DO THINGS A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY…
Not only have we lived and breathed pharma (and automotive!) supply chains at Blinx, but we have taken all of that experience and intelligence and built it directly into our cloud-based, digital supply chain engine to bring you something truly special! Not only that, but we have combined this with cutting-edge gaming technology to ensure the best possible user experience, on any device!
You and your teams don’t have to waste time trawling through Big Data anymore, because Blinx will show you where to look. We give you the information in your hands and you work with your business teams to make the changes.
With Blinx, our focus is very different. We will not install a product and say, “Here’s all your data, enjoy exploring it! You can create any report you’d like!” That’s no more than data access – we want results!
The starting point with Blinx is the immediate opportunities, bottlenecks and alerts we see through our intelligent data modelling and visualisations. Next, we integrate this information into your daily business processes, asking every day, “What are you doing to improve, and by when?!”
We call this “Expert Tech” - Where practical industry expertise meets world-class innovative technology.
COME SAY HELLO, AND LET’S SEE HOW FAST BLINX COULD HELP YOU ACHIEVE YOUR SUPPLY CHAIN TARGETED SAVINGS!
