Innovation in Project Management for Pharma

Drive breakthrough innovations for patients: cplace helps pharmaceutical companies speed up drug discovery and improve efficiency in drug development.

cplace is an open, state-of-the-art software platform that meets even the most demanding requirements for today’s PPM systems. cplace is used by leading pharmaceutical companies like Roche to make their Project and Portfolio Management  faster, more efficient, and more transparent – which translates to shorter time-to-market for their healthcare solutions. cplace gives research-based pharmaceutical companies more transparency into their investments, and more agility and speed in research and development.

Challenges holding pharmaceutical companies back

Companies face the challenge that existing PPM systems are often not user-friendly. This results in two separate planning worlds: political planning and real project planning. The latter often takes place in “shadow IT” (e.g., Excel), resulting in a complex software landscape. Employees struggle with outdated, difficult-to-use systems that make reporting time consuming and costly. The use of shadow IT compromises data quality, and the ongoing digitalization further amplifies the problem.

cplace eliminates these challenges, unifies planning worlds and optimizes data quality for efficient and user-friendly Project Management.

Intuitive user interfaces

cplace is the type of software users love to use. It provides them with digital workspaces that cater for their individual needs while interconnecting them on the same database and platform. What is more, users don’t get overwhelmed by features they don’t need or use. cplace does not represent the smallest common denominator for the entire company but gives each user the perfect work environment they need while ensuring a well-maintained common data basis.

Challenges of Stakeholder Communication

Complex stakeholder interaction depends on the availability of transparent and reliable information at all times. Project teams require an overview of their project activities to be able to manage their projects, organize the team, and capture tasks and decisions. In addition, teams need to collaborate across functions and communicate with their stakeholders throughout the company. On the other hand, stakeholders require a realistic helicopter view to manage financials, coordinate supply, and keep track of portfolio success. All things considered, transparent and reliable information at any time is key to enabling successful collaboration.

Integration of Resource and Cost Management

cplace helps managers prepare high-level cost forecasts, detect deviations, and allocate the right resources to the right projects.

Software must be able to meet the unique needs of each team without having to compromise. Inflexible and complex standard solutions are often not capable of doing so, quickly overwhelm their users and are therefore doomed to failure.
