Bio Supply Management Alliance to present “Business Analytics in the Global Biotech Industry” webinar and round table

Pelyco Systems to Sponsor Online Discussion on Distributed Biotech Supply Chain Challenges with Industry Leaders on June 25, 2010

Ottawa, Ont. and San Francisco, CA: (May 28, 2010) – The Bio Supply Management Alliance and Pelyco Systems, a global provider of web-based, collaborative supply chain/logistics visibility and spreadsheet management solutions, today announced a joint online webinar and roundtable discussion entitled “Business Analytics in the Global Biotech Industry.” Roundtable guests include prominent senior executives in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry.

Biotechnology and pharmaceuticals continue to grow using a distributed global business model. The need for collaboration between R&D, operations, quality and other parts of the organization is an ongoing need. Clinical results, supply chain status and vendor management are just a few parts of the organization where companies are struggling to keep up with an increasing need to communicate and collaborate more rapidly and effectively.

Roundtable guest speakers include:
  • Thomas Panzer, VP Global Supply Chain Management for Product Supply Biotech for Bayer HealthCare
  • Mark Buck, Global Supply Chain and Procurement Leader at Bio-Rad Laboratories
  • David Windsheimer, VP Global Logistics at Life Technologies
The scope of the webinar includes:
  • Turning data into knowledge, and knowledge into effective decisions and plans
  • Bringing disparate supply chain and logistics data into focus for operations and management
  • Bridging the gaps with powerful analytics, secure spreadsheets and visibility reporting
  • Uncontrolled static spreadsheet use is widespread throughout most organizations for analytics and reporting
Pelyco's SmartSpreadSheet™ is a solution to bridge gaps with data management, to secure analytics spreadsheets and increase reporting visibility. The concepts in this webinar and information will be introduced and made available for follow-up at the Biotech Supply Chain Academy Conference in October 2010.

Pelyco Systems is a leading provider of collaborative Supply Chain/Logistics Visibility and Spreadsheet Management Solutions.
