The Solution

Life Sciences companies, particularly those relying on capital from external investors to advance R&D projects and bring new products to market demand to manage stronger control on the R&D Portfolio of projects and budgets.

R&D Project teams which are part of the portfolio consisting of scientists, physicians, technicians, product & manufacturing engineers, IT Support Staff, and procurement personnel, need to be structurally managed by assigned project managers for Planning, Budgeting, Control, and Performance Analytics.
