The Only Dedicated Integrated Chemical Sourcing and Spend Management Solution
Powerful Tools to Manage Risk and Provide Inventory Visibility & Efficiency
Chemical management is crucial to pharmaceutical and life science organizations. These materials are the backbone of critical research, fueling the engine of discovery. Their flow from suppliers to individual labs should be seamless to maintain the rapid pace of research and development. Hundreds of labs across the world have selected JAGGAER’s unique, integrated solution to source chemicals and manage and them through their entire lifecycle.
JAGGAER provides the only enterprise-ready chemical inventory lifecycle management solution designed specifically for the efficient processing of reagents. Locating the chemicals needed, when they’re needed, through an intuitive, easy to use platform powered by the industry’s first triple-federated search, allows researchers to make better decisions, faster—and at the optimal price point.
The chemicals necessary to the innovation of new, life-saving drugs can pose health, environmental, and security risks, and are highly regulated. JAGGAER allows organizations to gain visibility into the acquisition, tracking, reporting and disposal of chemicals and ensures they are compliant with applicable regulations, certifications, and purchasing limits. With the robust capabilities of this toolset, it’s no surprise eight of the top 10 global life science companies trust JAGGAER with the procurement and management of materials and building blocks, key to their groundbreaking discoveries.
A large Life Sciences company needed a solution to empower its 65,000+ employees to take advantage of cost savings and efficiencies in their purchasing activities. There was no ability for the organization to assure that large, global contract discounts were being taken advantage of on a regional level, because an easy, searchable set of catalogs did not exist. Users missed out on the cost savings from preferred vendors, and suffered through an inefficient ordering process that collectively eroded productivity and profitability.
The Company needed a solution that would play nicely with existing technology investments and seamlessly integrate with SAP in over 15 countries. With annual company revenues near $25 billion, this was no small feat.
Help arrived in the form of JAGGAER’s ERM and Spend Director Life Sciences bundled solutions, which the Company integrated with SAP in North American, European, Asian, and Australian locations. In less than 90 days, JAGGAER helped the Company develop over 100 supplier catalogs replete with company-negotiated pricing for more than a million items. The Company was able to control more than 95 percent of spend with the solution, and increased contract compliance by 50 percent—all within the first year. JAGGAER helped track and manage inventory and provided built-in compliance checks, leading to further efficiency and lower risk. Combined, these solutions led to an ROI upwards of 100 percent in the first year.
“We’ve been using JAGGAER’s business automation solutions for years, and the Enterprise Reagent Manager adds another critical layer of efficiency and automation. The compounds we develop require near-immediate access to appropriate supplies and materials. ERM facilitates that access.”
