Accruent - Providing Pharmaceutical Manufacturers with Capabilities to Compete

Helping nine out of 10 of the world’s biggest pharmaceutical companies achieve compliance

Pharmaceutical manufacturers must adhere to industry compliance standards to introduce products to market faster and in high volumes. This requires document management systems to serve as a comprehensive solution to control, manage, and streamline documentation and information related to the manufacturing process, ultimately establishing a ‘single source of truth’. Meridian helps 9 of 10 world’s biggest pharmaceutical companies:

  • Maintain compliance and validation
  • Streamline document management
  • Ensure safety and compliance
  • Maximise company-wide collaboration
  • Achieve a single source of asset information

Capitalise on the IoT that is transforming pharmaceutical manufacturing

Digitisation of processes and data across the value chain along with the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) is transforming the pharmaceutical sector helping to; reduce time-to-market for drugs, use real-time data feeds to proactively detect errors across the value chain, improve regulatory compliance, among other things. Our IoT Remote Monitoring Systems can help pharmaceutical companies:  

  • Predict and prevent asset failures 3-5 days before they happen
  • Improve first-time fix rates
  • Maximise operational efficiency
  • Reduce equipment downtime and impacts


Improve energy efficiency to reduce operating costs and meet sustainability goals

The pharmaceutical manufacturing sector needs to maintain critical environments for production in terms of temperature, humidity, room pressurisation, cleanliness, and containment. It is why the sector is spending more than USD1 billion on energy consumption every year and generating 55% more emissions than the automotive industry. This is where Observe for Energy Management can help by providing monitoring and targeting capabilities to:  

  • Identify savings opportunities
  • Lower costs
  • Reach energy consumption targets
  • Meet sustainability goals


Prioritise mission-critical machinery to deliver maximum ROI

Pharma companies are prioritising maintenance tasks based on criticality and impact on operations, emphasising the importance of preventive measures to reduce failure. Maintenance Connection, which can be deployed in a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) or on-premise model can help maintenance teams:

  • Transition from reactive to preventive asset maintenance
  • Extend asset life
  • Maximise the ROI  
  • Facilitate ongoing compliance
