Business Challenges

Alaric faced significant challenges in managing a dynamic and diverse pharmaceutical inventory.

Key issues included:

  • Managing a vast range of drug SKUs, particularly very fast-moving drugs, which required constant monitoring and rapid response to avoid stockouts.
  • Balancing the inventory of slow-moving drugs, which posed risks of overstocking and expiration.
  • Adhering to stringent regulatory standards and compliance requirements in the pharmaceutical industry.

These challenges were compounded by the critical nature of pharmaceuticals, where delays or inaccuracies could have profound implications for patient care and safety.

How INSIA was Implemented

The implementation of INSIA for our client involved a comprehensive integration of data, encompassing pending orders, stock, sales, and inventory, to construct a complete view of the supply chain movements of medicinal drugs.

The primary data source for this undertaking was Sage ERP, to which we established connections via APIs, ensuring seamless data flow and integration.

An important part of this project was developing an automated system to categorize SKUs into four groups: Very Fast Moving, Fast Moving, Slow Moving, and Very Slow Moving. This classification was meticulously done based on the invoiced quantity and the number of orders. Additionally, we undertook the task of valuing SKUs in terms of their importance to the organization. This strategic approach enabled the client to prioritize and manage over50,000 SKUs, focusing on those most critical to their operations.

Another critical element of our solution was the creation of systems to capture and store daily Inventory Snapshot data. This capability allowed for historical analysis of various inventory KPI movements, providing deeper insights into inventory trends and patterns.

Through INSIA, we established crucial KPIs such as Net Stock, Safety Days, Inventory Stock Days, Excess Stock Value, Ideal Stock Value, and Reorder Quantity. These KPIs gave the client a comprehensive understanding of their inventory dynamics, facilitating better inventory management, forecasting, and strategic decision-making. The implementation of INSIA thus streamlined the client's supply chain processes. It equipped them with powerful tools for data-driven decision-making in managing their vast array of medicinal drug SKUs.
