AstraZeneca is implementing N-Side’s recently launched Suite for Clinical Trials to provide ‘a single source of truth’ for safely supplying trials, as more stakeholders are generating more data.

AstraZeneca will use the N-Side Supply and Dashboard Apps to design, plan, and monitor its clinical trial supply chain, according to N-Side, which has been providing consulting services for AstraZeneca since 2017.

N-Side’s Life Sciences Director, Sébastien Coppe, described the suite as an “innovative digital platform that empowers decision makers to optimize their clinical supplies decisions and efficiently communicate with other stakeholders.”

The N-Side suite enables customers to see ‘where and when’ a drug supply shortage could potentially occur – providing actions to mitigate the risks and an average 30% budget reduction compared to existing solutions, according to the company.

“Shorter shelf life of drugs, more expensive comparator drugs used in the clinical trials, and limited biotech drug production capacity make it more important than ever to have a reliable clinical supply plan that reduces drug waste while managing the risk to patient service levels,”​ Sylvia Haller, life sciences marketing manager at N-Side, told us.

The global software consulting company launched​ the end-to-end clinical trial supply chain management solution in March of this year.

According to the Belgium-based company, the N-Side Suite for Clinical Trials uses data analytics and machine learning (ML) algorithms to support decision making and builds on the company’s existing CT-Fast solution for supply forecasting.

“As more and more data is generated and managed by different stakeholders in clinical trials, it is more important than ever to have a single source of truth for safely supplying the trial,” ​Haller added, “which allows efficient communication channels between clinical and supply departments.”
