Delivering Next Level transformation in Life Sciences

Fragmented IT systems and a complex regulatory landscape across global business units left one of the world’s largest leading pharmaceutical companies struggling to achieve target synergies for an upcoming merger.

Roboyo partnered with this global life science company, creating a de-centralized Center of Excellence (CoE) to accelerate business model innovation and operational transformation.

01

CHALLENGE

In order to achieve target synergies for the merger, our client needed to accelerate operational and business model transformation.  

Vastly different business models and regulatory landscapes across Business Units led to significant differences in requirements on systems and operations.  

These challenges were exacerbated by IT landscapes and complex integrations at varying stages of maturity across the globe.

SOLUTION

To support immediate improvements in business operations and take into account differences across business units and regions, Roboyo established a decentralized Automation CoE operating in a network organization embedded into the existing reporting structures.  

The Automation CoE covers multiple dimensions:  

  • (Regional) Automation Integration  
  • Automation Life Cycle Excellence 
  • Automation Governance 
  • Portfolio Management and Target Setting 
  • Regional, technical and functional Community Management 
  • Technology Management 
03

OUTCOME

Our solution started with RPA while enabling our client to transition quickly to more advanced technologies such as IDP, Process Intelligence and Low Code App Development. 

This approach transforms how people across the organization interact with technology to create smarter ways of working. Their employees are freed from over 20 thousand hours of repetitive robotic work each year. 

Operational enhancements and cost savings (over €1million in the first year) are allowing them to realize acquisition synergies. 

Roboyo has demonstrated they are a problem-solving partner and have been very flexible adapting to our needs. They achieved a huge amount in a short time, and we are really pleased with the business performance improvements they’ve helped us achieve. All I can say is thanks.
