Do you know what situation your peers’ businesses are in, and what they’re working to? To find out just that, IQPC polled their network of pharmaceutical serialization professionals and got responses from representatives of over 20 companies.
The results? Most find data storage and management to be their biggest issue, citing ERP systems as some of their biggest investments in 2016 and going forward.
