Inventory Performance

Operational efficiency has long been challenged by manual processes, siloed systems, poor visibility, and unexpected change. Safety stock and excess capacity act as buffers against volatility but often leads to waste due to expired products, thereby reducing overall profitability.

Today’s supply chains demand richer, real-time data to streamline smarter responses to the actual condition and status of inventory, whether in-house or in your extended network. The ParkourSC supply chain solution monitors product-level location and condition to provide continuous insight into inventory.

ParkourSC Prevents Waste to Improve OTIF Performance

Our survey of 200 pharma manufacturers and distributors revealed that more than a quarter of pharmaceutical firms had experienced damaged, spoiled or lost inventory. Roughly 90% reported said they didn’t have full visibility across the enterprise wide supply chains and didn’t trust the in-transit data they were receiving.

Annual Savings

A $30B global biopharma firm turned to ParkourSC to capture inventory as it moves through critical stages—in-house and across handoffs originating at donor centers. The material can now be monitored for time out of refrigeration at every step, reducing spoilage, streamlining compliance, and improving inventory turns. They also eliminated manual error-prone processes and are more effectively addressing regulatory requirements. Estimate $8M in savings annually from reduced retesting, spoilage, and administration.
