TGaS Advisors Teams with UK’s Mirador Analytics to Bring a New Level of Forecasting to today’s Complex Biopharmaceutical Environment

E. Norriton, Penn. and Melrose, UK. 9.14.17. Credible forecasts create hundreds of millions of dollars of additional value for biopharma companies and investors, according to research by TGaS Advisors, a benchmarking and advisory services firm for life sciences commercial operations. Understanding asset evaluation is considered a critical element of the drug commercialization process and a fundamental component underpinning global commercial strategy development. To enable life sciences companies to maximize both their asset development and strategic launch plans, TGaS has formed a partnership with Mirador Analytics, Ltd., a UK company with advanced global forecasting capabilities. The partnership makes  asset forecasting and benchmarking available as a holistic service offering to global biopharmaceutical organizations.

Mirador Analytics has developed an advanced forecasting tool that goes well beyond the spreadsheet analysis common to the industry, according to Tim Wohlgemut, Senior Vice President, TGaS Insights. “The increasing complexity of drug development today, particularly in specialty, oncology and immunotherapy, makes it far more difficult to predict uptake and pricing on a global scale.” All aspects of drug development are under greater scrutiny, requiring a new level of credibility in forecasting, said Wohlgemut. “TGaS’ and Mirador Analytics’ combined processes and tools have ‘baked in’ many of the best practices that our research shows are vital for creating significant value through credible forecasting.”

The UK company has deep expertise in global forecasting across the life sciences, with special capabilities in the complex areas of oncology, rare diseases and immunotherapy. The firm features fully integrated services and structure across all relevant functional disciplines, including analytics, programming, strategic planning, insight, pricing, marketing, business development and Medical Affairs.

Speaking of the agreement, Jamie Blackport, Mirador Co-Founder and CEO, said, “The TGaS and Mirador Analytics partnership represents both organizations’ passion to support biopharma firms’ efforts in drug development and launch, an inherently complex and uncertain process.”
