TGaS Honors Vendors Voted Most Innovative by Biopharma

East Norriton, Penn., December 14, 2017. TGaS Advisors named four recipients of the first TGaS Award for the Most Innovative Vendors in Biopharma. Winners are Veeva for Field Operations, ZS Associates for Commercial Analytics & Insights, Red Nucleus for Learning & Development and Aptus Health for Multichannel Marketing. The four were chosen from more than 100 nominations submitted by clients of TGaS and the Emerging Life Sciences Network.  The benchmarking and advisory services firm’s Vendor Insights solution fielded the competition in order to identify and recognize the value these suppliers add to life sciences companies.

“Being innovative matters in every area of life sciences,” said Steve Gerard, CEO and Executive Chairman of TGaS. “Our clients tell us that truly innovative vendors perform above benchmark in all areas of measurement.” According to Gerard, vendors scoring high with respect to expertise and responsiveness were more likely to be considered innovative. Technology innovations tended to be the most frequent, followed by novel methods and industry knowledge and expertise.

Gerard also noted the importance of innovative vendors in today’s environment. TGaS data shows that eight out of every 10 dollars pharma spends to support commercialization is with vendors, an increase of 14% over 10 years.

TGaS Vendor Insights, the firm’s online vendor management solution, has seen a dramatic rise in participation since it launched. The solution recently reached a 5,000-rating milestone for hundreds of the most commonly used vendors in biopharma. Vendor Insights provides life sciences companies with a comprehensive set of peer ratings for vendors across virtually all business functions with vendor profiles, commentary and other information. The solution also enables access to a deep repository of searchable vendor profiles, including product offerings in each functional area, reach, areas of specialization and utilization information. Users also have access to peers who have used vendors under consideration.
