Although disruptions in the global supply chain continue, these issues can be minimized by working with a supply chain partner who can leverage a large network for proven workflows and favorable material substitutions. Our large-scale execution enables:

  • Regulatory compliance for country-specific laws and language considerations for all kit components
  • Complex variations in products and packaging for specialized applications, geographies, and requirements, e.g., governments, retail pharmacies, or end-users
  • Centralized vendor management for kit components while maintaining quality, continuity of supply and cost control
  • Avoidance of expensive and inflexible finished goods inventories, low-density shipment charges, and storage costs
  • Scalability for kitting and distribution as new products become available for launch
  • Innovative and cost-effective packaging that drives a positive customer experience, competitive differentiation, and effective protection for kit components
  • End-to-end visibility into product configurations, quality control, and branding
