Are you placing your product in several countries or via centralized procedure in EU and realizing you may have to hire many new people to cover the role of national contact person for pharmacovigilance?
Does that sound like a lot of time effort and a massive cost to manage? Typically, it really has been.
Well… before Tepsivo joined the field.
Managing projects across all time-zones, involving 30+ countries with 60+ people is our bread and butter. Local PV operations is what we started to modernize and automate at first.
Running global operations of local contact persons has traditionally been a massive part of overall PV budgets with inexplicable inefficiencies all around.
We decided to change that.
