FastChain® Demand Led Supply
Transforming the traditional clinical supply chain into one powered by patient demand
FastChain® demand led supply from Catalent is a revolutionary approach to clinical supplies that enables the on-demand GMP secondary packaging, labeling and distribution of patient kits to clinical sites based on actual patient need rather than relying upon large static inventories. With FastChain™, clinical sites receive the patient kits they need in a matter of days instead of weeks.
FastChain® is powered by SupplyFlex™, a proprietary IT platform that meticulously orchestrates centralized inventory management and order aggregation at a global level. By uncoupling secondary packaging from the traditional supply model, timelines are shortened, waste is reduced, and the supply chain becomes more flexible and cost-efficient.
Efficiencies possible with FastChain® include:
- Shorter timeframe for clinical sites to receive patient kits
- Reduced clinical waste (less than 20%)
- Drug pooling across protocols
- Elimination of booklet labels
- Ability to add/remove countries easily
