Many companies perceive product life cycle management (PLM) solutions as the 'elder wand' that can streamline and expedite product development with a single wave. There is also general credence that PLM predominantly pertains to technology and not business processes. Nothing could be further from the truth. In reality, PLM is a complex harmonization of several processes, workflows, and related solutions. As such, to devise a comprehensive PLM strategy, companies need a trusted advisor who is well-versed on technology, business, and operational fronts.

Enter NexInfo!

"Our PLM solutions blend business processes and technology to deliver maximum value for clients," says Arun Cavale, CEO of NexInfo.

Drawing insights from two decades of experience, NexInfo's core competencies pertain to helping clients take a holistic PLM stance. Going beyond/augmenting PLM, the company's expertise revolves around Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Enterprise Performance Management (EPM), Customer Experience (CX), Supply Chain Management (SCM), Quality Management Systems (QMS), and Data Analytics. "We have many experts well-versed in several technology platforms like Oracle, SAP, and Microsoft services," says Arun Sharma, Director of Analytics & Information Management at NexInfo. NexInfo predominantly caters to pharma, biotech, and high-end tech manufacturing clients. They are laser-focused on improving business processes and removing redundancies and system latencies enabling clients to unlock streamlined PLM effortlessly. In addition, NexInfo also helps clients integrate different technological and business processes post mergers and acquisitions.

When engaging with clients, NexInfo takes on a situational approach and thoroughly analyzes clients' unique requirements. They have a proprietary methodology centered on educating customers about the tools and industry best practices.

The company discerns itself by offering tailored software and business solutions to fit client requirements. "We are highly client-centric, and we offer direct access to leadership when unusual situations arise in the supply chain or any other process," says Rahul Phatak, Senior Technology Leader at NexInfo.

Holding a deep understanding and extensive knowledge in life sciences and high-end manufacturing, they help clients adhere to regulatory requirements pertaining to their respective industries. The company is even adept at deploying overarching governance processes for, say, sales, operations, or integrated business planning processes.
Among many, a success story that exemplifies NexInfo's value proposition is Gilead Sciences Inc., a biotechnology company. Gilead partnered with NexInfo to streamline its product management, product data compliance and the integration to their supply chain processes. NexInfo transformed Gilead’s Artwork and Labeling process reducing cycle time from an average of 60 days to an average of less than 30 days. NexInfo further helped transform the product management and product compliance processes with FDA’s CFR 21 Part 11, by eliminating over 40 paper based processes and digitizing them completely including electronic signatures and electronic collaboration with external suppliers. By bringing all of those processes under a single software platform fully integrated with an ecosystem of 8 other software applications enabled Gilead to scale its efficiency and it’s data accuracy and cycle times.

Similarly, NexInfo resolved a PLM issue for a high-end tech manufacturer that had acquired a smaller company that produces the same product. Even a year post-acquisition, they were still dependent on different PLM systems for manufacturing the same product. The duality served as a catalyst for human error. NexInfo intervened with both the teams, understood problems, and integrated all their disjointed processes under one umbrella bringing a great deal of process clarity and transparency. The solution now serves as a single source of growth within the client's organization and is also configured to new standards (ISO). The company also enabled the client to better manage their resources and improve the internal documentation process.

NexInfo provides PLM solutions across a spectrum of industries from highly regulated industries like Pharmaceutical & Aerospace to quick growth startups and Small and Medium Businesses (SMB). The capability to deploy multiple PLM applications like Oracle Agile, SAP PLM, Ennovia, Teamcenter, Winchill, Propel PLM, Arena PLM, stands out as a differentiating factor in why clients prefer to engage with NexInfo.
