The world's most dynamic
Clinical Demand and Supply
Planning (D&SP) tool

The next generation of D&SP has arrived.
Introducing 4C, applying the power of foresight to your supply chain strategy.

From early-stage feasibility planning through study completion, informing supply chain decisions has never been easier. 4C uses Natural Language Processing (NLP) to turn study parameters from plain English into detailed forecasts, giving you full transparency and complete control of supply decisions.

4C brings simplicity and speed without the error prone processes of Excel or the need for external SMEs required by existing commercial tools.

4C D&SP Differentiators

Speed

Model, forecast and verify D&SP in minutes

Build and verify inputs, run the forecast, and verify the demand and supply plan (D&SP) in less than one business day. Dynamically adapt to new information, re-forecast and assess the impact on the D&SP, in moments.

Simplicity

Leverage Natural Language Processing (NLP) to turn plain English into dynamic supply models

NLP uses plain English, eliminating the risk from human error from Excel and the lack of understanding from complicated commercial planning tools.

Control Over Supply Decisions

Assess real-time impacts of supply decisions

Easily compare scenarios and assess impacts in real-time. Verify outcomes based on inputs into the system and leverage powerful visualizations to answer questions and inform key business decisions for clinical operations and manufacturing teams.

4C-forecasting-based-on-available-information

Forecast Based on Available Information

Inform supply decisions throughout the study lifecycle

Enable supply decisions from early-stage feasibility planning, 1-3 years ahead of study start, all way through to study completion.

Accuracy & Visibility

Enable real-time actuals and visibility across the entire supply chain

Frequent uploads of study actuals enable the CSP to adjust supply plans with up-to-date information, increasing the plan accuracy and providing visibility to the entire supply chain. Actuals are easily compared to input assumptions and notify CSPs of significant deviations to investigate and adjust inputs when needed.
