Work smarter and faster
with low-code

The pharmaceutical sector faces significant IT challenges. Companies need to operate as efficiently as possible while keeping up with regulations and technological advancements. Off-the-shelf software solutions often lack the required flexibility. The solution? Low-code.


Increased agility

Low-code enhances your digital agility. It enables you to quickly develop flexible applications that automate your processes and promptly adapt to changing market conditions.


Integration and modernization

Low-code allows you to continuously modernize legacy applications. You can also initially use an application alongside your existing systems, with easy and fast integration.


Maintenance and security

A low-code application consists of ready-made components, reducing the risk of bugs and simplifying maintenance. Furthermore, low-code platforms are inherently well-secured.

Efficiency gains for shorter time-to-market

The competition in the pharmaceutical industry is intense. Companies strive to bring new vaccines, drugs, and medical products to the market as quickly as possible. This calls for efficient internal processes and smart utilization of data and technology. For instance, workflow applications can streamline and automate the approval of scientific publications.


Stringent requirements for quality and safety

The pharmaceutical industry operates within strict regulations that oversee the development, production, distribution, and sale of medications. Compliance with data protection regulations, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is also of utmost importance. Meeting these regulatory requirements can be complex and is often closely intertwined with IT.


Rise of technologies like AI and IoT

The pharmaceutical sector is embracing the potential of technologies such as artificial intelligence, big data, and the Internet of Things (IoT). AI techniques can lower the costs of drug research, while IoT applications are utilized for preventive maintenance of production machines and quality control. Building these innovative applications necessitates an agile IT environment.

Optimize your laboratory processes
with LIMS software

Laboratories must proceed with utmost care when testing drugs and vaccines. It is crucial to thoroughly verify test results and accurately record each step in compliance with regulations. A laboratory information management system (LIMS) ensures efficient management of these processes. We can quickly build a LIMS system that seamlessly aligns with your laboratory operations.


Reinvent your business
with IoT applications

The Internet of Things (IoT) enables product innovations and new business models. However, an IoT application can also be used to optimize your business processes. For instance, you can utilize sensors to detect machine failures early and monitor the temperature of medications during transportation. With low-code, we give your IoT project a head start.

What’s the best software for my pharmaceutical company?
There is no simple answer to this question. When choosing software, it is important to consider factors such as functional requirements and available resources. The main decision often comes down to selecting between off-the-shelf software or custom development. Numerous vendors offer standard software packages tailored for the pharmaceutical industry. Alternatively, you have the option to develop your own application.
What are the pros and cons of off-the-shelf software?

Off-the-shelf software offers a fast implementation and cost-effective solution. However, every pharmaceutical company has unique processes that may not align well with standard software solutions. Even if software providers claim their solution is tailored for the pharmaceutical industry, it often includes unnecessary features or lacks essential functionalities. Customization options for the software are also limited.

Many pharmaceutical companies try to adjust their processes to fit within the constraints of off-the-shelf packages. At House of low-code, we prioritize the needs of the business over the technology itself, ensuring that your software solution is truly tailored to your specific requirements.

What are the pros and cons of custom development?

The primary advantage of custom software is its perfect alignment with your business processes. You are not reliant on a software vendor who determines which functionalities are essential for you. Instead, you have full control over the software's features and design.

However, there are also disadvantages associated with custom development, especially in traditional software development. It involves manually writing code using programming languages, which can be complex and inflexible. This often requires a significant time investment in detailed specifications and planning, while the pharmaceutical sector is highly dynamic. Sometimes, software becomes outdated shortly after development. Additionally, attracting experienced programmers can be challenging, leading to higher costs.

Fortunately, custom development doesn't have to be difficult. At House of low-code, we specialize in rapidly creating user-friendly custom software that truly propels your pharmaceutical company forward. We achieve this using a future-proof technology: low-code.

What is low-code development?
Low-code is a development approach that enables you to create applications using visual building blocks and models. It provides a user-friendly graphical interface that hides the complexities of programming code. By leveraging low-code, you can rapidly build customized logistics software, seamlessly integrate new features, and often achieve cost savings compared to traditional software development.
What are the benefits of low-code?

Rapid development
Low-code accelerates the development of custom software, reducing project completion time from months to weeks.

Lower costs
Low-code development is cost-effective. It saves time and requires less expensive programming knowledge.

Increased agility
Low-code enables you to quickly adapt to new laws and regulations and explore technologies like AI.

Low-code allows non-programmers like researchers to participate in the development process, resulting in better software.

Easy integration
The power of low-code lies in its ability to easily integrate a new application with your existing systems.

Legacy modernization
Outdated software hampers innovation and efficiency. With low-code, you can continuously modernize applications.
