How Megalabs Standardized Pharmaceutical Logistics QA with Logmore
Founded in 2002, Megalabs has grown into a pharmaceutical leader especially in the Latin American market. 18 countries, 17 production facilities, and 7 R&D centers later, Megalabs is now a regional company seeking to establish strong and reliable links and redefine the limits of what is possible.
They are passionate about both patients’ and health professionals’ needs, as well as global industry trends to become better every day. Megalabs is committed to investing in technology and innovation with the aim of creating safe and effective therapeutic solutions in a demanding market. This allows the company to keep up with changes in the regulatory frameworks of all countries where they operate.
In 2021, the Megalabs team was looking to streamline their quality processes. As a part of the project, they wanted to unify logger usage from each regional unit choosing their own solution to as few different variations as possible. An important factor would be that the HQ needed to have more control and better visibility to what actually happens to products.
“We were looking for a new solution that represented an optimization in costs and time, and the Logmore devices managed to meet all expectations.”, says Carolina Pereira, Purchasing Manager
The old process had too many steps and took too long. With this in mind, the implementation team had a clear comparison point to beat. The consensus on Logmore quickly became positive once the Megalabs team started testing and saw that the new process would be faster and even less prone to errors.
The centralization of all data under the Logmore Cloud platform was also received as a significant advantage over other solutions. The operations team particularly appreciated greater visibility and analytics features, which now allowed a better control over the stock of the devices while also requiring less effort.
By switching to Logmore data loggers, Megalabs has saved 6 minutes per shipment. This translates to a 92% drop in the time it takes to configure the monitoring device for the shipment.
“We are happy with the results since the solution is aligned with the corporation's strategy, which is the standardization of processes, visibility, and control of information at a global level.”, says International Trade Manager - Carolina Abreu
“For the quality assurance purposes, the Logmore solution has been very welcome. It allows us to implement in an easier way to standardize processes throughout the organization. Using Logmore is very intuitive and easy, so there is no risk of data loss.”, says Quality Assurance Manager Claudia Acosta.
