Earth Day: How to Embrace Sustainability in an Evolving Pharma World

The technological revolution has reshaped industry landscapes, placing Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) companies at the forefront of modern businesses. The rise impacts not only economic but also environmental aspects, as industries today across various sectors are increasingly scrutinised for their carbon footprint. On Earth Day, this year, let’s witness how SaaS businesses are making a change in promoting eco-friendly, sustainable operations across industries.

Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) businesses are cloud-based distribution models where applications are accessed via the internet, rather than being installed on individual computers. In contrast to traditional software delivery, SaaS offers several sustainability benefits:

1. Energy Efficiency

SaaS business applications, hosted in centralised data centers, can leverage more efficient hardware and shared resources, reducing the overall energy consumption compared to traditional businesses.

2. Carbon Footprint

The shared nature of SaaS businesses reduces the carbon footprint by pooling resources for multiple users, leading to more efficient operations and less environmental impact per user.

3. Infrastructure Reduction

SaaS businesses eliminate the need for on-site businesses to maintain extensive hardware infrastructure for software operation, thus saving on resources and reducing e-waste from outdated equipment. This streamlines the installation and configuration process, freeing up time that can be better spent on enhancing software deployment.

OneSC: Leading the Charge in Sustainable Pharma Supply Chains

As the globe gears up to celebrate Earth Day, we’re reminded of the crucial role every industry plays in building a sustainable future. In the pharmaceutical supply chain sector, OneSC is reshaping the sustainability approach through innovative features and solutions.

OneSC is a SAAS platform for pharmaceutical companies to optimise their operations, enhance decision-making processes and meet regulatory compliance standards throughout the supply chain. OneSC leverages Internet-of-Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) combined with design thinking to create unique and innovative solutions.

It has blossomed into a comprehensive platform, changing the game by delivering unmatched insight into pharmaceutical batch processes. Scalability and seamless integration are hallmarks of the OneSC platform, ensuring that complex batch management can be achieved without the substantial physical infrastructure that once might have been necessary.

Recent enhancements has increased OneSC’s capability to refine supply chain management. Key features such as enhanced end-to-end visibility, improved Key Performance Indicator (KPI) reporting and advanced task management empower users with smarter data-driven decision making. This strategic use of resources is a crucial step towards diminishing wastage and conserving energy.

OneSC’s commitment to sustainability is underscored by its initiative to centralise batch documentation, significantly reducing reliance on paper and contributing to deforestation reduction efforts. Additionally, this centralisation facilitates a more energy-efficient approach to data storage and management, leading to a substantial cut in email traffic for supply chain partners.

From a fiscal and environmental perspective, the integration of OneSC into a UK-based pharmaceutical firm supply chain operations has proven to be highly advantageous. With potential annual savings reaching upwards of £400,000, OneSC has demonstrated its capacity to enhance efficiency. A marked increase in shipping utilisation by 20% indicates a more effective use of each transport, which means fewer trips and a reduction in related environmental impacts.

The shift toward digital transformation for better eco-friendly, sustainable operations with OneSC extends beyond business processes. Our clients have witnessed a remarkable 50% reduction in paper consumption, as sales and marketing teams embrace iPad technology. This initiative, alongside refined warehouse management practices, exhibits our dedication to reducing resource use and endorsing eco-conscious, sustainable operations.

OneSC is pioneering initiatives that signify considerable strides in sustainability. Our futuristic AI-powered features are in development – a sophisticated digital twin engineered to revolutionise supply chain oversight. Offering dynamic, real-time insights, we can equip operational teams with the ability to make informed decisions swiftly, thereby curtailing delays and minimising product waste.

OneSC is also developing a carbon emissions reporting tool built into the platform. This will enhance transparency across pharmaceutical production and distribution channels. Together, these features are not just progressive steps but giant leaps towards embedding sustainability at the core of the pharmaceutical supply chain industry.

OneSC’s commitment is evident in their reduced reliance on physical infrastructure, significantly lowering the ecological cost of technological progress and standing testament to the fact that their efforts mirror a larger commitment to environmental responsibility and serve as a blueprint for sustainability in the pharmaceutical supply chain industry.
