Outsource your distribution and compliance tasks to our trusted team. With our support, you can free up valuable time to focus on what really matters - developing and promoting your products.
We don't believe in re-inventing the wheel for each new product or market or giving up significant revenue for someone else to do so. View our ready to use standard documents for a smooth onboarding.
Our service starts before we even arrive at the doors of your manufacturer. Sign up for a standalone Distribute service, or combine it with Comply for a full end-to-end pharma service.
Whether you have existing customers or you want access to our network, we will get your products out there.
We have it under control
We hold the marketing authorisations for you and take on the related responsibilities. Comply is only available with Distribute.
Do you need more than the basic marketing authorisation holder responsibilities?
We are building a suite of technology products that enable us to provide services at scale. Whilst those workflows remain proprietary, we are giving our customers access to their data through clean reporting and dashboards to promote transparency and do away with email exchanges. Our Web App, which is currently in development, will enable this.
If Simple Pharma takes over distribution of your product in markets that you already sell in, we will issue communications to your existing customers letting them know about the transition from you to us. We can draft and distribute this communication for you, informing customers of when to start placing orders with us instead. We will also manage the onboarding of your customers in our quality manage system.
Please note that an additional charge may be incurred if we onboard a new customer at your request.
For customers of Comply, it may be more straightforward for Simple Pharma to hold the marketing authorisation on behalf of its partners as we take on many of the responsibilities of the marketing authorisation holder, including communications with local health authorities and associated filings. For customers of Distribute, holding the marketing authorisation would be an additional charge which can be discussed on a case-by-case basis. It may make sense in those cases to opt for both Distribute and Comply.
We know that onboarding a new service provider can be a pain, and may involve a lot of admin. We try to make the onboarding process as easy as possible so that we can integrate your product information into our data system and start taking care of your operations headaches. The onboarding process will typically involve: an initial information request to ensure that we are the right service providers for you, making sure that we have the capabilities you need and that we have expertise in the right markets; negotiation and signature of the term sheet and contract; a more detailed information request about your products; and, if you signing up for Comply, the project plan for the marketing authorisation transfer or registration process. We have provided some materials to help ease the onboarding, which you can find in our resources.
Simple Pharma has a team of dedicated compliance professionals who have over 30 years of combined experience in the pharma industry with expertise in licence and technology transfers. All of our systems and processes are compliant and secure, and you can view our licences here. We will always keep you in the loop when we correspond with health authorities and you will have full control of your data.
The Distribute and Comply services fees are activity based. This means that our partners know exactly how much they will be paying, and ensure that our interests remain aligned. You can use our calculator to generate an estimated quote for Simple Pharma to serve your products, and we can give you a more detailed rate card upon enquiry: our services and corresponding rate card depend on your requirements. We will help you through the onboarding process and find the best solution for your business.
Simple Pharma's services fall into two models: the Distribute model and the Comply model. The Distribute services include: supply chain planning, inbound transport, quality release, warehousing, order taking, and outbound transport to end-customers. The Comply services include marketing authorisation holding, pharmacovigilance, dossier management, variation filing, serialisation, and promotional material reviews to support your commercial team.
We have a large footprint across Europe and Australia, and we are expanding our global infrastructure. We expect Asia, North America and LATAM to come online soon.
For our Distribute partners, Simple Pharma provides monthly sales, inventory and cashflow reports down to the batch and delivery site level. We can also report on complaints and defects received from customers and in some markets are able to share detailed sell-out data for an additional fee. Once onboarded with our Web App, you will be able to track your deliveries with live updates.
At its heart, Simple Pharma is a technology services company that embraces disruptive innovation of rigid, sub-optimal, and overly complex processes that have developed in the pharma industry. In doing so, we free product owners of the endless hassle of operating products and allow them to focus on their core capabilities, returning to them the economic benefit of their product sales. We always work in the best interests of our partners.
