Published: Feb 09, 2012
HYDERABAD, India and NEW ORLEANS, Feb. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Neuland Laboratories Ltd., a pharmaceutical manufacturer providing active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), complex intermediates and contract research and manufacturing services to customers located in 85 countries, today announced it will launch a mobile app version of its GuarD project management system at the Informex USA 2012 conference.
Saharsh R. Davuluri, President of Contract Research at Neuland, will officially launch the GuarD project management app at an Informex 2012 press briefing at 11:00 am CT on February 15, 2012 in Room 240 at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.
Mr. Davuluri notes, "Our GuarD system is a powerful collaborative tool that has helped increase Neuland's record of on-time production by identifying critical subtasks and enabling team leaders and customers to monitor and track progress at every stage in real-time. We are now pleased to launch our new mobile phone app that allows our customers and team members to access the capabilities of the GuarD system at anytime and anywhere."
GuarD was developed by Neuland Labs to support the company's goal of making its manufacturing process completely transparent and an extension of its customers' resources, while providing them the opportunity to participate fully in project planning and real-time tracking. GuarD uses the principles of Critical Chain Project Management, which emphasizes resource availability and flexibility to maintain project timelines, rather than requiring rigid scheduling.
In concert with the customer, the Neuland project team creates a detailed project plan that is viewable in an online template. GuarD allows the team to keep customers completely up to date on the progress of their projects, providing critical information on the latest task updates, expected time of task completion and potential challenges. A key advantage of the GuarD system is that its detail and interactive nature make it easy to identify and manage delays at any step in the process. Customers are invited to contribute to solutions based on their experience and priorities.
Working closely with customers has been an important commitment of Neuland's from the beginning. Yet as Mr. Davuluri notes, "Implementing GuarD represented a major step forward in our ability to bring our customers into the project management process as full participants. We are now proud to introduce our next advance in customer participation by using 21st century communications technology to provide around-the-clock access to the GuarD system."
