For immediate release.
Comintelli, the leading provider of competitive intelligence software, today announced that Theratechnologies (TSX: TH), a Canadian biopharmaceutical company, has selected and implemented Comintelli Knowledge XChanger (KXC) to power their competitive intelligence system. Being a late-stage bio-tech company, the need for strategic intelligence is fundamental for Theratechnologies and they now have a tool that helps them identify growth opportunities and gives early warning of competitive threats.
The implementation of Comintelli KXC was easy and fast for the IT team at Theratechnologies. They were particularly pleased with the integration with Microsoft Active Directory, which offers users single sign on access to the CI system, relieving them of having to log in separately to Comintelli KXC.
”Theratechnologies has a clear vision of what they want to accomplish with their strategic intelligence work,” said Jesper Martell, CEO of Comintelli. “In combination with our experience from the biotech industry, I believe this helped us speed up the implementation process considerably.”
“Following a thorough analysis of our needs and all CI systems available, we have chosen Comintelli for the versatility of KXC and its capacity to grow with our organization, the flexibility of the IT group to adapt it to our high security standards and the quality of their customer service,” said Lydia Haulbert, Director of Market Research & Strategic Intelligence at Theratechnologies.
Comintelli will demonstrate its CI solutions at the 6 th annual Pharma and Biotech Competitive Intelligence summit which will take place in Princeton , New Jersey on 18-19 September. For more information about this event, please see http://www.srinstitute.com.
