AMAG Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a 25-year-old biopharmaceutical firm that has developed intravenous drugs to treat anemia. The company employed 60 scientists, sales staff, and other employees until it began a rapid and significant expansion in early 2008, growing quickly to 280 people. This rapid expansion created information-delivery challenges for the marketing, sales training and clinical organizations when they had to send and transfer large files via email. The file attachments were becoming too heavy to be accepted by the recipients’ e-mail systems, plus the company needed a secure way to send training and sensitive drug data out to the employees in the field, as well a safe, secure, HIPAA-compliant way to send its study results and patient information.
This case study illustrates how AMAG drastically cut completion time of critical projects by eliminating e-mail transfer of large files, ultimately improving security, increasing cost-savings and accelerating time to market.
