CALLS FOR BETTER TOOLS
Companies face increased decision-making complexities in projects, portfolios and organizations. Margin compression, increased competition and tougher regulations add to the challenges and lead to diminishing R&D returns.
Existing tools are mainly Excel-based, providing only static and fragmented analysis with minimal or even no ability to quickly run multiple possibilities with varying sensitivities.
This results in most decisions being made without the best available knowledge, costing individual companies not only time but potentially $10’s of millions, if not $100’s of millions in capital costs and revenue. For the overall industry, the costs can be counted in billions of dollars.

FROM USING A MODERN TOOL
Optimize Risk - Evaluate multiple scenarios in a short period of time
to inform management’s next set of choices to systematically manage
risk and drive closer to the company’s goals.
Optimize Time - Evaluate options instantly and understand how the project value is impacted by the time to market.
Optimize Cost - Managing costs for projects and portfolios on a real time basis
allows decision makers to achieve highest ROI.
Our mathematicians and developers has put a lot of effort into these algorithms to solve the puzzle of portfolio selection.
This video introduces the Captario concept of Baselines as the current locked version of a portfolio - and Initiatives as the area where you can evaluate different scenarios.
During spring and summer of 2020 the initiative Rapid Scenario Evaluation (RSE), was offered to pharma companies with a drug development project or portfolio that was impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Based on input (e.g. via Excel) from the customer, Captario created an end-to-end model and evaluated different mitigation scenarios. The analysis was returned in 1-3 days from the day of input arrival.
The diagrams below show some typical charts that was generated during the RSE.
