Life Sciences

We empower life sciences organisations at every stage of the value chain by providing the insight needed to make rapid, informed decisions.

Rapidly rising costs


Growth as a result of global economic recovery, demographic drivers and technological development puts the life sciences sector in a strong position. But costs are rising fast, regulatory barriers are increasing and the patent cliff looms.


To survive, organisations need to re-appraise their business models, manage costs and pricing, drive innovation and connect with customers – and all while meeting regulatory compliance.

Trusted partnership for the long term

There’s an urgent need for deeper insight and understanding. With the average drug taking 10 years to reach the market, mergers and acquisitions increasing and more patents being filed, it’s vital to access evidence-based research. At The Smart Cube, we’re a trusted long term partner to life sciences teams, from procurement to strategy and marketing, adding value by driving better understanding for all stakeholders across the value chain.
