BCD Travel has launched a Life Sciences Center of Excellence, which strengthens BCDâs ability to provide integrated offerings specific to the life sciences sector.
The group alreadyhas expertise in the sector, and BCD Meetings & Events has an existing Life Sciences Center of Excellence.
The new Center of Excellence will offer strategic consultation and guidance on best practices, and enable it to maximise the healthcare provider, patient and traveller experience while balancing complex compliance and regulatory requirements. The idea is also to provide holistic solutions across travel, meetings, HCP/patient engagements and consultancy.
BCD currently services 90 per cent of the top 20 pharmaceutical companies, and has more than 20 years of experience and deep institutional knowledge across more than 100 customers and 40+ therapeutic areas.
While traditional corporate travel has slowed drastically during the pandemic, the life sciences industry has faced challenges, including the need to expand traditional support to include frontline workers.
BCD Travel shared in a statement that life sciences companies have also been turning to them for support in addressing the sensitive needs of clinical trial patients and that the company expects soon to announce an improved approach to delivering a patient travel experience with the benefits of a corporate travel programme.
