We have the programs, processes, and systems to get your projects started and launched on time—so you can focus on exploring innovations that improve health and save lives.
Our established systems are the foundation for managing successful programs for our customers. We’ve used these mature systems across many customer programs to ensure successful transfers and new product introductions (NPIs). Beyond launch, we can help you streamline your supply chain, improve quality, and implement the principles of Lean.
We have a proven process to get your product launched on time and on budget. Our program managers leverage our ViaLaunch™ New Product Introduction & Transfer Process – a systematic, proactive approach to developing and executing a clear plan to take your program from concept – or any phase – to launch. From the ViaLaunch kickoff through regular meetings, we collaborate to leverage our collective experience to proactively identify risk, address real-world issues that could cause delays and track concrete actions. It’s all about speed to market and program success.
Our dedicated medical device engineering team focuses on manufacturing transfers, applying their expertise to minimize risk. Whether the transfer originates from your facility, a supplier’s facility, or a Viant product development area, we follow a disciplined process to ensure smooth and efficient transitions. We’ve successfully completed many manufacturing transfers to Viant facilities—on time and on budget.
