SMBs and Validation in the Life Sciences
Monday May 7, 2018
What is Considered a Small to Medium Sized Business?
The Small Business Administration classifies companies based on the type of industry, structure of ownership, revenue and number of employees. Small businesses in the Life Sciences typically have around 1,000 employees or less whereas medium sized companies can range in revenue from $10 million to $1 billion.
What are the Benefits of Systems Tailored for Small to Medium Sized Businesses?
Because small and medium sized businesses, or SMBs, are different in their size, revenue and structure compared to larger companies, the systems they use are also distinct to meet their exclusive needs. Software companies understand companies with different structures need solutions that are tailored to meet their exceptional needs, whether it’s Customer Relationship Software (CRM), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Project Management Software (PMS), etc.
