Going public in December 2020 was a big step for early-stage biopharmaceutical company Clene, Inc. in its work to revolutionize the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases and protect neuronal health and function. But it was just one of several steps that highlighted the need for the company to upgrade to a robust enterprise resource planning solution.
As RSM was brought in to assist Clene, clinical trials were already in progress for the company’s platform, which enables the creation of nanocrystals for therapeutic use in areas of high unmet medical needs—such as neurodegenerative diseases and other areas like antiviral, antibacterial, wound healing, burn treatment and oncology. That ongoing progression from early to clinical stage had entailed increasing internal complexities.
Moreover, the company decided it wanted to manufacture its own products rather than outsource that function as many other pharmaceutical companies do.
