Pharma Services Network Launches New Professional Life Science Consultants Directory, LifeScienceConsultants.com

Structured as an Online Portal, the Directory Pairs Qualified Consultants With Companies Needing Expert Support

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwired - Sep 3, 2014) - Pharma Services Network (PSN) today announced the launch of its new service directory portal, LifeScienceConsultants.com, a marketplace pairing qualified life science consultants with companies needing their specific expertise. This premiere online service will deliver a comprehensive directory, providing the industry with a much-needed resource.

"The question we are most frequently asked by life science companies is how to find the right expert consultants," said Jim Worrell, CEO of PSN. "Finding and engaging the best consultant is time-consuming, expensive, demanding and often fruitless. LifeScienceConsultants.com makes it fast and easy for companies to connect to and engage with the right consultant."

From discovery to manufacturing, life science companies are relying more and more on outsourced expertise for short and medium-term projects. LifeScienceConsultants.com is designed to connect pharmaceutical, medical device and biotechnology companies with the right contract consultant or team of consultants. Likewise, consultants registered on the site are able to seek out new companies and projects in which to offer their services. This ensures they get the proper exposure needed as a contract consultant, which has never been possible before.

The portal is free to all companies seeking expert consultants. They can search for consultants who meet their individual project needs and criteria, enabling them to save money, time, and the challenges associated with staffing concerns. In addition, companies can provide detailed information to short-list candidates with materials such as project details, including therapeutic expertise, phase specifics, in-depth research, timelines, team participant requirements and budget.

Consultants wanting to register on the site will pay a small, monthly fee to list their complete profile, which includes everything an organization needs to qualify and engage with them. Minimal profile elements should include CV, historical projects, professional video library, social media links and contact information.

PSN foresees continuously adding deeper functionality to the portal for both companies and expert consultants as feedback about the site is gathered and assessed. Eventually, LifeScienceConsultants.com will also provide deeper industry information, insights, perspectives, case studies, best practices and trends relative to both companies and consultants. The objective is to ensure that both parties have access to an ever-evolving, valuable industry resource.

"All consulting companies, from one-man shops to larger companies, have the same problem: when they are working, they are not doing business development; when they're doing business development, they're not working," said Chuck Bon, an independent consultant providing statistics for ANDA applications. "LifeScienceConsultants.com will help solve that problem."

Worrell sees this new industry portal as an extension of PSN and the work they do to connect life science companies with fully qualified, strategic partners across the globe. "Outsourcing in this industry has become an essential tool. Pharma Services Network has developed LifeScienceConsultants.com to take the guesswork out of finding the right consultant. The new portal streamlines the process for all involved and provides bottom-line savings."
