Sample order fulfilment

Alloga UK created the Alloga Sample App (SA) with an aim of providing reps with a simplified method of taking orders, ensuring that the right data is quickly captured from the healthcare professional (HCP). The app supports sample traceability, including cost controls and volume limits per reps and site, also increasing the speed of order fulfilment.

Within this app, clients can track existing orders and also create new ones. Each rep is prompted about their remaining quota allowance when creating a new order so they can track their sample spend. Reps can only order samples to recognised institutions, by either searching institution name or ID, post code or location address.

The rep then adds each item and quantity to their sample order for that institution. Clients are able to set variable quotas per product, per rep, controlling their ordering per institution. Once the order is made, the rep will then be re-informed of the value of their order and their remaining monthly quota allowance.

Finally, the HCP must provide his ⁄ her signature onto the hand held device, and this is then collected by the sample app and the order authorised. This signature confirms the HCP has requested the ordered samples for patient initiationā„ education purposes within their hospital or practice and understand that the samples cannot be sold or otherwise misused.

 

API logistics services

Alloga UK have a licence to store active substances from the MHRA. This means that, as well as handling our clients finished pharmaceutical products, we can also store and distribute bulk APIs (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients). Often APIs are larger quantities of active ingredients compared to finished goods, and in some instances can be potentially hazardous. Therefore, APIs are stored in a segregated area of our Amber Park 5 warehouse, in a 15 - 25°C ambient-controlled environment with humidity monitoring.

As well as storing the APIs, we're also able to distribute them to locations where our clients require, whether that is a manufacturing site, research laboratory or a downstream customer. Alloga UK are able to handle the orders and distribution of APIs as we would an order of a finished pharmaceutical product.

Our new licence allows us to provide exactly the same services as we would for your finished products, as the correct operating procedures have been created, and our staff have been trained, to handle APIs in the manner that is expected by the MHRA and our clients.
