The key differentiating factor of NNIT is its ability to build flexible platforms that align with the evolving drug development prerequisites. In tandem with this, the company uses its proprietary Advising, Building, Operating and Supporting (ABOS) service model to understand clients’ businesses at the commencement of collaborations. Following this, it builds a customized platform for clients and then maintains it for the next five to ten years. During that period, NNIT continues to enhance the platform’s functionalities to provide its clientele a competitive advantage. “The ABOS model offers a comprehensive solution set, thereby improving productivity and efficiency in the manufacturing of drugs,” states Xing.
