BROOMFIELD, COLO. - April 30, 2024 -- ZS Associates, a global leader in life sciences consulting and analytics, and Conga, the global leader in Revenue Lifecycle Management solutions, are proud to announce a strategic partnership to help solve industry challenges for life sciences companies including a new Market Access Contracting solution.  

This partnership combines Conga's industry-leading pricing and contracting solution and platform with ZS Associates' more than 40 years of vertical expertise to solve complex revenue lifecycle problems and deliver reliable solutions to customers. With the rising demand for innovative life sciences solutions, the ZS-Conga partnership signals a commitment to advancing access to life-changing services and improving the contracting process in the life sciences industry.

Focused on healthcare and life sciences, with capabilities in financial services, travel, and hospitality, hi-tech and telecommunications, and retail industries, ZS Associates and Conga are organized to deliver end-to-end solutions for their customers and develop new jointly delivered solutions to meet customers on their revenue lifecycle management journey. Through a recent customer engagement for a Top 10 Pharmaceutical Manufacturer, Conga and ZS Associates provided the smoothest project delivery that one of the company’s IT leaders had seen in their almost 20-year career. 

Tom Cowen Director of Vertical Strategy for Healthcare & Life Sciences at Conga added, " Together, Conga and ZS Associates deliver transformative solutions that enable life sciences companies to navigate the complexities of market access contracting more efficiently. By combining ZS's industry-leading expertise with Conga's advanced digital transformation capabilities, we are poised to drive significant value for our customers in this critical sector."

The two companies also recently partnered to create a Market Access Pricing and Contracting solution.  The solution supports both Payer and Provider contracting and guides business users from Term Sheet to Contract, making the process more efficient and enabling Pricing teams to focus on analytics and customer requirements to win more deals at the best price. The Market Access solution leverages Conga's market-leading Pricing and Contacting capabilities with ZS's delivery accelerators (Data Model, Page Layouts, Workflows, etc..). The new solution will empower organizations to streamline contracting processes, enhance compliance, and accelerate time-to-market for life-saving therapies and treatments.

 “We at ZS Associates are thrilled about our recent partnership with Conga. As an acknowledged leader in the Life Sciences Pricing & Contracting space, Conga’s best-in-class platform perfectly complements ZS’s deep vertical expertise and solution implementation best practices and allows us to jointly deliver high-value solutions to our Life Sciences customers,” said Eric Kalabacos, Associate Partner at ZS Associates. “Our recent success delivering an end-to-end Market Access Contracting solution for a major biopharmaceutical manufacturer is a great example of the high-quality solutions we can deliver together. We look forward to an exciting future as we continue to grow our partnership.”
