About Us

Leading clients into the future of life sciences

Ten Count Consulting started in 2013 by Mark Karhoff, and the company has successfully implemented transformative supply chain innovations at both multinational consulting firms and Fortune 500 companies. After spending ten years on IBM global projects, our Founder decided to pursue entrepreneurship and started Ten Count Consulting. Our name is inspired by a military veteran leader who mentored Mark early in his career and taught the practice of a visual inspection “ten count” – a quick measure of team productivity to make sure processes and systems are functioning optimally.

Our first client was in the pharmaceutical industry, and we have worked with many companies to interpret and create solutions to comply with the US Drug Supply Chain Security Act, evolving global serialization regulations and other system and supply chain challenges. We understand the stress involved in ensuring your customers are safe and your supply chain is ready for the DSCSA serialization deadlines.  We strive to become our clients trusted partner, and our passion is to help you into the future of health sciences.
