ERP Systems for Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Life Sciences

ERP Software for Pharmaceutical Industry to Accelerate Digital Transformation

Managing the business aspects of life sciences can be a challenge. You must make complex scientific decisions, invest in clinical R&D, and stay on top of FDA —among other things. It is among the most lucrative industries in the world—and one of the most intensive when it comes to compliance and regulatory practices. As a result, you have to be agile and efficient as well as resilient to changes. You need an immediate solution—one that can scale as needed. The solution should be adaptable for future needs and compliant with regulations and legislation that cover clinical trials, patents, manufacturing, partnering, selling and more.

A life sciences company that has moved from largely manual processes to an ERP system will be able to see the difference in efficiency as soon as its new system is deployed. But the most important thing ERP brings to life sciences companies of all sizes is security. The implementation of a cloud-based ERP system can help you stay complaint.

Many life sciences companies say a recent failure was their inability to scale easily. Whether it was the inability to grow because of a lack of ability to implement new systems, or the inability to gauge resources required for expansion, companies need an ERP that can scale with them—automatically.

To adapt to evolving demands, life sciences organizations must be equipped with a digital operations platform that can manage every aspect of the business, from clinical trials to project management, planning & budgeting, financial reporting, inventory management, clinical supply chain, procurement, human resources (HR), and payroll.

Jade Global delivers a comprehensive suite of Virtual Pharma solutions that seamlessly integrate with Oracle Cloud ERP and NetSuite Cloud ERP, bringing cloud computing and ERP software for pharmaceutical industry industry to achieve success in this environment.

“The Virtual Pharma platform is a one stop shop, end-to-end solution that that incorporates everything a life sciences firm needs to streamline and automate its operations and covers the entire product lifecycle from discovery, pre-clinical, clinical development, commercial to post market monitoring”, said BK Srinivas, Senior VP, Enterprise Solutions, Enterprise Cloud Apps – Oracle, and VP Enterprise HCLS Solutions.

Broadly speaking, there are two business models in the pharma industry: manufacturing and development. The manufacturing model pursues a blockbuster strategy, where they invest in expensive drugs to reap large profits. The development model focuses on bringing new drugs to market—and is much more costly and time consuming; it requires more investments in R&D and takes more time to get FDA approval.

The second major trend is digital disruption. Companies realize that going digital can help them manage costs, create efficiencies, and provide better customer experiences. Digital platforms increase speed through automation, which enables companies to deliver services faster and at lower cost.

The Virtual Pharma Solution offers modular process and analytics integration through the value chain. It answers niche Life Sciences business needs that include CG&P requirements like compliance, security, and master data management.
