Top 3 Reasons Why QAD ERP is Perfect for the Life Science Industry

Posted on: September 14, 2015 | By: Craig Thompson | QAD Business Process

In the world of manufacturing and distribution, the life science industry is a rare breed. Like most industries, life sciences strive for innovation, combat with competitors, and ensure product safety for all customers. Yet, unlike most industries, the life science sector must constantly address to new FDA regulations, frequent recalls, and increasing costs. Within this industry, in order to run successfully and fight the pressures of a difficult market, it is crucial to have an ERP system that is able to grow and adapt to changes quickly and easily. Put simply, there are three key reasons why implementing QAD ERP is essential for any life science company:

1. QAD ERP is the only ERP solution for life sciences that is available on an FDA “qualified” infrastructure.

2. QAD allows for greater global supply chain visibility and governance.

3. QAD ERP is accessible anywhere, from any device.

First, and uniquely to life sciences, QAD ERP is the only ERP solution that is available on an FDA “qualified” infrastructure. This means that features in QAD are managed with standard operating procedures (SOPs) that meet regulatory requirements for computer systems and software specified by the FDA. With this, QAD helps reduce time to validation and reduce compliance risks.  QAD also has in depth traceability and serialization functionality to help companies easily manage reporting and conduct recalls efficiently.

When it comes to managing supply chain, QAD provides life science companies greater visibility across both production and distribution activities. The QAD supplier portal allows for real time visibility into supply chain functions, while QAD transportation management features combine freight management, global trade management, trade compliance and package exception functionality all into one unified solution.

Lastly, a positive aspect that resonates with companies in all industries – the sheer accessibility of QAD ERP. QAD is located within the cloud, which means that its functionality is accessible anywhere, from any device. 

When life science industries choose QAD ERP as their enterprise resource solution they are investing in a product that not only supports global growth and expansion, but also rapidly meets the ever-evolving compliance requirements within their industry.
