Inventory management system for the pharmaceutical wholesale trade

Enterprise systems

The project centred on the migration of the preexisting inventory management system with the aim of efficiently mapping the specific business processes of pharmaceutical whole salers and the implementation of new web based requirements that can only be integrated into the pre existing architecture in a very complex and cost intensive way.

In addition to controlling key business processes such as order processing, purchasing and storage, the software implements interfaces to automated warehouse management systems and for secure data exchange between clients and pharmaceutical wholesalers over the internet. Key factors for success are extensive automation of order entry and order management, a high degree of delivery service and short order throughput times.
