ERP Solution in the Biotech Sector

Believe it or not, it doesn’t have to be an industry solution. We make companies in the biotech sector better with our standards-based approach.

Useful for most Industries:

ERP Standard Solution instead of Rigid Industry Solution

We have not committed ourselves to specific sectors. Nevertheless, we now have a number of biotech customers and are very familiar with the challenges in this sector. What is our approach to ERP software for the biotechnology sector? In a nutshell: We always use the standard ERP solution Dynamics 365 Business Central (formerly Dynamics NAV/Navision) as a basis and add other technologies such as Microsoft Office 365, the Microsoft Power Platform and industry-specific add-ons. If necessary, we can also program individual adaptations for you. This is what sets us apart from our competitors. Your system remains updatable and you remain independent of the partner company.

Standard ERP Solution

Experience has shown that we can map the majority of our projects in the Dynamics 365 Business Central standard. The system standard includes all processes (e.g., finance, warehouse).

Add-Ons

If the standard solution is not sufficient, we can easily solve some challenges with add-ons and Microsoft products (e.g., Microsoft 365, Microsoft Power Platform).

Adjustments

If you require further special functionalities, we can solve your challenges with individual adaptations. Contact us and we will be happy to advise you on your request.

ERP Software for Biotechnology:

Functions for ERP Software in the Biotechnology Sector

Icon representing a light bulb

Research and Development

In the biotech industry, research and development come first. Nevertheless, production must proceed efficiently.

With Dynamics 365 Business Central, you have an ideal IT foundation. It enables you to manage cost calculations and bills of materials. You can also handle sample shipments through it. Various manufacturing methods can also be mapped.

The following customization is also possible and popular:

  • Document management (interface/add-on)

    For professional document management, we offer an interface to third-party software (e.g., D3) or the fully integrated solution Document Capture. Manage documents anytime, anywhere.

    With the Continia Document Output add-on, you gain a software solution for managing digital file outputs from Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. The add-on saves you time and reduces your complex manual processes, helping you keep track of all sent and created documents.

Batching Management

The nature of goods in the biotech sector poses particular challenges for warehouse and batch management. Many special pieces of information must be recorded (e.g., cell tissue, ethnic origin). It is crucial to be able to track the entire flow of goods.
In Dynamics 365 Business Central, you can enable serial and batch management to track batches in detail within the company. This allows you to see which batch was used for which process, at what time, and under what conditions. With permission management, you can ensure that only authorized personnel can modify batch information. This way, you always benefit from real-time inventory data.

In the production and shipping process, it is, of course, possible to split and mix batches.

Manage Logistics

Shipping must comply with legal regulations (e.g., inclusion of certain documents). This also applies to customs clearance for international shipments. Additionally, smooth communication along the supply chain and digital interactions should be possible.
Dynamics 365 Business Central can greatly support you in warehousing, such as separating storage areas (e.g., cold storage).

The system may not support all aspects of logistics. Therefore, the following customizations are possible and popular:

  • Electronic data interchange (add-on)

    With Anveo EDI, you can easily exchange data

    • with your customers (e.g., orders, invoices, credit notes, delivery notifications, product data, availability, prices),
    • with partner companies (better business relationships through automated processes),
    • with manufacturing companies (e.g., order processing, confirmations, availability, or delivery notes), or
    • between locations/tenants (e.g., financial data and product information).
  • Supplier qualification (Power BI)

    With Power BI, you can evaluate suppliers based on soft and hard criteria.

  • Perpetual inventory (customization)

    Handling fixed-date inventories often closes business operations for hours or days, and external service companies are used for counting. This effort can be minimized with perpetual inventory. We offer a solution that can be used parallel to daily operations in Dynamics 365 Business Central (formerly Dynamics NAV/Navision). Inventory staff receive a personal stack of counting lists to be processed (exported from Dynamics 365 Business Central). After counting – for example, using a scanner – the data is recorded and transferred back to the standard Dynamics 365 Business Central.

  • Route planning (interface)

    You can map route planning in Dynamics 365 Business Central. Assign individual items and sales lines to a vehicle, triggering picking and shipping from the route planning.

    For optimal route planning, we implement an interface to software from a provider (e.g., Wanko). This allows you to optimize your routes, even across personnel.

  • Shipping processing and label creation (add-on)

    For optimal shipping processing and label printing, we offer an interface to the Comsol Multiship add-on.

  • Shipping tracking via DPD, FedEx & Co. (interface)

    For shipping tracking, we program an interface to a third-party provider (e.g., DPD, FedEx).

    Preconfigured add-ons serve several service companies and require paper documents (e.g., invoice, delivery notes). Some companies prefer to work exclusively with one company (e.g., FedEx) and want to move away from paper-based work. We program an interface for you (e.g., to FedEx), allowing fully digital shipping.

  • Certification (customization)

    Need to prove certain certifications via the delivery note? No problem. We modify the standard slightly to enable this function.

  • Customs processing (customization)

    Deliveries from biotech companies to regions like the USA involve a lot of effort due to high regulations. Specifically, numerous documents must accompany each shipment. To avoid handling this manually and to remember all relevant documents, we program a custom solution that automates this process for you.

Controlling Quality

Quality comes first. Therefore, it is crucial in the biotech sector to comply with legal regulations, binding companies to regulations and quality and process controls. Dynamics 365 Business Central does not offer quality control functions.

However, the following customization is possible and popular:

Writing Invoices
