Most back office financial systems do not address the needs for trial cost visibility, patient / site driver based planning or trial forecast variance analysis. Many companies will find themselves utilizing complicated, stand-alone excel spreadsheets to try to keep up. The spreadsheet approach can be cumbersome, inefficient and often result in inaccurate or untimely analyses. To address this challenge, Apps Associates has developed a Clinical Trials Planning and Reporting Solution that leverages world class Oracle Cloud solutions:

As Biotech manufacturing companies have evolved, so too have to have their ERP requirements.  Oracle ERP Cloud has continuously evolved to include extensive Biotech manufacturing features and capabilities. Using Oracle ERP Cloud, Apps Associates can help you automate the ability to make “batches” of medicines or intermediates with recipes, variable inputs and yields, multiple units of measure, lot numbering, expiration dating and traceability. We can also help you implement Oracle’s robust Quality module for integrated manufacturing inspections, process monitoring and non-conformance tracking. The nice thing is you don’t have to choose between an internal and an external manufacturing model. Oracle ERP Cloud allows you to mix and match functionality as desired to manage internal manufacturing as well as supplier / CMO based external manufacturing.
