A perfect fit for the validated

Pharmaceutical environment

ERP for the pharmaceutical industry

Pharmaceuticals are becoming increasingly individualized, quality requirements are higher and regulations are numerous: the GUS-OS Suite enables pharmaceutical companies to achieve largely automated and lean production in this environment. Almost 40 years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry have gone into the GUS Group's process-oriented ERP solution. The GUS-OS Suite is currently used by around 60 pharmaceutical manufacturers (human and veterinary medicine), contract manufacturers and pharmaceutical distributors. It ensures the planning, production and delivery of high-quality medicines. All business processes are compliant with regulations. And the industry processes supplied as standard can also be modeled individually for each customer.

Because of their dynamic market environment, pharmaceutical companies have to adapt their processes and software again and again. For this purpose, they need, for example, improved calculation schemes for external product and service offers, IT applications for tender management or tools for supplier evaluation. The GUS-OS Suite is specially designed for the process industry and offers corresponding functions. In addition, GUS Group consultants work with customers to find answers to other regulatory and business management questions. Always with the goal of optimizing the efficiency and transparency of business processes.

ERP validation for pharmaceutical companies

Regulated companies in the pharmaceutical sector that want to introduce new software must check the impact of the system on patient safety, product quality and data integrity. If this is the case, the software must be introduced in such a way that a validated "computerized system" is used at the end of the project. The computerized system is always the complete system, consisting of software, hardware, infrastructure components used and connected devices as well as the specific operation and use within the specific company processes.

Process improvement in real time

The Business Intelligence (BI) solution integrated in the GUS-OS Suite calculates process and financial key figures in real time. These key performance indicators (KPI) create the necessary process transparency and thus offer fact-based decision-making aids to adapt and optimize processes at short notice. In addition to daily evaluations on an hourly basis, forecasts and projections into the future are possible. In this way, throughput times of specific batches can be analyzed, as can the effort required for picking outgoing goods, right through to the capacity utilization figures of individual production areas.

Process development for the serialization of products

Together with the companies, our pharmaceutical consultants develop the business processes required for the implementation of the EU Falsification Directive 2011/62/EU. They then extend the standard processes mapped in the GUS-OS Suite to include company-specific processes. The result is clear: clear coding of secondary pharmaceutical packaging to protect against plagiarism.
