AX for Pharma 365™: Your Complete Cloud ERP Solution for Life Sciences

On February 21, 2023

When it comes to product management and development, life sciences companies face significant challenges. There’s the constant pressure to accelerate manufacturing capabilities, reduce the time-to-market, and cut costs – all while complying with increasingly complex regulations.

How do you address these challenges, though? How do you continue to develop, manufacture, and distribute critical products without falling short of regulatory requirements? And how can you scale your operations to deliver safe products to the marketplace at volume?

AX for Pharma 365™, a fully-integrated cloud ERP system for life sciences companies, is the solution. Here’s what you can expect from this life sciences ERP and why it’s the complete cloud solution your business needs.

Introducing a Comprehensive Cloud ERP Solution from AX for Pharma 365™

AX for Pharma 365™ is an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution designed specifically for the pharmaceutical industry. It helps to simplify your operations, mitigate risks, and enhance your ability to make critical, data-driven decisions to scale your business.

The best part? You can customize your stack, taking advantage of the modules you need without over-complicating the system. AX for Pharma 365™ is built for you – you can tailor it to suit your specific needs, whether you’re a startup or a multinational corporation.

Key Product Benefits

Whether you’re in medical devices or pharmaceuticals, here are the four major benefits of choosing the AX for Pharma 365™ cloud ERP suite.

Improved Accuracy

A single miscalculation can compromise product safety, especially when it comes to weighing and dispensing or inventory management. AX for Pharma 365™ reduces the risk of human error by quickly highlighting irregularities, helping you reconcile figures, and automating core processes.

Enhanced Integration

AX for Pharma 365™ is not just an ERP – it integrates a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS), too. Personnel can access everything from sample flows to supply chain codes instantly without moving between systems (and increasing the risk of error).

Risk Mitigation

The ease of access to accurate data reduces the risk of manufacturing suboptimal or unsafe products. Additionally, our fully-integrated cloud ERP software supports your validation and compliance efforts, which helps reduce the risk of regulatory breaches.

Cost Control

Fewer errors and accelerated operations help to reduce your costs without compromising on accuracy, reliability, or, ultimately, patient safety.

Features and Tools

How does AX for Pharma 365™ deliver these essential service benefits for life sciences companies? It all comes down to these five product features.

1. Streamlined Workflows

From warehouse to supply chain management, AX for Pharma 365™ delivers user-friendly modules that are highly configurable and responsive to changes. Task automation streamlines your workflow and helps reduce time-to-market.

2. Flexible Deployment Options

From on-site hosted cloud services to remote subscriptions, AX for Pharma 365™ gives you control over your infrastructure. You’re always in control – this cloud ERP for life sciences is designed to work for you.

3. Scalable Modalities

The modules are easily scalable, meaning you can quickly deploy new tools and scale existing services as your business needs evolve without increasing costs or training new staff.

And, since everything is unified, you can focus on scaling your business rather than wasting time on cumbersome integrations.

4. In-built Compliance Support

Pharma companies must comply with good manufacturing practices (GxP). The GxP FastTrack™ module incorporates best practices and directly supports companies with GxP compliance. AX for Pharma 365™ is uniquely designed to help you comply with FDA 21 CFR Part 11, too.

5. Automated Testing

The automated testing stack accelerates the testing process, helping you validate your systems, reduce downtime, and eliminate unexpected software errors with ease.

Why Microsoft Dynamics 365?

AX for Pharma chose Microsoft Dynamics 365 ERP for a simple reason.

It’s a world-leading ERP.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 already offers a comprehensive range of ERP aspects, including sales, inventories, supply chain management, and project management. It allows companies to scale their operations, streamline workflows, and make data-driven decisions without increasing the complexity of their IT system.

What’s more, it offers a secure, user-friendly interface, making it the perfect building block for specialized life sciences ERP software like AX for Pharma 365™.

Who Is AX for Pharma 365™ Designed for?

The AX for Pharma 365™ modalities are designed uniquely for life sciences companies. In particular, the modules are built to support companies of all sizes in the following industries:

  • Pharmaceutical companies
  • Biotech
  • Medical devices

If you’re in life sciences, you could benefit from the user-friendly, low-cost modules offered by AX for Pharma. You can build the stack you need and access every service from a single, fully-integrated ERP system.

Why Use a Specialized Life Sciences ERP?

It’s not uncommon for life sciences companies to adopt software that lacks complete integration. When ERP tools are spread across multiple platforms, they’re hard to reconcile. Comparing and compiling data from various sources is time consuming and highly prone to error.

In life sciences, where accuracy matters, these errors can reduce your output, cost money, and damage your reputation.

Rather than reconciling data from across disjointed systems, a specialized life sciences ERP like AX for Pharma 365™ does the hard work for you. It’s entirely tailored to your sector’s unique demands, and the integration means every data set you need is accessible from a single platform.

As a result, there’s less risk of costly mistakes and you can streamline your operations.

What’s more, dedicated life sciences ERP software is designed to grow with your business as it evolves, helping you meet your compliance requirements and maintain a simplified, fully-trackable workflow.

What Makes AX for Pharma 365™ Unique?

The combination of a leading ERP platform – Microsoft Dynamics 365 – with customization for the pharmaceutical industry makes this solution unique. With AX for Pharma 365™, customers get all the benefits of Microsoft’s dynamic ERP customized specifically for the unique needs of life sciences companies.

From asset management to weighing and dispensing, this ERP solution delivers the best components of Microsoft Dynamics 365 and unifies them into a single platform for pharma companies. The platform offers you a comprehensive overview – and complete control – over each step of your manufacturing process to help you innovate and deliver pioneering new products to the marketplace.      

Why Is a Cloud ERP Solution Important?

AX for Pharma 365™ is the only complete cloud solution for life sciences companies. But why does this matter – what makes a cloud solution so important? There are three reasons.

1. Acceleration

The life sciences sector is evolving at a rapid pace. Gone are the days when it took, say, 10 years to develop a vaccine – we’re now looking at 12 months to develop, produce, and bring a safe product to market. The cloud is well-placed to support large-scale operations running at such an accelerated speed.

2. Accuracy

From pharma to biotech, accuracy is critical to manufacturing safe and effective products. The cloud allows companies to collaborate with ease and base decisions on accurate, real-time data. Greater accuracy equals fewer errors and reduced downtime for your business.

3. Security

Cloud technology based on a robust infrastructure like Microsoft Azure benefits from enhanced security and, in turn, improved regulatory compliance. As a life sciences company, regulatory compliance has never been more important, so the cloud can help you reach your goals.

How Should Companies Choose Life Sciences ERP Software from AX for Pharma 365™?

Choosing an ERP for life sciences companies is no easy task. The team understands how daunting it can be to find a balance between cost, efficiency, and scalability, which is why AX for Pharma 365™ offers so much value. Before you commit to a cloud ERP solution, here’s how you might proceed.

  • Consider what you need from your cloud ERP. For example, think about your company’s pain points – such as compliance issues or supply chain errors – and how you might solve these problems with IT.
  • Do your research. Carefully evaluate the solutions on offer and determine which services align best with your goals.
  • Check that your chosen partner has industry expertise. After all, it’s not just about the life sciences software itself – it’s about the people you’re working with. A team without the requisite knowledge will be unable to help you solve your company’s ERP issues or train your personnel.
  • Ask questions. Your chosen provider should be happy to answer your questions so you can make informed decisions regarding your company’s future.
  • Weigh up your options. Reflect on the pros and cons of each solution before committing your time – and resources – to a suboptimal service.

Above all, remember to think long term. Your cloud ERP software should be agile, scalable, and reliable enough to grow with you as your business evolves.
