One of the industries where digitalization holds particular significance is the pharmaceutical industry. With technological advancements, increasing regulatory requirements and the complexity of medicines and medical device production, pharmaceutical companies must focus on innovative solutions to meet growing consumer expectations and ensure patient safety.
For contract pharmaceutical packaging and medical device services providers like Prespack, optimization is essential to improve the efficiency and quality of processes. To meet this challenge, the implementation of electronic process recording and computerized systems, known as digitalization and automation of manufacturing and planning processes, becomes necessary.
What are ERP systems in the pharmaceutical industry?
In the dynamic and competitive business environment, digitalization plays a crucial role in ensuring the efficiency and operational improvement of companies. Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems are indispensable tools that enable businesses to undergo digital transformation and optimize their processes.
For companies offering serialization, aggregation and contract packaging of medicinal products, knowledge of the current production process and the ability to analyze data in real-time have become extremely important. Therefore, Prespack made the decision some time ago to implement an ERP system, enabling the automation of data collection and verification of production progress to adapt to changing market requirements and meet customer expectations.
The ERP system implemented at Prespack is comprehensive software designed to manage enterprise resources. The chosen ERP system integrates various aspects of pharmaceutical company operations, such as finance, inventory management, production, sales, orders and other key elements critical to the pharmaceutical sector.
The implementation of computerized systems at Prespack contributed to process optimization. Electronic process recording allows for close monitoring of production progress and real-time data analysis, enabling swift responses to potential issues and effective corrective actions. Automation of data collection and verification also improves process precision and quality.
The computerized system implemented at Prespack also enables better control of service efficiency. Through electronic process recording, the company maintains complete control over activities performed at each stage of the packaging process. The ability to analyze data accurately allows for identification of areas for improvement and optimization of production efficiency.
With the system deployed at Prespack, we can trace the path of specific product batches from delivery, with precise timestamps for each stage. Similarly, process recording accumulates real-time data, ultimately leading to process optimization. The ability to reconstruct the production process enhances patient safety.
Optimization of manufacturing and packaging processes is achievable through the implementation of electronic process recording. This arises from the need to enhance efficiency and quality. Knowledge of the ongoing process and its real-time analysis has become highly significant. Achieving these goals requires the design and implementation of an appropriate computerized system. The primary aim of our ERP system is to enhance operational efficiency by integrating business processes and ensuring consistent information flow between various departments in the organization. Consequently, the company can better manage resources, optimize production processes, improve sales efficiency, and enhance customer service.
Key benefits resulting from the use of an ERP system include increased efficiency, elimination of redundancies and errors, better resource utilization, improved collaboration between different company departments, and the ability to make informed decisions based on accurate data.
At Prespack, we understand that to adapt to the market situation and meet client requirements as a company specializing in contract packaging of medicinal products and substances containing psychotropic substances, we had to implement a system enabling the automation of data collection and verification of production progress. This challenge stands before the entire industry, and we have taken steps in this direction to ensure the highest quality of services we provide.
