Swedish Inpac Pharma Selects Epicor to Improve Quality Processes

Realizing Time Savings and Improved Traceability With Epicor

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN--(Marketwire - Sep 14, 2011) - Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organizations, today announced that one of the Nordic's oldest manufacturers of medical packaging, Inpac Pharma, has selected Epicor's next-generation enterprise resource planning (ERP) system to improve its quality and business processes. The choice fell on Epicor due to its easy adaptability to the requirements and traceability that the medical packaging and distribution industry needs.

Until now Inpac Pharma has been documenting the quality processes manually as well as through a separate quality system, resulting in a lot of manual work as well as other time consuming processes. This is now replaced with one single system where quality assurance is included in the workflows via a quality module within the ERP system, resulting in improved accuracy, time savings, and simplified traceability because everything is recorded in the same database.

"We chose Epicor because it gives us a solution that fits our industry where the demands on quality and traceability are high," said Peter Thulin, managing director for Inpac Pharma. "The entire quality assurance and quality control processes will now be included in the actual workflow rather than being kept as a separate function that is processed separately. Also, Epicor's consultants have extensive expertise within the medical industry and they demonstrated that they understand our business processes and requirements, something that will make it easier for us to go live faster. With Epicor we will become even more competitive within our markets."

"Epicor's next-generation ERP system is built entirely on a service-oriented architecture (SOA) which means that it's easy to adjust and change business processes without having to do complicated coding work," said Stefan Westelius, vice president, sales for Epicor. "Our experience of medical devices and pharmaceutical businesses are other factors that contribute to our success in these industries."
