Leading Global CRO Optimizes its Projects with sa.global and Microsoft Dynamics 365

Company overview

Our client is a leading global full-service contract research organization (CRO) specializing in international clinical trials. In addition to core clinical operations and clinical trial management services, the organization also provides regulatory and medical affairs consulting, medical writing, biostatistics, QA, data management, and other related services in a wide range of therapeutic areas and most major indications.

Client overview

Our client is a leading global contract research organization (CRO) that helps pharmaceutical and biotech companies bring new products to market.

Solution

sa.global worked with our client to implement Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations as the organization’s new global ERP platform.

Results

Through the implementation of Microsoft Dynamics 365, our client has:

  • Gained an integrated global platform
  • Standardized key processes globally
  • Improved access to important data
  • Simplified their IT portfolio

Global operations require global visibility

Across its international operations, our client used several disparate systems to run their business. This included Quickbooks and a variety of other local accounting systems for financial management, Replicon for time and expense, and a series of Excel spreadsheets for proposals and project accounting processes.

As the organization continued its international growth, these disparate systems:

  • Required manual and redundant data entry in a number of areas
  • Created challenges in efficiently managing key project-related processes
  • Limited management’s visibility across the global business

Targeted solution for industry’s unique needs

Contract research organizations have unique needs related to managing complex study budgets and performing unit-based forecasting and billing. These unique requirements require a flexible ERP platform that can be adapted to the unique needs of the industry. After evaluating several ERP platforms, including Infor and Deltek, our client chose Microsoft Dynamics 365 as their new platform.

A key element of this solution was sa.global’s projects360 (formerly known as Projects+) solution for Microsoft Dynamics 365. projects360 provides enhancements to a number of important processes such as resourcing and billing as well as a pre-built, industry-relevant BI and reporting solution utilizing Azure SQL and Power BI

Simplify the IT footprint with a cloud solution

Since implementing Microsoft Dynamics 365, our client has been able to:

  • Gain an integrated platform that all global entities and locations can utilize to manage key financial and operational business processes
  • Improve the management of critical project- and resource-related processes while standardizing globally on core processes
  • Provide stakeholders with improved access to key business data
  • Simplify the organization’s IT footprint and reduce costs through an integrated cloud platform
