Why use an ERP as a Medical Device Manufacturer 

As a medical device manufacturer, you have a lot to manage. It can feel overwhelming to balance maintaining compliance standards with actually getting work done and creating products that help people.

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) can make day-to-day operations easier. With the right ERP, you can track what you need, manage your supply chain, and integrate with your other software to support your organization.

Track Everything

Tracking allows you to maintain compliance and see the essential data needed to run your business effectively. With a modern ERP, you should be able to see history, revision and recall tracking within moments right from your system.

With CloudSuite Industrial (CSI) from Infor, you can see who and when each step of the manufacturing process is completed in real-time, so you can ensure that everything is running smoothly. You can also easily export and document this information when demonstrating compliance or during a CAPA. With revision tracking, you can track changes to every part of the manufacturing process using CloudSuite Industrial’s intuitive interface, including drawings, documents, bills of materials, lot numbers, client names, serial numbers, leasing and warranty information. This thorough knowledge of the revision process is valuable during inspections and audits. In addition, recall tracking helps identify, address and set up measures to prevent recalls to protect consumers and a company’s reputation.

Supply Chain Management

Supply chain management let’s you manage your suppliers and ensure that they are meeting your compliance standards. There are a lot of pieces to supply chain management that an ERP needs to support, including:

  • Risk management
  • The Approved Supplier List (ASL)
  • Tracking, reporting and documentation
  • Validation and revalidation
  • Quality inspection

A modern ERP should make managing these many pieces easier. For instance, with CSI you can create automatic triggers for scheduling (inspections, revalidations, etc.) vetting items, and notifying about issues. You can also put inspection checklists and other procedures into your ERP as required fields, so business processes are completed correctly every time. Additionally, e-signatures make it easy for you to engage with clients and streamline the ordering process.

Integrate to Simplify

An ERP gives you an intuitive centralized platform for storing and analyzing your company’s information. However, it’s true that some medical device manufacturers benefit from using other software as well. Instead of having data siloed by separate, disconnected software, you can create a single source of truth by operating out of one system with an integration.

For instance, many medical device manufacturers utilize a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) to oversee lot tracing and sample history. With a LIMS integration connected to your ERP, you create data transparency while still protecting sensitive information through user permissions. This makes it far easier to stay on the same page with other teams or respond to issues rapidly. Unity: Integration by Datix is a fully managed integration that can offer the exact integration setup you want. Gain a single source of truth with Unity.
