The Business System for Project-Driven Life Sciences Companies

Projects are the center of your business. Make projects the center of your business system with Project Business Automation for SAP.

Simplify research and development processes, reduce waste while improving agility, be more productive and improve delivery on your projects.

Are you a project-based biotech, life sciences or pharmaceutical firm?

In the biotech and life sciences industry, a great deal of what you do may be project-based.

  • Research and development
  • Testing and analysis
  • Design of new formulations or compounds
  • Genetic engineering
  • Contract manufacturing
  • Facility or equipment development

No matter what you produce or service you provide, if you do it through projects for your customers, you are a project business.

Projects drive your business processes and therefore should be at the center of your business system.

Project-Driven Biotech Business Problems

Adeaca solves your biggest challenges as a project-driven biotech/life sciences company.

"My ERP does not support our project-based processes."

ERPs are financial systems originally built for discrete manufacturers and distribution companies. Projects are an after-thought for most ERP vendors.

"We use spreadsheets everywhere in our processes."

You use spreadsheets because you don’t have your data in one place and/or you don’t have a system that can help you analyze it.

"Our project estimates are not accurate, consistent, or timely."

Your quotes don't represent what is actually required for a project. As a result, you lose deals when you over-estimate and lose money when you under-estimate.

"We don't have a good way to track costs once the project starts."

You cannot track the costs of operations because they are not directly tied to your financial system.

Any of these sound familiar?

Project Business Automation is enterprise software built for the project-driven Biotech and Life Science business:

  • Generate accurate project plans and estimates in minutes
  • Streamline processes and systemize best practices
  • Actively connect your production to your project plan so your projects drive your manufacturing
  • Automatically identify capacity constraints and downstream issues and resolve them quicker
  • Your Project schedule drives revenue recognition
  • Improve agility through increased transparency and visibility into your business
  • Easily estimate capacity to take on new projects

PBA helps you go lean with your contract manufacturing

Separate systems and tools for the different elements of your business kill your bottom line.

Incremental improvements in small areas are not going to make a big difference to your business. If you are a contract manufacturing organization (CMO / CDMO) for the biotech/pharma industry, you need to think like a project business.

Projects are the center of your business. They should drive your supply chain, production, MRP, resourcing, and financials.

Move beyond the optimization of manufacturing by itself. Stop thinking in silos and optimize your business.

Project Business Automation brings projects front and center and eliminates waste in the process.
