Contract Research Organizations

Contract Research Organizations (CRO) are dynamic businesses that are constantly reacting to client-driven, regulatory-driven, and other business requirements that are placed on them.  As large pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device companies continue to navigate changes to their regulatory environment and expand their businesses globally, their CRO service providers are expected to follow suit.  As a result, the need to manage global studies in a profitable and efficient manner has never been so prevalent.

Overcoming these challenges can be the difference between success and failure in the CRO market.  Having complete visibility across your business, including any global operations, is now an organizational imperative.  This can only be achieved through the use of an integrated ERP software platform that provides real-time insight into the performance of your finances, clients, projects, and employees.  

Microsoft Dynamics for Contract Research Organizations

  • Services-driven organizations face unique challenges not encountered in other industries. Having intelligent tools that help you manage critical financial resources, effectively sell and deliver project-based services, manage valuable human capital, and quickly react to changing client needs can be the difference between success and failure.
    For services firms that require an adaptable and easy-to-use business system that was purpose-built for their industry, SAGlobal offers the Microsoft Dynamics Service Industries ERP solution, along with our vertical-specific extensions – Projects+.
    Our Microsoft Dynamics ERP solution can help CROs:
    • Easily expand into new global markets, assimilate new acquisitions, and accommodate changes to your organizational structure
    • Manage the complete lifecycle of a study, from business development through revenue recognition, in a single integrated system
    • Maximize study profitability by streamlining key study-related business processes such as pricing, time and expense management, and billing
    • Optimize resource management practices to maximize utilization across your employee base
    • Provide Project Managers and Study Directors with tools to more effectively manage their studies
    SAGlobal has worked with a number of CROs looking to enhance business performance through the implementation of a new ERP solution. Our Dynamics ERP software solution and consulting services can help CROs not only address the challenges that they face today, but enable a scalable and flexible platform that will support their business well into the future.
