Key Life Sciences Vertical Segments:

At QAD, we deliver high-quality, industry-focused ERP software to manufacturing companies. To take your business to the next level, we offer focused attention on vertical segments for each of our industry editions. We’re here to help you become an Adaptive Manufacturing Enterprise.

Life sciences contract manufacturers provide manufacturing, packaging and other contract services for pharmaceutical and medical device companies. They face a competitive and fragmented market that demands greater operational efficiency and focus on key metrics like inventory reduction, capacity utilization and improved customer service metrics.

In vitro diagnostic (IVD) companies manufacture reagents and instruments intended for use in the screening, diagnosis and monitoring of disease. IVD manufacturers are challenged to produce innovative assays and keep pace with rapidly changing clinical trends while remaining focused on developing novel solutions that optimize testing efficiency and patient results.

Surgical manufacturers produce specially designed devices or kits used for performing specific actions during surgery. With increasing regulation, intense competition and reduced reimbursement, surgical device companies are being driven to improve hospital-focused metrics like increased operating room efficiency and reduction in patient visits.

Orthopedic companies develop and manufacture orthopedic implants used to replace missing joints or bones. More than ever, manufacturers work directly with physicians to devise comprehensive orthopedic solutions. Whether manufacturing minimally invasive orthopedic implants or complex, robotic-driven tools for surgery, orthopedic device companies are reinventing their approach to patient care.

Pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies discover and manufacture medicines that cure and manage disease and protect from infection. They face a competitive, global market governed by rigorous regulations and complex supply chains and look for ways to integrate quality into their core business processes and supply chain planning.
