Grupo Farmanova Intermed Increases Sales and Improves Processes with Collaborative Enterprise Solution

Jan 31, 2012, 17:33 PM by


In the late 1990s, Grupo Farmanova Intermed identified a need for software that would keep up with the company’s projected growth. Its goal was unified management of product logistics in a single country. Grupo Farmanova Intermed decided to implement Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Financial Management, Distribution, and Human Resources. The process has been extremely enriching for the company, contributing to operational growth and a more fulfilling corporate culture.

Business Drivers
  • Better informed decision making.
  • Lower costs.
  • Improved profitability.
Results: On the Threshold of New Business and a Larger Portfolio

With the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne applications, Grupo Farmanova Intermed has enhanced its capabilities for handling, distributing, and marketing pharmaceuticals. Managing information about Grupo Farmanova Intermed’s customers and products is crucial to maintaining and creating new, mutually beneficial business relationships. A better understanding of its customers, current and reliable information, a transparent relationship with the firms it represents, and the stability of its data are some of the benefits the company has attained, thanks to the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne software.

“A return on investment entails a series of internal changes to promote good practices for industry processes and controls.  After two years of learning and obtaining an overall familiarity with the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne solutions, the investment we made to implement them has more than paid off.  Our operations and underlying culture have undergone a substantial change, which is highly favorable in the mid and long term. The virtues and benefits we have seen with these applications have contributed to the growth of our company, which is rated number one in quality of service, with a 95% market share.”
