Expertise from a single source
Midas Pharma GmbH
Midas Pharma, headquartered in Ingelheim, Germany, is a specialist in products, services, and know-how covering the entire pharmaceutical value chain. True to their motto, “Expertise from a single source,” the medium-sized company is a partner for the distribution of active pharmaceutical ingredients as well as finished products and more. Their service portfolio also includes license deal brokering, pharmaceutical contract manufacturing, and support in regulatory and quality management issues. As a virtual enterprise, Midas creates value by providing a wealth of project management expertise and efficiently connecting the complementary parts - people, knowledge, and resources - to facilitate global pharmaceutical projects.
Midas was commissioned by a customer to take over the logistical control, order processing, and customer service for various finished pharmaceutical products and was faced with the challenge of connecting an external warehouse to the existing ERP system with an electronic interface within a short period of time:
Project kick-off was in December, with the go-live scheduled for early February.
A longterm partnership
In 2013, Midas and YAVEON began working together when the pharmaceutical company introduced the YAVEON ProBatch industry solution. Midas chose YAVEON due to the combination of their competence in the pharmaceutical industry, experience with validated environments, and their positive interpersonal rapport.
When EDI requirements arose in 2019, the ERP team connected Midas with the appropriate YAVEON counterpart, and the connection of the external warehouse was able to start immediately. Instead of implementing the logistic provider’s suggestion of a customized interface, YAVEON proposed using their ProE-SCM EDI standard warehouse connection. The standard connection fulfilled the requirements with ease. This saves time and effort, and also provides security.
Marc Link, Head of Digital Transformation at Midas, still remembers the early days: “We got started right away and drew on YAVEON’s experience and advice.” To coordinate the cooperation between Midas, the logistics company, and YAVEON, the three partners worked together to define the technical and organizational framework.
Communication is the key to success
Every project faces risks from unexpected situations. During the project, time constraints became apparent, but the project team worked together to stay focused on the goals. These challenges were overcome using close and cooperative project management with accurate transcripts and direct communication.
"We got started right away and drew on YAVEON’s experience and advice."
