Compiere ERP Selected by Pharmaceutical Distributor to Optimize Distribution Operations

(PresseBox) ( Redwood Shores, Calif., )
Compiere, Inc., the global leader in open source and cloud-based ERP solutions, today announced that pharmaceutical distributor, 3A Pharma, will replace its legacy ERP system with Compiere ERP in order to optimize the company's complex distribution operations. With annual revenues of US$180M, 3A Pharma is a Vietnam-based distributor (with corporate headquarters in Singapore) of Abbott Laboratories nutritional and pharmaceutical products. 3A Pharma employs more than 2,000 and has 150 "direct agencies" serving as distribution partners. The company's distribution network comprises a central distribution facility that supplies eight additional local distribution centers. Compiere Gold Partner, India-based Tenth Planet, will provide implementation and support services.

Having outgrown its legacy ERP system, 3A Pharma decided to replace it with an integrated, cost effective system. 3A Pharma's business requirements included local legal and financial regulation support, quick configurability, and flexible reporting functionality, all built with low cost, modern, and adaptable open source technology.

"Our current ERP system lacked the ability to incorporate the functional needs of our growing distribution business and provide us with critical information," said Tee Chin Wee, Information Management Director, 3A Pharma. "We required a cost effective solution that was fully adaptable to Vietnamese legal regulations and provided integrated, robust ERP functionality."

"We are delighted to have 3A Pharma as a new customer in the Asia/Pacific region," said Don Klaiss, president and CEO of Compiere. "3A Pharma's decision to replace a legacy system with Compiere ERP again demonstrates the market's trend toward low cost, adaptable, modern ERP systems can deliver a much lower total cost of ownership than traditional systems."

Compiere Partner, Tenth Planet, is working with 3A Pharma to define requirements and customize Compiere to fulfill 3A Pharma's unique business needs. One such customization is the development of specialized demand forecasting capabilities to support 3A Pharma's multiple distribution centers.
