Uniphar is celebrating the first year anniversary of the new Sales and Billing portal developed by ERPapps. Visit the new Uniphar Sales and Billing portal at www.uniphar.ie

Web sales have grown significantly since the launch, with web traffic increasing month-on-month. Customer feedback has been extremely positive, with many customers commenting on the site’s ease of use. The My Account option allows customers to view/print all billing documents and statements – this feature has proved a boon to busy pharmacists looking for a more efficient way to reconcile their accounts.

The Uniphar Project

posted in: case study | 0

UnipharUniphar is a leading Irish pharmaceutical wholesale and logistics company. In 2013 Uniphar implemented SAP ECC6 and ERPapps were engaged to design and develop a new Sales and Billing portal that was fully integrated with SAP. The new portal would replace the existing website available to “link” members and expand the customer base to include all retail pharmacists, hospitals and veterinary clinics.

Our goal was to build a site that a busy pharmacist could navigate with the minimum of fuss. We also wanted the site to positively promote the Uniphar brand.

The site was built on an open-source Java platform using SAP Services. Open-source Java gave us unlimited flexibility with a licence-free product. Using SAP Services allowed us to communicate directly with the core system, creating and confirming customer orders in real time while ensuring the accuracy of product pricing and stock levels. Our real-time link to the core system also guaranteed exact copies when it came to customer billing document reprints.

The final result is a site that has won the approval of Uniphar’s customers and suppliers alike. Our partnership with Uniphar is ongoing as they push to extend the site’s offerings and we strive to deliver a flexible and responsive platform that continues to grow online sales and brand recognition.

The Cahill May Roberts Project

CMR ProjectCahill May Roberts (CMR) was a pharmaceutical distribution and wholesale company and a subsidiary of Celesio, Europe’s leading provider of logistics and services to the pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors.

In 2012 the ERPapps team launched a new Sales and Billing portal to service CMR’s retail and hospital customer base with an online store. The portal also included a Billing Service that enabled users to manage their accounts online. Our solution was fully integrated with SAP, guaranteeing real time pricing and stock quantities while producing exact copies for any document reprint required. The site proved extremely successful and popular with both customers and suppliers.

ERPapps successfully expanded CMR’s online presence, delivering on sales growth while increasing brand recognition. In late 2012 Celesio sold CMR to Irish pharmaceutical wholesale and logistics company Uniphar.

In 2013 Uniphar looked to replicate the success of CMR’s SAP-integrated portal and engaged the ERPapps team
