Junction Solutions: Innovative Ways to Integrate ERP in Pharma Sector

Jeff Grell, CEO
The ever-changing market requirements, healthcare reforms, regulatory and compliance issues are having huge impact on management and business execution of pharmaceutical companies. The biggest challenges faced by these companies are in delivering quality and innovative products in a short span of time. At the same time manufacturers and suppliers are undertaking huge efforts to manage an increasingly complex supply chain, controlling charge backs and complying with increasing trade and government regulations. These call for extended capabilities in the ERP software. Founded in 2002, Junction Solutions offers a single enterprise suite of applications that supports the production and distribution processes, from planning to execution and management, built for the Life Science industry.

Headquartered in Denver, CO, Junction Solutions’ comprehensive portfolio includes extended-ERP applications, best-practice strategies, implementations, services, support and operational consulting along with flexible deployment options tailored to address a customer’s unique business processes.

Junction Solution’s ERP software solution, built on the leading Microsoft® Dynamics AX platform, can effortlessly track various properties, while optimizing and improving business processes like batch productions, sales functions, inventory control, purchasing, quality assurance, validation, accounting and financials and regulatory reporting. This functionality not only help companies control cost by improving data collection, but also assist them in understanding the true cost of operationsrelated to production, distribution or clinical. The system increases collaboration within the company and its suppliers and customers, facilitating compliance, lowering the high cost of chargeback management and regulatory oversight, while enhancing qualities. “Our solutions support the AX platform because it offers the best affordable, flexible, and scalable ease of use and functionality in the market. The flexible architecture of Microsoft Dynamics AX means it can grow and adapt with a company and its use of industry standards virtually eliminating the need for significant customizations or use of third party applications,” says Jeff Grell, CEO, Junction Solutions.


Our differentiation is our ability to deliver industry expertise, industry functionality, affordability and fast deployments


The company differentiates itself with its ability to deliver industry expertise, functionality, industry experienced consultants and reasonable and fast deployments, with a 90% customer satisfaction rating. “Our focus on those markets where we not only have the experience but also deliver the best of value keeps us ahead in the competition.The inherent nature of our business is delivering solutions to solve customers’ problems. Our consultants have field-proven IT expertise with hundreds of successful ERP implementations in their long list of accomplishments,” says Grell.

Junction Solutions has implemented its industry-specific solutions in various food and beverage, consumer packaged goods, retail and life sciences companies including pharmaceutical, contract clinical trial, and medical device manufacturers. For instance, a leading provider of immune cell therapy was facing problem with high costs for shared IT services from their parent company. Their business was running on multiple applications with poor integration, resulting in information silos. In a three phased rollout at its facilities in North America and Europe, Junction Solutions implemented the Dynamics AX suite. This single system replaced six enterprise systems and ultimately saved $1million per month in shared service fees for the client.

Moving forward, Junction Solutions plans to concentrate on customer’s inputs and evolving demands for functionality, which reflects their business; and timely and affordable deployments that carries low risk. “We will continue to focus on delivering solutions which address our core vertical markets, with the ultimate goal of delivering customer success in every engagement,” asserts Grell.
