Contract Research Organizations

Contract Research Organizations (CROs) are dynamic businesses that are constantly adapting to complex changes in their business environment. As large pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device companies continue to navigate changes to their regulatory environment and expand their businesses globally, service providers like CROs are expected to quickly follow suit. As a result, the need to manage global studies in a profitable and efficient manner has never been so prevalent.

Overcoming these challenges can be the difference between success and failure in the CRO market. Having complete, real-time visibility across your business, most notably your global projects and resource pools, is now an organizational imperative. This can only be achieved through the use of an integrated ERP and CRM software platform that provides real-time insight into the performance of your finances, clients, projects, and employees.  

Microsoft Dynamics for Contract Research Organizations

  • CROs face unique challenges not encountered in other industries. Managing global studies with complex billing and revenue recognition rules, tracking and billing unit-based services, and having real-time visibility of study performance have never been more critical. Leveraging intelligent tools that can help you manage critical financial resources, effectively sell and deliver project-based services, manage valuable human capital assets, and quickly react to changing client needs can be the difference between success and failure.
    For CROs firms that require an adaptable and easy-to-use business system with proven industry-specific functionality, SAGlobal offers the Microsoft Dynamics 365 cloud-based suite of intelligent ERP and CRM solutions, along with our industry-specific extensions – Projects+.

    • Easily expand into new global markets, assimilate new acquisitions, and accommodate changes to your organizational structure.
    • Manage the complete lifecycle of a study, from business development through revenue recognition, in a single integrated system.
    • Maximize study profitability by streamlining key study-related business processes such as pricing, time and expense management, and billing.
    • Optimize resource management practices to maximize utilization levels across your employee base.
    • Provide Project Managers and Study Directors with tools to more effectively manage their studies.
    SAGlobal has worked with a number of CROs looking to enhance the performance of their business through the implementation of a new ERP and CRM solution. Our Microsoft Dynamics 365 software solution and expert consulting services can help CROs not only address the challenges that they face today, but enable a scalable and flexible platform that will support their business well into the future.
