Intrexx Case Study: Human pharmaceuticals, Bio – pharmaceuticals and animal health

Boehringer Ingelheim


5 times faster achieving their goal than with SAP WebDynpro



Products: Connector for SAP, Individual applications

Boehringer Ingelheim, which was founded in 1885, is an international enterprise in the area of pharmaceuticals. Due to the fact the firm was established as a family business, its main focus is on human pharmaceuticals (prescription products and self-medication), bio pharmaceuticals and animal health. Production takes place at 16 manufacturing sites in 11 different countries and there are also 5 separate research and development locations. In total 142 enterprises are connected with Boehringer Ingelheim.

Requirements

Boehringer Ingelheim is a dedicated user of SAP: Customer information, receipts, invoices, QM and additional records are located in different SAP systems. As these systems are not directly connected to the www due to security reasons, a solution was sought after which would allow service providers, customers and international sales employees to have safe and reliable access to the SAP data. Access had to be available on both stationary and mobile devices and had to represent different ERP systems in one portal.

Solution

In addition to United Planet seven other providers submitted their solutions, however, none of the competitors were able to successfully demonstrate the real time integration of SAP data. United Planet could demonstrate a successful SAP integration as part of the DSAG (“Deutschsprachige SAP-Anwendergruppe”) 2013 in an absolutely record breaking time of 10 minutes. The generic NetWeaver Gateway Interface makes this possible. Boehringer Ingelheim also considered a solution based on SAP WebDynPro for ABAP. This would, however, have required 70 days of work and therefore would have required 5 times the amount of resources and take 5 times longer than the 15 days required for the solution based on the enterprise portal software Intrexx, to be operational. Within 3 months the Intrexx solution could be used productively.

Benefits


  • Very fast conversion in a fifth of the time in comparison to SAP
  • Reduced staffing and training expenses greatly decreases costs
  • A significant reduction in the workload for customer services and sales representatives
  • Global solutions which allow optimal access at all times to local SAP data
