New England Biolabs Undergoes Technology Strategy Shift
Biotechnology Company Updates Its Production Processes to SAP S/4HANA
When New England Biolabs (NEB), a provider of materials for genetic research, started experiencing double-digit growth, it became apparent that manually tracking inventory in notebooks, spreadsheets, and home-grown applications would no longer support the demand of its customers. And, because of the nature of the industry, traceability of raw materials and product costing was of the utmost importance. NEB knew it needed to experiment with new technology for a better production planning process. Hear how NEB implemented SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA on a hosted cloud environment — followed by a full SAP S/4HANA implementation — and gained real-time visibility into inventory management, created efficient digital processes for procurement and production planning and execution, improved product costing, and enhanced customer service through accurate order fulfillment.
