Bristol-Myers Squibb selects OutSystems
Lisbon, Portugal - 06 May 2005
The Portuguese branch of Bristol-Meyers Squibb (BMS) chose the OutSystems Hub Edition platform to create the Intermediate System, an enterprise application that allows for real-time information exchange between BMS and its local distributor.
The system is integrated with SAP aggregating and distributing information about materials, products, customers and stock management, making it available through multiple channels including Web, Email and Mobile interfaces. The information provided by the Intermediate System has allowed BMS and its distributor to further improve their daily activity and achieve higher levels of efficiency.
BMS also needed to connect the central systems to all employees. Like many other large companies, BMS suffered from the “disconnected enterprise” effect where many employees had no access to the central systems. The platform’s multi-channel capabilities, allowed BMS to connect these employees to the central systems providing them with a way to access all information necessary for their daily work.
According to BMS, the platform’s capability of seamlessly integrating with existing systems and the ability to quickly create multiple interfaces for each specific user profile were the key reasons for choosing OutSystems Hub Edition.
The project was implemented by Roff, an OutSystems Certified Partner.
