SapphireOne ERP Software for Medical Research Industry

The increased longevity of humans over the past century can be significantly attributed to advances resulting from medical research.

These clinical trials can be conducted on hospital campuses and in university laboratories. The need for fundamental and mechanism-based understanding, diagnostics, medical devices, and non-pharmaceutical therapies means that pharmaceutical research is only a small part of medical research. Among the major benefits of medical research have been vaccines for measles and polio, insulin treatment for diabetes, classes of antibiotics for treating a host of illnesses.

Medical researchers work towards the goal of applying discoveries to cure patients and improve their quality of life. Research programs such as immunology, virology, neurobiology, structural biology, adult stem cell research, cancer and applied clinical research can be conducted in clinical trials. The research involves:

Excellence in biomedical and translational research

Disseminating the results of our research widely to the medical and scientific community and the general public

Providing the highest standards of diagnostic service and patient care

“SVI recently upgraded it’s SapphireOne financial management solution to a multi company system that will simplify intercompany accounting for SVI. SapphireOne was recommended by SVI’s auditors and installed in 1998. The SapphireOne solution is a complete ERP system combining financials, asset management, payroll, human resources, inventory, project, support for multiple foreign currencies and companies and

full GST and BAS capabilities. SapphireOne has an excellent project costing system, which is essential for a business like SVI’s, which has approximately 60 research projects operating at any one time. The SapphireOne solution has a huge capacity to hold data and has unlimited history – without affecting speed. The SapphireOne solution can be used with equal efficiency on Mac OSX and Microsoft Windows and the reliability of the SapphireOne solution is such that SVI has been able to choose the lowest support plan over all these years. SVI is looking forward to the new upgrade which is being released mid 2005.”
