ResearchPoint Selects SAP’s Business ByDesign as Their ERP Solution

ResearchPoint has chosen to implement SAP’s Business ByDesign ERP solution. ResearchPoint is a full-service contract research organization (CRO) that provides drug and device development services globally. ResearchPoint manages clinical trials for companies from study start-up through delivery of the final report.

Business ByDesign is SAP’s on demand ERP software that offers solutions to small to mid-sized businesses. SAP’s Business ByDesign provides large-scale business applications to smaller companies. The SAP ERP software is designed with the built-in functionality to manage financials, CRM, HR, projects, procurement, and supply chain. The software is available as a SaaS ERP solution that SAP installs, maintains and upgrades.

As ResearchPoint continued to scale, the company realized it needed a scalable solution as their ERP software. ResearchPoint chose SAP’s Business ByDesign ERP software because it includes business analytics, project profitability, and automated project billing. “We now have greater transparency into our projects and across all operations of the business, allowing us to make faster decisions, saving both time and money for our clients,” said ResearchPoint CFO, Patti Charlton.

“People are often surprised that a company of ResearchPoint’s size, with just a single IT staff is running SAP.” ResearchPoint puts major emphasis on transparency across project management activities. The company has praised SAP for making ERP software solutions that specifically cater to small to mid-sized markets. “On-demand is a remarkable thing,” said Charlton. “It allows companies of our size to get that big company functionality without the huge price tag.”
