Center for Breakthrough Medicines (CBM) Strengthens Capabilities to Meet Demand
“As the Center for Breakthrough Medicines (CBM), a contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO) focused on addressing the challenges associated with manufacturing advanced therapies, continues its rapid growth, the organization wanted to install an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system to support its continued expansion and provide the highest level of responsive service to clients.
CBM’s Chief Executive Officer, Joerg Ahlgrimm pointed to the rapid growth CBM is currently undergoing with 700,000 square feet of ongoing build as one reason for the need for a robust ERP. This year, CBM selected SAP Business ByDesign, as a GMP validated system that covers the organization’s finances, client project management, supply chain planning, logistics, warehousing, manufacturing, and quality and procurement.
“We decided we needed to put in the right foundational platforms as early as possible,” Ahlgrimm said. In order to put that system in place as hassle-free as possible, CBM turned to Utah-based Navigator Business Solutions to support their efforts. “Navigator helped us do this the right way.”
Audrey Greenberg, Co-founder of CBM, agreed, saying that Navigator’s knowledge of cloud-based systems was of utmost importance to CBM when it was shopping around for implementation partners.
“We were looking for a group that’s responsive, competent and accommodating,” Greenberg said of their decision to hire Navigator. “They have the experience and track record of helping clients implement the platform.””
