Cipla Medpro Achieves "Worry Free" Supply Chain Planning with Help from ToolsGroup
Date:9/12/2012

CAPE TOWN, South Africa, Sept. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ToolsGroup's "Powerfully Simple" supply chain planning software is helping Cipla Medpro, the South African distributor for one the world's largest manufacturer of HIV/AIDS antiretroviral drugs (ARVs), achieve "worry free" forecasting, inventory and supply chain planning.

Cipla Medpro (Cipla) is a joint venture between Cipla International and the South African company Medpro Pharmaceutica. One of the fastest growing pharmaceutical companies in South Africa, Cipla found its needs outstripping its existing systems. Contributing to the challenge were long lead times for imported products plus demand spikes caused by government contracts (tenders).

In January 2012, Cipla turned to ToolsGroup to outsource its forecasting, inventory and replenishment planning. The service is managed twice weekly via ToolsGroup's Cape Town office using a Business Process Outsourced (BPO) service integrated to Cipla's ERP system, Pastel Evolution.

Inventory turns have started to improve and Cipla sees the opportunity to significantly reduce stock while maintaining its current very high service levels. Originally targeting a 25-40% inventory improvement, the company now believes final results could be even higher.

"For the first time ever for us, ToolsGroup's powerful and yet simple supply chain planning approach has allowed us to achieve "worry free" planning––dramatically reducing the burden of these processes," said Joseph Ludorf, Managing Director of Cipla Medpro.

"We are excited to partner with a leading and household brand name such as Cipla Medpro in assisting them with their supply chain planning," said Heinrich Dill, Managing Director of ToolsGroup South Africa. "As a team, we are confident in adding significant value to Cipla Medpro."
