The Searle Company Limited, subsidiary of IBL Group, is listed as one of the leading pharmaceutical companies in Pakistan. Having two state of the art, fully equipped manufacturing facilities in Karachi, and Lahore, Searle understands how important it is to have fully streamlined business processes. The company, investing more and more on its manufacturing facilities, was in dire need of a solution, one that would integrate their processes seamlessly and provide them an in-depth reporting to complement their decision making in real-time for their future endeavors.

To complement their business processes, Searle decided to move to SAP ERP, where all their valuable data was captured into an integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. For implementation, Searle opted for IBL-Unisys, SAP Gold partner and one of the leading solutions and services provider in the field of technology in Pakistan. With its remarkable services and proven processes, it enhances and simplifies the complex IT environments.

Mr. Nadeem Ahmed, MD/CEO, The Searle Company stated,

To help Searle enhance their enterprise processes, IBL-Unisys implemented SAP’s standard ERP software processes in compliance with the accounting standards and GMP guidelines provided by the regulatory bodies (DRAP). All the business areas were integrated, providing a bigger picture of analysis and reporting. Strict controls were built from a manufacturing point of view, standardizing their manufacturing related processes and making costing more effective.
