Leading Manufacturer of Generic Liquid Pharmaceuticals Selects Axway's Hosted Solutions for Life Sciences
Pharmaceutical Associates, Inc. Chooses Business-to-Business Integration Solutions Based on Axway's Breadth of Offerings, Customer Service
PHOENIX - June 28, 2010 - Axway, the Business Interaction Networks company, today announced Pharmaceutical Associates, Inc (PAI) has selected its business-to-business integration (B2Bi) solutions to manage electronic data interactions (EDI) in its multi-enterprise business processes. PAI, a leading manufacturer of generic liquid pharmaceuticals, expects the implementation to augment ongoing efforts to provide superb visibility and seamless customer service to their many trading partners and clients.

"We were faced with unpredictable and increasing costs under our line-item payment structure with our previous EDI vendor," said Becky Ochenreider, director of business affairs, PAI. "We have limited resources to implement our solution on-site, so a full service, flat-fee hosted solution with world-class customer service was crucial. We weighed several vendors, and after intensive research it became clear that Axway's B2Bi technology, managed services and support capabilities made them stand out as the best solution for us. Additionally, we recognized they have a well-rounded on demand platform of targeted solutions for life sciences, which gives us the option to access additional compliance and business solutions from the same product family in the future."

Axway offers a hosted "life sciences on demand" platform with targeted solutions to help companies like PAI address compliance requirements and business needs that can be selected and deployed individually or in combination. PAI will utilize Axway's B2Bi solution, along with the Axway ePedigree solution PAI implemented earlier. Axway also provides Channel Analytics, Controlled Substance Ordering (CSOS), Track & Trace, eSubmissions and Managed File Transfer (MFT) solutions as part of its life sciences product family. Axway's on demand platform solutions are hosted to allow life sciences organizations to reduce costs, speed implementation, expand trading partner community and offer immediate access to innovation.

"Healthcare IT environments today need robust, scalable solutions that can accommodate every phase of business growth," said Ruby Raley, director, healthcare solutions, Axway.  "Axway's unique Business Interaction Networks model makes us a natural partner for companies like PAI, which are looking to streamline and secure their data interactions."
