BOCA RATON, Fla., Nov. 16 CPG has successfully implemented the first instance of Oracle's Agile Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) Release 9.3 at Avema Pharma Solutions, a division of PL Developments. Avema is an integrated single source manufacturing operation of pharmaceutical, over-the-counter (OTC), and nutritional solid-dose products based in Miami, Florida.

The new Agile system went live at Avema on September 28, 2009. "As a contract manufacturer of pharmaceuticals, Avema collaborates with our clients on the development, manufacture, and introduction of new products," said Thomas Crowe, CIO of Avema. "By implementing Agile PLM we have world-class portfolio management and product collaboration capabilities, along with flexible packaging options to meet the diverse needs of our clients. This will allow us to decrease our time to market, accelerate our market growth, and improve the service we provide to our customers."

Avema has the capacity to manufacture 8 billion dosages of pharmaceutical, OTC and nutritional solid-dose products. PL Developments offers extensive marketing services, including package design, branding, advertising, distribution, promotional materials, displays and digital media. The new system is designed to support the complete product lifecycle. CPG is now working with PLD on an enterprise-wide rollout of the Agile PLM Suite and the implementation of Oracle E-Business Suite.

The Oracle-CPG Solution

With Agile PLM in place, Avema gained efficiencies in portfolio visibility, process and schedule management, as well as content and resource management. "We implemented a single repository for Research & Development and Sales & Marketing content, made knowledge easily available across the organization and completely replaced the use of spreadsheets and databases for key functions," said Ali Safadi, Partner at CPG. Avema now has dashboards and reports that enable instant information and fast decision-making.
