VirtuIT Systems Helps Accelerate Growth for Collagen Matrix via Their Hosted ERP Solution

Background

Collagen Matrix, Inc. (CMI) is a driving force in the design and engineering of collagen- and mineral-based extracellular matrices for tissue and organ repair and regeneration. Since its inception in 1997, the Company has received many government grants for the development of innovative, collagen-based matrix products in the areas of neurological, vascular, urological, and orthopedic tissue regeneration applications. The Company currently manufactures collagen-based finished medical devices in the areas of oral/maxillofacial surgery, neurosurgery, and orthopedic-spine surgery.

Challenge

The complex supply chain management system demanded a Modern ERP Solution. While outsourcing the ERP system lowers the overall manufacturing costs, it adds complexity and presents the need for tight oversight and controls in their day-to- day operations. Due to the limitations of their old systems, much of their work still had to be done manually which became increasingly more difficult to manage as business continued to grow and their supplier base expanded.
