Jaros Technologies, a leading provider of Business Performance Management solutions, today announced that U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP), a non-profit organization that establishes standards for pharmaceuticals, dietary supplements and other health care products, has implemented solutions from Jaros Technologies as their standard for data integration, analysis and reporting in support of business decisions.
"We wanted all of our scientific and financial information available, at our fingertips and in a single repository so we could perform analysis and gain knowledge across all spectrums of USP’s functional areas," said Steve Mendelsohn, Vice President of Finance at USP. "We needed visibility and transparency across departments without having to access individual databases and spreadsheets and then manually make the connections between data points and key performance indicators. Jaros represents an end-to-end solution that provides USP with new insight and the tools necessary to enhance our ability to view the performance of our business."
With Jaros providing the core technology, USP has developed a "Mission Management System" (MMS) that is the standard resource for all business reporting and analysis. The MMS includes information from most USP departments including Standards Development, Standards Operations, Marketing & Sales, Information Technology, Corporate Planning, and Finance & Administration. Jaros provides the only technology with packaged solutions specifically designed to integrate and present detailed information from across departments, quickly delivering both operational reporting as well as sophisticated analytics.
"While other vendors focus on front-end reporting applications, Jaros goes a step farther," stated Paul Saxon, Director of Software & Systems Development at USP. "Jaros delivers best-of-breed reporting solutions, but more importantly, Jaros brings the data together, creating a cohesive information foundation for its Business Intelligence solutions."
Jaros offers a packaged information framework that delivers reporting solutions based on a loosely configured, quickly customized data warehouse and operational data store. With the most complete package of business requirement based reporting and analytic solutions, Jaros enables USP to leverage the data in their Oracle Applications and disparate systems to gain true insight into business performance and processes.
"With a higher level of visibility into our performance and processes, we are positioned to measure and analyze the state of the company today, accurately forecast upcoming events, and proactively shape the company we envision USP will be in years to come," adds Saxon.
USP is currently focused on the direction of the company and creating more efficiencies through better use of technology. The Mission Management System plays a key role in allowing the organization to grow and remain competitive. USP’s business users began using the Mission Management System based on Jaros Solutions in July of 2006.
