Manufacturing execution systems (MES) supplier Elan Software Systems reports a new systems integration agreement with IT and business services provider Unilog , a LogicaCMG company. Upon recent evaluation, Elan's XFP-MES software suite is considered by Unilog to be the best MES software package for the life sciences industries.

Unilog, a certified systems integrator for the European market, already is providing expertise on joint domestic projects, and intends to expand its competencies to worldwide deployments aligned with LogicaCMG group international strategy. Unilog and Elan are in the midst of a joint project for a global pharmaceutical company, with the objective to manage the manufacturing operations of a vaccine product line from raw material input to review of the electronic batch record.

Elan's XFP Suite enables production visibility and control throughout the enterprise by optimizing the entire production cycle from raw material delivery to end product shipment in compliance with 21CFR part 11 and ISA 88/95. The suite, which promotes paperless manufacturing, has advanced modules for warehousing, weighing & dispensing, work instructions, and electronic batch record.

Seven of the top 10 health-care companies are using the Elan MES. Customers include Abbott, AstraZeneca, Baxter, Famar, Fareva, Genitope Corp., Ipsen, LFB, Merck, Sanofi-Aventis, Stago, Takeda, and UCB.

"The LogicaCMG partnership strategy is to build strong relationships with key technology providers that offer the best product/market match," says Yves Lardanchet, MES director, LogicaCMG group. "This was the case for Elan Software Systems, which demonstrates a solid understanding of MES challenges for life sciences, proven references, [and a] state-of-the-art product offering. XFP-MES is today the best MES solution for the pharmaceutical market."
