Case studies of how Paragon Software Solutions improved business processes in the medical industry

Medical — Hospice

Converting from one financial application to another – even if it’s an upgrade from Microsoft Dynamics GP version 9 to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 – makes even the most seasoned controllers and accountants take notice.

For one, there’s reporting. And making sure that all your company’s current and historical data is seamlessly transferred into the new system. That’s what Charleston, Massachusetts-based Beacon Hospice faced in November 2010. With 24 locations in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Maine, Beacon’s approach to hospice care creates a patient and family environment of hope, comfort and dignity. Founded in 1993 to better serve the needs of terminally ill patients, the company offers a range of palliative care, private duty, end stage dementia and end stage cardiac programs.

Medical Instrumentation

The accounting and manufacturing solution – Microsoft Dynamics GP – has proved the perfect solution for Union Bio as well. It provides the integrated tools needed to fully understand financial data and processes, taking full advantage of the information available from a financial system. Union Bio also implemented the manufacturing software module to help schedule product deliveries, optimize inventory and enhance manufacturing throughput and business performance. Further system requirements included accurate management of multi-currency transactions, inventory serial and lot number tracking and controls for managing multiple sites and inventory locations.

Paragon specializes in taking the best-of-breed financial application and integrating it with both vertical and horizontal applications. Serving 50 clients nationwide, the company eases system transitions for a wide range of organizations like Union Bio.
