December 29, 2023

Project Overview

Elevating pharmacy retail operations

Confiz empowered Dubai’s largest pharmaceutical provider to achieve its visionary goal of a connected healthcare future. Through meticulous optimization and customization of Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations—specifically focusing on the Commerce Module, coupled with strategic deployment of the Store Commerce app—operations were streamlined and achieved regulatory compliance. The transformative initiative optimized inventory management, facilitated insurance integration, enhanced the customer experience and significantly increased overall scalability. 

The need

Building an efficient and connected healthcare future: A pharmaceutical giant's ambitious vision

Embarking on a visionary mission to enhance healthcare services and foster community well-being, Dubai’s largest pharmaceutical provider was committed to bridging the gap between technology and healthcare. Their ambitious vision aimed at creating a unified healthcare ecosystem and integrated retail operations, encompassing outpatient and inpatient pharmacies.  

Within this expansive roadmap, a pivotal goal was set to streamline inventory and retail operations and ensure adherence to the region’s Healthcare regulations. The existing system required a comprehensive customization and elevation of their existing finance and retail systems, enhanced overall efficiency, and alleviated administrative and financial burdens. The client sought a specialized solution and an expert technology partner capable of addressing these challenges and laying the groundwork for a healthcare future where technology acts as a catalyst for accessibility, efficiency, and, ultimately, improved customer satisfaction. 

The Solution

Scaling pharmacy operations: Dynamics 365 Commerce strategic customizations and innovations

In their pursuit of transforming healthcare accessibility and streamlining internal operations, the pharmaceutical provider made a strategic decision to enhance and optimize Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations, particularly the D365 Commerce module, primarily focusing on elevating its retail operations and improving its governance and compliance. The platform’s scalability, robust processing capabilities, and seamless third-party integration seamlessly aligned with the client’s ambitious objectives. 

Confiz implemented a meticulously planned strategy to customize and augment Dynamics 365 Point of Sale for Retail Pharmacies, significantly enhancing inventory management and guaranteeing adherence to the UAE’s stringent medical regulations. This marked the onset of phase 1, a crucial milestone where Confiz seamlessly integrated Batch expiry checks and LOT information with CPOS, aligning with the TATMEEN program’s requirements mandated by the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHP) for pharmacies operating in the UAE. Additionally, the project entailed integrating CPOS with the Shafafiya Insurance Portal, a vital system governing healthcare information exchange, ensuring compliance with Abu Dhabi’s Regulator Policy Manual. The project scope also involved the synchronization of Dynamics 365 Commerce and the backend Dynamics 365 Financials and inventory management system with the client’s core ERP system. 

In phase 2, the initiative focused on deploying the Store Commerce app across 17 outpatient pharmacies across the Middle East region. These extensive deployments and customizations significantly enhanced governance, strengthened operational control, and notably enriched customer satisfaction, establishing new standards for excellence.
