As one of the world’s leading medical technology companies, B. Braun aims to protect and improve the health of people around the world for more than 180 years. The products of the company are presented on the Bulgarian market since the 70st of the last century.

 

B. Braun Group established its Bulgarian subsidiary B. Braun Medical EOOD in 2006 and since then it has been a leader in the local healthcare market, proudly maintaining a longstanding partnership with Isystems Group. The product portfolio at B. Braun is built on extensive R&D, focusing on innovative pharmaceutical and medical products, alongside specialized services tailored to the healthcare sector.

 

B. Braun’s plans for further development on the Bulgarian market are to growth its ambulatory channel sales. That includes opening their first physical store along with an online shop. The good news: with Microsoft Dynamics NAV ERP in place, the business was already well-positioned to set up this new business model.

Drawing on over 17 years of partnership as B. Braun’s dedicated digitization partner and extended experience in web solutions, Isystems Group has been selected to develop their B2C e-commerce platform.

 

E-commerce Integration Framework, an application developed by Isystems Group, was applied to integrate e-commerce platform and the ERP system. As a result, an instant synchronization between physical drugstore sales and e-commerce shop sales has been accomplished in retail process.

 

As a result, the e-shop implementation streamlined some key business processes: optimized retail sales options with outreach to every location in Bulgaria and allowed promotions management to fully integrate with sales.

“Building-up an e-shop for B. Braun was a really interesting project. The challenge was not in the integration with Microsoft Dynamics ERP, as the E-commerce Integration Framework makes the process pretty easy, but in the requirements for the customer-facing functionality. From the very beginning the team of B. Braun had a clear view of what they want to achieve. This, along with the open communication and professional attitude made the project a success.”, said Danail Andonov, Senior Consultant at Isystems Group.

 

“The implementation of an e-shop has been a challenging project that came with a great deal of excitement but with some difficulties as well. Until this moment the retail market specifics in Bulgaria were unknown for B. Braun as it is all quite different from the existing business wholesale model and sales channels. Nevertheless, we had our vision, and I am very pleased that Isystems Group were our partner in this endeavor as their support was crucial not only when it comes to the technical implementation, but also as insights for the business model itself.”, said Nevena Dimova, Manager Controlling and Project Manager for the implementation of the online shop at B. Braun Medical EOOD.
