DHC DR. HERTERICH & CONSULTANTS

DHC Consulting Group has specialised in the implementation and validation of SAP systems in the pharmaceuticals and medical technology industries for over 20 years. The experience we have gained from a wide range of successful consulting projects combined with our deep process knowledge now makes us one of the leading SAP consulting partners for topics related to the life sciences.

These also include in particular the sector-specific requirements for GxP Compliance and the validation of computer systems. We are deeply familiar with the relevant regulatory frameworks (e.g. 21 CFR, EU GMP, MDR, IVDR, etc.) and guidelines (e.g. GAMP 5).

We also offer modern concepts and solutions for quality management based on the SAP solutions QM and QIM that can be used with companies in any industry. Thanks to our long experience, we know which QM models can be implemented with SAP technologies and the benefits that integrated quality management systems can bring to your business.

For all of our DHC consulting areas, we have developed our own methods, approaches and templates. Where necessary, these are then supplemented by technical DHC solutions based on DHC VISION or SAP Solution Manager, for example. This helps to significantly accelerate projects while also improving their quality – as can be seen from our long list of references and successful regulatory and customer audits.
