Medical devices sale are controlled by different authorities (FDA, EU-MDR, NMPA, CDSCO) worldwide, and every country has different rules to control it. These rules are very stringent. If not followed as stated, there are hefty fines and loss of business, which may damage the company`s image in that country. Thus, the sales of medical devices must be managed using an automated solution. SAP is the best product for providing an integrated solution to control the medical device supply chain.
